Miracles & Atheists

The Miracles and Atheists podcast is where truth-seekers and storytellers unpack the TENSION between different world views of the supernatural. The project started as a 4-hour Live Stream on Facebook and is now transitioning to a bold, new podcast where skeptics and believers talk respectfully about faith and the supernatural. Miracles and Atheists is a forum for truth-seekers to discuss tough questions and objections to "supernatural" events and the Christian faith. We also love talking about miracles. So many assertions are made these days, and very few are open to listening to each other in love. Hopefully you are...if so, you'll enjoy the Miracles and Atheists Community (the MAC).

M&A071 - Inauthentic Christians and Atheists (Movie-Making w/ Niel Guilarte)
Capturing ON FILM the genuine moment an atheist experiences the power of God for the first time…is this even possible?    Will it be authentic?    For many, whether believers or non-believers, it can be challenging to ascertain the authenticity of a “spiritual moment” caught on film, without questioning whether that moment was setup, or if there are alternative motives behind the experience.  We can’t have that with Miracles & Atheists, and that’s one of the reasons atheists and Christians are working together to experience “so-called” miraculous events, to film these experiences.  The movie-making process is a unique one and we’d like to share that process with The Miracles & Atheists Community.  That’s why we’re also partnering with award-winning digital media/content producer, editor, speaker and coach, AND our new co-host of the Miracles & Atheists podcast, Niel Guilarte. Niel specializes in high end media creation and post production as well as coaching businesses, entrepreneurs and creatives in developing and bringing their visions to life pulling from over 30 years of experience in pro audio / video production and post production for television, video, online platforms, indie film, podcasting and more.   Nick Snapp and Niel Guilarte talk about what it was like to hit the streets with a camera, strike up some spiritual conversations, pray with people and take risks to see what happens.  We talk about the movie-making process and why people are starting to get excited about the Miracles & Atheists movie.    ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A070 - The Moment an Atheist Experiences the Power of God (w/ Niel Guilarte & Nazach Snapp)
If God Almighty exists, does He make Himself known to those who don’t believe in Him? What would it look like if an atheist were to experience the supernatural power of God for the first time?   It’s a question that’s been on my mind for quite some time now, and one I’m willing to explore.  If atheists are truly open to truth, and they want to experience miracles, as many of my atheist friends who come on the show claim to want, will they?    If I were to invite our atheist friends on a journey to find miracles, would they be willing to go?   On today’s podcast, we’ll explore these ideas and tell the story of how Miracles & Atheists got started. We’ll also reveal where we’re headed.  It’s an exciting time in M&A history, as we turn the page and start another chapter of this wild journey of unpacking the tension between different worldviews of the supernatural.    You’ll also meet our new Co-host! (OR is it Co-hosts?) We’ll see!  Enjoy…    ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A069 - Skeptics: Can Man Really Control the Climate? (w/ Jason Deramo)
What would happen if it were proven that “fossil fuels'' didn't come from fossils at all?  What if they were created by simple chemistry within the Earth, and we weren’t actually running out of oil and natural gas?  What would you do if oil deposits were filling back up after being drawn down?   What if they were [gasp]...a RENEWABLE RESOURCE?    Do you like your Tesla?   What would you do if you found out the cost of producing lithium and cobalt for the batteries used to power your electric vehicles were absolutely DEVASTATING the environment and the surrounding communities in which these resources are being mined?   What if all these initiatives, all these efforts, all this talk about climate change was just the work of a small group of “businessmen” to create scarcity for resources that aren’t really scarce at all?    How would you respond, if you knew that God, not man, is the only one who can really cause true climate change…even though man can manipulate the weather (or can he?)    Bring out your skepticism tools my atheist friends, and let’s apply them to the narrative you’ve believed since grade school about fossil fuels.  Let’s use them to “follow the science” and examine the mainstream narrative you’re absorbing about climate change these past few years.   ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A068 - A Demon Brought Me to Church (w/ Wiley Anson)
