Atheist News Podcast Project




Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Love,

--Joe

In my outer world, I'm an utter pacifist.
In my inner world, I'd like to see Deepak Chopra and Dinesh D'Souza beat each other to death in a steel cage match.
Comment by Glenn Sogge on October 14, 2010 at 3:25pm
I think all posts containing the name Deepak Chopra should be moved to the Humor group.
Comment by Jo Jerome on October 14, 2010 at 2:38pm
Oh yeah, and in my inner world, I'm also a rock star who was tapped to write and direct the final two Harry Potter films so that David Yates can't fuck it up.

But shockingly, my outer world doesn't 'mirror' that either.
Comment by Susan Stanko on October 14, 2010 at 2:33pm
I have no problem with positive thinking but, within reason.
Comment by The Big Blue Frog on October 14, 2010 at 2:31pm
I think positively: "I'm positively fed up!"
Comment by Chris Hall on October 14, 2010 at 2:29pm
@ Chris Highland
The kind of language people like Chopra use is the same as psychics... very broad and general, open to the personal interpretation of the reader. But hey, if it allows the sheep to self-reflect and maybe come to some greater self-realisation that helps them, who am I to criticise?
Comment by Jo Jerome on October 14, 2010 at 2:23pm
@ Chris Highland -

Don't you just love bullshit like that? In my inner-world, I have proper health care, enough money to eat out every day, and don't have to worry about whether or not my vehicle/house will spontaneously come apart on the highway.

My outer world doesn't exactly reflect that. Big, big difference between the two.

I have a relative who spouts that. Everything wrong with my life, including underemployment and health/financial woes, is my own fault because I'm not thinking positive enough.
Comment by Chris Highland on October 14, 2010 at 2:06pm
After his "debate" with Michael Shermer, in-credibly, Deep-pockets Oprah. . .I mean, Deepak Chopra, keeps selling books and inspiring herds of sheep with profound wisdom like this:
"There is no difference between what is happening in your inner world and what is happening in your outer world. The outer world is just a reflection of your inner world. The world is a mirror of your mind, and your mind is a mirror of the world. But you are neither your mind nor the world; you are the creator of both. Even that idea is only a partial truth because there are no inner and outer worlds. There is only the self-interaction of the one Being, infinite consciousness."

An article from Alternet, about "The Family".
Appropriately scary with or without the approach of Halloween.
Comment by TNT666 on October 10, 2010 at 8:11pm
@david could you please put some meat with your links "this just in" and "tip100921" does not constitute much of an incentive to click a link... just an idea... :)

Personally, in the sense of protecting my computer from spam, I like to have at least an inkling of the content before I click on something. And this being a news forum, the comment should include some news... to a degree... :)
