My appearance on The Thinking Atheist is up.

If you missed it last night, you can hear it here:)

About JT Eberhard

When not defending the planet from inevitable apocalypse at the rotting hands of the undead, JT is a writer and public speaker about atheism, gay rights, and more. He spent two and a half years with the Secular Student Alliance as their first high school organizer. During that time he built the SSA’s high school program and oversaw the development of groups nationwide. JT is also the co-founder of the popular Skepticon conference and served as the events lead organizer during its first three years.

    I regret not calling in sooner! Got nothing but busy signal.

    I caught it live. JT, you were fantastic. I really liked the way you responded to the religious callers.

    Great show, JT. I really enjoyed your conversation with Mark (I think that was his name), the Catholic who called in. He seemed intellectually honest and willing to listen, but I also appreciate that you made it clear you would consider his arguments as well.

    The next caller, though, what a doozy! Maybe he just didn’t explain himself well, but it sure sounded to me like Justin was saying that poor religious people don’t have the mental capacity to survive without the crutch of religion. I found that terribly condescending. The way he kept talking about how “these people” aren’t like us was really othering. I’m glad you and Seth stood your ground and insisted that we should give everyone the opportunity to respond to good reasoning.
