Cellar Door Skeptics 125: Occupy Till I Come and Other Tales from the Cellar

Cellar Door Skeptics Podcast is at it again with another episode solely focused on the Chris Squared discussions of current events and relevant science topics. The show begins with a discussion of the recently deceased Barbara Bush, Justin Bieber’s religious musical, and a discussion on Stephen Hawking’s final paper.

If that was not enough to entice you, the duo resurrects “Crazy S*** Chris Used to Believe”. They delve into a look at the internet pastor Dave who thinks masturbation makes you gay. And they do not stop their as they talk about Tanner’s upbring with the willfully ignorant church who taught Tanner things it took years to correct. They examine how “Pastor Dave” is not the coach he seems and work toward engaging the bible in a thoughtful discussion on how crazy “Pastor Dave” spews toxicity in the ears of those who listen.

The show wraps up talking about artificial sweeteners, the science or lack thereof, and how we should all do our due diligence to ensure that we do not believe the trending garbage spewed in the name of “natural health”.

Focus on the Family is Spreading HIV for the Lord

The Trump administration has teamed up with Focus on the Family to fight the HIV and AIDS epidemic happening in South Africa and we are going to break down the numbers RIGHT NOW.

An affiliate of Focus on the Family (FOTF) received a $49,505 grant under the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief

A 200 piece Bulk Ultra Thin Large Quantity Super Tough Latex Condom package costs = $35.63 *giggle

So using the whole grant: $49,505 / $35.63 = we get 1389.42 packages

And in total 1389 packages x 200 condoms = 277,800 condoms for just under $50,000

That could allow us to do the following:
277,800 condoms / 7000 students = 39 condoms for each student. This would also leave over 4600 condoms left over ’cause rounding.

So what do we have for $49,505? 7,000 students would get 39 condoms (think back to how many condoms YOU used when you were still in school or does this just prove that I was a nerd…) which could make a serious difference in the safe sexual exploration of budding young adults. But why the 7,000 number? What is the relevance? Ask, and ye shall receive…

“Focus on the Family’s Thriving Family is tasked with using these funds to prevent HIV and AIDS by implementing its global abstinence-only purity pledge program, called ‘No Apologies,’ to 7,000 ‘learners’ in 90 schools in South Africa between October 2017 and September 2018.”

So yeah, that money goes into a salary, for an evangelical, to tell children: Don’t have sex ’cause evil demon fire. To which I assume, the children said “suuuuuuure old white western person”, then promptly did whatever the hell they wanted as soon as the bell rang (I know I would have).

But there is also this: a quick search online shows a box of 12 condoms is 479 Rands or roughly $40 US Dollars

South Africa falls somewhere in the middle of the industrialized world, with a median salary at the dollar equivalent of US $36,180, adjusted for purchasing power parity. So how often with a salary of under 40K would you buy $40 condoms? Remember, that salary value has to trickle down to the kids and asking for condom money is probably one of the LAST things teens are willing to do. So a teen, in a country with a equalized median income of roughly 61% of the US median income, has to pay 4 times what we do here for the same quantity of HIV preventing “Devil Socks”.

But even better, studies have shown that if you teach ACTUAL SEXUAL HEALTH EDUCATION the unwanted pregnancy rate, STD rate, and general sexual stupidity quotient of a region is drastically reduced.

So spend that money on condoms or education if you really want to help, because the numbers clearly show that if you use Focus on the Family’s godly word you will spread disease and pestilence in what I can only say is a very Biblical way.

Cellar Door Skeptics 124: Women v. Religion: The Case Against Faith

This week on Cellar Door Skeptics, Tanner interviews three amazing authors representing their new book, Women VS Religion. Alexis, Candace, and Karen join the show to talk about their essays on how religion has affected them as women.

The book is a collection of essays by different women, from different walks of life, all talking about the damage that religion has done to women. Each essay is a different story told through different lenses to allow for a unique blend of upbringing, beliefs, apostasy, and an understanding on how to survive the different aspects of religion as a women.

The show is important because it helps to highlight the unique struggles women face during and after religion has touched or been apart of their lives. This episode is special as it gave Tanner a perspective of how others suffer differently than he has while showing the amazing strength of others and what they have to go through.

Cellar Door Skeptics 123: Orbitcon and Secular Women Work Conventions

This episode is jam packed with amazing convention talk.

Cellar Door Skeptics hosts return from their talk at the Michigan Atheist Convention. They talk about their time there, the friendships they made, and the other AMAZING speakers. They reflect on the whole convention and what it means to them.

BUT…..

The best part of the show is when Tanner does an interview with Stephanie Zvan orchestrator of Orbitcon, an online convention that is designed to meet the needs and interests of the socially active atheist community while providing entertainment and education all from an online platform easily available to everyone.

