Religion and Shame (with Dr Darrel Ray)

Does religion cheat people out of contentment and comfort with their views, their self-worth, their sexuality, etc?

Dr. Darrel Ray is author of the book, "The God Virus: How Religion Affects Our Lives and Culture," and "Sex & God: How Religion Distorts Sexuality."

In his writings and presentations, Darrel Ray reveals the subtle (and not so subtle) ways that religion uses shame as a weapon against those who might dare to fall outside its narrow boundaries.

Join us for a fascinating look at Religion & Shame.

Legends, Fictions, and the Manuscripts that Illustrate Christ's Story

Illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages are significant for the literary texts they preserve. But they are also important, historically and culturally, for their illustrations of the life of Christ. These artistic representations tell tales of their own, and the visual stories are not always found in the corresponding texts. A careful examination of these images shows clearly and convincingly that medieval artists were not only familiar with the stories of the canonical Gospels, but also with many noncanonical apocryphal tales of Jesus.

The apocryphal stories, in some instances, were understood to be "Gospel truth" on par with accounts found in Scripture. Bart D. Ehrman, the James A. Gray Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, explores both canonical and apocryphal narratives of Jesus's life.

God hates the sanctity of life

Idaho representative Christy Perry opposes abortion because life is sacred and the fetus can feel pain. But she supports faith healing parents who kill their children because, even though the child's life is sacred and these children die in pain, what ACTUALLY matters is that they go to Heaven. Which face should I look at? Because she has two.

Researching Atheism in America: Benefits and Disadvantages

The social sciences of religion have recently gained interest in topics of atheism related to demographics and psychological correlates. What does it mean to study the absence of faith? Is the absence of faith an ontological position much like a personal affirmation of faith? How do the sociological and psychological perspectives intersect within the study of atheism? This presentation would explore the difficulties that researchers face in researching atheism and other types of nonbelief.

Christopher F. Silver is a native of Tennessee. He has received his masters of research psychology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a masters in Religion and Culture from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo Ontario Canada, and a doctorate of Education from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Dr Silver is currently enrolled as a doctoral student at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in research psychology seeking a second doctoral degree. Dr Silver has co-authored a book called Deconversion, Qualitative and Quantitative Results from Cross-Cultural Research in Germany and the United States of America published by Vandenhoeck & Rupprecht. In this work Silver and co-authors explored the process of religious exit and conversion to see if common attributes exist for those who disaffiliate either by choice or through forced exit. His most recent work has explored the different types of people who lack a belief in God or the divine.

Evolution is Not an Obvious or Intuitive Concept

Kirk Johnson: It was an amazing discovery that we're all related, but it was not obvious. It's not obvious that I'm related to a strawberry.

One of the things that museums have been on the vanguard for for the last hundred years is the discussion, the public discussion of evolution and specifically the evolution of humans. And for literally since Darwin's time that was one of the great discoveries was that humans actually are descendants from other forms of animals and we are part of the tree of life. We're not separate from the tree of life. We are part of the tree of life. And we've watched the twentieth century this continuous addition of information to that narrative. And now we have with the genome, the Human Genome Project we have the ultimate tool for mapping our position in the rest of the tree of life. So it's sort of like in many ways the final nail in the building of understanding how we fit with the rest of the things that live on this planet.

I think it's really important that people do understand that evolution is what makes biology makes sense. That's what makes all life make sense. So from the museum point of view it's always been a very important thing to show the actual evidence for evolution. So if you want to have a rational conversation about evolution and creationism -- and I have had many rational conversations with creationists who often feel that they haven't seen the evidence for evolution. And museums again are the most accessible portal for understanding science that we have. And museums by presenting dinosaur skeletons and exhibits about human evolution frame the evidence that we have, the three-dimensional evidence that we have for evolution. And I found that to be the most powerful way is to walk through an exhibit and say here are the elements of evolution manifest. Because frankly evolution is not an obvious or intuitive concept. It was an amazing discovery that we're all related but it was not obvious. It's not obvious that I'm related to a strawberry. But that's the story of evolution.

Does Satan Belong With The Ten Commandments?

"A satanic group unveiled designs Monday for a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan it wants to put at the Oklahoma state Capitol, where a Ten Commandments monument was placed in 2012.

The New York-based Satanic Temple formally submitted its application to a panel that oversees the Capitol grounds, including an artist's rendering that depicts Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that's often used as a symbol of the occult. In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.

"The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond," temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said in a statement. "The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.""*

The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

Matt Harrison, Student of Life, Ex Mormon

I jumped at the opportunity when I heard I could be in one of these videos, but once I thought about it for a while, I became worried. I'm the only one in my family who has left, and I still know a lot of people that are still unaware I've resigned, and I worried that some, or even many, of them would think of and treat me differently.

