  • Episode 17 – The Contender

    Welcome to another in-depth movie episode on Geeks Without God.  We decided to watch The Contender after going over the listener answers we received in Episode 13.  The film stars Joan Allen, Jeff Bridges, Christian Slater and Gary Oldman and features an atheist protagonist.  While her atheism is not the central source of conflict, it is quite relevant to the story.  We get totally bogged down in how the media can be used to manipulate opinion. After we discuss our response to the movie, we review Jordan Kronick’s answers to our five questions.

  • Episode 13 – Atheism Plus

    This week is an all atheism episode!  We explore the difference in terminology between “atheist, non-believer,” and “skeptic.”  We talk about how we self identify our own beliefs about god and then we start talking about the atheism plus movement.  We get into very serious conversations about social justice and feminism as part of the atheist movement. We also give a shout out to Kammy from episode 2 for the fantastic burgers we had at her house.  Then Molly’s cousin answers our five questions and we talk about his responses. We get totally sidetracked talking about evolutionary adaptations of Chihuahuas.

    Remember you can send us answers to our five questions.  E-mail Tim, Nick or Molly@geekswithoutgod!
