Our ancestors invented explanations about how we got here, which we, frankly, find childish and silly. The answer cannot come from religion. It can only come from science. We talk about why gods are inconsequential and why we believe that religion will inevitably fizzle out as time goes on.


32: Heathens: Who (or what) was Mithra(s)

In this week's episode:

God has preordained the winner in the SuperBowl as part of his divine plan.  All we have to do is wait to find out who it will be.  Whoever it is, will come as no surprise to god. 

A governor is in hot water for wearing blackface in an old yearbook photo and it is in terrible taste - but it was 30 years ago and Trump keeps getting a pass for wanting to grab people by the privates - today.

Who was Mithra(s)?  A covenant between a Hittite king and his people to live and reign forever if they defeat the armies of Egypt?  A Zoroastrian god?   A Roman sect for the privileged and wealthy?  One thing Mithras was not, is a basis for the Jesus character.  Tune in for the rest.
