I believe you uploaded the last podcast

No, I just grabbed the wrong link. It's fixed.

As a gamer myself, I'm just so tired of people trying to rip my hobby down for completely baseless reasons.
You mentioned playing yourself Shane, what do you play just out of curiosity?
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
The more you know...

I don't have time to play a whole lot these days. I did the whole Duke Nukem and Quake games when they were out, and also a bit of Starcraft. Also the Myst trilogy.

I wonder... doesn't every experience we make alter the way our minds work to some extend?

I'm embarrassed to be from Alabama. I didn't even hear about this story.  :shrug:

I've only been to Bay Minette (muh-net btw.  ;) ) once, and like most, on my way to Florida. lol From what I remember, this story doesn't shock me, but unfortunately, these kind of towns are commonplace in Alabama. The only city I know of here that isn't drowned in religious drivel and actually embraces science is Huntsville, AL, home of the Huntsville Space Center.

Yeah... I typed that before actually listening to the podcast where you said the same thing.
I suppose that kind of knowledge is too basic for Ms Greenfield.

She's Professor of Synaptic Pharmacology at Lincoln College, Oxford, and is an expert in brain physiology. She knows exactly what she's doing--that's how she was able to craft these correct phrases into scary-sounding phenomena; she's dishonest and she doesn't care.

I imagine when she get's called out it'll play out like this...


Working every day to expose the terrible price we pay for government.
