  • Episode 195 – Joy and Death

    flat,800x800,070,fThis week we tackle the question of death and celebration.  As atheists, we view death as the end of existence.  Does it naturally follow that all death is a tragedy?  If we allow ourselves to feel some amount of pleasure in the death of someone we abhor, is that behavior abhorrent?  We start with some recent deaths and then look at some people whose deaths would, in general, be considered an absolute good.  Philosophy and ethics abound in this thoughtful episode.
