• Ask An Atheist Visits Edmond

    Sam, Becky, and Red at the UCO

    I love the “ask an atheist” concept in general, as a conversation starter. Years ago, Red McCall and I set up commandeered a table outside of a Christian evangelist rally at University of Oklahoma with a little sign that read “Ask an Atheist” just to see what would happen. As it turns out, it is a very effective approach for attracting evangelistic Christians who feel they can make a good argument. (WARNING: Best to avoid this approach if you don’t have a couple hours to spare.)

    The “Ask An Atheist” podcast is a lot more than just asking questions, of course. There is also plenty of banter  with the guest, who happens to be the aforementioned Red McCall in this episode. Becky and Sam were on tour across America, and they stopped off in Edmond, which happens to be where my family lives. I would have driven farther, but this was literally just down the road, so I couldn’t miss it.

    (I’m in there somewhere around 40:16 or so, but hey who’s counting?)

    By the way, it’s just a weird coincidence that two different Skeptic Ink authors live in Edmond, Oklahoma.
