Talk Heathen is a weekly call-in television show in Austin, Texas geared toward long-form and on-going dialogue with theists & atheists about religion, theism, & secularism. Talk Heathen is produced by the Atheist Community of Austin.

Talk Heathen is filmed in front of a live studio audience every week at the Freethought Library of the Atheist Community of Austin.

The Atheist Community of Austin is organized as a nonprofit educational corporation to develop & support the atheist community, to provide opportunities for socializing & friendship, to promote secular viewpoints, to encourage positive atheist culture, to defend the first amendment principle of government-religion separation, to oppose discrimination against atheists & to work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.

We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.

    I absolutely recognize that I was wrong about the moon. I have no idea what I was thinking and don't have an excuse for such a basic mistake. The correct answer is yes, the moon is tidally locked, making it spin at a rate that corresponds with the earth's spin. As a consequent of that, we only ever see one side of the moon. The far side has been viewed through investigation, but not by looking at it with our eyes. Thank you for the helpful comments, if I don't own my screw-ups, I have no business doing the show :)

    FUCK YEA!!! Thank you Jen Aldrich for correcting the caller, when he miss used the work "theory".

    He's also wrong about it being rare. It's pretty common.

    You guys are wrong about this. The moon is in a geosynchronous orbit.

    So, if our moon was brought here by aliens, please explain all the other known moons in our solar system.

    All religions stem from the Ancient Egyptian Kemet. All are just as false.

    The caller is talking about the moon being tidally locked to the Earth - that it's orbit and revolutions are synchronized such that one face always points to the earth. This is NOT highly unlikely, as most major moons in the solar system are similarly locked to their parent planet - Mars has 2 locked moons, Jupiter has 8, Saturn has 15, Uranus has 5, Neptune 2 and Pluto has 1. There are 25 other moons of Saturn, Uranus and Neptune that are thought likely to be tidally locked, we just haven't confirmed them to be.

    This happens through entirely natural means. The basic process is that the parent planet's gravity creates tidal bulges on the moon. If the moon's rotation is faster or slower, that bulge is either carried away from or lags behind facing the planet. The planet's gravitational forces pull on the increased mass in those bulges, imparting a torque on the moon's rotation that either slows down or speed up the rotation. Put simply, a bulge forms in the moon, and the increased mass in that bulge results in increased gravitational attraction that resists being carried away from facing the planet.

    This highlights the problem of being utterly uninterested in the truth. The explanation of this process is available to anyone by way of a two minute internet search. Yet the caller takes this admittedly interesting occurrence, fails to research it in any way and concludes it's best explanation is that aliens tow moons around the universe to set up bases from which to observe the development of apes on other planets. I'm exaggerating here, but the point remains.

    I traveled to the moon last night to do some measuring so I could confirm everything this guy is saying is true - but before I could get my tape measure out my alarm clock went off.

    Lucifer isnt the bad guy in Judaism, he’s “the light bringer” “the enlightened one” “the knower of all things” the reincarnation embodied by their “god king” Solomon. The caller was accurate that all Abrahamic religions originated from Talmudism. Talmudism however originated from Greek and Sumerian fables, myths, legends, Paganism, Pluralism and oral traditions, so they’re all a compilation of one another. All of which was “translated” from symbols, not even linguistic texts.

    At least, from what Im hearing, it seems he believes in space. Too many flat earthers around these days, not enough ancient alienees, guess that's too 2012.

    As for why the moon is tidally locked, it's a combination of factors. The orbit of the moon causes a torque on the moon due to gravity from the earth which can change the rotation of the moon which over time brings it into a stable tidally locked orbit. It's actually not as improbable as it appears because the physics will naturally produce this result given a range of starting conditions.

    It's called tidal locking. only one side of the moon is visible from Earth because the moon rotates on its axis at the same rate the moon orbits the earth a situation known is synchronous rotation

    There are lots of planets and moons that are tidal locked, it's very common.

    I forgive you for not understanding the moon after all these years you have been making this show. Sarcasm right back at you 🤦‍♂️ I have Subscribed because you both said LEGO and not LEGOS ! I'm in !

    "I know religion isn't real!"
    Well, religion itself is real, the question is whether or not what they claim is.

    Dualism was a Zoroastrian thing. Not Sumerian. Different story

    Religion in Summer, didn’t have the concept of “sin” initially. Cult involved the king, and it had similarities to other cults around the world, but it was not comparable to jewdeism .They were polytheistic.They were conquered by Akkadians, around the time a large population migrated to now days Turkey. It was a messy time for scribes to say the least. It’s hard to say what really happened.
    If my memory is correct, the two religions can’t be compared. Plus Sumerians were worshipping female goddesses.

    4:10 It isn't a theory or hypothesis. It is an idea. To become a hypothesis, you have to come up with a method of falsification.

    The moon is made of cheese and was put there by alien mice from planet Rat. Next call!

    Anyone who believes Ancient Aliens is delusional.
    Aliens would have left their ancient ones in care facilities and sent only aliens in their prime to explore.

    Josh thinks Moon craters can only possibly go so deep despite their size. Josh, do you know how OLD the craters are? Many especially the widest ones were created when the Moon was MOLTEN, so magma filled them in.

    Also they dod drop a part of the lander on it.

    You guys the moon did ring like a bell and scientists did say it rang like its hallow. Does that mean its hallow who knows.
