Humanist Perspectives on Trent Radio

I will be a guest on Age Smies’ Humanist Perspectives, a radio show at Trent University in Peterborough, ON. Age and I will be discussing a few things. Firstly, is it possible for one to say that they believe theistic belief to be a form of irrational delusion without being accused of being offensive? Is there a polite way to not just admit that one is an atheist, but to say that in one’s opinion, religious faith is by definition irrational and a form of delusion? The second issue to be discussed is why so many nonbelievers are so concerned about being offensive in this way? Is it really because of genuine compassion, or is this merely window dressing or the tip of a qualitatively distinct iceberg? Finally, what does this mean in terms of how politically passionate nonbelievers should conduct themselves?

Trent Radio can be found on radio at 92.7 FM and 95.3 FM (cable) in the Peterborough area, and online at

Time and Date TBA.

    I’m connected to the director of the Clarington Durham Region Humanists, who is connected to the host of this show. Right after I do this show I’ll also be writing a small report to be read on the new Campus Podcast of Centre For Inquiry Toronto.

    Sandy and other interested folks,
    Anyone who has something to contribute to the show can either write me at or call me 705-799-7118.



  4. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It¡¦s beautiful price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
