Welcome to Reasonable Doubts

Hello Everyone. This is our first post for Reasonable Doubts--the companion blog to the Reasonable Doubts Podcast: your skeptical guide to religion. RD is one of many podcasts to recently emerge, serving the freethinking community: those who consciously avoid basing their "world view" on any supposed revelation, doctrinal authority, or mystical experience. What distinguishes us from many other skeptical podcasts is our special focus on counter-apologetics. We provide detailed counter-points to the fallacious logic and blatant misinformation used by religious apologists when attempting to discredit skepticism and provide rational arguments for their dogmas. We also defend the sufficiency of reason, science and naturalistic philosophies to provide a satisfactory and morally compelling understanding of the cosmos, human nature, art and culture (so I guess you could say were also engaged in our own "naturalistic apologetic"). We try to do this all with fair-mindedness and humor. Check out some of our upcoming episodes. On the blog well have a chance to discuss topics in a little more depth...and a chance vent our frustrations between episodes. So please keep the questions, comments, and challenges coming. Also to any of our listeners/readers in the west Michigan area we'll keep you posted on events and news of interest in our beloved "bible-belt of the north."

Just a heads up:

Whenever I visit your website, I'm a bit puzzled about how to download the podcast. I expect an easily recognizable link under the description of each episode, but I don't see one.

I do eventually figure it out, but it sometimes take several minutes. Probably some people give up and go away.

How many Christian philosophers, with earned doctorates in philosophy and peer-review publications, have you interviewed?

Is Luke Galen by any chance a doctor?

Wouldn't that be great if he was. Then he'd be Dr. Galen - just like Dr. Galen from "Planet of the apes!"

"These animals are dirty, doctor. They stink, and they carry communicable diseases. Why aren't they cleaned up before they're brought here?"

Great movie!!

Oh, yeah, love your podcast and all...
