Is Taoism Compatible with Atheism?
[my intent in this episode is to introduce taoism to those who don’t know much about it - i.e., history, beliefs, etc., discuss how it is often practiced now, especially in the US, and then share some thoughts on whether or not I think it is compatible with atheism - and by atheism here I mean a combination of new atheism (i.e., activist atheism), skepticism, science, etc. Source material could be encyclopedic if I wanted to, but check out a few things below and if you have time and interest, I would highly recommend the Tao of Pooh - a short but insightful read.]
[[further it is my intent to take no more than half an hour on this, so feel free to suggest other articles to discuss]]
