This week, join Bob, Joe and Sam as we talk about morality without a religious substrate.
Bob has a good blog about this and related subjects at: http://crossexaminedblog.com/
Here is the (slightly) modified version of “Casey at the Bat”, which Sam opened the show with:
Camping at the Bat
“Fraud!” cried the laughing thousands, and echo answered fraud;
But one party from the Godless and the audience was awed.
They saw his face grow stern and cold, saw his apocalypse strain,
And they knew that Camping wouldn’t let the end go by again.
Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The priest is preaching somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere we are laughing, and today here we point out;
But there is no joy in Oakland — mighty Camping has struck out.
