The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #33: “Meet Jim”

The point of the exercise here at the Faitheism Project is to start conversations that, hopefully, go on and on.  The objective is never to “win” anything, rather it’s to gain something: understanding of what makes each other tick.  We don’t have to agree with each other to have relationships — or even be friends. Continue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #33: “Meet Jim””

Noah And His “Kangaroo Problem”

According to a Gallup poll from July 2019, 40% of Americans STILL believe in creationism. A lot of “those people” are the same troglodytes standing between America and its continuing as a democratic republic.
