Atheism Isn’t Skepticism

A recent IO9 article indicated that more people in Britain believe in ghosts and aliens than in God. IO9 also highlighted a science experiment that might offer an explanation of why people see/feel ghosts (which Smithsonian also reported on), talked about spirituality and pseudoscience in science fiction, and shared an infographic of misconceptions which are widespread, [Read More...]

Spirituality and Skepticism

I saw the cartoon below on Facebook. Take a look at it, and then I’ll share some thoughts on it. It strikes me as ironic that the supposed skeptic is having a conversation with a fairy.

Life on Other Cells?

I saw this on Facebook: It reminded me of an analogy I’ve often used, of two cells in a human body talking about their place in the grand scheme of things, and the meaning of their existence. One says that it looks around and says “Cells are all there is – we’re born, we die, [Read More...]
