Episode 14 – Secular Hub Founders

Five years ago a small group composed of 21 highly motivated individuals came together to form the Secular Hub.  The Hub has become an important community center for many more people since.  Two of those original founders speak here, discussing what atheism and the secular community was like before the Hub existed and how it has changed since.

These two founders have something else in common as well in that both live with cerebral palsy, and they discuss what it means to live and work in America.

According to The Secular Coalition for Colorado’s website:

Atheists for Humanity Inc. is a 501(c)3 charity non-profit based in Denver, Colorado. Our goals are simple: raise money and awareness for worthy charities and actively work to de-stigmatize atheists and atheism

 

In case you didn’t see it, the Secular Hub got some positive press last year.  Check out the article for a decent characterization of a Sunday morning at the Hub, made possible by the initiative of the founders

Episode 11 – American Millenials

Some come to atheism/freethought late in life while others are born into it.  Some poor few never get there at all.  Does America’s newest generation of adults, the Millenials, represent a growing body of nonbelievers or a swing back to a more fundamentalist worldview?

In this panel discussion hosted by Chauncey our Millenial panel discusses faith, the transition from it, and a new worldview which is evidence based.  Is the world becoming more rational or is the pendulum moving back toward fundamentalism?  What do the changes we see in society say about us as a people?

3 – Andrew Curtis Forlines – Secular Comedy Home School

This week we speak with Secular Hub member Andrew Curtis Forlines.  Currently a chef and comedian in the Denver area, Andrew speaks about what it was like to grow up home schooled, never visiting or attending any organized school.  What type of religious thinking can create a situation where children don’t have a basic right to an education, and what are some of the consequences?
Andrew and Jesse also discuss the comedy scene, accidentally getting a contact high at work, making scientists better communicators and bringing people together.  In addition to being a member of the Secular Hub Andrew also volunteers at the Hub by organizing and running events such as Secular Night Live, cooking for events like pancake breakfasts, and running Dinner and a Documentary night, as well as other events.  He’s kind of a working machine.
