An Amazing blurb

James Randi has written an Amazing endorsement of my book!The seemingly unquenchable popularity of the so-called "paranormal" has long been a puzzle, both to me and to my good friend Aron Ra. However, Aron's much more important and more specific interest in preoccupation with woo-woo is bifold: religion & creationism -- to the study of which he has given much thought and concern.

Brilliant satire of racial justice denialism by Youtuber Edward Current

Social Justice Warrior is often meant as a pejorative.

I went to the American Atheist National Convention in Salt Lake City Utah in April of 2014. It's funny because there was a ComiCon going on right across the street.

A Short Response to Steven Novella’s “Bigfoot Skeptics, New Atheists, Politics and Religion”

   Dr. Steven Novella of JREF has posted in response to PZ's post on skeptical consistency in defense of economic policies particularly libertarianism. The gist of Novella's main contention with PZ is...Perhaps I am misunderstanding what PZ is saying here, and if so please correct me, but this sounds an awful lot like a desire to purge the skeptical movement of those with a differing political outlook.
