Newest Mindgasms Podcast with Reid Nicewonder, who does Street Epistemology, or using the Socratic method to ask people questions about their beliefs, on his Youtube channel called Cordial Curiosity. He also runs the SE channel, Street Epistemology. We debate/discuss the similarities and differences between our views on truth and epistemology. What is truth? What is knowledge? How do you attain it? We get into these subjects in the context of many examples and ways of approaching them, including science, atheism, rationality, materialism, empiricism, and consciousness.
Check out my last Mindgasms Podcast with my Orthodox Christian friend Shane Kennedy, my Protestant Christian friend Justin, and my street epistemology friends Nathan Ferguson and Reid Nicewonder, who are Atheists like me. We discuss whether aborted fetuses have souls and go to Heaven. From here, we get into all sorts of other related questions like: Is abortion interfering with God’s plan? What qualifies an interfering in God’s plan? When does life begin? How do we know whether someone is dead or alive? Do souls exist? Can we know who goes to Heaven? Does whether someone has a soul even matter in terms of whether they go to Heaven? How can we know what God’s plan is? Can the claim that aborted fetuses do not go to Heaven be disproven? If so, how? Are there different types of knowledge? Are science, evidence and rational explanations superior ways of knowing? Is knowledge from the heart, or a feeling, better than scientific or evidence-based knowledge? What is truth? How important is knowing whether something is true or false? Is it more important for a worldview to improve your life than it is for it to be true? How can we determine this? Does objective truth exist? Can it be proven both by evidence and by intuition or feeling? Is one way of proving this superior to all others? If so, why?
