So we tried to make a podcast!

Unfortunately our lack of planning shows, as does the absence fo the host Nautilidae and so we ended up with a very free-form, wide ranging converstion, just a chat among friends on a Saturday afternoon, and of course not necessarily well informed one! Still we gave it a go, and if you are really bored the Rational Skepticism Podcast Episode Zero can be heard here —

I’m the second voice heard after Hackenslash’s groovy theme music and his opening. Continue reading

The End of an Era: Richard Dawkins forum to close

Unfortunately I popped over to RD.net to see what was going on, and found that an announcement had been made that the forum is to close. It will remain live for 30 days to allow us to retrieve anything we want to save: given I had written over 10,000 posts (7,000+ remain after an earlier purge) and I guess many million words as I am not known for my brevity, that will prove immensely difficult. Given that the search has not worked for months, in order to protect other parts of the website and keep the bandwidth manageable, well it will be next to impossible. Continue reading

I get banned from Dawkin’s forum. Netdrama!

Oh dear! I have for the last few months been pursued by a small but incredibly tedious group of three or four fundie atheists, who in at least two cases I suspect have serious issues, around the Richarddawkins forum. Today I find that I am again banned. Not in itself a big issue – I probably deserved it, and its only for a week — but the issue is that the parties responsible seem to once again remain unwarned and completely free to continue their harassment.

Debunking the Myth that Jesus Never Existed – the Historical Sources for Jesus, Part One
