TTA Podcast 227: Abraham's Excellent Adventure


Published on Jun 23, 2015
Today's show is, simply, a reading of the biblical story of Abraham and Isaac. However, author Ed Suominen has fleshed out the story in alarming detail...and he has added a bizarre twist to the tale.

How do most people feel about Abraham's deed (or "almost deed")? His faith? His character? And after they hear this version of the Old Testament account, will they feel any differently?

No calls. No headlines. Nothing but the text, the storyteller, and a fresh journey into one of the Bible's most popular books.

Richard Dawkins: LIVE at the Reason for Change Conference | Point of Inquiry


This week, Point of Inquiry welcomes Richard Dawkins for a special episode recorded before a live audience at the Center for Inquiry’s Reason for Change conference in Buffalo, New York on June 13, 2015. Dawkins is easily one of the world’s most influential and controversial scientists; a pioneer in evolutionary biology, science communication, and the public visibility of atheists. He is the author of several bestselling books including The Selfish Gene, The God Delusion, and Unweaving the Rainbow, and he is founder of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science.

Dawkins is joined by Point of Inquiry host Josh Zepps, discusses how he found his love for science and evolution, the importance of secular values, and how we can inspire people to appreciate and embrace science. It’s not all serious and lofty, of course, as Dawkins cops to being “pretty condescending and bossy,” and displays his remarkable proficiency with an outlandish American accent.

Dawkins, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award from CFI at this conference, brings the audience to its feet with his wit and insight.
