In this installment of the Legion of Reason we have a very special guest ahead of his appearance in Calgary on the 30th (tickets available through Eventbrite (http://cfiyychrab NULL.eventbrite NULL.ca/#)) – the incomparable George Hrab, host of the Geologic Podcast (http://www NULL.geologicpodcast NULL.com/)! In a wonderfully relaxed conversation Kris and I scare the bejeezus out of George with talk of the spring weather than can afflict the city of Calgary, the tragic marathon bombing in Boston, his introduction to one of his life’s passions, my hat envy, teaching music to children, food and MCing The Amaz!ng Meeting. And I reveal a deep, dark secret about myself when we get to the subject of television and pop culture.
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!"
