In today’s episode of Talk Heathen Johnny Angel is joined by Secular Rarity who will draw strength from callers who give us their prophecies and reasons why Biblical prophecies are fulfilled. First caller is Patrick in FL who feels that being agnostic is the default position, with Taoism and Pantheism being plausible options. What makes one god more plausible than another? As limited beings there has not been enough evidence to convince us of any god, flying camels, or pixies. Currently there is too much junk to get through before we can even accept god claims. We are not making the claim that no evidence exists, we just have not observed it. Not accepting a claim could be a hard or soft stance. Rick from Canada is next, who argues Biblical prophecies are being fulfilled. He uses the example of Jesus quoting Psalm 22 when he was on the cross and the last supper. Did the gospel writers have access to Jewish tradition when these things were written? It is not until we go towards the future that it is a prophecy. Look for scholars that cover the same material of interest that have different perspectives. Is there a prophecy that is not self-referenced in the Bible? Has god’s word reached all corners of the earth and will the end times be a rapid roll out as a result? Xeno in South Korea argues that god is an abstract entity instead of the folklore of a bearded man, and asks if it is possible to be outside of an infinite regress that was created. Do you believe in something that you can’t define the properties of? There is a big difference between dark matter, an actual thing, and an all knowing god that makes decisions and cares who you have sex with. If you do not have a way of defining the god entity, then how do you know it is true? If we used the word “unicorns” instead of god, how would that change things? When is it time to believe something is true? Vivian in ND would like to know how to talk with her friend, a believer who is progressive. When asking the “why” question, get specific. Showing fallacies may not go over particularly well, but having some rivalry might. Respectfully push back with curiosity in your conversations. Thank you for tuning in and remember to support our essential workers! Be respectful to the people out there who must be exposed.