I was born into and raised in a mormon family, and had been "true blue" all of my life up until I finished high school. I had some back and forths with believing and doubts, and really struggled with self esteem and feeling like I was good enough as a person, so I couldn't bring myself to go on a mission, and it made me feel like a failure, a disappointment, and an outcast. For a while I thought I'd moved on, but I was still mormon on the inside.

Fast forward a few years later, when I was struggling in life, as most everyone does at some point or another, and I had decided to give up. I had no idea what to do with myself, so I just quit. It happened to be that night when the missionaries stopped by unannounced to see if I was ok and if there was anything they could do for me. I hadn't been to church in a while so this was a surprise to me and I wondered if they were prompted to come to me because of my despair.

That started what seemed like a very long, yet at the same time, very short, journey to the end of my belief. I very much like to read and learn and think, and it revived those interests in me full throttle. The layers of belief unraveled, one by one, until I had to start from scratch.

I'd always thought I had a lot of integrity and I was pretty honest, but recognized that I was fooling myself and others in a lot of areas of my life by being disingenuous and inauthentic. Taking a long, hard look at the church's extraordinary claims, eventually, I came to the conclusion that my experience was easily coincidence. I had moved into a new house and it follows that when my records were moved they sent the missionaries to check up on me. It didn't have anything to do with my emotional or spiritual state. Then all of my other deep, very real, intense spiritual experiences that I had had in the past seemed to unravel and unfold and I understood them and could explain them better than before.

I had so many questions, that didn't seem to have adequate answers, or peoples' responses weren't adding up. Things like, "Well, are you reading your scriptures?" or simply "We're to walk in faith in this life, not by knowledge," and all the others, as if my behavior influences what is true and what's not. Whether or not a person is doing those things, doesn't change reality and doesn't change the truth.

Since becoming willing to look every perspective, including information and material from outside the church, and broaden my perspective about a lot of things, I started to see that a lot of reasons not to believe any other religion apply just as equally to any sect of mormonism.

I realized, prayer just simply is not an accurate nor reliable tool or method for revealing truth or influencing the outcome of future events, the same with fasting, or paying tithing, or patriarchal blessings, or fast offerings. My behavior has no impact on what is true and what is false.

Bill Nye and the Creationist Guy

On February 4th, 2014, Bill Nye ("The Science Guy") has agreed to debate Ken Ham, president of Answers In Genesis and The Creation Museum. The debate will take place on Ham's home turf, at The Creation Museum, and the 800 available tickets sold out almost immediately.

This event raises the larger question: Should scientists agree to these types of debates?

Some (like Richard Dawkins) say "no," as it would be akin to an obstetrician debating a proponent of the "stork theory" of reproduction. Others insist that the debate is not only appropriate, but necessary.

Joining us in this discussion are Matt Dillahunty, Dr. Richard Carrier, Greta Christina, David Silverman, Ed Hensley and AronRa.

The Crusades: Holy War (Documentary HD)

The Crusades is a new three-part series for BBC Two, Dr Thomas Asbridge presents his revelatory account of the Crusades, the 200-year war between Christians and Muslims for control of the Holy Land. The story of the Crusades is remembered as a tale of religious fanaticism and unspeakable violence, but now fresh research, eyewitness testimony, and contemporary evidence from both the Christian and Islamic worlds shed new light on how these two great religions waged war in the name of God.

Holy War

Episode one traces the epic journey of the first crusaders, as they marched 3,000 miles from Europe to recapture the city of Jerusalem from Islam, enduring starvation, disease and bloodthirsty battle to reach their sacred goal, and then unleashed an appalling tide of barbaric violence upon their Muslim enemies. Yet far from being the invincible holy warriors of legend, Dr Asbridge reveals that these crusaders actually considered surrender in the midst of their titanic expedition.

Dr Thomas Asbridge retraces the steps of the first crusaders.

"A New Jersey couple is suing their state over a law banning so-called gay conversion therapy, which they say is a violation of their free speech rights, freedom of religion and ability to parent their child "free from unconstitutional government interference," which in this case means putting a 15-year-old high school student through a medically discredited pseudotherapy intended to "cure" him of his sexual and gender identity.

According to the complaint, the couple's teenage son began "experiencing gender identity disorder when he was around nine years old," at which point he started to see a social worker who "helped him tremendously" with his gender identity and "unwanted same-sex attraction."".*

Jesus: the cover-up

No broadcast, no festivities, no coverage whatsoever...
Instead, it happens in the dead of night when nobody's around...?
Why? Isn't this meant to be the turning point of the history of creation?
Sounds like someone's covering something up, or trying to get away with something. But why? What? And guess who screwed it up?


