[chuck]In this interesting conversation, we discuss the concept of “hopeful skepticism” with Nick Fiedler of the Nick and Josh Podcast, who coined the term. We also range across faith, belief, rationality, and the craziness of Mormonism.

Every time I talk to rational believers, I get just a little more hopeful about the future of our species. Fortunately I have found the cure for that hope: creationist tripe.

  1. Good podcast guys! Hey you guys should definitely get Michael Dowd on the show.

  2. By the way guys, I’m a new listener but i’ve been catching up on the old casts. Good Stuff! I’m also a follower of Jesus, and I must say that I’m very pleased to see that you guys are talking to educated, wise believers like Adel, Pete Rollins, Nick and so on. If you’re interested I have lots of recommendations for Wise, educated and fascinating Christian guests you can look into for the show. Let me know, and please keep the good conversations coming!

    I think Charley may be psychic.

  5. I followed that link to creationist tripe. Drooling points to a designer, otherwise if we never stopped drooling, we wouldn’t be dignified. lol! I can’t wait for the next in their series of bodily functions which point to a designer, “Shitting your pants proof of God’s existence” and “Farting: God’s plan for bluedarting.”

  6. Hey, how can i put my ugly mug on my comments?

  7. If I knew that, my face would be up there.

    I don’t think anyone here wants to look at your ugly mugs any more than they already have to.
