Hi everybody, last year I talked a bit about starting up a podcast, but never sorted out the technical difficulties. Now I think I’ve managed to do that, and need people to interview, so consider this a thread to offer suggestions.
Topic? As much detail as possible would be appreciated.
Atheist vs Christian homeschooling
Susan Haack and/or Timothy McGrew on epistemology.
Timothy McGrew, the Christian apologist? Probably not, unless it’s an interview-debate. Susan Haack might be interesting, though I don’t know as much about her work as some people. Suggestions for specific topics within the umbrella of “epistemology”?
How about Luke? Possible topics would be his activities post Common Sense Atheism, whether there is anything new information or something that he hasn’t covered concerning religion (academic or public arena), and what he currently thinks about desirism.
I’d love to interview Luke about his work with MIRI, assuming he has the time. He’s way busy with that stuff. He’s has really stopped putting any energy at all into atheism, so he probably wouldn’t have a good answer to the second question. His current position on desirism is here:
it’s a tall order, but i’d like to see you interview john searle re: the chinese room. i am interested to learn more about the moral he draws from that thought experiment and whether it has implications for naturalism.
How about a chat with A. C. Grayling? Discuss The God Argument and/or The Good Book, or something else entirely.
How about Jeffrey Jay Lowder on pro-naturalism arguments, and their responses. Or Richard Carrier on pro-naturalism arguments or how to define naturalism. I feel like many could benefit from a wider view of metaphysical naturalism.
John Shook and Tom Clark come to mind on the same general topics as well.
I second Nolan’s motion! Jeffrey Jay Lowder and Richard Carrier are both must-interviews!
Sye Ten Bruggencate!
You submitted it twice, just a matter of needing moderator approval if you’re not registered with Disqus. I’ve been whitelisting people after they get a couple of comments here.
Peter Boghossian on his upcoming book “A Manual for Creating Atheists.” It would be interesting to know whether he’s OK with people who claim to believe in God but do little to nothing to promote their faith (i.e., they’re essentially functional atheists).
Also, Vic Stenger on his new book, “God and the Atom.” Does he think there’s reliable evidence that the Universe has always existed?
