Author, columnist, public speaker and proud atheist CJ Werleman has just released a book titled, "Atheists Can't Be Republicans." (http://www.cjwerleman.com/my-books/atheists-cant-be-republicans.html)
We were curious as to Werleman's claim, so tonight he joins us for a podcast that will undoubtedly be a spirited conversation about religion, politics, big money and the Grand Old Party.

In recent weeks, we've been dealing with the human mind and its ability to accept irrational things. This week, we're dealing directly with the complex issue of mental health, specifically things like depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, mood disorders and more.
Blogger, speaker and activist JT Eberhard has revealed publicly his own battles with depression, giving a talk at Skepticon 4 titled, "Mental Illness and Why The Skeptic Community Should Give a Shit." (LINK: http://youtu.be/UI-YvrHZVvk) Michaelyn Eberhard has a bachelors degree in neuroscience and is a freethought activist. Jeremiah Beene studies Ph.D Clinical Psychology at the University of Mississippi. And Dr. Darrel Ray is a clinical psychologist, author and expert on mental health. They join us for the show, plus your calls and emails.
How does the human brain accept rationality AND irrationality? What are the mechanisms at play when it comes to the acceptance of religious beliefs and claims? Are some people more predisposed to superstitious thinking than others? What are the best approaches to help promote science, reason, rationality and evidence-based thinking?
Joining us for this show will be Dr. Caleb Lack (http://www.caleblack.com) a clinical psychologist and educator on psychology, critical thinking and science VS pseudoscience. He writes the "Great Plains Skeptic" column on the Skeptic Ink Network (http://www.skepticink.com)

It's a topic we cover occasionally, partially because the issue of secular parenting is such a relevant issue, and partially because the subject is often as complex and unique as the families navigating through it.
How does a godless parent approach the teaching of a child as opposed to the indoctrination of a child? What are some successful methods for raising a genuine freethinker? What are some of the potential problems?
In this episode, we share your perspectives and stories, and we also speak with Dan Arel, blogger, journalist and author of the new book, "Parenting Without God." (http://www.parentingwithoutgod.com)

In the spring of 2014, atheists AronRa, Seth Andrews and Matt Dillahunty teamed up for a 3-city tour bearing the tongue-in-cheek-titled name, "The Unholy Trinity."
This podcast features the audio from AronRa's San Antonio presentation, and it's part three of a 3-part podcast series from this tour. Enjoy.
VIDEO of Aron's presentation is on YouTube: http://youtu.be/bXHsFlizTbs
On 11 March 2011, one of the most powerful earthquakes on record hit north-east Japan. The resulting tsunami killed almost 20,000 people, and caused a meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. In this special report, the most serious nuclear crisis since Chernobyl. NewScience Magazine
Why should we be concerned at what happened thousands of miles away from our homes? Because Radiation and Nuclear wastes from the accident are washing up on our shores and have contaminated the Oceans of the world.
So, why are we still screwing around with nuclear power?
Fracking shattering the core of the earth! Contamination of our ground water.
Fossel fuels and the war of the nations. He who has the biggest STRAW wins!
In the pursuit to be God, man will destroy this world. In the words quoted from the Bhagavad-Gita by Robert Oppeheimer, the creator of the Nuclear Bomb called the Trinity.
"...I have become death the destoryers of Worlds"
Why should we care?
Because in 20-30 years our children will suffer the consequesnces of our inaction and ignorance.

Callers and Chat Participation are Welcome. Newt Gingrich Fans and Loyalists Join me in talking about our 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate and how he is still ( and will continue to be) contributing in bringing back America from the destruction left by the Obama Administration- with his leadership and bold ideas. Come to our Round Table Discussion. All Mics Stay Open.
Bards Logic discusses Newt Gingrich. The series will be to bring folks up to date with what Newt is doing, share news, discuss his ideas, and how we can help Newt in moving America forward. Get the train rolling and tell Newt we STILL want and Need him as our President.
If you were not a Newt supporter in the Primaries, come hear why there are so many that still believe he IS The Leader America needs.
Newt Quotes: "The problem with President Obama’s golf outings is the lack of strategic thinking and systematic leadership when he is not on the golf course. The confusion over Syria, Iraq, ISIS, Hamas, Israel, and Libya is only one example of the growing incoherence of his entire administration. Lurching from crisis to crisis and story to story with no strategic purpose or long-term implementation makes his golf matches look more consequential than his presidency."
"I believe we are now in a struggle over whether or not we are going to save America."
"The secular elites are so terrified of telling the truth about radical Islam. When you talk about the radical Islamists, we have got to get straight and get serious and talk about it in the right way."
"Have you heard a single national figure tell you all of the crises of the recent past are not economic, they're cultural?"
