It’s almost time for another episode of Atheists Talk on Air America! Tune in at 9am Central to hear the notorious Greg Laden; he’s going to be talking about academic freedom bills…ferociously and profusely. Lois Schadewald will also be on to talk about studies of pseudoscience. Mike Haubrich has more details.
You can listen to AM 950 KTNF; it will ask for a Minnesota zip code to listen direct. If you can’t catch it then, subscribe via iTunes or RSS.

Have you heard about this?
“Giant squid has world’s largest eyes ”
“By RAY LILLEY, Associated Press Writer
WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Marine scientists studying the carcass of a rare colossal squid said Wednesday they had measured its eye at about 11 inches across — bigger than a dinner plate — making it the largest animal eye on Earth.
One of the squid’s two eyes, with a lens as big as an orange, was found intact as the scientists examined the creature while it was slowly defrosted at New Zealand’s national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa. It has been preserved there since being caught in the Ross Sea off Antarctica’s northern coast last year.”

Sorry to miss it, but I will be in church ;) But I do enjoy reading your blog.

Your fancy iTunes and RSS links are mangled.

I’d fucking drive spikes into my ears before I listened to that parasitic ass-wipe. Just because one might be able to loosely define him “my side” doesn’t mean he’s not a link-farming, parasitic douche-bag with a fourth-rate blog.
Jeffery Keown says
Don’t hold back, Moses, tell us how you really feel.
Atheists on the radio! I will certainly try to catch it.
Steve Ulven says
As always, I don’t know what I’d do without these reminders.
I thought Moses was slightly too charitable.
Steve Ulven says
P.A.T, PZ has actually blogged about this last week. And it’s not a Giant Squid, it’s a Colossal Squid (slightly different Colossal are bigger than Giant Squid). You should check out what he’s had to say, he even has links to the autopsy videos and pictures. It’s very cool, I was able to watch a little bit of it. Also, I think The Discovery Channel (or one of those type of channels) will be having a special on this later this year so you will get to see footage there, too.
Reynold Hall says
Well, I’ve found a topic that they could talk about:
Saudi King wants Jews, Xians, and Muslims to gang up on athiests.
Good thing those religions don’t like each other that much, otherwise we’d be screwed. I won’t worry about it, but it does show that even the terrorists and the self-righteous who hate them have the potential to hate us even above each other.
My problem with the Minnesota Atheists is that their internal ads are so painful to listen to that it makes it difficult to listen to the entire podcast.

I wonder what the difference in hit points there’d be between a Colossal and a Giant Squid?
[gets smacked upside head by a dozen squid] Ow! I’ll behave.
No, the one about the intelligently designed salad bar is hilarious…
Greg Laden says
And the salad bar is actually quite tasty.
To those listeners outside of Minnesota if it helps use 55418 it’s a very nice zipcode
