Default AFA President on 2GB

AFA President Michael Boyd was interviewed by Reverend Bill Crews on 2GB at 10:20pm on Sunday 24th May:
"Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; ..."

Beer, if drunk with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit and promotes health."
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

"Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it."

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

Cool, thanks for that 2d.

Cool. Brave to take questions on air.

If they're all as reasonable as Mr Boyd seems to be, then there can't be too much harm in it.

That was interesting. I'd probably disagree with MB somewhat, specifically regarding fear of death, but it would likely be only a quibble.

But I can see why the AFA doesn't have me as its general spokesperson.

Good job by Michael, but most of the topics raised in the talk have been dealt with in detail on the forum, so we could help with some of the "flat bits". Especially the "purpose question", it is a classic and it is important to give a good answer to it, because it can be a sticking point for those who want to break with their faith.
Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.
