514: What are we to make of anti-natalism?

After talking a bit about insomnia, shaking hands with a local dog owner and dating in the pandemic, we turn to a voicemail asking Bart's opinion of anti-natalism, the philosophical position that ascribes a negative value to having babies.In response, Bart takes an approach which doesn't attempt to engage too much with the rational arguments of anti-natalism, saying that we should have an anti-natalist on the podcast to talk to. Instead, we talk about the values of humanity being 'baked in', one of them being reproduction, and the fact that we tend to value contradicting things, leading to optimal ethics and situational ethics.—Follow this podcast to stay up-to-date:Twitter: @HumanizeMePodInstagram: @HumanizeMePodcastFacebook Group: Facebook.com/Groups/1772151613053280The reason this podcast exists, even in trying economic times, is because some people support it monthly at Patreon.com/HumanizeMe.

513: Heaven and hell, with Bart Ehrman

Where did our popular ideas of heaven and hell come from? Did Jesus teach a doctrine of eternal torture? How did our ideas of the afterlife evolve?Bart Ehrman is the author of over 30 books, including six New York Times bestselling books explaining critical biblical scholarship to a popular audience.In this conversation with Bart Campolo, Ehrman talks about the difference between agnosticism and atheism and why he considers himself both, why the words translated 'hell' don't mean what we think they do, how Jesus talked of 'eternal life', the early church theology of heaven and hell, how Jews of the 1st century understood bodily resurrection, the origin of the devil, our ideas of the afterlife and cosmic justice, whether we should try to deconvert people who are wavering in their faith, and more.Pick up his new book, Heaven and Hell, at https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Heaven-and-Hell/Bart-D-Ehrman/9781501136733.

512: Missing Jesus in the pandemic

"Hey Bart. As I grew up, prayer was touted as the answer to everything. Now with the shutdowns and loss associated with COVID-19, I still miss the feeling I had when I could 'give it all to Jesus.' I suppose this is part of taking back control of my own life and not depending on a higher, all-knowing power to save me all the time. But I still feel feel like I’ve lost something very powerful, if only in my own mind. Any ideas of how to move beyond this? Is it just a grieving process that I need to go through?" - Jonathan"Hi Bart. I am concerned. During this strange and surreal time (I work in a hospital in the UK), I am finding myself more and more 'sucked in' to Christianity and have been attending Church services regularly. I do not want to be Christian but I am finding much support and solace within their boundaries and I can feel myself submitting to their ways!!" - DebbieIn this episode, we attempt an answer to both these (related) questions and give a little preview of the next one.

511: Aftermath of Roman, and relationships in lockdown

510: "You're out to ******* lunch, dad," with Roman Campolo

It's been a hard week for Bart! Episode 509 of this podcast featured his conversation with Michael Dowd, a fellow 'apocalyoptimist' who shares Bart's belief that a great societal collapse is inevitable, and that the current pandemic represents the beginning of a difficult time for humanity. Bart's son Roman Campolo listened, and hated the episode. Not only did Roman have strong criticisms of Dowd, collapse-thinking, and the tone and content of the conversation itself, but he feels that Bart is wasting his unique skill set and intellect on apocalyptic thinking at a time when he could be applying himself to this moment more effectively. In this episode, Roman lets Bart have it, firing on all cylinders. We thought about some different titles for this episode: "Roman v Bart" "An on-mic intervention" "About last week..." "A podcast massacre" "Roman on a rampage" "Bart gets taken to the woodshed" "Roman takes no prisoners" Ultimately, Bart acknowledges the validity of much of the criticism, and admits to feeling some paralysis in the face of the pandemic. He believes his mission is to offer strength and encouragement in a time of crisis, and to be a source of hope. The response to last week's episode - from Roman, producer John Wright and others - is a call to be better than we were last week. As Bart says in the intro, if you're not comfortable with verbal conflict, or don't want to hear a robust argument right now, you may want to skip to the one-hour mark and listen through to the end from there. But if you kinda want to hear a good old-fashioned brawl, this is your episode! Roman also features heavily through Bart’s story of his first psychedelic experience. Hear it at Patreon.com/HumanizeMe. And our deepest thanks for your continued - and even increased - support over there; it means a lot.

509: Post doom, with Michael Dowd

Three years ago to the week, Michael Dowd talked with Bart on this podcast about our modern way of life, sustainability and the future of civilization. When the coronavirus pandemic hit, Bart could think of nobody he wanted to talk to about it more than Michael, so he's back!In this conversation, Bart and Michael talk about their shared sense that the pandemic will be followed by an economic recession or even depression, and that it signals the beginning of the end of our current way of life. Michael talks about the industrial world's reliance on the 'religion' of growth-based progress, the ecological fallacy being committed, the illusion of control we have, the inevitability of collapse, the stages of grief in response, and his optimism about what lies beyond it all.Michael's website can be found at PostDoom.com.On Patreon this week, hear Bart's story of his first psychedelic experience after taking LSD!

507: Initial thoughts on an emerging global crisis

It was a bad week to be away. But while Bart Campolo was gone on a family trip, the world changed. After coming back, Bart shares his thoughts about the emerging global crisis being caused by COVID-19.Quick note: We briefly talk about our worst fears for our modern way of life, including Bart's long-held belief that the economy is unsustainable and could collapse into an economic depression. If you don't want to hear negative thoughts right now, and want to go straight to the more hopeful and practical stuff, skip at 9:42 and resume at 14:35.Some ideas: Band together. Who’s in your ‘in-person’ circle? Learn how to ‘touch’ people remotely. Identify your trusted news sources and use them to verify other information. Sync up and watch movies and shows together remotely (3-2-1-PLAY). Develop good routines.

506: When to tell people you've deconverted, and 2 other questions

On this Q&A episode of the podcast, we take 3 questions in a row!Question 1 is about why Bart decided to tell his parents he wasn't a Christian anymore at the time he did, and how the calculation would have been different if he wasn't a 'professional Christian'.Questions 2 is about starting humanist communities like Caravan in Cincinnati. Bart talks about Caravan and how one may go about using it as a template for new communities.Question 3 is about the impulse to avoid hanging with old friends one doesn't see much anymore, who you suspect may want to change your mind and get you back into your old life.Got a question of your own for future episodes?

If you don't want to hear negative thoughts right now, and want to go straight to the more hopeful and practical stuff, skip at 9:42 and resume at 14:35.Some ideas: Band together. Who’s in your ‘in-person’ circle? Learn how to ‘touch’ people remotely. Identify your trusted news sources and use them to verify other information. Sync up and watch movies and shows together remotely (3-2-1-PLAY). Develop good routines. Listen to next week for some thoughts on at-a-distance friendship.--Follow this podcast to stay up-to-date:Twitter: @HumanizeMePodInstagram: @HumanizeMePodcastFacebook Group: Facebook.com/Groups/1772151613053280The reason this podcast exists, even in trying economic times, is because some people support it monthly at Patreon.com/HumanizeMe.

On this Q&A episode of the podcast, we take 3 questions in a row!Question 1 is about why Bart decided to tell his parents he wasn't a Christian anymore at the time he did, and how the calculation would have been different if he wasn't a 'professional Christian'.Questions 2 is about starting humanist communities like Caravan in Cincinnati. Bart talks about Caravan and how one may go about using it as a template for new communities.Question 3 is about the impulse to avoid hanging with old friends one doesn't see much anymore, who you suspect may want to change your mind and get you back into your old life.Got a question of your own for future episodes?
