One response to “Episode #5”

    Hello there.

    This was a good episode, I’m enjoying the new structure.

    “Belief” in evolution:
    I don’t like the term “believe” as applied to evolution. I prefer to phrase it as whether someone accepts evolution or not. Evolution is a scientific theory, and is beyond dispute in biological circles. Only the very fringe theologist scientists do not accept it.

    I too have experienced people in the workplace that refuse to accept evolution, it is very disheartening.

    Brian I dig that saffer accent 🙂

    I’ll mail you guys as soon as I catch up to the current episode.

    I pity Diamond the devil dog. That sick bitch! (Not the dog)

    Skepticism and science fiction:
    Science fiction deconverted me, or at least opened my eyes. I remember the story that made me question the beliefs around me very clearly. I fondly remember that moment of doubt, then fear, and then a strange sort of numbness as I realised the implications. Then it slept for a decade or so, but the seed had been sewn 🙂
