||CleanEpisode-06- A Counter Argument to Atheists who ask for “Evidence of God”||To me the most common argument made by atheists is that God doesn’t exist because you cannot prove God exists.

||CleanEpisode-05- If Deists Are Right Why Aren’t There More of Us?||Honestly it is a fair question for the non Deist to ask. If Deism makes so much sense why are there not more of us?

Good start for newcomers
As a newcomer to the Deist belief system, I'm grateful to find what few podcasts there are about the subject. This layman's approach to Deism helps shed light on a neglected topic and attempts bringing it to the mainstream.
My only criticism is that, while the host claims taking a "natural" approach by recording at his duck pond and on-the-fly, he urges listeners to promote the podcast on Facebook and other mediums. If this podcast wants to branch out, there should be more effort and time from the host to make this professional and be taken seriously.
That said, I really look forward to more.
