Skeptiles: Episode 36 – Screaming Babies

Skeptiles A belated Skeptiles for Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013 with special guest, Shawn’s 3 1/2 year old son, live from a hotel room in Syracuse, NY. We also do our usual ramble: we talk about Shawn’s bender in Montreal, the Midwestern tornadoes, racism, prostitution, global warming and rising water levels, we discuss Australia’s pros and cons even though none of us have been there. We discuss the latest loony pronouncements from quack historian David Barton, and Joe brings us fresh Arrested Developments.

  1. Wow, packed show. Loved the rambling intro…

    Yeah, I don’t get the Irish/American thing either. Weird….

    Definitely, class divisions are more important than race or religion, but let’s face it – the rich know this, which is why they keep those fires stoked! Divide and rule…

    I think Holland will go first. I know they’ve been at it for ages, but seriously – when waters rise what are they gonna do? Live in a semi-submerged bubble? Build a dam around the whole country? Clock is ticking for the cannabis-cup…

    In UK schools we don’t have separation of Church and State, since the CoE is a state religion, but they pretty much ignore it in schools. We had a religious sermon type of thing one morning each month or fortnight or some such, but you were allowed to opt out if you/your parents made the case. Nothing in classes, except RE (Religious Education), which is more about all religions than preaching a specific theology. What we don’t have is any arseholes trying to get teachers to teach Creationism in science classes. Evolution is non-controversial. Right now they’re trying to get climate change off the curriculum before age 14 (I think), but teachers are kicking up a big fuss. I don’t think I have ever been made to pray… Oh, and in primary school we sang more Beatles songs than hymns…