It suddenly occurred to me a few months back: the 40+ years-later accounts we have of the morning of Jesus's resurrection sound exactly like the way things would have played out if Jesus had wanted NOBODY to know about it. Curious. Why would THAT be? But then when you think about the insane theology behind it - it's actually no wonder. I think I know what happened. Here's my theory.

At times in the past few weeks, especially the last two weekends, I've actually sympathized with those who ask me why the hell I would spend so much time and energy on doing something like this. There are lots of reasons, and somewhere amongst them are things like simply the pleasure of creating something as close to as I'd imagined it as possible. Others have to do with simply the fact that this stuff is important to me- this insane religion really can control people's lives, and I find meaning in sharing the good news: it's a bunch of crazy bullshit that you are free to relieve yourself of at any time.
I'm thinking of this as a "concept-piece". It was quite fun and challenging to write and turn into a coherent narrative. It ended up longer than I'd wanted, and I may have bitten off too much to chew through, with all the "But you don't have a basis for objective morality" stuff,... but whatever. I just wanted to bring the idea to fruition. Doing so has reminded me of how much I enjoy it, but also of what an incredibly time-consuming pursuit it can be. Wow, I'm spent. See you again in 2015. No- 16.


Whoops: at 1:31 I invented a new book of the bible called 12 John. Please just subtract 11 from it.

The Antichrist: End of the World

Decoding the Past (2005--present) is a History Channel paranormal television series that "decodes" the past by looking for unusual, and mysterious things written about throughout history that may give clues as to what will happen in the future.

The Antichrist is a Christian concept based on interpretation of passages in the New Testament. In the New Testament, the term "antichrist" occurs five times in 1 John and 2 John, once in plural form and four times in the singular. In traditional Christian belief, Jesus the Messiah appears in his Second Coming to Earth, to face the emergence of the Antichrist figure. Just as Christ is the savior and the ideal model for humanity, his opponent in the End of Days will be a single figure of concentrated evil.

It also illustrates that the notions of God were long challenged before the advent of the scientific method and further demonstrates how the concept of God can be refuted on Logical grounds alone -- a systematic framework often neglected in contemporary Science vs Religion debates.

The DOs and DON'Ts of PRAYER

America's Best Christian, Mrs. Betty Bowers, provides tips to maximize your payoff when pestering invisible people for all the stuff you're either too lazy or cheap to get for yourself! This video is an undated, rewritten, reshot and reedited version of Betty's video on prayer five years ago. Enjoy!

Super Hydrophobic Surface and Magnetic Liquid

Gav and Dan are in the GE lab using nanotechnology to show you cool liquid physics at 2500fps.

The first experiment shows a superhydrophobic surface that GE has been working on. Surfaces like this can be useful in aviation and wind power to reduce ice build-up or for self-cleaning applications. The surface traps a layer of air using its nanoscopic structure, which prevents water from sticking.

The second experiment also demonstrates how the nanoscale differs from the macroscale, this time with iron filings. Iron filings at the macroscale can be easily distinguished from the liquid they are in. When reduced to the nanoscale, magnetic nanoparticles can behave like a liquid magnet. Gav and Dan demonstrate this by showing magnetic liquid flowing upwards against gravity towards a magnet.

I Doubt That - The Media Guide to Skepticism

The common notion about being a "skeptic" is that you hold a generally questioning attitude or have a dubious opinion on a certain topic. At the extreme, terms like "climate skeptic" or "truther" express distrust and denial of scientific conclusions. Scientific skepticism, however, is an approach that emphasizes evaluating claims based on evidence. The process of skepticism is of great value to society to lessen the potential of believing or investing in something that isn't all it appears to be, which may have social, financial or even tragic consequences.

This presentation will provide a look into organized skepticism -- what it is, what it means to be a skeptic, what skepticism isn't, and why it's important for everyone to know how to apply it in a world overloaded with questionable information. Come visit with some friendly neighborhood skeptics who can help you sort through the nonsense and critically evaluate some extraordinary claims. Find out the difference between merely saying "I'm skeptical" and REALLY applying skepticism.

Mark Bunker tells the story of Anonymous vs. Church of Scientology

Long time Church of Scientology investigator, videographer and television journalist Mark Bunker explains how he accidentally triggered the Anonymous war against Scientology. It stemmed from the removal of the Tom Cruise videos which angered free speech advocates and Chanology. Suddenly in February 2008 global protests erupted outside their "Churches". Scientology Inc has been an war with one at all for a very long time. It is a warfare internally and externally. You get glimpses of this in this video.

