The Dialogue

A Catholic (Tim Haines), an Atheist (Cal Kane), a Dialogue.  The Dialogue shows how a Catholic and a classical Atheist can have a civilized conversation, even in areas where they disagree—and boy do they disagree!  The Dialogue features discussions on secular news topics, science, and social issues, as well as conversations about issues where Tim and Cal take opposing sides, soft debate, and sometimes not-so-soft debate.

Human Life and Dignity — The Dialogue Ep. 14

Human dignity. It's something Catholics and Atheists can agree on…at least on some level. And on some level, we disagree. Extremely violent videos, violent groups (ISIS), and a society lost in a moral vacuum all play roles in the violation of the dignity of human beings. And isn't abortion also a violation of that dignity? When does life really begin? Tim and Cal toss these points around, following Tim's recount of a recent hours-long "debate" he had with two friends over the past weekend.
