Protecting False Ideas Ends With Me

I will never allow ideas to be pushed without challenging them especially if they hold falsehood touted as facts. No, I do not have a bit of tolerance for bad arguments. I do not respect ideas I respect people. Ideas have no rights to exist.

The main subjects I go after are pseudoscience, pseudohistory and pseudomorality if they are not warranted by valid and reliable reason and evidence they likely can expect heavy opposition from me.

If I only provide ideas that hold valid…

Self-Management & Recovery Training: A SMART Humanistic Approach to Addiction Recovery

The May-June issue of The Humanist includes a few pieces on a secular alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous, which has recently been exposed as an inefficient system of recovery that's only supported with public funds because it's filled with religious propaganda.