For some people, it takes a supernatural encounter with a demon and projectile vomiting to turn it all around.  Depression, pride, greed: gone in an instant.  But what about homosexuality?    If all that really exists is time and chance acting on matter, homosexuality would be no exception.  People are, or they are not, right?  From a materialistic, naturalist worldview, homosexual brains just fizzed in the direction of same-sex attraction, and that’s that.  It’s not God’s doing, it’s just chemistry.  God doesn’t even exist according to most of my atheist friends, so what does someone who doesn’t exist care about homosexuality?   It’s funny though…atheists often question not only the existence of God, but the morality of God as well, and why wouldn’t they?  How can God be moral if He created people to be gay, only to make them deal with everything that comes along with being gay?   But what if a homosexual brain were to suddenly fizz in the another direction?  What if a homosexual ceased being gay?  Would it be a miracle?   Probably just random fizz…    Our guest today on Miracles & Atheists is Wiley Anson.  Wiley has had supernatural experiences with demons and he knows a thing or two about being gay.  His story is a good one, and contrary to much of what you’ll hear from human secularism.    ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A067 - (Pt 2) Reprogramming God’s Code: The Technology that Opens the Door for Satan to Emerge (Call-In Show w/ Jason Deramo)
Is editing a person’s genes not all that big of a deal?  Just stick you with a needle, remove your defects using CRISPR technology, or inject some protein compound into your cells using mRNA technology and move on, right?   You would certainly get that impression by listening to guys like Yuval Noah Harari and Klaus Schwab.  They talk of things like the “4th industrial revolution,” and changing your “identity,” and changing “who you are,” the fact that this isn’t a mainstream topic of conversation says a lot about our media in 2023.   They also talk about going “beyond the God of the Bible.”  Yes, seriously.   What are the spiritual consequences of changing who you are with technology, or even talking like they do about becoming gods?   This is the topic we’ll explore as we get into Part 2 of Nick Snapp’s conversation with Jason Deramo, titled, “Reprogramming God’s Code: The Technology that Opens the Door for Satan to Emerge.”   ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A066 - (Pt 1) Reprogramming God’s Code: Is Human Genetic Engineering a Good Thing? (Call-In Show w/ Jason Deramo)
Do you want your baby with blue or hazel eyes?  Order now, and you’ll save 10% on gene therapy with this special offer!  25 years ago, the idea that babies could be altered genetically for the purpose of correcting mutations or even specifying preferred genetic traits or skills was merely fantasy.  This technology, and the ramifications of such a world were portrayed in detail by the 1997 movie, Gattaca.    Yet, in 2023 fantasy is quickly becoming reality.  Human Genetic Engineering, using CRISPR and other programmable systems to target stretches of genetic code and edit DNA at precise locations is very desirable to many people. Wow. Do you think this is a purely humanistic, materialistic endeavor, or is there spiritual motivation? So what does God think about this technology?  Who’s kingdom will be glorified through CRISPR gene editing systems?   The Miracles & Atheists Podcast is re-releasing a fascinating conversation with Jason Deramo and Nick Snapp on the Miracles & Atheists Community Call-In (The MACC) show in two parts, where they  examine the spiritual side of human genetic engineering and see if we can glean any insight into what’s going on.   ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A065 - (Pt 2) A New Eye! Did God Do It? (w/ Jon Farmer and Jordan Stewart)
Jon Farmer gave a miraculous testimony of how his daughter received a NEW EYE from God.  Jon told his story to our atheist friend, Jordan Stewart, at our live public podcast event in Raleigh, NC!   If you haven’t listened to Part 1 yet, then you missed Jon’s story.  So before you listen to Part 2, make sure you go back and check out the first part of this fascinating conversation!  Part 2 dives deeper into the realm of why God created us and the world and why He did it the way He did it.  We'll attempt to answer questions about Hell, and why Hell even exists, and we'll talk to a young man from Bangladesh about various religions, evil spirits and the supernatural.  If there is a God, do you believe He could create a new eye?  If your child was born without a fully functional eye, an eye of abnormal size and shape, would you pray?  Would you expect your prayers to make a difference?   But what if they did?  What if your child’s eye was recreated? Also joining us will be another awesome guest, atheist/skeptic Jordan Stewart, who we welcome to ask the tough questions. What an exciting time to have important conversations!  We’ll be broadcasting from the Sanctuary Girl retail store at the Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh, NC.   Even MORE…our Director for The Miracles & Atheists Film will be taking footage for our upcoming movie!!! Don’t know about the movie?  Click here to learn more. At the event we’re planning to have free snacks, good people and fascinating dialogs - will you come out and join us?  If you’re not local, we’ll also be streaming to Rumble, Facebook and YouTube.   —----------------------------------------------------------------- Partner with the Miracles & Atheists Movie!  patreon.com/miraclesandatheists —----------------------------------------------------------------- Connect with Miracles & Atheists: M&A Podcast! https://miraclesandatheists.com/podcast  Catalog of Livestreams: https://miraclesandatheists.com/livestream  Rate & Review Us! https://apple.co/3rTV5DN Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/c-1384806 Chat with M&A on Telegram: https://t.me/miraclesandatheists  Censorship-free comms w/ M&A on Truth Social: https://truthsocial.com/@miraclesandatheists  Twitter: @miraclesatheist Instagram: @miraclesandatheists Facebook: facebook.com/miraclesatheists MACC Call-in Show (every other Tuesday @8PM EST): https://miraclesandatheists.com/MACC  Email the show: nick@miraclesandatheists.com Apply to be our Guest: https://bit.ly/ma_intake

