Tune in to the Atheist Experience for “Skeptical straw men in fiction”. Featuring:
- This lame old joke about a bullying atheist professor who turns out to be completely clueless about science. This is from years ago; my response was posted here.
- Evan Almighty, and other silly movies where God is a character in the story.
- The Reaping, another movie where the skeptic looks ridiculous and fails to do due diligence.
- The definition of a “Skepticism Failure” at tvtropes.org.
Plus a few odds an ends to discuss, if we have time for them.
- I graduated, suckers.
- The Golden Compass is unfortunately not very good.
- The pope says dumb things about atheists.
- We lost the war on Christmas. Curses.
