When Belief Dies #70 - 'So it begins...' with Roger Bretherton
This week Sam is joined by Roger Bretherton. The video version of this conversation can be found here on our YouTube channel 12 hours after the audio version goes live. Together they explore belief and faith by asking: * What makes Roger believe that Christianity, as he practices it, is the best way to live? * Are the teachings of Jesus from Jesus or are they theological constructs developed later? * Does Christianity hold 'the answers', and if it does, is it because Christianity is true or because it points to a deeper narrative that is true? This is the first of many conversations Roger and Sam have planned, and we are delighted to begin sharing them with you all :) Roger's Bio: Dr Roger Bretherton is Principal Lecturer for Enterprise in the School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln.

Daniel wanted the following to be made clear as towards the end of the video (01:07ish) he makes a comment that he doesn't agree with, here is what he has to say: ‘Really sorry, I realised I said near the end of this podcast ‘*decided* she was attracted to women’. To be clear I don’t think people can choose their sexuality and I never have believed this. This was me  muddling my sentences but I know that some have honestly held such views  and used them against the LGBT+ community so sorry if it caused any offense.’ You can find/follow Daniel here: Twitter The audio version of the podcast is released 12 hours before the video version, and if you want to subscribe to it in your preferred podcast app, use this link.

GoFundMe Ask - Podcast & Video Editing Equipment
GoFunMe Link Transcript of audio: I need your help - my computer is failing :/  If you are here it’s because you either know me personally, watch/listen to the podcast each Wednesday or read the blog each Saturday. I am currently running everything from a 2013 iMac that I inherited from my Grandad, it’s served me really really well, but it is starting to have some massive problems which will soon see it being decommissioned (sad times). When I started When Belief Dies it was a blog, which quickly grew into a podcast and has now grown even further into a YouTube Channel. I’ve invested a lot of money (about £1,000) into the audio equipment and about £200 into other essential elements such as the domain name, hosting platforms, artwork, logos and other equipment that I’ve needed to get When Belief Dies off the ground. I don’t have any money left, and I am currently only able to bring in about £13 a month from Patreon (which is really appreciated by the way!!). In short, I need a new computer and one that will last me for the next five-eight years so that I can plan ahead and start to save now for the other expenses that are definitely going to be coming up in the future. You might have noticed that the video’s on YouTube, although 1080p, are still patchy and blurry. This is down to my computers processing power, and it is slowly getting worse. I’ve taken a lot of steps over the last few months to keep my iMac running, but it’s now crashing during Zoom calls and is failing for most videos as I process them. So - I need your help, would you be willing to put some money towards helping me pay for a new computer? Would you share this GoFundMe with others online? The sad reality is, if I can’t get over this hurdle then we might have to stop the video version of the podcast, and I might even have to stop the podcast itself, as editing the audio is also causing a lot of issues for my iMac. This is what I am planning to use all the money for: PC Build: Plan (£2,025) Video Editing Software: DaVinci Resolve (£ free) Audio Editing: iZotope RX8 standard (£290) Monitors x2: BenQ GQ2480 (£250 total) Mouse: Razer Maba Elite (£60) Keyboard: Razer BlackWidow V3 (£140) I hope you can see, I want to invest everything I raise directly into the best possible setup to enable When Belief Dies to last well into the future, at least from an editing perspective. As things continue to grow I hope to be able to purchase a new camera and other items from the regular and one-off donations as they also hopefully going to grow. Anyway - know I will always use your funds to enable things to develop as well as possible. Thank you for reading, and thank you for supporting my work. #Podcast #Deconstruction #God #Agnostic #Christian #Atheism #Apologetics #Audio #Question #Exvangelical #Deconversion #SecularGrace #Exchristian
