Helen Beach, head of the local chapter of the Centre for Inquiry, and our gay correspondent Shane Plesiuk join us to discuss the recent regrettable decision by Calgary Pride to ban members of the Calgary Police Services to participate in uniform. Note: I reached out to Calgary Pride to include a representative of their organization and received no response by on-air time.
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!"
