I Was on Dutch TV

When I was in Charleston, South Carolina doing my Stand Up Skeptic show a couple months ago, there was a Dutch TV crew that was following around Herb Silverman and they filmed most of my talk. I’m in the video for just a few seconds, doing a joke about the American Family Association selling an artificial burning cross. Here’s the full video.

    The video is really choppy on my internet connection, but Ed’s joke can be seen starting right before the 3:00 mark.

    Re Silverman’s interviewer claiming that an attribute of Christianity is believing in scientific evidence:

    Even the AGW denialists and YECs I’ve had a dialog with in meat-world claim they’re pro-science. That’s a fine illustration of a systemic failure of thinking that yields AGW denialists and creationists.

    I was at a dinner a couple of years ago where someone was talking about how anti-education, critical thinking, and science the Michigan state legislature had become (which is true). A Sarah Palin disciple sitting next to me asked who would vote for such people. I was grateful I didn’t choke on my food.

    I wonder if the term “low country,” referring to a portion of South Carolina, is part of what interested film makers from the Netherlands in this story.

    Very nice. I just sent the link to my daughter, who’s studying law in Charleston SC and has been reading Herb’s autobiographical Candidate Without a Prayer.

    One of these days I’m going to run into an Ed Brayton talk.
