Episode 2 - Ricky chats with David Baddiel and Professor Brian Cox
The second episode of Ricky's new series of radio shows on Sirius XM
Ricky Gervais is Deadly Sirius: Ricky with comedian chums and eminent guests discussing the big issues. Entertaining, thought-provoking, and often taboo-crunching chat about ethics, science and art; interspersed with utter bollocks and the greatest songs of all time.

    Cox says we are 'atoms thinking about atoms', the material rationalistic view, seeming to then omit, ENERGY, that binds those atoms;, strong and weak nuclear forces, gravity and electromagnetism. This is Cox's bread and butter. In a universe of two trillion galaxies, it is highly likely other forces exist, that don't involve atoms. Think of like this, there are atoms in two radio transmitter/receiver, yet none in the radio wave or the vacuum of space the wave travels to on the way to eh the Moon.

    Ricky;God, god, dog, is not a 'thing', the thing that organised religion sells for their power and advantage, god is a destination of experience, like 'fitness' is not a thing in any meaningful way, it's how you feel when you've put in the graft in the gym or in the hills. The path to god by analogy is spiritual fitness, on the hypothesis ( until proven through ONLY personal experience) that the universe is endlessly creative and reactive, the fundamental law would seem to be karma, you reap what you sew, as your actions are your experience will be. So cruelty begets cruelty and love begets love, suffering and grace.

    One of the main problems with atheism is a certain incoherence in what atheism implies. It implies materialism, which in essence means that everything is based on particles and fields. These are controlled by laws. Since our Brian are made of these same particles and fields, then our brains are controlled by these same rules, in other words we have no free will, and Ricky even admits to this, when he said the "illusion of free will". Therefore, how can Ricky and other atheists believe in anything, including his own atheism, since this belief was apparently reached by the random movement of particles in one's brain which is governed by these physical laws. Therefore what is the point even of this podcast, since Ricky and the rest of the panel are not free agents according to atheism, and therefore everything they are saying was predetermined anyway, so what's the point of Ricky trying to convince any one of anything, since they were also predetermined to have their beliefs..... See the incoherence of atheism? If you are an atheist, then you should have the courage of your conviction and be a nihilist like nietzsche, he was at least an intellectually honest atheist, who realized that there is no ultimate meaning if atheism is true, unlike Ricky who is an atheist , but does not seem to take his athieism to its natural and logical conclusion, and I don't blame him, because if you take atheisim to its natural conclusion you would be very depressed .

    I loved this as it really made me think..... especially the crossover between ‘God’ and the universe. Ricky, next time someone is defending the existence of god, simply ask, “so god made everything? Why did he create 2 trillion other galaxies? Was he bored after creating earth? Is there life within any other of these galaxies? Or did he just create 2 trillion other galaxies with billions of stars each to be barren expanses of space?” I’d love to know the responses you’d get 😂😂

    Spirituality and science don't have to be mutually exclusive. Just as an example, I'm both a medical doctor and research neuroscientist but I occasionally believe in SOMETHING, and then sometimes don't. There seems to be a belief in a specific demographic of westernised people that atheism is direct reflection of intelligence, with folk like these boys massaging egos a little in related chats like these and thereby encouraging the belief. Also, I completely respect anyone's right to believe what they want, including nothing, but David in particular seemed to go a step further and spoke about his belief in no other power as gospel (ironically). A belief one way or another re any sort of supreme power is a religious belief.

    I think Ricky and these guys miss a point with all this atheism talk. My experience is that the universe is a living thing and came from one point. We are therefore all connected and all one. The universe is what I know as 'God' - but I do not refer to them as separate things. But the universe created us and we are part of it. The universe is spirit. It is benevolent. There is no need to invent something outside the universe that invented itself.
