Can James Van Praagh Talk With Dead People?

James Van Praagh has made himself rich by claiming he talks to the dead on daytime TV and at pricey ticketed seances—but he wouldn't talk at all when 'the dead' actually turned up at his $100-a-head seminar to ask why he won't prove his psychic powers.

The James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) brought a small horde of costumed 'zombies,' carrying signs reading "Van Praaaaaaagh" and "talk to us, we won't bite." The zombies shambled up to the building where Van Praagh's "Spirit Circle" was set to begin, and asked to speak with him. Led by JREF President D.J. Grothe, the groups asks why Van Praagh is dodging questions about whether he'll accept the Foundation's million-dollar challenge to prove his claimed abilities. Apparently, Van Praagh won't even talk to dead people about the JREF's challenge.

Woman, Be Silent!

A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.

A Yom Kippur Thought from Rabbi Buchwald

Rabbi Ephraim Z. Buchwald, Director of Jewish Treats' parent organization, the National Jewish Outreach Program, shares an important and insightful message for us all to think about on Yom Kippur.

How To Spot Bullshit: Question-Sayers

If someone argues by saying a bunch of questions — while ignoring perfectly reasonable answers — they probably subscribe to a bullshit belief system.

Answers to questions in this video:
Q. If evolution is real, where are the transitional fossils?
A. All fossils are transitional fossils. Species tend to change slowly in a stable environment, however, and fast changes — the appearance of new species — tend to occur over short geological timescales, with tiny numbers of individuals involved. Many types of fossils being rare by nature, the fossil record therefore is not nor could it ever be 100% complete. Doubters can always use this fact to claim that critical evidence is missing, but it is a bit like denying that a murder occurred just because no photograph exists of the bullet in mid-flight.

Q. How did the World Trade Center buildings fall straight down like that?
A. Gravity points straight down, by the definition of "down." In the case of a steel skyscraper with no concrete core, like all three collapsed WTC buildings, once the perimeter steel began to buckle, the load of the upper floors immediately transferred to other columns, which failed in quick succession. The upper portion of the building never rotated more than a few degrees as the upper portion descended into the lower. These buildings were over 95% air, with no central concrete core. And there were no sideways forces strong enough to accelerate the upper portion away from this path. So, they came straight down. However, the buildings hardly collapsed into their own footprints. Debris was ejected in all directions, and even 7 World Trade Center's collapse destroyed part of a building across a four-lane street.

Q. Why are there no stars in the background of the Moon landing footage?
A. The TV video cameras brought to the moon were crude and were designed to capture the brightly lit scene on the surface, not faint distant starlight.

Gays and Islamists Are Driven By The Same Anti-Christ Spirit

Christian Bryan Fischer says says and Islamic fundamentalists are driving by the same "dark energy" and hatred for Christianity.

This is Christianity September 2011

I will not disabuse you - if you think there is a parallel between Islamic fundamentalism and the homosexual agenda, if they have the same tyrannical impulse - the same impulse of hatred, the same impulse of vitriol, the same impulse of the spirit of anti-Christ, anti-Christian spirit, a vitriolic hatred of all things that are connection to the name of Christ, I'm not going to disabuse you of that notion. I think it's the same dark energy. Islam wants to completely silence and neutralize Christians everywhere in the world. That's exactly what the homosexual agenda wants to do.

Do not mishear me on this because I am being very intentional on this: the same spirit of intolerance that's at work in Islam is at work in the homosexual agenda. The same spirit of hatred, the same spirit of enmity toward anything connected with Christ, the same enmity, the same vitriol is at work in Islam and in the homosexual agenda.

Genetic Bucket Chain

This is the story of how you and Inuk are almost certainly both direct descendants of Confucius.

Genetic Bucket Chain, Part 1

NOTE: Yes, Julius Caesar was a poor choice, and Cleopatra is not much better. Their heirs may have been part of the 20% that we are NOT related to. Confucius, on the other hand, is much clearer.

Muslim woman to be whipped for driving!

I hope to see healthy discussion on whether you think it is wise to allow women to drive. Should there be a complete and total ban, or should they be allowed to drive in an emergency?

I still think the whipping was a bit too harsh. She could have been fined instead.

If women do not feel comfortable travelling with stranger taxi drivers, is it ok to provide women taxi drivers for serving women customers only?
Some of the disadvantages of lifting the ban on women driving....
1) It will add to the traffic congestion on the streets.
2) This is embolden them and they will demand more rights
3) It is not safe for women to be out on the streets by themselves especially at odd hours of the day.
4) This will give them the opportunity to listen to music while they are driving.
5) Increase road accidents as women are not good at driving and operating machinery
6) Women suffer from PMS for 10 days every month. During this time they become irritable and aggressive and their judgement is impaired, doubling the risk of fatal road accidents
7) Women are not good in navigation. They can easily be disorientated and become lost and fall pray to unscrupulous elements who will take advantage of the situation
8) It will distract them from their duties of looking after the kids, cleaning the house, cooking for the family etc
