Episode 205 – Potpourri with guest co-host Shane Plesiuk

Long-time friend Shane Plesiuk joins us to talk about religion and atheism in Calgary’s gay community and share his thoughts on a number of stories in this episode of the Legion of Reason Diversion, including:

  • the despicable witch hunt of Bret Weinstein at so-called progressive Evergreen State College;
  • faux pas by comedienne Kathy Griffin and comedian Bill Maher;
  • Islamic apologist Linda Sarsour speaks at the commencement ceremony at CUNY;
  • Denmark abolishes its blasphemy law (ahem, Justin Trudeau…);
  • things women put in their vaginas;
  • and we finish with some thoughts on the London terror attacks.

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!"
