    Nice podcast, CenterofMass crew. I mean that sincerely! Thank you for clearly and thoughtfully answering my questions. For the record, when I suggested the need for believers and non-believers to “get along” I did not intend that to mean that in doing so, atheists should submit to being stomped on by believers. Sadly, I can see how aquiescence on your part might be the expectation of others who would ask you to “get along.” However, that is not what I meant. Cooperation in civic projects and charity are more of what I had in mind.

    Your segment about the holiday season was great as well! I have often wondered why atheists celebrate Christmas, but now it makes sense to me. Christmas in America is indeed very secularized, and it is plain to see how the notions of family, kindness, friendship good-will and generosity can be shared by people of all belief systems or lack-thereof, whichever the case may be. So Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all! (by the way, your description of Hanukkah seemed relatively accurate to this Gentile!)

    Lastly, believe it or not, while I am a person of faith, I am also a Libertarian and I agree with some (most) of your political points. I look forward to your next podcast.

    Thanks a lot for the feedback, Ziz. We appreciate you listening, and we’re glad we could make our positions clearer to you, so Atheists are a bit more understandable. That’s one of the main purposes of this podcast.
