The modern day definition of an atheist is a simple one: One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods.  

“Not possessing a religious basis for morality, atheists are fundamentally incapable of having a coherent system of morality,” declares Conservapedia. 

But when it comes to beliefs about deities and the people who don’t believe in them, it’s sophomoric to categorize people into rigid boxes and to declare that they have an inferior morality. As detailed on our official show page, there are non-believers who call themselves Spiritual Atheists, atheists who believe in karma and reincarnation, atheists who are interested in ghosts – and a lot of atheists who do indeed have a moral code.

Fundamentalism can take all kinds of forms, whether religious, political or secular. It is characterized by a rigid adherence to religious or other principles and often marked by an intolerance of other views.  In our show tonight, two guests – who certainly can’t be categorized as “fundamentalist atheists” – will share their views on spirituality, deities and open-mindedness.

Our central guests include a paranormal radio show host who considers herself an atheist and a scientist who doesn’t buy into traditional god belief, but studies the esoteric side of science along with hard core math and physics.

Calls are welcome during this show, which will be something of an open mike forum.
