Church/State Separation and Sarah Palin

What’s The Harm in Astrology?

Deconversion Corner:  Altar boy to Atheist

FreeThinker’s Toolkit:  Burden of Proof, Occam’s razor, circular logic

Main Segment:  The Supreme Court and the Election.

This is our brand new format with multiple segments for an hour length with several people working on different topics.  My favorite new segment is Deconversion Corner.  Andy and Mark nailed it!  (Who’s next?)  We really have a talented cast and the show is better and more diverse.  By switching to segments, I can give the show a more professional look and sound.   It took a week to edit and post and thanks to Rae for helping select the music and SFX cues. PLEASE THANK everyone who worked on the show.  No one is getting paid for this and they do this to help our community and FreeThought Fort Wayne.   The credits list everyone.

Robert M. Price spoke to FreeThought Fort Wayne about his book “Top Secret: The Truth Behind Today’s Pop Mysticisms,” and many other secular and religious topics in the Allen Country Public Library Theatre on August 6, 2008. It is followed by a lively Q & A section.  We aired this as a special Enlightenment Show.

  10. FIRST OF ALL WE MUST DEFINE RELIGION WHICH IS DEFINED IN JAMES CHAPTER 1 VERSE 27 NOW AS FAR AS FAITH HEBREWS CHAP 11 YOU ALL SAY THAT GOD PER SAY DOES NOT EXIST THEN HOW DO WE KNOW THAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS EXISTED?????? WE DO NOT KNOW WE JUST BELIEVE THAT THEY DID WHICH IS FAITH. I BELIEVE THAT YAHWEH IS THE TRUE NAME OF THE CREATOR. AND IF WE CAME FROM MONKEYS AND FISH THEN WHY ARENT WE STILL EVOLVING FROM THEM YAHWEH CREATED US AND IN YAHWEHS IMAGE AND LIKENESS WE WERE CREATED WE ARE GODS AND YET WE STILL DONOT UNDER STAND THIS CONCEPT. WE ARE THE GUARDIANS OF THIS PLANET AND YET WE ARE TRYING SO HARD TO DESTROY IT WHY?????? WE STOPPED PRAISING YAHWEH AND AS A NATION LOOK AT US WE ARE HEADING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET. WHY IS IT WE CAN FOLLOW THE LAWS OF MEN BUT YET WE REFUSE TO FOLLOW THE LAWS OF YAHWEH?????? SO EITHER WE WILL WORSHIP YAHWEH OR WE WILL BE DESTROYED JUST LIKE THE OTHER NATIONS THAT DISRESPECTED YAHWEH

  11. Afraid of Lord Dijon Mustard said

    Seriously? After a decade of ubiquitous Internet access and a well-known Internet etiquette there are still people who use ALL CAPS when posting? Apparently if you believe in Yahweh you are allowed to be a dick.

    I sometimes comment here but I’m not posting my normal information since it appears that Lord Reverend Dijon Mustard is from South Bend, IN which is local enough to scare me.

    YOU ALL SAY THAT GOD PER SAY DOES NOT EXIST THEN HOW DO WE KNOW THAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS EXISTED?????? WE DO NOT KNOW WE JUST BELIEVE THAT THEY DID WHICH IS FAITH.

    I agree that Faith is a kind of belief but they are not one and the same. My definition of faith is “belief beyond all evidence and reason”. I believe that my chair won’t spontaneously turn into a pile of gold. I don’t have Faith it won’t, I have belief (based on evidence and reason).

    It may be semantics but without a clearer definition your first statement is just post-modernist-we-can’t-really-know-anything crap.

    P.S. It’s not “PER SAY” it’s “per se”

  12. I CAN PROVE THAT THERE REALLY IS NO SEPARATION BETWEEN CHURCH AND STATE

  13. IN RESPONSE TO NUMBER YES IT WOULD BE BETTER TO BE THE DICK THAN THE ASS THAT IS GETTING F%%%ed BY THE MASONIC ILLUMINATI

  14. NUMBER 11 YOU AND I WERE TO MEET FACE TO FACE I WOULD SHOW YOU WANT THE DAY OF THE LORD REALLY LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE A F#### BOY6 FOR THE ILLUMINATI AND I WOULD GLADLY SHOW YOU THE TRUE WRATH OF YAHWEH!!!!! NOW WHAT f### BOY FOR THE MASONIC ORDER?????

  15. AND I TYPE CAPITALS BECAUSE I WANT TO AND I AM STILL THE LORD REV MAYBE I AM EVEN YOUR FATHER NUMBER11 ASK YOUR MOM AND SEE!!!!!!!

  16. LORD REV DYJUAN D BARNES YAHWEH said

    WE MUST STOP THESE ZIONIST ,SATANIC TERRORISTS FROM DESTROYING THE US AND THE WORLD WITH THE CURRENT MONEY PROBLEMS TELL THEM THAT WE WANT THE GREEN BACK LAW AND EXECUTIVE ORDER 11110 TO BE ENACTED ASAP
