Future Shows

Inspired War
Hosts: Joe Barnhart, Faithless Forrest (with the spirit of Robert G. Ingersoll.)
Summary: We ask believers, "Have you read the Bible? Is it true? Is it a reliable model for morality?" If the Bible be true, while wandering for 40 years after leaving Egypt and before settling in to their new Jehovah given home, Moses and his followers killed or drove out 21 millions of people. If the Bible be true, God instructed the Hebrews to kill the Canaanites slowly, giving as a reason that the beasts of the field might increase upon his chosen people. If the Bible be true, God commanded that the men, women and young boys of Midian be killed. What did Moses command for the young women?

Godless Constitution
Hosts: Larry Rhodes, Faithless Forrest
Summary: Our Constitution defines and creates our government. For 223 years the constitution has been the supreme law of the land. Now theists want to rewrite history trying to trump the national charter of our democratic republic with irrational dogma and superstition. We ask believers to find God, Jesus or Christ in the Constitution. Can you find a president, democractically elected law makers and trial by jury in the Bible?
