Go to: The Nightline 'Faceoff'

Tack's Avatar Jump to comment 12 by Tack

I'm trying to post direct download links, but when I submit the URLs and post the comment, the site comes back with an insightful "yes" and the comment is not posted.

So here I try again, with more text and fewer links. There are 9 URLs in the series, just change the last digit: http://video-cdn.abcnews.com/100322_ntl_faceoff_1_embed.flv

The content looks geolocated so it'll probably be fastest in Canada, but I suspect should work anywhere.

I don't mind POI's substandard audio quality (for guests who are interviewed by phone) so much because the quality of the content is very good.

The Infidel Guy Show, on the other hand, fails on both counts. Meanwhile The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe takes first prize on both counts.

Go to: The God Fraud

Sam Harris is usually so formal and well-spoken in his prose -- a quality I've always admired in him, actually -- but, I must say, he paints so much better with the brush of sarcasm.

Go to: Richard Dawkins Foundation - 2009 Fundraiser

It seems to me that the video was laced with the same kind of Lord Privy Seals that Dawkins criticized Expelled for. :)

Not that I minded at all. And I really liked the background music.

I recently kicked $100 over to Wikipedia for their fundraising campaign, and I see no reason not to do the same for the RDF. What could be a better use of my money than to help the advancement of human knowledge and understanding?

Their sentencing should have included injection of a curable disease like leprosy.

Of course this would be horrible, but I can't deny that as I entertained the idea, I very briefly delighted over the irony.
