Truth Wanted 03.04 2020-02-14 with ObjectivelyDan & Nervardia

14:11
Stan in Philadeplphia Defending gold-diggers. It's behaviors between two consenting adults. "Money is more important than muscles." What about if the relationship becomes a dependency? Is it exploitation? It can introduce various forms of abuse, like financial abuse. One of the examples is getting one's education paid for by gold-digging. What happens in a gold-digging relationship when the power dynamic shifts? What happens when the financier loses access to money? Stan says, "No one can consent to abuse." Being lonely and getting into gold-digging relationships should be allowed without judgment. But, money is inherently coercive, which is a risk. There are different types of relationships, not everything is about love. Historically, marriages were about property. Don't go into gold-digging if you really need the money, because the power dynamic may be skewed.

Harry in Yakima, Washington. Transition from new age to atheism
Wife lost her faith and began to look into new age stuff. Dr. Daryl Ray suggested giving her time to grieve her faith. And it worked. She began to learn about atheism and ask questions. And they wanted to share about how they've grown together. The transition from new age to atheism.(36:24). There are many people who lose their friends and family when their faith changes or is lost. How long did the transition take? 10 years. She left the church in 2018 and took over a year. How has their family reacted? The family rejected her, but they are geographically far away. So, they've created a small community of atheists.

42:01
Derick from Alabama. Cults. Teaches a class about conspiracy theories and uses Truth Wanted clips. Will be talking about cults and how people are drawn in. Visit Telltales channel. Being born into one is a cause. Being targeted by good liars. Multi-Level-Marketing schemes are a good example of a persuasive cult. Lies by omission. Love bombing by a cult community who make you feel loved and special. The cult will isolate the new member from their friends and family. Doctrine is fed to the new member in very small doses. If outsiders say that you're in a cult, believe it.
55:06

Start time ?
Paul in Georgia. Life changing heart attacks. Transitioning to Atheism because of his heart troubles. He prayed to God for help and his prayers were not answered.
End time ?

Truth Wanted 03.04 with ObjectivelyDan & Nervardia-Oriax in Pennsylvania-Occult Chaos Magick
Oriax in Pennsylvania. The Occult. Chaos Magick. Practitioners try various techniques and then they share the results with the community. ObjectivelyDan asks for talismans to see if he can practice Chaos Magick. Oriax used the Occult to get him out of a cult.
End time ?

1:24:54
Aaron from Seattle, Washington. Tolpas. Aaron in Seattle, WA. Talks about Tolpas. He feels they are psychological rather than physical manifestations. Making a Tolpa is the act of role-playing, similar to playing Dungeons and Dragons. Novelists who write the same character has created a type of accidental Tolpa.

Truth Wanted 03.02 2020-01-31 with ObjectivelyDan & Jen Aldrich

SHOW TIME-STAMPS

00:00:00 Introduction
00:06:27 Dan?s Weird Job Interview Discussion
00:14:29 What are Christian Apologetics?
00:16:53 Caller: Matt - MD
00:35:43 Merch & Hosts Struggle with Clothes
00:37:33 Caller: Ian - AL
00:56:51 Caller: Dean Meadows - NC
01:17:04 Caller: Jeremy - IA
SHOW NOTES

Jen Aldrich joins us, replacing planned guest Sci-Man Dan who will appear in a later show. Jen hosts the new ACA reboot show Godless Bitches 3.0! (It?s a lot of fun.) Jen reveals an upcoming personal project where she?ll cover a range of non-atheist topics with other atheists, which sounds pretty neat to me.

Dan tells a story of a weird encounter before a job interview wherein someone asks if he?s a Christian...spoiler: the conversation partner isn?t very polite. Also, Jen is verbally assaulted for wearing a symbol someone doesn?t like. How reasonable! She also ends up on a date where the guy tells her he?s afraid she?ll go to hell. Wonderful first date talk, this is bound to go well for him.

Dan and Jen get into a discussion on Christian apologetics history and get into a few apologetic arguments.

