Ethics Talks: Philosophy, Flourishing and The Good Life

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ethics-talk

Socrates said that talking about virtue and the good life is one of the most important things a human being can do. That’s where “Ethics-Talk” fits in. Housed in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Central … Michigan University (CMU), The Center for Professional and Personal Ethics brings you discussions about ethical issues, both pure and applied. For us at EthicsTalk — “ethics” is broad and encompasses things that affect a human being’s flourishing. To that end, students working with the Center discuss ethics-related topics such as academic integrity, intrinsic motivation, procrastination, and cultivating self-regulation and other powerful habits.

A Gobbet o’ Pus

http://edgydoc.com/gobbet-o-pus/

Since it is a truism that the world needs more Mark Crislip ™, I add to my ever expanding multimedia empire. If you want to read these in real-time, head over to Medscape

American Freethought Podcast

http://www.americanfreethought.com/wordpress/

Welcome to American Freethought.

What’s this all about?  Look up “freethinker” in a dictionary, and you’ll find a definition that goes something like this:  [One who] forms opinions on the basis of reason independent of authority; esp: one who doubts or denies religious dogma.

Fair enough.  The purpose of American Freethought is to serve freethinkers of every stripe: atheists, agnostics, skeptics, secular humanists, brights, rationalists, or whatever else you wish to call yourselves.  This publication casts a wide net.  In addition to perennial concerns like reason vs. religion and separation of church and state, it will also cover topics that any thoughtful reader should find interesting: science, politics, philosophy, the arts, and social issues.

You will find no agenda beyond promoting reasoned discourse as the best method for understanding reality and deciding how to live.  This is not an activist publication per se, nor is it a mouthpiece for any political party or special interest group.

Freethought Radio

http://ffrf.org/news/radio/

The history of Western civilization shows us that most social and moral progress has been brought about by persons free from religion. In modern times the first to speak out for prison reform, for humane treatment of the mentally ill, for abolition of capital punishment, for women’s right to vote, for death with dignity for the terminally ill, and for the right to choose contraception, sterilization and abortion have been freethinkers, just as they were the first to call for an end to slavery. The Foundation works as an umbrella for those who are free from religion and are committed to the cherished principle of separation of state and church.

The Skeptics’ Testament

Science and biblical studies are two great passions of mine, this blog however is a companion blog to a bible question and answer podcast i host called The Skeptics’ Testament.

The Thinking Atheist

http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/

The Thinking Atheist is a website, radio podcast and online community which rejects faith as a suitable tool for living.

Far too often, faith (believing something without evidence) is celebrated, reason is distrusted, and people are encouraged not to ask questions, test the waters, demand evidence or think outside the religious box.

The Thinking Atheist icon is a symbol that reminds atheist and believer alike to engage the brain, to challenge even the most sacred of traditions/beliefs, to be passionately curious about our world and universe, and to never be satisfied with the charge, “You just have to take it on faith.”

Enjoy our videos. Listen to the weekly radio podcasts. Connect with others through our forum and social media pages. And benefit from this wonderful and diverse community of freethinkers.

Irreligiosophy

http://www.irreligiosophy.com/

Irreligiosophy means “the wisdom of irreligion” — it is about questioning dogmas handed down uncritically to us and researching into the history, practice, and theology of various religions. It’s about scrutinizing religious claims with a skeptical eye and placing them in historical perspective. But ultimately, Irreligiosophy 2.0 is really about arming atheists to wage the culture war with arguments and reason. We focus on Christianity because that is the religion that we are most confronted by in our daily lives, but we see all religion and all irrationality as threats to the continued advancement of knowledge, progress, and social justice.
