Let me suggest that DJ or Tom start a thread for each new program so that it’s out there with the proper title, in sequence.

Anyway, an interesting conversation. One random thought that came to me was that soon we’ll have web sites akin to restaurant evaluation sites where customers tell us how they liked the service and what whether what was dished out was fresh, stale, inspiring or insipid. I’ll probably check out the book at some point to get a sense of religious life out there. Beats having to go out myself. I bet it conveys a better, more direct impression than the made-for-TV services of televangelists.

I’ve promised Hemant a review on his book.  I hope to get that done in the next couple of weeks.  I hate being so slow about it, but I have others things in the way that I was committed to prior to receiving his book to read and write a review.  :?

As one of the folks here who complains about “angry” and “evangelical” atheists, I was pleased to hear Hemmet’s POV on the show. Obviously, there’s room for a variety of styles and perspectives, but I do think we’re likley to make more headway with a scientific and humanist agenda by finding common ground where and when it can be found.
