Today on TAE, Jen discusses the use of skepticism in areas outside of religious claims.
The Atheist Experience is a production of the Atheist Community of Austin, a Texas nonprofit educational organization dedicated to the separation of church and state and promoting positive atheist culture.
Nov 28-30, Facebook donations to nonprofit organizations will be matched. If you’re inclined to donate to ACA during that period, we’d appreciate your consideration. Thanks!

- Studied referenced by Jen regarding worse outcomes may have been, “A Controlled Experiment on the Use of Court Probation for Drunk Arrests“, by Keith S. Ditman, M.D., George C. Crawford, LL.B., Edward W. Forgy, Ph.D., Herbert Moskowitz, Ph.D., and Craig MacAndrew, Ph.D., in the American Journal of Psychiatry. However, there wasn’t much online, and there was some criticisms of it for not confirming the non-AA control group didn’t attend meetings. They weren’t required to, but neither were they, it sounds like, stopped.
