In this, the 178th episode of LoRD, the Legion of Reason Diversion, we are joined by fellow Canadian podcaster Sean McGuire in another potpourri episode. We visit the story we forgot on the last episode, a victim of chiropractic sues for damages after a series of strokes following 48 sessions… We discuss the French burkini ban and its subsequent lifting… What it means for a Muslim woman to be American… A study showing the prevalence of extremist literature in Canadian mosques, Islamic schools and public libraries… Tips from Catholic priests for making your next confession special… MoFo Teresa is up for sainthood and we examine her life… Social justice crusader PZ Myers on Dogma Debate and why he is just insufferable… And finally we discuss Ellen DeGeneres infamous photoshoping job.
A shameless skeptic with no patience for foolish nonsense and relishes nothing more than busting balloons filled with hot air. And, yes. I'm an atheist, for the same reason that I am a-homeopathic, a-chiropractic, a-reiki, etc. Atheism is a conclusion of modern skepticism applied to religious claims every bit as much as I don't buy into the Bigfoot myth. You want me to accept your claim? Show mete evidence, and it had best be better than the typical "Oh, but the evidence is all around you!" That gets no traction with me. But that doesn't mean my mind can't be changed. I'm no contrarian. I just happen to have more respect for myself than to fall for arguments like "You can't prove it isn't true!"
