2.40: Acts II, Take One

Whew, that took a while. In episode 40 we finish our scholarly study of the book of Acts, covering chapters 10-28 which is basically a lot of boring stuff about Paul. Also, we talk about some Skunk Dicks, launch into a new Matt’s Anthropology Corner, get a sponsor and reveal a Special Announcement. All packed into this one interminable episode.

  1. I love matt’s anthro corner…. Keep up the good work guys.

  2. A new episode!!! Yay!! (took you long enough 😉 )

  3. So… saying you were a Roman citizen was like a safe word back then?

  4. These are the kinds of episodes I like… except for the part where Chuck said he’s going on hiatus. You’re going to have to pull off a miracle to make some good episodes, Matt. No pressure.

  5. WMcCreery says:

    Is Chuck taking a break or is it a joke or what?

  6. Michele says:

    I am so sad! Chuck please be kidding! I will give you 5 stars on iTunes! Will that change your mind?!

  7. Just cheat on your boards like everyone else.

  8. Chuck is taking a break. He’ll be back in May.


  9. Look, you don’t need doctors. All you need is a prayer:

    “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well … The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

    Doctors are just agents of Satan.

  10. somewhere in greece says:

    Best of luck with you boards Chuck!

    About Bill Maher: what leaped out for me was his moaning about his dad’s peptic ulcer being maltreated.

    The discovery of H. pylori as a cause of peptic ulcers was such a breakthrough the scientists involved got the Nobel Prize. And Barry Marshall infected himself with H. pylori to prove his theory.

    I wonder if Bill Maher has the balls to infect himself with measles and rubella and polio and flu to prove his point that *fingerquote* healthy living */fingerquote* has made his immune system so strong he can brush off humanity’s greatest killers and maimers.

  11. somewhere in greece says:

    sorry, for some reason the link to Barry Marshall’s taking one for the team was not added


  12. Idea for a show:


    This report purportedly identifies a link between morality and theism. The question of morality is one that I find interesting, and when your show touches this issue it really grabs my attention. The report is lame, but I think that it highlights the outcome that theists desire. If Chuck is too busy, I volunteer to pitch in for a broadcast.

  13. Killer Shrew says:

    Chuck… please let this only be a break… you guys host what is probably my favorite podcast and it NEEDS to continue!

  14. Sorry, the chance of Chuck returning is 10^50. Or less then zero.

  15. therbaderp says:

    Chuck’ll be back. I’m sure of it.

  16. Chuck can take a break as long as Matt continues with the help of one of the Church of Awesome guys.

  17. therbaderp says:

    Yeah, what happened to those guys? They had a great, regular podcast, then *poof*

  18. fano'chuck says:

    Oh Chuck, please,I need you. The only thing that could compare to losing the dulcet tones that delight me on a semi-regular basis would be losing those of that other guy. He is also fabulous. Thanks for the memories. I look forward to finding out that your horrible announcement was but a cruel joke.

  19. Patwreck says:

    He May return.

    CHUCK 20:16

  20. Not Jesus says:

    This is still the one and only true podcast. If Jesus can rise from the grave, surely chuck will also make a return.

    Just think of the money you can make when you form the reformed true church of irreligiosophyism. We’re talking tens of dollars, tens!

  21. Matt, please put out a podcast.

  22. Was it the please that put you off?

  23. Ha ha, sorry, I forget to check the site. Chuck is almost done with the testing and things will be back to so called normal. I tried getting together to record but time differences and my spring break vacation, and work got in the way.

  24. In 1979, Edward Seidel, a 15-year-old boy from Saint Paul, Minnesota committed suicide because of the cancellation of Battlestar Galactica. I’m not saying that anyone is going to kill themselves over a lack of irreligiosophy podcasts but it’s a possibility that you guys should consider… Just saying!

  25. Matt forgot to check this site. Matt forgot to go to the American Atheists conference. Matt forgot to read the skunk dick suggestions. Matt forgot to prepare for the show.
    Matt, I think you owe the listeners. Get your ass in gear, man… you don’t want a suicide on your conscience, right? Some moron in Minnesota is probably ready to do it before the month is over.

  26. I’m not killing myself over a podcast but after all the hoopla from Matt about doing it on his own, etc. Whoops is really a letdown.

    Next time you might think of an inventive and fairly horrible reason like the plague or something. We’ll know it’s a lie but at least we’ll get a chuckle out of it.

  27. Muffinman says:

    Horatio is right, I might kill myself for lack of a podcast. It is getting so bad I’m considering giving 2 dollars in donations. Considering.

  28. Has Matt and Chuck ever done a podcast drunk of their asses?

    Have they ever done a podcast stone cold sober?

  29. Ophelia says:

    @Anders, as for doing an episode drunk, they did with the 2014 skunkies.

  30. Irreligiosophy goes into hibernation and now bears are being spotted around Park City. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
    Even the bears are pissed about the show being on hiatus.

  31. @Ophelia – how about sober?
