I defy you to listen to these videos without watching, and tell me Niles Eldredge doesn't sound like Jeff Bridges

Go to: 'Psycho killer'? The Jared Lee Loughner case brings out the usual abuse

Regardless of this man's actual mental state, people should stop assuming all horrifically violent crimes are committed by the mentally unstable. Religious people in other countries frequently do just as terrible of things in the name of their religion, and no one tries to diagnose them.

If he turns out to be mentally ill, then fine, but the assumption should not swing in that direction, given the frequency of such crimes committed by people who, while not mentally ill, are obviously mentally overpowered by an idea or ideal.

Go to: Retracted autism study an 'elaborate fraud,' British journal finds

The most horrifying thing to me about this, is that anyone with even a tiny bit of intelligence who bothered to read the paper and look into its author, instead of just skimming the headline, could have come to the conclusion that this study was bogus years ago! Instead, great harm has been done over the years due to parental ignorance and endorsement of this fallacy by celebrities.

FYI, the debate can also be found on a few torrent websites (I won't say which, but I found it with just a little bit of googling).
