So what's it like trying to raide freethinking kids in this religious society? I have an 8 year old and a 4 year old. My son, the 8 year old, has been dealing with thoughts of the afterlife since his great-grandma died. I'll talk about how we talk to him about our beliefs, how we deal with the hard issue of death and loss. And what we do without very religious families.Plus your calls.It will be awesome!!
Come have a listen as i and Mc Brooks shares some of his music with us this Friday!!
Bio: MC Brooks is a hip hop artist that hails from the nation's capital of Washington D.C. An eclectic emcee whose maturity and intellect well surpasses his age, Brooks deals with various subjects in his music - including politics, love and relationships, and the love for his craft. Among his musical influences are: The Beatles, Talib Kweli, Atmosphere, My Chemical Romance, The Rolling stones, Ella Fitzgerald, KRS-One and Rage Against The Machine.
A graduate of Delaware State University, Brooks first began making music at the age of 14 after being encouraged to rap by his friends. His interest in hip hop grew over the years as he performed with several rap-rock bands in high school. Eventually going solo in 2005, Brooks continued to hone his lyrical skills while studying audio production. It was during this time that he also developed long lasting friendships with other young freethinking lyricists, including C-Gats and Gripp – which resulted in some great collaboration on each others bodies of work (including the single, “The ARC”).
In 2009, MC Brooks released his first mix tape, "Lines to Stripes, Rhymes to Mics". He then followed up with a second volume by the same name in 2011. Volume 3 was released on October 4th, 2013 which featured the singles "The Overflow" and "Hey". His first full length album titled, “The Dead Zone” will be released in 2014.

I'll contiunue my trek through the list of 100 Questions for Atheists. Every answer comes straight from my non-believing heart!
Plus your calls. Make the episode even better by calling in with your two cents
This is going to take more than one show. I've found a wonderful apologetic site that has 100 questions for atheists. I'm going to answer them all!!
Since this is a website, I'd usually respond in written form. But I haven't bloged in some time and I like the format of radio better. So I'm just going to read the questions and give my answers.
Mind you, some of the questions are really dumb.
Put your helmet on for head desk protection and strap in!
Plus your calls.
May the awesome be with you.
As soon as I realized I was an atheist, I came out. I was lucky. My wife became an atheist at exactly the same time. I no longer lived at home. There was no threat of losing a job. it was easy, painless, and simple. Indeed, the easiest part of losing my faith was coming out as an atheist.
But that's not always true. Sometimes, people are forced to be in the closet. They cannot tell people about this, and face real concequences when they do. Let's chat about that damned closet, and what to do with it. Plus your calls. Prepare for awesomeness!!
As a believer, whenever I screwed up, I could turn to god, or jesus, or confess my sins to a priest. I could pray. I could turn to the doctrine of grace and forgiveness. What do I do now that I don't have that? I still make mistakes, that's for sure. I still screw up. Do I cower in a corner? Do I cover it up and hope no one notices? How do I cope?It's easier than ever before.Plus your calls.
Freethinkers reject authority and dogma, especially in religion. Freethinkers form their own conclusions, based on reason and logic, not group think. And that’s one of the beauties of Deism, a form of theistic freethought: Deists are not expected to uniformly believe the same things.An example of this involves morality, where the World Union of Deists' Jayson and Tim hold two different views.As Jayson explained last month, he believes that Utilitarianism (the ethical theory that every voluntary human action should attempt to achieve the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest amount of creatures, especially humans) is the best ethical theory. But his co-host Tim Wingate disagrees, arguing that Utilitarianism or its variations has historically brought paternalistic, hierarchical, and authoritarian efforts -- sometimes violent -- to achieve the greatest good for all. For Tim, examples provided in Nature should provide the foundation for ethical theory and morality.Do both moralistic views lead to the same result? Is one better than another, or do you have something else in mind? Find out what both freethinking Deists have to say on this subject, and feel free to call in with your opinions or questions.For more information, please visit the sponsor page at GodDiscussion.net.The God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion podcast is a service of The World Union of Deists, a global network and educational outreach for Deism.
When people ask what book I'd recommend they read to become an atheist, I always say, "Read the BIBLE!" This is hands-down the best way to become an atheist. Just read it. Don't let a preacher read it to you. Don't use a study guide or concordiance or whatever. Just use your third grade reading skills and READ IT.
What's in the bible that makes people lose faith instead of gain faith? We'll explore that question in the show.

Ever have a Near Death Expirience? It's when you come close to death, but don't actually die. People see lights, old relatives, or even their entire lives flash before their eyes.
People think NDE's are proof of an afterlife. What if an atheist has an NDE?
Once, I believed in an afterlife. Then I had my own NDE. What does an atheist do with the afterlife after faith?
