Episode 47: Name Calling and Science

Episode 47: Name Calling and Science


So last week we revisited the Shroud of Turin and with special mention to Dan Porter who wrote a blog critiquing us for our supposed lack of academic rigour in examining the shroud. Well this past week he wrote another blog, this one more scathing than the last. He resorts to petty name calling while admitting, finally, that he will never come on our show to discuss the matter in our venue. While Bob, Jason and I maintain that we are simply being critical of claims he would rather that we abandon critical faculties in favour of blind faith.

We also discuss the presidential run where no just about all the candidates who claimed that they were called by God to run for president have now been ousted by a man who believes that God lives on a planet called Kolob. We discuss what a Mormon in the White House would mean and the similarities with President Kennedy, a Catholic who had many of the same criticisms of his campaign.
