After talking a bit about insomnia, shaking hands with a local dog owner and dating in the pandemic, we turn to a voicemail asking Bart’s opinion of anti-natalism, the philosophical position that ascribes a negative value to having babies.

In response, Bart takes an approach which doesn’t attempt to engage too much with the rational arguments of anti-natalism, saying that we should have an anti-natalist on the podcast to talk to. Instead, we talk about the values of humanity being ‘baked in’, one of them being reproduction, and the fact that we tend to value contradicting things, leading to optimal ethics and situational ethics.

Where did our popular ideas of heaven and hell come from? Did Jesus teach eternal torture? How did our notions of the afterlife evolve?

Bart Ehrman is the author of over 30 books, including six New York Times bestsellers explaining critical biblical scholarship to a popular audience.

In this conversation with Bart Campolo, Ehrman talks about the difference between agnosticism and atheism and why he considers himself both, why the words translated ‘hell’ don’t mean what we think they do, how Jesus talked of ‘eternal life’, the early church theology of heaven and hell, how Jews of the 1st century understood bodily resurrection, the origin of the devil, our ideas of the afterlife and cosmic justice, whether we should try to deconvert people who are wavering in their faith, and more.

“Hey Bart. As I grew up, prayer was touted as the answer to everything. Now with the shutdowns and loss associated with COVID-19, I still miss the feeling I had when I could ‘give it all to Jesus.’ I suppose this is part of taking back control of my own life and not depending on a higher, all-knowing power to save me all the time. But I still feel feel like I’ve lost something very powerful, if only in my own mind. Any ideas of how to move beyond this? Is it just a grieving process that I need to go through?” – Jonathan

“Hi Bart. I am concerned. During this strange and surreal time (I work in a hospital in the UK), I am finding myself more and more ‘sucked in’ to Christianity and have been attending Church services regularly. I do not want to be Christian but I am finding much support and solace within their boundaries and I can feel myself submitting to their ways!!” – Debbie

In this episode, we attempt an answer to both these (related) questions and give a little preview of the next one. Includes an update on life during the pandemic.

It’s been a hard week for Bart! Episode 509 of this podcast featured his conversation with Michael Dowd, a fellow ‘apocalyoptimist’ who shares Bart’s belief that a great societal collapse is inevitable, and that the current pandemic represents the beginning of a difficult time for humanity.

Bart’s son Roman Campolo listened, and hated the episode. Not only did Roman have strong criticisms of Dowd, collapse-thinking, and the tone and content of the conversation itself, but he feels that Bart is wasting his unique skill set and intellect on apocalyptic thinking at a time when he could be applying himself to this moment more effectively.

In this episode, Roman lets Bart have it, firing on all cylinders. We thought about some different titles for this episode:

“Roman v Bart”
“An on-mic intervention”
“About last week…”
“A podcast massacre”
“Roman on a rampage”
“Bart gets taken to the woodshed”
“Roman takes no prisoners”

Ultimately, Bart acknowledges the validity of much of the criticism, and admits to feeling some paralysis in the face of the pandemic. He believes his mission is to offer strength and encouragement in a time of crisis, and to be a source of hope. The response to last week’s episode – from Roman, producer John Wright and others – is a call to be better than we were last week.

As Bart says in the intro, if you’re not comfortable with verbal conflict, or don’t want to hear a robust argument right now, you may want to skip to the one-hour mark and listen through to the end from there. But if you kinda want to hear a good old-fashioned brawl, this is your episode!

Roman also features heavily through Bart’s story of his first psychedelic experience. Hear it at Patreon.com/HumanizeMe. And our deepest thanks for your continued – and even increased – support over there; it means a lot.
