Episodes

130: A rolling stop  

Well this is it, the final episode of A Christian and an Atheist with Emery as co-host. Please join Emery, Scott, Norton, and a few special guests as we discuss the podcast and what it has meant to us over the years. The future promises many surprises, and we're excited to see what's in store. Until the reboot, thanks to everyone for listening to the podcast. We hope it has been as fun for you as it has been for us.

129: Straight to hell with Glen Veltum  

Glen Veltum of Thinkbetweenthelines.com joins us again to complete the Fundamentals of Fundamentalism series. We end with, where else, hell. Can God still be moral while souls are suffering in hell? Find out here.

128: Fundamentals of Fundamentalism: Sacrifice and Atonement with Glen Veltum  

Glen Veltum of Thinkbetweenthelines.com joins us again to continue the series, this time looking at why God would require sacrifice for atonement of sin.

127: Fundamentals of Fundamentalism: Original Sin with Glen Veltum  

Glen Veltum of Thinkbetweenthelines.com joins us again to continue the series. This time we tackled original sin (eventually), with some detours into what would make Adam and Eve even want to sin in the first place.

126: Fundamentals of Fundamentalism: Sin, part 1b with Glen Veltum  

At A Christian and an Atheist, we like talking about sin as much as any Sunday morning televangelist. We like it so much that sometimes we get off on a tangent or three. This episode is a reboot of the Fundamentalism series, starting again (this time hopefully in a more focused manner) on the Westminster Shorter Catechism's definition of sin.

125: Fundamentals of Fundamentalism: Sin, part 1 with Glen Veltum  

Come get a helping of some old time religion when Glen joins Emery to discuss religion and morality from a fundamentalist perspective. Our series starts with sin, and will hit the classic pulpit-pounding topics that still form the backbone of Christianity in America.

124: Defining good, part 3: discussion with Glen Veltum  

Our series on defining good continues with Glen Veltum from the podcast "Think Between the Lines." Glen joins Emery to give his take on the first two shows in this series, and to discuss whether humans have intrinsic value.

123: Would Jesus support Obamacare?  

Scott and Emery discuss Obamacare, whether Jesus would support it, and the proper role of government social programs in society.

122: Defining good, part 2: discussion with Sean McDowell  

What does it mean to call something good? Attempts by Christians and atheists to discuss morality often end up in straw man debates because the definition of "good" has not first been defined. This is the second part in a series of discussions with various Christians about what "good" means. We continue with Sean McDowell.

121: Defining good, part 1: discussion with Tony English  

What does it mean to call something good? Attempts by Christians and atheists to discuss morality often end up in straw man debates because the definition of "good" has not first been defined. This is the first part in a series of discussions with various Christians to try to figure out what "good" means. We start with Tony English. NOTE: Ep. 122 mistakenly refers to this show for the link to the discussion between Sean McDowell and Michael Shermer. Please visit the show archive and see episode 122 for the link.

120: Scott the Humanist 2.0  

This week Emery continues his discussion with Scott about his humanism. Scott also discusses a possible miracle, Emery dishes about Tony, and we have a real life Stryper encounter.

119: Harry Harrison  

Thanks to forum member Moonwood the Hare for introducing us to his friend Harry Harrison, who is our first Greek Orthodox Christian guest. Join us for an interesting conversation with Harry as we introduce him to Stryper, and in turn learn about his take on Christianity, and how a person becomes a Christian.

118b: Ontological Tony, part 2  

Tony and Emery discuss the Modal Ontological argument in two parts, this is part two.

118a: Ontological Tony, part 1  

Tony and Emery discuss the Modal Ontological argument in two parts, this is part one.

117: Scott the humanist?  

Scott argues that there are certain rules that Christians should not try to impose on others. Emery wonders why not, and concludes that Scott is really a humanist in Christian clothing. Oh yeah, and a libertarian. It's good to have Scott back on the show.

116: Sean McDowell  

Christian listeners may be especially interested: Sean McDowell lends his street cred to the show this week. Sean is an author and lecturer, and a co-author with his dad Josh McDowell. We talk to Sean about his dad and about Sean's own conversion experience, and hopefully will have him on for some weighty discussions in the future.

115: The nature of knowledge, part 2  

Joey and Glen continue the conversation on how we know stuff. Joey describes how it is that he knows God is real, and no, it is not based on what you think. Glen and Emery also pick at the presuppositional argument.

114: The nature of knowledge  

Joey and Glen from the fine podcast "Think Between the Lines" join Emery to discuss the nature of knowledge. This discussion is developing into a multi-part series as we try to pinpoint what underlies the general inability of Christians and Atheists to engage each others' points of view.

113: Gay marriage 2013  

Tony gives his take on gay marriage. Is it normal? What is the standard of normal? And is it bad for the children? Join us for the discussion, and continue the debate on our forum.

112: God of the gaps  

Tony joins us to discuss some of his favorite arguments in light of new discoveries about the mysteries of the universe, and whether he is merely exploiting gaps in human knowledge. And that pesky infinite regress argument is also looked at again.