Our first caller, Matt, explains that he thinks the left/right political spectrum isn?t valid and is mostly arbitrary. He may have a point to some extent, but there is a utility to be found here! Matt asks what makes something left or right fundamentally, or are we applying these labels arbitrarily after the fact? Jen gives an explanation of where this comes from, and we get into a conversation about how parties can change their left/right alliance, which happens more frequently than you might think. We cover a lot of ground on this call, including false narratives and the general tone of today?s politics being quite divided.

Dan and Jen have a quick talk about NEW TRUTH WANTED MERCH available at bit.ly/aenmerch, and how they struggle with clothes. Adulting is hard sometimes.

Caller Ian hooks us in with an ?out there? topic: he believes that humans (later clarified to be all living things) all share the same consciousness, because, ?How could we not share the same consciousness?? Or, is it the same nature of consciousness? Definitions seem to be an immediate issue...this will be a fun call! After the call, Jen and Dan get into their pasts with Eastern philosophies and ?woo.?

The amazing Dean Meadows returns to ask how we can navigate consciousness without a belief in the supernatural, as there seems to be something strange about the connection between minds and bodies. Dan explains consciousness having clear physical roots, and we have a springboard for an interesting call. (Dean Meadows is a friend of our shows who studies apologetics and calls into Truth Wanted and Talk Heathen frequently. Check those calls out if you liked this one.)

After some brief discussion on telecommunication infrastructure, Jeremy presents a case for an ?objective filter for measuring morality from a secular perspective.? Dan sees it as possible to build an objective moral framework, but is interested in what should compel him to follow that (philosophically, of course...Dan won?t be out doing horrible things tomorrow, we promise!). Jeremy thinks religions remove people?s bodily autonomy and sovereignty, but what if someone doesn?t want bodily sovereignty? Hm? This is getting deep.

Dan ends the show with a bad joke that leads to fun sound effects with new tech stuff! YAY!

Faithless Forum is upcoming, with dates TBA (likely in June). We have merch at bit.ly/aenmerch, and you can support the show at patreon.com/truthwanted, where you can pay for access to the show ad free! Dan is on Twitter @ObjectivelyDan, and Jen is on Twitter @JenDragonQueen.

Truth Wanted 03.01 2020-01-24 with ObjectivelyDan & Eric Murphy

TRUTH WANTED 03.01 for 2020-01-24 with Objectively Dan & Eric Murphy

SHOW TIME-STAMPS

00:00:00 Introduction
00:04:24 Curtis - CO: Astral projection & ceiling fan communion
00:20:15 Update on December 15th ?Prophecy?
00:21:52 Laura - AZ: Update on Tulpas!
00:44:45 Dylan - NM: Conspiracy theories abound!
01:07:50 Tim - WA: Paganistic Atheism
01:23:00 Brock - MS: Religious Levels of Political Interest

SHOW NOTES
On today?s show, the internet screwed everything up so we?re pre-recorded! (Also Objectively Dan is joined by Eric Murphy of Talk Heathen, which is cool.) Our long holiday break is over and we?re ready to find some truth!

Curtis kicks things off with his thoughts on astral projection as a reality. In a shocking turn of events, we quickly find that this person and Eric share a hobby of communing with ceiling fans after using ?shamanic substances.?

On episode 02.36 of Truth Wanted, a prophecy was offered by caller John in Missouri, that on December 15th something was supposed to happen. We never figured out what was supposed to happen, because nothing happened. Huge flop. NEXT!

Laura calls back to update us on the status of her tulpa, and Eric is entranced by tulpas. Laura draws comparison between talking to her (admittedly imagined) tulpa and religious prayer, which moves into a discussion about how the ?feeling of god? can often be found in secular experiences. Eric falls in love with the word ?tulpamancy.?

Dylan seems to think that ?theory? isn?t an accurate word for what ?conspiracy theories? really are. Dylan offers evidence of a 9/11 conspiracy theory--not a kooky conspiracy theory, actually, a kind of unremarkable one. He does a similar thing with JFK conspiracy theories. Eric somehow turns the last piece on JFK into a motivational speech.

