Professor Stephen rants about Facebook memes posted by bigoted christians. Andrew Jennings joins the group to listen to Rachel tell the tail of an infuriating encounter with a creationist and his use of the ill-defined word “kinds”. The Jason and the Prof have a long Chat with Joey about his new book “PR Pope” and all things Catholic.
Professor Stephen opens with a fulmination that leads to Aron and our hosts talking about the whitewashing of American history by religious conservatives, and their general anti-education nonsense.
Pastor Duncan Waters sends in a sermon about how America is a christian nation, and his grandson causes it to be much more entertaining than he intended it to be.
In the second of three Snake-Oil Woo Woo segments about creationist’s supposed debunking of radiometric dating, Rachel and Stephen double team the topic, laying down the basics, so that we can get the meat of the subject. And yes…this includes the ONE dating method that everyone knows and thinks is the only one that exists and is used to date everything….carbon dating. Spoiler: Its not!
