Intro to neoBuddhist Epistemology

The Michael Shermer Show # 439We often assume that religious beliefs are no different in kind from ordinary conventional beliefs―that believing in the existence of God is akin to believing that May comes before June.

A critique of The Ideological Subversion of Science

It’s interesting to note that [DJAC] seems to be part of a group of right wing science trolls, the website that Jerry posted his paper on, seems to be a poorly made knockoff of Skeptic magazine that is […]
