The New Atheist Guide to Not Being a Total A$shole – Episode 6: Belief
Froback Friday – Religulous and Kumare
The Infants review two movies about belief: Bill Mahr’s “Religulous” and Vikram Gandhi’s “Kumare.”
Can people really choose what they believe? Are any of us really “free” to choose anything at all? We don’t know. But we’re going to talk about it anyway.
So listen in as Randy, Jake, Glenn, John Hamer and El Tom Perry (aka “the Tom”) dance around and around in word circles. Cuz they are fun word circles. They just are.
The Christmas Jesus and stuff
John Hamer stops by again to talk about the Historical Jesus with Glenn, Allison, and Bob.
Of course we talk about other stuff, too, like belief, and Bob’s endless fascination with Hamer’s “you-say-you’re-a-Christian-Pastor-but-you-don’t-sound-like-a-Christian-Pastor what can I do with this lamb in lamb’s clothing” thing.
And oh yeah, we talk about Christmas a little bit, too, and ask the question, “do you really need to throw the baby Jesus out with all of the mythological bathwater?”
(Answer: No. No, you don’t.)
Glenn shares a few minor epiphanies realized today in a Taxicab with some co-workers in Tokyo.
What does it mean for something to “make sense” and how exactly does one navigate the waters between our thoughts, and feelings, and beliefs? Well, I suppose we could give you the answer right here in this little episode teaser blurb thingy, but then why would you listen?

Belief-umentary: Religulous vs. Kumare
The full quorum (Bob, Glenn, Jesse, Matt, Randy, & Tom) gets together to review, discuss, and compare two movies that both try to tackle the topic of organized religion: Religulous and Kumare. They are both available via Netflix streaming, but you don’t need to see either movie to follow the discussion.
The full quorum (Bob, Glenn, Jesse, Matt, Randy, & Tom) gets together to discuss the first year of Infants on Thrones. They start with a panel discussion to review listener feedback followed by an update from each as to where they stand with the Mormon Church.