M&A063 - Censorship, Free Speech and The Church (w/ Jason Deramo & Special Guest Jeff Kliewer)
What does the Bible say about freedom of speech?  Is there anything spiritual behind online censorship?   If so, what should the Church do about it? What should YOU do about it?   In a time when tolerance is celebrated and Christians who stand on Biblical principles are ridiculed and shadowbanned, it seems like there are very few who stand up and speak truth.     Jeff Kliewer, author of Blood-Red Church: How Redemption Colors our Politics, believes that the redeemed of the Lord do, in fact, have a responsibility to stand for certain non-negotiable ethical positions in the public arena. Christians are free to disagree on disputable matters, but when it comes to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, family, church, capitalism, and the sovereignty of this nation, redemption has colored our politics red.  Jeff is our special guest on The Miracles & Atheists Community Call-in, so bring your questions and call us at 919-301-9045 while we’re online.   ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A062 - What’s Really Going on with Ukraine? (w/ Jason Deramo and Special Guests “Puck” and ObjectivelyDan)
Russia is bad, Ukraine is good.  That’s what they tell us.  People are scared of Russia; we hear of more Russian missile strikes and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy continues to call for more international assistance.  He recently said “the more audacious and cruel Russian terror becomes, the more obvious it is to the world that helping Ukraine to protect the sky is one of the most important humanitarian tasks for Europe.” So is that the deal?  Are we witnessing a classic power play of a tyrannical dictator to seize territory, or… Is there something else going on? Putin’s original goal, as quoted by the mainstream media, was to “demilitarize and de-Nazify Ukraine."  Yet, the media insists that claims of Nazis and genocide in Ukraine are “completely unfounded.”  Ukraine’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba said,"it's crazy, sometimes not even they can explain what they are referring to." So no one really knows why Russia is invading Ukraine, other than Russia is evil?  Something’s not adding up here… Maybe there’s something spiritual going on?  We’re looking for an objective understanding of the situation, and who better to bring on than “ObjectivelyDan,” Dan Earles? Dan has been featured on The Atheist Experience, Talk Heathen and other influential platforms.  Dan will join us with his friend Alex Puck, and we’ll all put our heads together and do our best to unpack the situation and examine the evidence in effort to uncover some real truth about the Russia invasion of Ukraine. ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A061 - Examine Yourself: Atheist Challenges to Christians
Is there anything a Christian could say to an atheist to convince them that Jesus rose from the dead to save them from their sins?  It depends, right?   Or, does it? Nick goes through some of the top problems many atheists have with Christians, why Christians should care, and what you can do to examine yourself… If you proclaim to follow Christ, have you ever examined yourself?  What do you believe about Jesus, and why do you believe it?  Anna Jackson wrote a powerful, sobering article about this self-examination that you’ll find interesting. Nick also touches on why Season 2 of Miracles & Atheists has been off to such a slow start…but you’ll get some exciting news about what’s coming in 2023! ******************************* WE’RE MAKING THE MIRACLES & ATHEISTS MOVIE!  ******************************* Now You Can Partner with Us!

