You have to wonder, "What the hell are they thinking," but you can't put words in their mouths and mothers are sacred. Can you convince them that no one has died from prank tainted Halloween candy? Of course not. Because they are parents. And having children turns you into an insane person who is listened to by other insane people, the politicians, who govern our lives based on whatever batshit crazy… Continue

Happy Mocktober, Everyone. This week, I have the episode "The Edge of Evil," from "Macabre," and a lovely array of recordings of one of my favorite spooky songs, "Ol' Man Mose is Dead." Interpretation of the words in that song is up to The Ear that hears it.
Edge of Evil 1
Betty Hutton * Ol' Man Mose
Lew Dite * Ol' Man Mose

I don't fully know what http://www.fixedearth.com/
is, and I'm not sure I want to spend all of my time figuring it out. In a nutshell, physics is wrong, Copernicus was wrong, Einstein was wrong, they were all Jews and Kaballists, and the Earth is the center of the universe.
And the guy recording these podcasts has a little imaginary friend or puppet… Continue

“Fear believes—courage doubts. Fear falls upon the earth and prays—courage stands erect and thinks. Fear retreats—courage advances. Fear is barbarism—courage is civilization. Fear believes in witchcraft, in devils and in ghosts. Fear is religion, courage is science.”

As discussed in my previous blog, the books my aunt promised to send arrived today. She sent me Josh McDowell's The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict
and Answers to Tough Questions Skeptics Ask About the Christian Faith
. I have just over three weeks off from college for the holidays and I hope to have the books read within that time. I will also be posting my thoughts, questions, and interesting quotes from the books on here for your entertainment.
Thanks to everyone… Continue

This is the story of Betty, Barney, a Dachshund, and their abduction and rape by SPACE MONSTERS FROM OUTER-SPACE. Most of it is told by Master of Mystery and Horror, Carl Sagan. So you know it'll be scary!

From the 365 Days Project on WFMU:
Tony Agpaoa was the man called the "Father of Psychic Surgery", the practice of curing the infirmed without scalpel or drugs, but faith in God. Many of these so-called healers have been shown to use slight of hand tricks to remove cancerous tumors of pig guts and chicken blood. Agpaoa… Continue

(See, because it sounds like it's something to do with golf, but it's actually about someone called Putt trying to win money... Yeah, so I suck at titles.)
Well, it's disappointing, but shouldn't be surprising. It's taken less than three weeks for Patricia Putt, the psychic failure of a recent paranormal challenge
organised by the JREF
, to turn up in… Continue

...just as well as not doing acupuncture

what I call a medical procedure worth investing large sums of money in and foregoing other clinically proven treatments for. You don't even need to actually do it for it to magically heal you! Hey, I wonder if we can make that work with… Continue

Carl Sagan's book, "The Demon Haunted World," is as close to an "atheist bible" as you can get. Well, it is to me, anyway. Here I include the chapter called "On the Distinction Between True and False Visions," which deals with Marian apparitions.
Carl Sagan * True and False Visions 1
Enoch Light * Don't Sleep in the Subway
Inger Nilsson * Keep On… Continue

I being somewhat a skeptic since very young. Although my mother is catholic, she's a 'light' catholic, in the sense that she thinks that there is a god, but he hardly has something to do with the universe we live in; she's something I like to see as a catholic-colored pantheist. My father, in analogy, would be a catholic-colored agnostic, he finds comfort in the idea and is attached to the festivities, but not very religious by himself.
There is a story told by my mother that, I… Continue

Does atheism define you?
Absolutely not. Atheism doesn't reflect something you are, it reflects something you are not. It is of no substance by itself. Not believing in something doesn't define who you are, just like not believing in fairies doesn't define who you are. Most people are "afairiest," in that they don't believe in fairies. Does your afairiesm define you? Of course not. Have you even heard of the term? Probably not, because it is as meaningless as the term atheism. We can… Continue

Just follow the instructions to play along. We have a studio time but we don't know when the air date will be yet. In the meantime have fun and be responsible. And go to the Discovery Institute and claim to be a skeptic and atheist and see what sort of reception you have. Just saying is all.

So, gentle readers, this coming weekend I'm flying up to Seattle to see my fabulous friend Tiana. There shall be drinks. There shall be fun. There shall be ... doing an interview for a Skepticality podcast about our time at the Discovery Institute, what? Yes! Stay tuned for more information, but realize in the meantime that it shall be awesome. I only wish I was flying into Seattle on Friday so we could visit Casey Luskin and pals one last time so Tiana and I could test the theory that all… Continue

I am sure you know or have met somebody who thinks like this. You may, in fact, be one of these people I'm about to describe. If you are, I strongly urge you to consider what I'm about to say.
You're an atheist, but you feel that too many hard-nosed vitriolic cynics have given the label a bad name so now you refuse to refer to yourself as what you truly are. And yet. Yet, you could always make an effort to proudly assert that yes, you are an atheist but that you're willing to discuss… Continue
