On Being: Civil Conversations Project…

Date: June 30, 2014

01) Civil Conversations Project

I’d like to share something with you.

On Being has a project called the “Civil Conversation Project”. What I have watched of these, has impressed me in some way. I thought that others might appreciate these, also.


The “David Gushee and Frances Kissling — Pro-Life, Pro-Choice, Pro-Dialogue” episode, is one that I was trying to track down months ago.

02) It is here

I look upon this as being a model dialogue. The kind for which we all should strive to attain.

…I am talking about how they approach and address each other.

On Being: Jim Bradley and Michael Ruse — The Evolution of the Science-Religion Debate…

Date: June 29, 2014

“We tend to frame our cultural conversation about science and religion as a debate — two either/or ways of describing reality. With mathematician Jim Bradley and philosopher Michael Ruse, we trace a quieter evolution of science and religion in interplay — not a matter of competing answers, but of complementary questions with room for humanity, nuance, and humor.”

…Direct Episode Download Link…

Interesting show…

It was working just fine, when I sat down and put these links together for a post…though I never successfully downloaded a copy of this episode.

Soundcloud.com [a website I intend to explore more deeply, for possible future use] started having issues, before I got this post completed. While I was trying to test out these links [the “direct download”, in particular], SoundCloud just sort of bit the dust…The service appears dead in the water, at the moment I am posting this.

Presumably, they will get things back in working order soon.

I went through the trouble…so, I am posting this.