M&A060S - Election Week & Atheists (Season 2 Short)
Midterm elections? They’re just gonna cheat anyway so why bother heading to the polls, right?  Wrong! Some believe we’re in a spiritual war.  As we begin our transition to Season 2 of Miracles & Atheists, we’ll be exposing our community to movements and agendas that you won’t see from the mainstream media. There’s solid evidence out there revealing the anti-God agenda behind some of the things we see, and the policies that come out of this year’s midterm elections are NO EXCEPTION. There’s a time for silence, and today ain’t it.  If you like the direction our Republic is heading, stay home indeed.  If you want to save our Republic, let’s get into what’s going on and why it’s important to cast your vote and overwhelm the polls while you still can. It’s political, it’s spiritual, it’s probably censored…it’s Miracles & Atheists. —----------------------------------------------------------------- Support the Miracles & Atheists Movie at patreon.com/miraclesandatheists —----------------------------------------------------------------- Connect with Miracles & Atheists: M&A Podcast! https://miraclesandatheists.com/podcast  Catalog of Livestreams: https://miraclesandatheists.com/livestream  Rate & Review Us! https://apple.co/3rTV5DN Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/c-1384806 Chat with M&A on Telegram: https://t.me/miraclesandatheists  Censorship-free comms w/ M&A on Truth Social: https://truthsocial.com/@miraclesandatheists  Twitter: @miraclesatheist Instagram: @miraclesandatheists Facebook: facebook.com/miraclesatheists MACC Call-in Show (4th Wednesday of the month @8PM EST): https://miraclesandatheists.com/MACC  Email the show: nick@miraclesandatheists.com Apply to be our Guest: https://bit.ly/ma_intake

M&A059S - Transhumanism: You’ll Own Nothing and Be Happy (Season 2 Short)
Could you imagine owning NOTHING and being happy?  Yeah, me neither.  There’s an interesting video and article that the World Economic Forum (WEF) put out in 2016 called, “8 Predictions for the World in 2030” which served as a compilation of the WEF’s agenda, "prophesied" by their own sorcerers and soothsayers, whom they call their Global Future Councils. Interestingly enough, these predictions would seem to be coming to pass right before our eyes, six years later.   Is this fulfilled prophecy?  Hardly… The predictions of these false prophets are being pushed into fruition by as much demonic force as deemed necessary, by the elite groups who aim to control humanity in all aspects of life. In this Season 2 short, you’ll see the stark contradiction between the agenda of the WEF and God’s agenda.  We’ll go through each prediction and do our best to expose the deception and how it could affect you, personally.  There’s a lot of darkness to unpack, but there’s absolutely good news: God wins! If you’re an atheist, skeptic or agnostic...  Do you believe the narratives that accompany these predictions?  Do you see the manipulation?  Are you questioning these things, or are you limiting your skepticism to the existence of God?   As always, we encourage everyone who partakes in the Miracles and Atheists Community to maintain a consistent worldview, and apply logic and reason to every aspect of society, which includes but is not limited to, religion.  Is it ok to be a gullible skeptic and embrace the mainstream narrative and then call Christians gullible for believing in the Divinity of Jesus Christ? Just food for thought…enjoy this one, I get a little fired up. —----------------------------------------------------------------- Support the M&A Movie at  patreon.com/miraclesandatheists —----------------------------------------------------------------- Other Ways to Connect: Apply to be our Guest: https://bit.ly/ma_intake M&A Podcast! https://miraclesandatheists.com/podcast  Catalog of Livestreams: https://miraclesandatheists.com/livestream  Rate & Review Us! https://apple.co/3rTV5DN Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/c-1384806 Facebook: facebook.com/miraclesatheists Instagram: @miraclesandatheists Twitter: @miraclesatheist YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/miraclesatheists  MACC Call-in Show: https://miraclesandatheists.com/MACC  Email the show: nick@miraclesandatheists.com

