In this segment from the Middle Theory podcast, Micah is joined by a pair of guests from different walks of life, who have a surprising amount of things in common. First up is Keith Parsons, a professor of philosophy at the University of Houston-Clear Lake. He is the author of nine previous books including It Started with Copernicus, Rational Episodes, and God and the Burden of Proof. His writing argues the case for logic, reason, and atheism, which as we will see as we shift our attention over to his co-author, may at times make for unique alliances. Also joining us is Paris Donehoo, a retired pastor and writer in Elgin, Illinois. After serving 16 years as pastor of First Congregational United Church of Christ in downtown Elgin, he decided to join Parsons in co-authoring the new book Polarized: The Collapse of Truth, Civility, and Community in Divided Times and How We Can Find Common Ground. In it, “An atheist philosopher and a Protestant minister interact in a constructive and respectful dialogue about their differing views on life, stressing the importance of honesty, civility, and community engagement at a time of polarized politics.”
