Podcast Episode 10 - The Open Society and the Doctrine of Hell
It's been a long time, but finally the wait is over! A brand, spanking new episode of the podcast. Available for download here.
In this episode I begin by looking at an argument from the Catholic intellectual Fr. Thomas Crean. Crean's argument challenges certain aspects of the New Atheist agenda. I follow this by looking at Karl Popper's open society argument and then consider its implications for what Crean has to say.
The inspiration for this episode came entirely from articles I read in Philosophy Now.
Here are the formal versions of the arguments discussed in today's episode.
