On the show today: Bias

I’d like to say a few words on the Atheist Experience today on the subject of bias. I’m for it. I’m going to be talking a bit about how religious people think that science is biased against them. What I want to talk about first is how science is inherently biased towards empirical evidence, and …

A sterling example of the moral bankruptcy of religion

Recently, Richard Dawkins wrote a piece called “Logical Path from Religious Belief to Evil Deeds.” In it, he proposed that the reason religionists can consider themselves morally superior to absolutely everyone who doesn’t share their beliefs is that religious belief “changes, for people, the definition of good.” This is how, for example, the 9/11 terrorists …

Introducing the most pointless “reality show” ever: America’s Psychic Challenge! America’s Psychic Challenge pits amateur psychic from around the country against each other in a series of challenges to see who will be “America’s #1 Psychic”.

The Impact of Explanatory Function on Existence: Show #520

For some time I’ve been considering the idea that Christian apologists argue both sides of any issue and call it proof of god or of their doctrine’s validity. Examples would be “faith” versus “reason,” or “god answers prayers” versus “sometimes god answers prayers ‘no,’” or “the world is perfectly suited to human life” versus “the …