Timm expresses love for D&D, Eric shares in that love, and Dan calls Eric a nerd. He discusses his journey as an ex-Mormon who once preached as an ?ex-gay? minister, who came out as gay around 38 after he left his faith. Now, Timm talks about being a druid pagan atheist with a tulpa-like belief about nature...it?s mostly metaphor.

Brock in Mississippi follows up on D&D talk by saying he started questioning religion when people around him told him D&D was ?demonic.? Brock seems concerned about people taking their political affiliations, party or individual figure, to such levels that they seem to be religiously devoted.

Aaand that?s our show! Join us for after shows over at https://tiny.cc/acadiscord after every live stream of Truth Wanted, which starts Friday nights at 7 PM CST!

Truth Wanted 2.14 ? Bionic Dance
Intro
Faithless forum
Kate: Arguments from theists don?t change much
Definition of faith and how people use it
Atheist activism- Kate didn?t grow up religious; Most people in the movement came from a religious background; LGBT+ rights, women?s rights
What?s going on on Kate?s channel?? ? working on a narrative fiction space-opera animation project
Calls
? Charles ? Fort Worth ? Goddess Columbia ? paganism, important founding fathers (Ben Franklin, etc) were part of an occult; was America founded on paganism? Dan mentions Greek principles. Charles says Columbia is everywhere. Charles doesn?t believe in Columbia as a real being but as a symbol. Dan talks about rituals for symbols (burning the US flag if it touches the ground). Columbia is a powerful, inspirational symbol that Charles draws motivation from. Illuminati next time!
? Brenda ? Minnesota ? trans woman, asking about Kate?s experiences as a lesbian woman out as an atheist on YouTube; what is it like and how do you deal with hate? Kate says she is not usually targeted, doesn?t get much hate. ?Most people think [lesbianism] is hot.? Brenda mentions special targeting of trans people from the GOP; transphobia in the community ? conservatives need someone to hate. Kate, Brenda, Dan talk about what conservatives will hate after the trans community is normalized. Speculate Artificial Intelligence and its possibilities in the future.
Are AI?s capable of beliefs?
Kate ? What makes me ?me?? ? I am what my brain does. If a person turned into a machine, is the self still there? What stops a computer from being a person?
? Alex ? Rhode Island ? conversations with people: should I push people to use more precise language? Dan references his video with Anthony Magnabosco, where Christian Dan claimed to have been an atheist at one time, but his definition of atheism was different from how most atheists define the word. Dan says asking about definitions is important, start off that way. Kate- we should be more pedantic about words because it helps us describe ourselves better. Dan mentions the Sapir Whorf Hypothesis. Dan says words matter. People use the language that they think they know but don?t or try to express ideas they don?t know how to express. Patience is a virtue.
Dan talks about having an attitude of open-mindedness. Kate says that changing people?s mind is a good feeling, but we must be willing to check our own sources.
? Jesse ? NJ ? Talking about religion in recovery communities - What about yourself? What about the doctors? God gave you this affliction. Dan mentions karmic influence in Christianity ? it?s because you did this. Jesse speculates that people who reference Christianity in healing circles do so because they need to find something good to look towards, so they point to god. Dan talks about his pastor visiting him in the hospital when he had appendicitis. Kate asks if god is all-loving, why does this happen?
? Adam ? North Carolina ? Wants to talk about why science can?t prove anything. Kate clarifies that science has tentatively shown things to be the most likely, and that ?science proved it? is shorthand for that. Adam views science as a dartboard metaphor. He believes the biggest problem with science is that we don?t re-test things. Some of science might be due to random chance. Dan says science has changed over time, and there is a sense of progress.
? Elijah- what kinds of games does Kate play for game night? Kate mentions Gizmos, Secret Hitler, Cards Against Humanity, among others. The call was literally all about board games.