M&A058S - Transhumanism: Maintain Humanity Under 500,000,000 (Season 2 Short)
Ever heard of the Georgia Guidestones? In Elbert County, GA six granite slabs weighing nearly ¼-million tons were erected in 1980. Oddly enough, not many Americans know about this monument, I call it an alter, but many who do refer to the stones as “American Stonehenge.”  The monument's creators believed that there was going to be an upcoming social, nuclear, or economic calamity and they wanted the monument to serve as a guide for humanity in the world which would exist after it.   Sounds like a noble endeavor, right?   How about we read the message first?  Spoiler alert: the guidestones were destroyed by what mainstream media says were explosives, but I’m not so sure…why would anyone want to destroy stones displaying such a heartwarming, uplifting and encouraging message in eight languages?  Well here it is: Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity. Unite humanity with a living new language. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court. Avoid petty laws and useless officials. Balance personal rights with social duties. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite. Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature. Maybe it’s just me…I’m sure it is…but just in case, does anyone else see similarities between these ANTI-ten commandments and what we’re seeing put forth on the earth right now? Atheists, you’re the experts in skepticism, right?  Are you even the slightest bit skeptical the “powers that be” have your best interest at hand, or are you just limiting your skepticism to the existence of my God?  Love to hear from you all…we’re in this life together, might as well talk about important stuff...

M&A057S - Transhumanism: Artificial Wombs, a Monopoly on Reproduction? (Season 2 Short)
Are artificial wombs a good thing?  There seem to be multiple drivers for pushing forward in this field of science: preventing neonatal mortality, saving mothers who die during birth, giving transgenders and same-sex couples non-surrogate options for having children…I can wrap my head around these types of motivations but my gut is telling me there’s something else going on here.  What would you find if you peel back the LGBTQ layers and get to the heart of the matter? Who will have access to this technology?  Are there countries out there who have reproductive restrictions, even for married couples? Who’s funding these experiments? This is another M&A Short, a preview of things to come when we launch Season 2 as the M&A team enjoys some much needed time off this summer, so stay tuned… If you're an atheist, we're interested in having you as a guest to discuss interesting topics like transhumanism and artificial wombs, so connect with Miracles & Atheists!  Here's how: —-------------------------------------------------------------- Support the M&A Movie at  patreon.com/miraclesandatheists —-------------------------------------------------------------- Apply to be our Guest on M&A The Miracles & Atheists Livestream The MACC Call-in Show M&A on Rumble Connect with M&A on Facebook Follow M&A on Instagram Watch M&A on YouTube Follow M&A on Twitter Rate & Review M&A on iTunes Listen on your favorite podcast platform Email the show: nick@miraclesandatheists.com

M&A056S - Transhumanism: Creating Immortality in a Laboratory (Season 2 Short)
What would you say if I told you there are scientists out there who are working to create immortality in a laboratory?  Would you believe me if I said there are people who believe they can literally cheat death, reverse aging and live FOREVER on this earth, but in order to do this, they would need to become another species, one that is no longer human, but transhuman. To use their terminology, not humans, but no longer sapiens.  Why sapiens? We’ll get into that later. It’s really not difficult to find evidence to support these outrageous claims. It’s actually quite abundant if you know where to look, and you can start with the lead advisor of the World Economic Forum, arguably the most powerful organization on planet earth: Yuval Noah Harari.  What’s interesting is the person who is driving and promoting these efforts is a homosexual atheist.  You may be asking how is THAT relevant?  I asked myself the same question…but I sensed a connection with transhumanism, homosexuality, atheism, and started digging…and OH, did I find some stuff!

M&A055 - Season One Finale! Getting More Controversial and Exposing Darkness
It only took 2 YEARS but Season One of The Miracles & Atheists Podcast is riding off into the sunset! It’s time to take it up a notch, it’s time to get MORE uncomfortable.  We’re going to be talking about things that will get a guy kicked off YouTube or Facebook, things that will cause the “fact-checkers” to spread more lies…and it all comes down to an ANTI-GOD NARRATIVE.   We talk about where we’re taking Miracles & Atheists and break some surprising news to our community.  Season Two will dive into not only uncomfortable conversations about faith and religion, but we’re gonna tackle uncomfortable conversations about political narratives and the agendas of powerful people.  We’ll present evidence the mainstream media has suppressed, and expose evil you probably never knew existed.   Will our atheist friends use the same level of skepticism to evaluate the mainstream narrative as they use for their evaluation of God?   We’ll also reveal our vision for the Miracles & Atheists film, and how you can support it. It’ll be interesting…so let’s go!  —--------------------------------------------- Support the Movie at  patreon.com/miraclesandatheists —--------------------------------------------- Apply to be our Guest on M&A The Miracles & Atheists Livestream The MACC Call-in Show M&A on Rumble Connect with M&A on Facebook Follow M&A on Instagram Watch M&A on YouTube Follow M&A on Twitter Rate & Review M&A on iTunes Listen on your favorite podcast platform Email the show: nick@miraclesandatheists.com

