Chronicle – Flying People In New York

I have a great love for movies about superpowers… so I’ll more than likely see this film. From Yahoo News: What looked to be three people were spotted flying around the skies of lower Manhattan last Friday, causing a lot of double-takes and dropped jaws from onlookers. But while it appeared to be a sight straight out of a comic book, it was actually a clever bit of viral marketing for this week’s upcoming film “Chronicle.” Those aren’t people in… Read more

Token Skeptic Interview With Alain de Botton – On Religion For Atheists

Or, On Herding Cats), which address the claim that Alain de Botton has been proposing an “atheist monument” or “temples for atheists”.

Marvelous Martina Responds To Margaret Court

In response to Margaret Court’s earlier op-ed – Don’t deny us same-sex marriage laws, says Martina Navratilova:  …People (the straight ones) often ask: Why are people gay? I say, well, why are people straight? There is no straight answer here, so to speak. Human sexuality is multi-faceted, complex and quite fluid; genes play a part as well. How much? Who knows? But that’s not really the point anyway. Perhaps of the many things you said in your opposition to granting same-sex… Read more
