Coffee Shop Atheist | A blog about atheism, best served with friends over coffee If someone, say a man named Bill, received a picture of his wife having sex with three other men, in all likelyhood he would be visibly shaken. One of the strongest covenents we make as humans are the pledges of monogamy to one’s spouse, and when these bonds are shaken it drives many to murder, drug addiction, suicide, or other incredibly destructive, suffering-perpetuating behaviors and actions. But what if the picture was simply the production of a clever Photoshop worker? We know that almost every picture coming to us is manipulated or altered in some way, whether to increase breast size, give men a bigger six pack, or smooth away scars or hair.

Spirituality and “skeptuality” « Measure of Doubt February 29, 2012 by Julia Galef Is “rational” spirituality a contradiction in terms? In the latest episode of the Rationally Speaking podcast, Massimo and I try to pin down what people mean when they call themselves “spiritual,” what inspires spiritual experiences and attitudes, and whether spirituality can be compatible with a naturalist view of the world. Are there benefits that skeptics and other secular people could possibly get from incorporating some variants on traditional spiritual practices — like prayer, ritual, song, communal worship, and so on — into their own lives? We xamine a variety of attempts to do so, and ask: how well have such attempts worked, and do they come with any potential pitfalls for our rationality? http://www.rationallyspeakingpodcast.org/show/rs55-spirituality.html

Nauka kargo kulta | Viva Fizika Tokom srednjeg veka postojale su svakakve vrste ludih ideja, jedna od njih je ta da parče nosorogovog roga može povećati potenciju. Onda je otkriven metod za razdvajanje ideja – pokušati nešto i videti da li radi, a ako ne radi, onda to eliminisati. Metod je postao organizovan, naravno, u nauci.
