For this Download of the Day, I have chosen to post several different audio files (all but two are spoken word) of academics and humorists talking about religion. Some stuff I'm sure you guys have never heard before, so this should prove interesting. In the download you'll find the following 15 files:
  • 10 questions that every intelligent Christian must answer
  • Anton Lavey - Speak of the Devil
  • Anton Lavey on Satanism
  • Eric Schwartz - Keep Your Jesus Off My Penis
  • George Carlin - Religion Is Bullshit
  • How do we know that Christians are delusional
  • Michael Shermer debunks James Van Praagh & psychics
  • Michael Shermer decodes the Bible Code
  • Michael Shermer on Charlie Rose; Pseudoscience, Part 1
  • Michael Shermer on Charlie Rose; Pseudoscience, Part 2
  • Michael Shermer on the science of good & evil
  • Penn Jillette interviews Richard Dawkins
  • Penn & Teller - The Bible Is Bullshit

Michael Shermer is one of my favorite skeptic authors. If you haven't read Why People Believe Weird Things, I highly recommend it.

Have it, it was the first thing I ever read by him.

is the LaVey stuff directly from the film "speak of the devil"? I swear you are the only homo I have ever seen from this state that is as Anti religion as I am and is not afraid to add the LaVey philosophy into any argument.

It is culled in small bits (and not very well, I might add), and provides a unique insight.

Lavey was a genius in my view.

I'd also recommend 'The Demon-Haunted World' by Carl Sagan.

I have the Audio book if anyone is interested.

I've been reading your blog for a while (I found it when you had those Buckley shows up). You express your self so well and always keep me up-to-date on politics I should be pissed about (which I greatly appreciate).

Anyway, I downloaded the link and am looking forward to listening to everything. I came out of lurkerdom to tell you how much I've always loved "Dear God" and to offer you another good song about religion. It's called "Glad To See You've Got Religion" by Loudon Wainwright. It's not as emotionally powerful as "Dear God," but it always makes me laugh.

Thanks, Kate!!

I'm glad you get something out of this blog, I really do feel that for these relative kinds of posts that this is precisely why I write them - because it resonates with others.

Thanks for the song - keep on reading!