M&A054 - Hellfire Campus Preachers and Skeptic Rebuttals (w/ Angel Garcia)
Angel Garcia was supernaturally taken to Hell.  We give the skeptics a chance to weigh in.  We also poll a college student to get his take on how the hellfire campus preachers are typically received.  Moreover, if a person wants to breach the topic of hell, how should they do it? No one really likes to think about Hell, let alone talk about it.  That’s why we do it here on Miracles & Atheists.  We’re into hosting uncomfortable conversations…not because we get a rise out of it, because they’re important! We hope you enjoy the gripping conclusion to our unforgettable event with Angel Garcia, LIVE and IN PUBLIC, at North Carolina State University!

M&A053 - Ask Me About Hell. I’ve Been There. PUBLIC PODCAST (w/ Angel Garcia)
What do you want to know about Hell? What if you could ask someone who’s actually seen the real deal? Is it really as bad as you’ve heard? Why does it exist? How is hell fair? What kind of people end up there and why?  Our last public podcasting event was at NC State University, where we met Angel Garcia. Angel didn’t plan to tell us about how Jesus showed him the depths of hell but he felt compelled to share his story. Angel was about to commit suicide. With a gun to his head, Jesus showed him the depths of hell. We had a lot of questions and I’m sure you do too… So we’re heading back to NC State to talk about his experience in detail and get more of your (and our) questions answered.

M&A052 - We were ROCKED by this Supernatural Story (LIVE from NC State University)
As we were coming to the end of our public podcasting time at NC State campus, an unexpected guest showed up to the broadcast. His name is Angel Garcia… He ROCKED us with an incredible story about a supernatural vision he had over 30 years ago, where he was sent to the depths of Hell. How do you respond to something like this? What do you do with the rest of your day? Angel’s story was powerful and sobering, so powerful that we invited him back on the podcast for another live on-campus event to tell us more about his experience. Also stopping by our podcast was Anson Howard.  Anson had a special message for our atheist friends you’ll find interesting. Overall, it was an on campus tailgate event to remember: the M&A team fed some kids, told some stories (even told some jokes), responded to comments online, prayed for souls and UNPACKED the TENSION between different worldviews of the supernatural…cause that’s how we do!

M&A051 - Spiritual Convos on Campus LIVE! Tailgate Q&A at NC State University
What do college students think about faith and religion these days? Do they find value and peace in belief (or unbelief)?  Have they been successfully indoctrinated with an anti-God agenda? The M&A Street Team hits the campus at North Carolina State University and we weren’t really sure what to expect but had a lot of have fun rolling up on campus, tailgating with hot dogs and chips, hanging out with students, streaming LIVE and unpacking the tension between different worldviews of the supernatural! It’s another first of its kind that we’re excited to share this experience with our Miracles & Atheists Community (the MAC)!

M&A050 - The Story of Jesus is NOT Unique (says an atheist called Ron) PUBLIC PODCAST EVENT
Films such as Zeitgeist and Religulous make incredible claims that Jesus is just another version of Mithra, Egyptian god Horus and others from pagan mythology.  This is exactly what our atheist friend Ron, challenged the M&A Team with at the Raleigh Market during our public podcasting event w/ David and Lydia Warpoole.  Ron is passionate about social justice and is rightfully disgusted with the state of the world.  He says if there is a God, why isn’t He stepping in to do something about all this evil? (Paraphrasing)... We had a fun, important conversation with Ron and others during our Question & Answer session after our interview with David and Lydia.  We did our best to unpack Ron’s tough questions and retorted with some interesting challenges of our own.   We know you’ll enjoy our exciting conclusion to our public podcasting event at The Raleigh Market!

