Yes, that is my son you can hear during my cold open, in which I corrected a mistake I made in last week’s show. What was the mistake? You’ll just have to listen.
Skeptics Get A Little Primetime: Follow Up
A fair amount of skepticism and a little lazy journalism.
I talked about ABC’s Nightline Primetime: Beyond Belief program on psychic ability last week. They did about as well as we skeptic’s could hope for, but I did take exception with the last report of the show filed by (possibly lazy) journalist, David Wright. That report abandoned all skepticism. I wrote a blog on my thoughts on Mr. Wright journalistic fail here.
I had more to talk about, because we found out a little something about that report. You can read my original review of the show here.
Randi’s Amazing Trick
Please, Randi, don’t be upset that I gave away your secret. Just one of them!
I related the story of how James Randi was once put on the spot by Barbara Walters to duplicate a supposed psychic feat done by Uri Geller. Randi pulls it off. He doesn’t tell how he did it, but I told on my show. I hope Randi doesn’t get upset.
Feel The Love
Then a couple stories about how some Christians treat atheists when they speak out. Just as Jesus would want them to – with death threats. Ahhhh, feel the love.
