Everyone Is Talking About God

Safe Sects with Leron Shults

May 20, 2018

Episode 21 - In our very first interview episode Damon interviews Dr. Leron Shults, professor of Theology and Philosophy at the University of Agder and director of the Center for Modeling Social Systems in Kristiansand, Norway. And he's an atheist! We discuss his Christian fundamentalist childhood, his journey of outgrowing his biases, altruistic atheism, and having "the talk" about how gods are born. His new book is Practicing Safe Sects: Religious Reproduction in Scientific and Philosophical Perspective.
