Special Wheezing Episode!

I'm still too sick to record an episode, so what I've done is taken two episodes of my other podcast Bootstrapping the Planet, stuck them both together to make something that's about an hour long and will give folks at least something to listen to until I'm better.  I do believe that I will be up to recording an episode next week, as I'm feeling much better, sooner than I expected.

Show notes for the two episodes in this podcast can be found here:

Episode 0070: More Mass Shootings

Protect yourself online, especially if you're in a country hostile to atheism, check out for more information!

This episode is a bit heavy on the politics, I admit, but I do manage to touch on a number of non-political things.

Episode 0069: Christianity Rips Off Paganism Part 2

If you live in a part of the world where you're concerned about people spying on your internet activities, I urge you to check out the website 

Its episode 69 and I didn't even make any jokes about the number in the podcast, getting soft in my old age, I guess.  This episode is part two of the chapter Paganism in Christianity from TW Doane's Bible Myths and Their Parallels in Other Religions.  Deads tree editions of the book are available here:

This episode is a bit shorter than normal, but I think that with the way things are going, this chapter is going to be at least a 4 parter, if not a 5 parter.  And if you think that's rough, remember, it's taking me about 4 hours to edit each of these episodes, and I have to listen to them over and over while I'm doing it.

I couldn't find anything on the Church of St. Martins that Doane mentions, but I did find things on the other churches which were built from former pagan temples.

Temple of Apollo, now the Basilica of Saint Apollinare

The Pantheon, originally dedicated to Jupiter.

The Church of Reparata, former pagan temple.
