Episode 224 – Potpourri

Topics include: The Jordan Peterson/Cathy Newman debacle. Toronto’s Ryerson U is quickly earning a name for itself, and not a good one. This time it’s the site of the White Privilege Conference in May. February 1 is World Hijab Day, and MTV’s Decoded (so woke!) has a typically obtuse view on this symbol of religious misogyny. The Atheist Conference is in New York City is DEAD, and social justice killed it. And yet there are those who believe social justice warriors are the true defenders of ‘free speech’. Riiiiiiiiight.

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!"
