Greetings Heathens and Happiest of Halloweens to you all! In today’s spooky episode of Talk Heathen, the Ghoulish Kenneth Leonard is joined by Devilish Johnny P. Angel. Let’s get to calls! Marlon from the Philippines claims that Dreams (and out of body experiences) are a bridge to the Afterlife. He goes on to provide a personal anecdote where he fell asleep, had a dream, and woke up with a Mountain Dew next to him. Cool story bro, prove it! Paul in the UK is up next, he is having difficulty with spotting his own biases when meeting new people and interacting with them. He finds folks to be more approachable when they feel comfortable enough to swear around him. Setuf in Spain is calling in wanting to know how abortion can be moral. Oh fun, an abortion call. Kenneth and Johnny both talk about the importance of bodily autonomy and how people with uteruses should be able to consent to pregnancy. Apparently, he speaks for the zygotes. Kevin in New York is calling in claiming there is a book of spells (aka a grimoire) that proves the supernatural. Ooooooh, just in time for Halloween! This grimoire has 3 different authors and the book’s title is: The 72 Demons of the Ars Goetia. Ummmm…. Yeah, we aren’t going to take your calls anymore. (At least Kenneth won’t.) Hugh in New Zealand is telling us we should take the next step and say that religion is imaginary and hold the line! He is rather forceful in the conversation, he must be real fun at get togethers and parties. But there is nuance to this Hugh. You are overstating things and shifting the burden and being rather condescending. Alex in Texas says people with uteruses should take more personal responsibility when it comes to getting an abortion. Yes, another guy calling about abortion. Sigh. And again, does consent to sex mean consent to being pregnant? For those in the back, getting an abortion is NOT avoiding personal responsibility. It is making a life changing decision and shouldn’t be reduced to less complex thought experiments and “contracts.” UGH Scott in Texas is an atheist who wants to talk about the Kalam Cosmological Argument. He goes on to say there aren’t any good points to it and is sorta ridiculous. Yes! We agree! Greg in CA wants to talk about biblical reasons for getting vaccinated. Interesting. Unfortunately though, the Bible is hugely interpreted in vastly different ways and he may find trouble in convincing some Christians about this. That’s our show for this week, please continue to be safe in your area, wear your mask, and please please PLEASE get vaccinated if you can. The world is better with you in it. See you next week! Now get out there and get some candy!