M&A048 - Fighting Sorcerers and Creating Illusions (w/ Patrick Wandera & Greg Craddock)
When a man who fights sorcerers and magicians in Africa connects with a non-sorcerer magician and illusionist, you get a unique, colorful Miracles & Atheists experience…and that’s what we’re bringing you today! While our atheist guest demanded proof, our Christian guest pushed back with experience.  It all ended with a unique challenge… Back by popular demand is Evangelist Patrick Wandera of Uganda, Africa.  Patrick has a strong calling on his life to battle witch doctors, magicians and sorcerers to set them free.  He serves as a full-time minister of The Gospel with Deliverance Church Makerere Hill in Kampala, Uganda. Patrick serves The LORD through open air and conference speaking and he has ministered all over the East African region and beyond in the power of the Holy Spirit, with signs and wonders following.  Patrick has authored many powerful deliverance books such as Seven Years in Hell, a Few Minutes in Heaven and Soul Merchants. Who better to put on with Pastor Patrick than a magician??!! Well, not the kind of magician Patrick Wandera is used to dealing with (he’s not a sorcerer), but a professional magician and illusionist who performs tricks from the UK, Greg Craddock.  Greg is an atheist, food and film connoisseur.  He says he’s yet to see any supernatural event that he cannot explain or replicate.   Greg contends that the supernatural has yet to be shown as a thing or to exist and he wanted to be on Miracles & Atheists to, in his words, “expose the ridiculous.” What “proof” would you need from God if He really exists?  Could you respond to this question with a serious answer? It’s a unique and colorful episode we know you’ll remember.

M&A047 - Is There Freedom in Atheism? (w/ Marlon Katsigazi & Dylan Savant)
Is there freedom in atheism? Where does a sense of right and wrong come from?   These are some of the interesting questions we address as we get back into our PUBLIC PODCASTING event with Christian evangelist and deliverance minister, Marlon Katsigazi and budding atheist apologist, Dylan Savant.  In Part 2, you’ll get to hear Dylan’s take on people who condemn others who don’t share their personal worldview, and whether Dylan feels more freedom now that he’s renounced his Christian upbringing.  We’ll also get into the “love of God” and the archetype of a demon.  Pay attention to the idea of evidence as related to personal experience, and what type of evidence qualifies in the atheist worldview. Furthermore, Part 2 of our public podcasting events is always a lot of fun because we get to talk to bystanders from The Raleigh Market who have good questions and opinions. We truly hope you enjoy this episode, we’d love your feedback and look forward to your comments!

M&A046 - Atheism, Demons & Deliverance (w/ Marlon Katsigazi & Dylan Savant)
Have you ever heard of demons being casted out of somebody?  Our guest Marlon Katsigazi has!  In fact, he claims to do it often.  So what better way to understand what’s going on than to allow our atheist guest, Dylan Savant, ask him tough questions about demons and deliverance?   Miracles & Atheists is back to podcasting IN PUBLIC at The Raleigh Market, North Carolina's Largest Flea Market and we love to be challenged.  You’ll have the pleasure to join Nick and Marcus with our special guests, Christian Marlon Katsigazi and atheist Dylan Savant as we unpack questions such as: Are demonic influences supernatural or mental? What is the source of evil? Is there a demonic agenda being played out in society today? What evidence would qualify something as a supernatural experience? It was a fun, frigid January afternoon where we had a great big tent (with side shields, of course), heat lamps, and fascinating conversation.

M&A045 - Are Lack of Spiritual Experiences Due to Individual Failures? (w/ Vi La Bianca)
Our atheist guest, Vi La Bianca asked, “how do you know what God’s heart is if what we are all experiencing collectively, probably isn’t it.” What a good question! Vi agrees that we (as a society) are not looking at Christianity in the way that it was originally intended to be looked at…as we continue to review Letter to a Christian Nation, by Sam Harris, it becomes more glaringly obvious that Sam Harris is raising concerns about theology that isn’t on point with how Jesus intended his Church to operate in the world.  In Part 2 of our conversation with atheist guest, Vi La Bianca, we dive deep into concerns about the overall message and consequences of American Christianity. Vi is a popular atheist YouTuber known for the Skeptic Generation Call-in Show w/ Eric D. Murphy and How To Skeptic. Vi has two years of experience in atheist and gender activism.  If you haven’t heard the genesis of how we got involved with doing a book review of Letter to a Christian Nation by Sam Harris, you’ll want to first listen to Part 1 of our conversation with Vi at MiraclesandAtheists.com/044.

