    The Rationalists of East Tennessee has made a commitment to keep a 2-mile stretch on Pellissippi Parkway, between Knoxville and Oak Ridge, free from litter.
    The Tennessee Department of Transportation's "Adopt-a-Highway" program has erected signs at each end of our 2-miles.

    Show number 2: Biblical Errancy 

    Hosts: Joe Barnhart, Larry Rhodes

    Summary: Inspired error! Biblical contradictions about being able to see God and live. The contradiction of David's prayer stating he was "spotless" as opposed to his actions during that time. Was Judas repentant or not? The Bible shows it both ways. Different versions of ancient texts that disagree, and the selection of different books for the bible done by committee.
