SORT BY Relevancy
This week on Think Atheist Radio we feature our chat with Dr. Massimo Pigliucci. Dr. Pigluicci is the Department of Philosophy Chair at the City University New York- Lehman College. A double PhD– one from biology from the University of Connecticut and one in the philosophy of science from the University of Tennessee– plus a doctorate in genetics from the University of Ferrara, Italy, he is a prominent skeptic, atheist, and critic of Intelligent Design/creationism and a proponent of scientific materialism. He has published numerous journal articles himself while also being the Editor in Chief of the journal Philosophy & Theory in Biology. He is the author of a catalog of great books including Evolution: The Extended Synthesis (co-written with Gerd B. Müller), Nonsense on Stilts: How to Tell Science From Bunk, and Tales of the Rational: Skeptical Essays on Nature and Science. His newest book, Answers for Aristotle– the topic of our conversation– is a discussion of how philosophy and science work together (indeed, are mutually indispensable) to inform a good, moral, and fulfilling life. During our chat with Dr. Pigliucci we touched on free will, political philosophy, ethics and the evolution of morality, plus more! Join us!
We are back ! After a bit of a rest, we are once again broadcasting live from Bluff Park.
LT Snyder of Desmo Times will share with us his thoughts on the substantial, game- changing contributions to motorcycling of the recently departed Massimo Tamburini.
In this episode, blogger Sacerdotus will speak on the topic "The Universe as a Simulation." Some philosophers and even some physicists believe this may in fact be true. Even Hollywood has touched on the hypothesis via blockbuster movies such as "The Matrix" where humanity is cognitively enslaved in a simulation of the universe.
Are we a "brain in a vat?"
Are we really here or projections on a machine?
Is what we call reality in fact a "Sims game" of sort?
Who made this simulation?
What powers this simulation?
Is this even possible?
Does this prove God exists?
Sacerdotus will touch on these questions and more in this program using philosophy of science paradigms and physics.
In this episode, blogger Sacerdotus speaks on the topic of Religion as Child Abuse. Atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Sacerdotus' own former professor, Massimo Pigliucci have often commented that Religion is Child Abuse. They claim that ideas such as hell, condemnation or merely teaching children about God, Angels etc is a form of mental abuse.
Sacerdotus counters these ideas and shows how they are fallacious and contradict psychology. He demonstrates how these comments regarding Religion as Child Abuse are said in ignorance and spite in order to bait and offend those with religious beliefs.
Ironically, Richard Dawkins received criticism for his remarks from other atheists as well who describe his comments as being "beneath him" and make him look like a parody. Conflating religion with child abuse is offensive to those who have experienced real child abuse.
The Crux was founded by Santa Rosa based songwriter and performer Josh Windmiller in early 2007. Their rowdy and danceable songs are theatrical in nature, often springing from interesting team-ups with other artists. Their most recent album, The Ratcatcher, consists of songs from a play that Windmiller co-wrote with North Bay theatre troupe The Imaginists.
The music of The Crux has been called "Doc Watson by way of Joe Strummer" as well as "pirate cabaret." They combine the texture of Tom Waits with the rhythm and lyricism of the Devil Makes Three and the wild abandon of Gogol Bordello. Visit their web site @ http://thecruxmusic.com
Massimo Marino worked for many years at CERN, an international lab for particle physics research near Geneva, Switzerland and then in the US at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. In 2005 he moved to the private sector, worked with Apple Inc. and then for the World Economic Forum.
As a child, he wrote short stories and novellas but never had anyone read them; it was a personal thing. Work and life took their toll and the writing stopped. Until 2012, when Marino sensed a burning need inside his soul to, once again, take up writing. His debut novel saw the light and received the prestigious 2012 PRG Reviewer's Choice Award in Science Fiction for his book, Daimones, part of a trilogy. Quite an accomplishment when competing against established authors.
Born in Palermo, Italy, Massimo left the country in 1986, lived abroad and now resides in France with his wife Mara. You may see all of Massimo’s books @ http://massimomarinoauthor.com

This week Dr. Elvira will speak with Dr. Manon Bolliger, the founder of Bowen college, director of Cornerstone Health Centre and author of What Patients Don’t Say if Doctors Don’t Ask – The Mindful Patient-Doctor Relationship. They will talk about many things including the rapid changes occurring in health care today, the importance of providing quality health care, what is meant my quality health care, and how it can be accomplished.
Dr. Bolliger has treated thousands of patients in Canada over the past two decades; from rural farmers in Nova Scotia to corporate stressed out CEOs in Toronto, to Tri-Athletes in British Columbia. This diversified experience, not only in the range of required skills in health care and in pain relief, but also the differing mindsets that people have towards their bodies, has helped her identify the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and being able to truly listen and respond from the place where people are coming from.
Her Cornerstone Health Centre accommodates a full team of experts. The Centre has programs for patients that include pain relief, aging with grace (anti-aging) and holistic and preventative family health care. Her passion for healing from the inside out has led her to specialize in homeopathy and the Bowen Technique. Throughout her personal and academic journey, she was led by her desire to understand what makes people change, grow, heal and celebrate life.
She has a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, is a Certified Advance Bowen practitioner, and Studied under a wide variety of homeopaths at the New England School of Homeopathy, the Dynamis School of Homeopathy with Jeremy Sherr, the Bombay School and with Massimo Mangiolavori.
