Plugola: The Skeptical Eyebrow launches

Those of you who enjoyed hearing Gia and Chris on the recent Non-Prophets the three of us did will be pleased to know they have started a little talk show of their own called The Skeptical Eyebrow, which is apparently a Hitchens quote. This isn’t a podcast but a YouTube channel, so go subscribe. They’ve …

Less speculation, more testing…

In keeping with the discussion about whether or not ridicule or insults hinder the process of educating people: (This is presented as a rebuttal to accusations, not as an argument to engage in more ridicule or insult. Yes, it’s one study, but it’s better than the anecdotal opinions we’ve seen bandied about…) Journal of Educational …

Don’t be a dick?

I wasn’t able to attend TAM8, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time at TAM7 and fully intend to attend future Amaz!ng Meetings. With any luck, Beth and I will be at TAM9. Every year, there are a great many people I respect and admire and that, coupled with the opportunity to socialize with other skeptics, …

Atheism and Skepticism

I’ve talked about the Skeptics’ Schism before…and I’m sure I’ll talk about it again. Here’s today’s take on the subject. I’d recommend reading D.J.’s post at the JREF site, and PZ Myers’ post that it links to. Seriously. They’re good posts and provide the needed context and background for this quote from Pamela Gay:   …

Lame YouTube Apologist Caught in a Lie

I know, it’s shocking. YouTube apologists lie. A lot. The one calling himself Shockofgod has been getting a lot of attention lately, because he claims that he called The Atheist Experience and that his question “terrified” the hosts. Here, take a look: What’s immediately obvious to anyone who’s ever watched or listened to an episode …

Can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

Another viewer mail worthy of sharing: I found Atheist Experience on Youtube when browsing on the web. I am writing in reference to the statement in one episode that the journey from theism to atheism can, for some people, be long and painful. It was long for me, about 75 years, but not painful. I …

Non-Prophets 9.6 is up

For your consideration. Gia, Chris and I had a blast doing this. As there was no live chat involved, we’ll just make this an open commentary thread about the show. (Also, here is a much lower bitrate version, as I didn’t take into account just how huge the higher quality version is and I didn’t …
