Since we’re all proverbially picking scabs (we miss DJ, Robert Price isn’t a good interviewer whatsoever, PoI’s hosts (save Karen) can’t refrain from injecting their own opinions, etc), I’ll go ahead and compare this to the last episode.
I loved John Shook’s response to the (incredibly leading) question about how New Atheists ignore theology and dismiss it because it is “about nothing.” As I recall, he replied “well, they’re right, it is about nothing, but maybe some of us should pay attention to it because a lot of people care about it.”
This struck me as honest and direct, and ought to appeal to both “sides” of the accommodationist/New Atheist debate. The NAs should like it because it’s honest about theology, and accommodationists should like it because it acknowledges that theology still needs to be addressed by atheists/skeptics/etc. What do you guys think? Am I naively missing something to hate in there?