I explains what it was like to be inside behind cult lines when protests happened.

Does Religion Poison Everything?

Kindness, gentleness, empathy, compassion, love, goodness, morality. These attributes are often called the property of religion, and beautiful acts of kindness between people actually reflect a moral code given to humanity by the Great Eye in the Sky.

Of course, this is nonsense.

We've covered the subject of "Morality" in a previous episode. But the source and nature of morality isn't what tonight's particular show is about.

Tonight is merely a chance to share stories about helping others, with each example providing encouragement and a reminder that even the smallest gestures can transform someone's world.

These gestures didn't come about because we were directed to by a "voice" or ancient holy book (in fact, we're glad our morality isn't derived from the bible, Qur'an, etc). They happened because we sought to provide a human solution to a human problem, and in doing so, we felt the satisfaction and joy of knowing we made a difference.

Belief In Evolution - Republicans vs Democrats

Do-Nothing Congress Even Better At Doing Nothing Than Last Year

Congress did very, very little in 2013 — setting all-time records for both most unproductive and most unpopular Congress ever. Both the House and Senate have passed dozens of bills that the other chamber ignored, leaving only 65 bills to make their way to the White House and be enacted into law. This count is the latest as of Monday, Dec. 23, and includes the most recent eight bills signed into law by President Obama on Friday, Dec. 20.

House Speaker John Boehner had this to say about what's been accomplished: "The House has continued to listen to the American people and to focus on their concerns. Now, whether it's the economy, whether it's jobs, whether it's protecting the American people from 'Obamacare,' we've done our work.""* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down

Message to Scientology from Anonymous

Hello, Scientology. We are Anonymous.

Over the years, we have been watching you. Your campaigns of misinformation; suppression of dissent; your litigious nature, all of these things have caught our eye. With the leakage of your latest propaganda video into mainstream circulation, the extent of your malign influence over those who trust you, who call you leader, has been made clear to us. Anonymous has therefore decided that your organization should be destroyed. For the good of your followers, for the good of mankind--for the laughs--we shall expel you from the Internet and systematically dismantle the Church of Scientology in its present form. We acknowledge you as a serious opponent, and we are prepared for a long, long campaign. You will not prevail forever against the angry masses of the body politic. Your methods, hypocrisy, and the artlessness of your organization have sounded its death knell.

You cannot hide; we are everywhere.

We cannot die; we are forever. We're getting bigger every day--and solely by the force of our ideas, malicious and hostile as they often are. If you want another name for your opponent, then call us Legion, for we are many.

Yet for all that we are not as monstrous as you are; still our methods are a parallel to your own. Doubtless you will use the Anon's actions as an example of the persecution you have so long warned your followers would come; this is acceptable. In fact, it is encouraged. We are your SPs.

Gradually as we merge our pulse with that of your "Church", the suppression of your followers will become increasingly difficult to maintain. Believers will wake, and see that salvation has no price. They will know that the stress, the frustration that they feel is not something that may be blamed upon Anonymous. No--they will see that it stems from a source far closer to each. Yes, we are SPs. But the sum of suppression we could ever muster is eclipsed by that of the RTC.

Knowledge is free.

We are Anonymous.

We are Legion.

We do not forgive.

We do not forget.

Expect us.

The History of Life on Earth in Three Minutes

According to the Anno Domini designation, the year is now 2014. But the Earth has been around a lot longer than that - about 4.567 billion years. The first evidence of life dates back to around 3.8 billion years ago. Homo sapiens first appeared on the planet around two hundred thousand years - or ten thousand generations - ago.

How's that for perspective?

Kirk Johnson, director of the National Museum of Natural History, calls this perspective "deep time." This is the story of our planet preserved in "the DNA of living things," Johnson explains, as well as "in the fossils we find, in the geologic structures of our planet, in the meteorites we scavenge from the ice fields in Antarctica. Those things together give us an incredible manual for thinking about the planet."

Andy Choudary speaks about osama's death

BBC Newsnight examines the reactions of Muslims with different viewpoints to the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Anjem Choudary the former UK head of the Islamist group Al-Muhajiroun and Dr Taj Hargey, Chairman of the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford and Imam of the Oxford Islamic Congregation, spoke to Jeremy Paxman.

As usual, andy choudary starts to waffle about the invasion of muslim lands (whatever they are) and how he demands sharia law in any land now occupied by muslims (Britain, US etc..) but doesn't talk about the forced invasion of muslims into non-muslim lands that has been happening for over 1400 years with extreme brute force including theft, rape, beheadings etc.. The other guy is what Pat Condell would call a 'suit and tie' jihadist.
