Blasphemy Bill proposed in Ireland

Posted on April 29, 2009 at 4:09pm 0 Comments

from my site,

Alright, you guys in Ireland need to get your shit together. When reading this article on a proposed “Defamation Bill“, I had failed to realize that it was already a crime to defame religion in your Republic. The problem is, of course, that the very concept of “freedom of speech” conflicts with any special provisions meant to protect religion. Apparently, having +90% of your population actual believers… Continue

Does the “Religious Right” exist?

Posted on January 7, 2009 at 2:22pm 1 Comment


There’s an interesting article here that argues that there is, in fact, no religious right. The arguments are convincing; it does sound at first glance that there has been an over simplification on whether or not a discernable movement is actually present.

I mentioned before that many individuals believe in religion because of what they perceive to be logical reasons, and it is often based on the illusion of design, both here on earth, and in the cosmos in general. The Universe, as far as we can observe, seems to be both extremely complex and mysterious at first glance. Here on earth, the complexity of life is staggering; in a handful of dirt, there are million of… Continue

The Religious Corporation: Part 2

Posted on November 18, 2008 at 10:55am 1 Comment


Yesterday, I argued that the selective advantage of belief was too attractive for individuals in a community not to partake. But this advantage, as humans became more prosperous in the West, became increasingly marginal. In the 15th century, Europe began to experience new found prosperity from the most unusual source: the aftermath of the Black Death.

Over a third of the population is estimated to have… Continue

I've been listening to your podcast for a few months now and I've gotta say that I really enjoy it. I like everyone who is a part of it. Every recurring guest speaker has their own unique effect on the show, which keeps things fresh from week to week. Keep up the great work.

Hey there Jacob! I was listening to your most recent podcasts and was thinking that your voice sounds kinda familiar. Then it hit sound just like Alan Alda from MASH fame! I was watching him recently on PBS and yep, that's who you sound like. You can take that as a compliment...cuz I freakin LOVE Alan Alda!....ok, ok he's kinda old now, but he still rocks! :)
