Ken Scherer says:

Tracie’s comparison of Deism with WBC reminds me of a vegan friend who
killed my short-lived veganism by constantly berating me about such things
as my not knowing if the company from which I purchased tofu processes
animal meat! I like TAE, but Tracie’s fanatically insane equating of the
“woo” of deism with the “woo” of WBC makes episode #837 the worst one I’ve
watched. I was a fundamentalist Christian for 40 years (11 of which were in
the UPCI). I am now a deist and gladly associate with and promote groups
such as the UUA. IMO, atheists such as Tracie do far more harm than good
when they go out of their way to make enemies out of deists, most of whom
are pro-science and pro-equal rights. Please, stick to arguing with people
who want to force their theocracy on everyone. Stop belittling friendly
deists and progressive and liberal theists who are not your enemy.

I love JESUS says:

Where is Justice for the victims of Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Nero, The
Bolshevist Revolution, The Vatican Inquisition, the Crusader, People who
kill in the name of God, when Jesus said to love your enemy and pray for
those who persecute you, The ottoman Empire, Napoleon, George Bush Sr and
son killing more than 200,000 Iraqis so they can become richer by
rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan WHERE IS JUSTICE FOR THOSE VICTIMS? Is that
it? The strong crush the weak and you expect me to believe that there is
not justice at the end.
I rather kill myself now rather than live in his wicket and evil war with
no hope of Justice. But if you are content with that then I will continue
to pray for you.
My Justice is with my God when Jesus said:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are you who hunger now,
for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now,
for you will laugh.
22 Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.
23 “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in
heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.
24 “But woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.
25 Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will mourn and weep.
26 Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you,
for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.

gerhitchman says:

To address the last claim about the “truth” of logic… on a correspondence
theory of truth it might seem difficult if not impossible to justify their
truth. Simply understanding them as “axioms” isn’t very satisfying either.

But like the caller said, taking a view on truth closer to a coherence
theory completely does away with the problem. The laws of logic are useful,
they make sense of things, and that in itself is enough to justify our
belief in them.

whitemisa says:

Tracie Harris Is such a beauty…..everythime I see her gorgeous face she
reminds me of one of my Favorite actresses Sigourney Weaver!

Mimi Neko says:

As a registered nurse, I have struggled with “Spiritual distress related to
blah blah as evidenced by blank, blank and blank………….” Though you
are not required to pray with folks (who frequently ask, by the way, and
not only ask you to pray with them, but to lead the prayer….), you will
be ostracized and alienated as a nurse BY THE OTHER STAFF if you do not
comply. Also, praying and holding hands in staff meetings has made it
uncomfortable to practice. I have either faked it to get along, or been
alienated for my lack of belief. I am actually thinking of not renewing my
license after 15 years of this.

Keith Peters says:

Russell speaks as much as half a sentence when he switches it up, and says
something entirely different. Hard guy to listen to.

Aw man these full length ones are peppered with commercials now, what

Dario Maglov says:

“Promoting beeing unreasonable is hurmful” Tracie Harris
Thank you. There are so many people not understanding this.
There are more and more people protecting christianity and attacking islam
because they say there are more hurmful and christians are usualy nice guys.
They don’t understand that by removing unreasonable claims and authorities
you acctually remove all religions at once. Why should we even be
considerate with one religion if the same arguments work for them all.

meh302 says:

Normally I like Tracie a lot, but I was really surprised that she called
hurt feelings “self-inflicted” (around the 38:00 mark). To blame people for
bad feelings and to claim that our emotions are some sort of choice
completely trivializes things like mental illness or the damage done by

GeekVessel says:

Hey, don’t be so mean! How on earth is a guy supposed to get money for
doing fuck all? I wonder what Matt and co. think of this practice of
sticking in a tonne of adverts to make far more money off something that
the AE crew do for free?

William Bora says:

Praise Jesus that Russell cut off that first caller….. now on to the
deist caller.

nickperry68 says:

Frustrating amount of adverts, randomly placed making the show pretty
impossible to watch and follow – had to stop and find an upload without ads
the entire way through

Zhiloreznik says:

As much as like this program, I’m still baffled by some arguments proposed
by the hosts. One of these is about hospitals and pharmacists not providing
birth control because they are owned or lead by churches and that’s a
problem. The supply and demand is still working in the market, unless you
create legal barriers. Even if all are owned by the churches demand still
exists. This gives a big profit incentive for non church lead providers to
supply birth control and take this market niche.

James Troup says:

I’ll never understand why people who claim to believe in nothing feel the
need to spread their “gospel” as it were. Makes no sense to me.

Lennart Ohlson says:

I’m not out here to scorch people, but; if “Religion” had been
“invented”/”introduced”, for the first time in history,in the 21th century:
everyone would make it synonymous with all kinds of mental illness, spread
by manipulative, charming, coercing, calculating and sociopathic compulsive
liar’s; seeking to enthrall you (on ALL levels) for their own social&
material gain.

Religious people;”I can BELIVE, that make’s me great…”

All others;” Great “kiddo”: we call that “imagination”….now now; don’t
cry: we’re happy to oblige if your out “looking for a master/mistress” to
slavishly obey, praise and “suck up to”; if it’s what you think you need…
we’re here for you!

Alek Samson says:

Deism is also technicaly atheism & position is practilcally so close to
atheism. Like there are levels of harm, desist usualy don’t
perpetuate,spread…do any harm,a specially when you are agnostic deist
anti theist. As she said -it’s not even a religion. And when you don’t
claim,have agnostic position, share ”Idon’t know” with atheism & call it
”Something out there” a ”Force” or Einsteinian ”the Universe” &
reject supernatural…I wish more americans would bi like that.
