Peter Steinberger, The Problem With God, Nov. 26 – Dec. 2

Peter Steinberger is the Robert H. and Blanche Day Ellis Professor of Political Science and Humanities at Reed College in Portland.  His area of expertise is political philosophy.  But he ventured into a book about the concept of God.  It is called The Problem With God:  Why Atheists, True Believers, and Even Agnostics Must All Be Wrong.   We talk about why it is meaningless to talk about God.  There is no such idea.  Curious?