M&A044 - A Look at Sam Harris…with an Atheist (w/ Vi La Bianca)
Two Christians review an antagonistic atheist’s book with an intellectually honest atheist…Our guest is YouTuber Vi La Bianca, known for the Secular Sexuality and the Skeptic Generation Call-in Show w/ Eric D. Murphy.  Vi is the founder of How To Skeptic, and has two years of experience in atheist and gender activism.  We sincerely appreciate that Vi took the time to be with us and have a discussion about Sam Harris’ book, Letter to a Christian Nation.  This all got started when Nick met an atheist in a sporting goods store in Raleigh. They were in the shoe section and got to talking about Lebron James.  One thing led to another, he mentioned he was an atheist and Nick invited his new atheist friend to be a guest on Miracles & Atheists.  He hesitated a bit but eventually said something along the lines of, “I tell you what, I want to send you a book. I’ve never had a Christian be able to answer or talk about the questions posed in this book. If you can respond to the things in the book I’ll be on your podcast.”  So he suggested Nick read Letter to a Christian Nation…and here we are. Well, we haven’t been able to sync up and talk with our atheist friend from the store yet, but we were able to have a solid conversation about the book with Vi, and we’re grateful for the opportunity. SPOILER ALERT!!!  Vi isn’t a big fan…find out why in this presentation of The Miracles & Atheists Podcast.

M&A043 - Ex-Vampire with Atheist, Pt 2 of 2 (w/ Eric D. Murphy and Dr. Bill Schnoebelen)
A real-life vampire who lived off human blood for one year…WOW! Today we’ll get to the second half of our provocative conversation with Ex-Vampire, Ex-Satanist, Ex-Wicca, Dr. Bill Schnoebelen, and popular atheist YouTuber, Eric D. Murphy.  What a conversation this has proven to be…people have taken a serious interest.  It was an intense dialog and frankly, we're not entirely sure what to do with a lot of the things we discussed.  We covered some serious ground not related to modern-day vampirism, but also real-life werewolves and the idea of a flat earth!   Before you put your headphones on, if you haven’t heard it already make sure you go back and check out episode 042 for the first half of the conversation at https://miraclesandatheists.com/042 and let us know what you think by leaving us an honest rating and review on Apple Podcasts.    Apply to be our Guest on M&A The Miracles & Atheists Livestream Connect with M&A on Facebook Follow M&A on Instagram Watch M&A on YouTube Follow M&A on Twitter Rate & Review M&A on Apple Podcasts Listen on your favorite podcast platform

M&A042 - Ex-Satanist with Atheist, Pt 1 of 2 (w/ Eric D. Murphy and Dr. Bill Schnoebelen)
A skeptic’s ears could perk up when they hear that an ex-satanist has never talked to an atheist. The last time Dr. Bill Schnoebelen was on Miracles & Atheists we talked about Halloween, and Dr. Bill made the statement that he’s never really talked to an atheist before. We thought it was an interesting statement considering the vast number of groups he’s been involved with through the years, so it was a good idea to invite him back on the podcast and connect him with an atheist. So here we are, with atheist Eric D. Murphy.   Dr. Bill is a prayer warrior, counselor, Scriptural scholar and author.  He founded With One Accord Ministries in 1992 and has traveled the world teaching, preaching and sharing the Gospel. Before his salvation through Jesus Christ, Bill spent sixteen years as a teacher and high priest of witchcraft, spiritism and ceremonial magick. A former Satanist & Druidic high priest, the Almighty has used Dr. Bill's past to teach Spiritual Warfare and Minister to the Lost.  He is an authority on alternative religions, cults and the occult.     Representing the atheist position is Eric D. Murphy, founder of The Atheist Podcast and Skeptic Generation.  Eric has spent six years as a community builder, speaker, and activist in the atheist community, and he has also been a repeat guest on Miracles & Atheists. Most recently, Eric started Skeptic Generation, a brand new call-in show which he co-hosts his fiance Vi La Bianca (who incidentally will join Marcus and I tomorrow to talk about Sam Harris’ book, Letter to a Christian Nation). The Skeptic Generation mission is to make fun, thought-provoking, and high-quality content for an ever-expanding community of diverse and compassionate atheists.
