Pretty darn neato

There are alot of points that you wouldn't consider except for this rare circumstance when theists and atheists are being peacable to eachother. That said, Zach, you don't have to be a Christian apologist just to facilitate this format, do you? In the first myth episode you say that the evils correlated with religion in the past are matters of society and economics, not necessarily religion- but that all the good things, charities and hospitals ARE a result of religion. Don't perpetuate the double standard, brother!

Best of Both Worlds

I have been waiting for a discussion of this nature for quite a while now. Finally, someone had the good sense to put a format like this together. Apologia is a welcome relief to the types of programs where individuals with entrenched beliefs pontificate and attempt to belittle their opponents. Although Dr. Moore and his panelists have differing views on the world and religion, it is refreshing to hear them debate issues and concepts that have been on people's minds for centuries in a civil manner. In the process of listening to discussions between theist and non-theist positions, I have been exposed to a number of important concepts and individuals I had never heard of before. I think the world needs a lot more willingness to put one's beliefs out on the table for examination and this show sets a good example. The participants offer constructive criticism of each other's arguments and seem to genuinely be open to this. All in all, listeners are encouraged to use critical thinking and make up their own minds about reality and social conduct. I am relatively new to podcasts and have sampled a number from both the science and religion camps. To date, this is my favorite. I can hardly wait to see where these guys go next and where they will ultimately wind up. Good luck.

Decent podcast, but not enough debate

This is a review from an atheist. I don't know what theists think of this podcast. It would be interesting to hear. The main mission of the podcast is for atheists and theists to find common ground. This means that they unfortunately let disagreements slide by pretty often. The atheists are not hard enough on the theists and are holding back when I would have seen so many opportunities for serious disagreement. This results in the podcast being pretty frustrating to listen to. It's good to hear the theistic side of the arguments, but I think it's quite possible to be respectful and still have a serious debate about it. This is more of a discussion show where these issues are discussed from multiple perspectives, but there isn't very much interplay between the perspectives and comparisons of them. One example is when one theist brought up a really atrocious passage from Numbers where god sanctions the kidnapping and raping of women, and then proceeded to provide a defense for the passage. The atheists didn't say anything about it while I was practically foaming at the mouth. I can't understand how they could have kept silent about something so infuriating. However, a great thing about the podcast is that I disagree with it so frequently that it gives me a lot to think about and write about, whereas I'm simply nodding my head when I listen to a lot of other atheist podcasts. I don't buy into the idea, expressed in the intro, that atheists and theists need to tone down their rhetoric and find common ground. I think it's quite the opposite. I'd like to see a no-holds-barred debate show between theists and atheists. Theists need to be used to having their ideas vigorously contested in civilized arguments, because that's the way it's going to be from now on.
