Those receptive to bullshit may show lower cognitive abilities, be prone to conspiracies and religious bullshit and swallow alternative medicine.

People are incredibly receptive to meaningless buzzwords, according to a new study in the journalJudgment and Decision Making. Yes, the vast majority of people are willing to believe complete bullshit, to use the scholarly term. (Title of the study: "On the reception and detection of pseudo-profound bullshit.")

Over the course…

How to charge your phone with a mud oven

One of my favorite themes is that science and technology will make life increasingly unlike the kind of life we genetically evolved in. Civilization becomes an increasing complex experiment involving numerous cultures. This particular video doesn't exactly address what I think is the heart of that theme, but it's novel and interesting, nonetheless.

A point against and a point for humanity and Salt Lake City this week

The Mormon church recently formalized their homophobic hate by making gay hate a part of their policy. Children of gay parents (which the church hates) cannot be Mormons unless they also hate their parents and renounce them. If this isn't a case of inciting hatred...I don't know what is. Fortunately...some Mormons with a sense of humanity left the church in a …

How to help an Atheist find God.

Are you a theist that would like me to convert to your religion? I will happily become a Christian or a Muslim if you can describe your God to me and offer me some objective evidence as to why I should trust what you are telling me to be true.

When I say “evidence” I mean even a tiny scrap of something that is tangible, that exists outside of your mind. I am not asking for, or even expecting any “Proofs”. Just something I could later build upon as my understanding of your (my) God…

Foot prints

My grandmother passed away in her sleep yesterday after over 90 years of blasting through life with passion, generosity and unbounded love. She supported every interest I had (buying my first piano and saying bravo loudly...if...and only if I had finally reached my goal and played it well). That's the kind of encouragement you need. The same goes with my studies, sports, love for travel and my intellectual interests. She was cheap with the little things and price didn't matter for the big…

Mummified lion and other animals

Lions a mere 12,000 years mummied...have been found rather well preserved...and as cute as heck. The first image is one of the cubs. I decided to look at images of other mummified animals and placed them below to share with you. Some were mummified by egyptians and neighbours...others by nature. The second last one is the human animal (a siberian mummified which had tattoos) and the last one was a hoax of a…

First evidence that "group prejudice" and "religious believe" are located in the same chunk of our alpha-neanderthal brain

Not that anyone is surprised but group prejudice (or bias) is linked to sky God thinking and one-with-the-conscious-spirit-of-the-world. I've only read the abstract and will try to read the article...though not sure I'll understand it.…

FOUND; Jesus Missing Foreskin

 Archaeologists working in Turkey believe they have found the missing foreskin of Jesus Christ. While excavating an ancient church known as Beggars Corner, an eighth century building in Sinop, Turkey, they discovered an alabaster-box containing a perfectly preserved bit of flesh, wrapped in goat skin which had been treated with oil of spikenard.…

The Problem with Foreigners.

eurostar I once tried to see everything there is to see in Paris in nine days, with mixed results. A co-worker and I had strayed from our official duties at a trade convention in order to see the sights there. I say “strayed” which may be a tad imprecise. The convention was in…

The Psychology of Prayer

Before I start, let me emphasize this is opinion without source evidence other than general personal experience and you can dismiss it at will, although it would be nice to hear why you choose to do so.

We are faced with people of faith who claim their prayers work and they receive guidance from their deity. Further, it doesn't seem to matter how profound or minuscule the subject matter of the prayer - the claim remains that these prayers work.

Now we can easily refute… Continue

The Bible; A Book Review In the beginning there was nothing except a grumpy old deity with a God complex, which is ironic because in this case He happens to be God. After an eternity of doing nothing, God decides to built a universe populated with billions of galaxies and trillions of stars only to ignore all that so he can focus his attention on what bipedal apes are doing with their genitalia.…

American's are stupid and atheist secular Marxist femimazi transgender boogeymen have been infiltrating every corner of America at all libtard bogeymen do.

When retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, the current GOP 2016 front-runner, campaigns, he routinely pitches "common sense solutions from We the People." But it seems the candidate who…

Understanding consent ... through a cup of tea.

We've touched this topic a few times over the last year. I've always considered consent a pretty big deal...and have noticed too many of my acquaintances (mostly guys) completely misunderstanding what should be a total no-brainer.

It's a quick video that explains why it IS a big deal.

Church says bike lane would violate their right to religious freedom

The District government is going through the rather municipally boring process of determining where to build a bike lane on the east side of downtown.

And one church has given a charged response to some proposals, saying that a bike lane near its property would infringe upon “its constitutionally protected rights of religious freedom and equal protection of the…

France and just how strict should secularism be.

France is going through one of its periodic bouts of "secularitis" - that disease of the national soul whose symptom is loud and prolonged agonising over the encroachments of religion.

This time the issue is school meals - and specifically the question of whether town authorities should be obliged to…
