Skepticism and Mental Health

In recent weeks, we've been dealing with the human mind and its ability to accept irrational things. This week, we're dealing directly with the complex issue of mental health, specifically things like depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, mood disorders and more.

(LINK: http://youtu.be/UI-YvrHZVvk) Michaelyn Eberhard has a bachelors degree in neuroscience and is a freethought activist. Jeremiah Beene studies Ph.D Clinical Psychology at the University of Mississippi. And Dr. Darrel Ray is a clinical psychologist, author and expert on mental health.

Dale McGowan, In Faith and In Doubt - Friendly Atheist Podcast

Dale McGowan is the author of a number of excellent books about atheism. His books Parenting Beyond Belief and Raising Freethinkers are all about bringing up children without religion. He’s the author of Atheism for Dummies, a book that surprisingly didn’t exist until 2013.

Dale McGowan began Foundation Beyond Belief to encourage atheists to give to charity. He’s the manager of the Atheist Channel on Patheos.com (full disclosure: that’s where I blog). And his latest book, In Faith and In Doubt, is all about relationships between atheists and believers. We spoke with Dale McGowan about how to make mixed-faith marriages work, the biggest surprise he uncovered during his search, and the importance of a hand squeeze between loved ones.

Ferguson police: I will fucking kill you

At roughly 11:55 PM CDT, a Ferguson police officer was spotted randomly pointing an assault rifle at protesters. This event was captured by the citizen journalist Rebelutionary_Z. The officer pointed his rifle at Rebelutionary_Z's companion, identified as Josiah (an African-American), and said "I will fucking kill you, get back." When asked for his name by Rebelutionary_Z, the officer responded "Go fuck yourself."



The full video is here: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/51598475
The clip begins at around the 20 minute mark. The video quality is better on the original; my apologies. I don't really know what I'm doing.
