Episode 226 – Potpourri

Lawrence Krauss is the latest to be accused of sexual misconduct in an article posted in Buzzfeed. David Stephan was an invited speaker to several “wellness” expos, including here in Calgary, to ply his supplements. The public outcry, including the withdrawal of sponsorship from the likes of Sobeys and others, was loud and has since been disinvited. The real question is why Stephan was invited in the first place; a homeopathy diploma program at Ontario’s Georgian College; Several upcoming events including the AB Secular Conference in May and Richard Dawkins/Carolyn Porco in October will be discussed.

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!"
