Ep 435 – The Religion of Science? – Part 1
What does it mean to be open-minded vs. closed-minded? We experienced some kind of “open vs. closed” clash of ideologies when we challenged and deconstructed the dogmas of Mormonism, right? So what do we do with that now? And what about the accusations that some of us simply substituted the cultural dogmas of Mormonism for the cultural dogmas of Science?
Listen in as Randy totally keeps his cool (eh hem…) while joining Glenn, John, Lindsay, and Matt in a discussion of Rupert Sheldrake’s 2012 “Banned Ted Talk” about the 10 dogmas of a Scientific Materialist Worldview. And don’t miss the special easter egg parody about the press conference announcing the new LDS Prophet at the end.
Ep 238 – Internet Impact on Mormons
Randy is joined by Bob, Heather, and John to discuss the impact the Internet has had on Mormons and LDS membership growth (among other topics ranging from the evolving outsider view of Mormons to the latest LDS, Inc. retrenchment via its new policy toward gay parents and their children).
Ep 220 – Froback Friday – Religulous and Kumare
The Infants review two movies about belief: Bill Mahr’s “Religulous” and Vikram Gandhi’s “Kumare.”
Ep 163 – Carl the Casual Satanist Episode 1: Carl Throws a Party

Ep 91 – Taxicab Confessional
Glenn shares a few minor epiphanies realized today in a Taxicab with some co-workers in Tokyo.
Ep 71 – Making Sense
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?
Ep 66 – The Minisode – Bob’s Faith Crisis to Music
Bob shares a few of his favorite songs, their hidden messages, and how they were (of course) written just for him and the narrative of his life. So climb in the passenger side and sing along.
Ep 24 – Who Wrote the Book of Mormon – Part 1
Who wrote the Book of Mormon? Did Joseph Smith really translate an ancient record from golden plates through the power of God? Did he simply make up the story himself? Or did he collude with other men and plagiarize a mysterious unpublished novel? In part one of this three part series, Glenn and Randy interview historian John Hamer to discuss the theory of Joseph Smith as sole author.
Ep 21 – An Open Invitation

Ep 20 – Belief-umentary: Religulous vs. Kumare