They also talk about the future conference Secular Women Work, what it means to the community and how they are preparing this year to have even more workshops to inspire you to be better activists. This conference is exciting because it talks about women as activists and how we can all learn different tips and tricks pertaining to being better activists in our own communities.

Cellar Door Skeptics 122: Is the Atheist Movement the Sensible Middle

Cellar Door Skeptics begins the episode this week talking about the media corporations, specifically Sinclair, and what it means to have one corporation own 70% of the media networks. The discussion surrounds printed newspapers and if the country would move back to printed media if we started to have to pay for online articles.

The duo also look at Bill “Shootee” new proposal to help children read. Essentially his idea was to have a public place and demand kids read. This sounds like an authoritarian version of a library. Funny how in the last 5 years that the GOP has controlled Michigan we are only now trying to deal with our education problem.

Lastly Chris Squared decided to talk about a recent article in Vice about how the Atheist movement looks like it is veering toward an alt right political position. They tackle the dialog between the Vice article and a Friendly Atheist article. As they flesh out these two articles, an earnest discussion started with a look at a prominent Atheist whose political beliefs have veered toward a Neo-con mentality. They deconstruct whether the “Sensible Middle” is where the Atheist movement has always been or if it is leaving and heading more conservative.

Cellar Door Skeptics 121: MRSA Infects Facebook

https://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics/mrsa-infects-facebook

Cellar Door Skeptics pulls out all the stops this week with an Amazing episode ready for your listening pleasure. The show begins with a look at a new antibiotic that is in animal trials that could help super flu diseases like MRSA. They look at what the new study has found and how promising it could be to helping stop the rate of death caused by this awful disease.

After they pour out a little hand sanitizer on their microphones, the duo look at Facebook and its breach of personal integrity and a degradation of Facebook morals. Tanner downloads his facebook history and they talk about the damage done and how it feels Facebook does not want to admit wrongdoing.

The show closes tonight talking about ICE detention centers. After an NPR article was released a few months ago, they decide to look into what detention centers mean and how awful it is to live in a government mandated housing run by for profit companies.

Do not forget if you want to meet Cellar Door Skeptics and share a pint or two with them, they will be at the Michigan Atheist Convention April 7th in Detroit.

Cellar Door Skeptics 120: Betsy Devos Dumpster Fire and Jesus Returns

Cellar Door Skeptics returns this week with an in depth look into Betsy Devos and her recent interview blunder. The duo talks through the fact that she was not able to present her platform with anything more than talking points. They also examine the school rankings in hopes that Betsy will listen to the episode and be able to actually go to some of the schools that may need help. They also compare the difference in rating from Charter Schools to Public Schools to see if there is any truth behind Betsy Devos candid claim that Choice is Better.

Later Tanner interviews Author Matthew James a PHD Neuroscientist who has written a book about Jesus Returning. Now this is not your average book and the interview is full of irrelevance and laughter. The book is about Jesus coming back to try and reclaim the earth after the failure of his father, God, to do so. Humans are just running to wild without his divine presence and Jesus tries to rectify it. This light hearted interview will let you get to know the author and preview a funny book.

The show ends on a high note, talking about Fusion and how it is playing a role in changing how we perceive energy. They talk through the science behind a new experiment done recently and examine what fruits may come from this type of discovery.

Don’t forget you can join Cellar Door Skeptics April 7th at the Michigan Atheist 30th State convention in Farmington Hills Michigan.

Cellar Door Skeptics is back with another amazing episode chock full segments ready to educate and anger you. The show begins with a memoriam tribute to all those who no longer work in the Trump Administration.

They discuss the effects this could have on different industries and how maybe it is not the best way to Make America Great Again.

Then a great interview with Steve from Michigan Atheist joins the show to talk about the upcoming convention and the history of the Michigan Atheist Organization. This is a great local conference that is worth getting everyone together to talk about family this year.

Lastly the Chris Squared address what to do when well known and influential scientists, present material that conflict with the current scientific theory. They address how to handle it while ensuring that we all remain skeptic. They want to believe, but ensure a challenge is in place to not just accept bunk science. We all know not all science can be believed just because the person presenting it is well known or had an amazing discovery.

Cellar Door Skeptics 118: Bad Sex with Keith and Jen from Not Another Atheist Podcast

This week the duo are joined by long time friends and supporters of the show, Jen and Keith from Not Another Atheist Podcast. After last weeks episode where once again the team had to address the ridiculousness of America’s inability to get mass murder under control in the country, they decide to take a break from the mayhem and hangout with Jen and Keith.

The show starts out saucy with a look at the “Worst Sex Scenes in Fiction” once again. Last year Hanna and Tanner covered 2016’s worst sex scenes and laughed the hardest they had in a long time. So they decided to do it all over again and read through some of the best (or worst) of 2017. Be prepared for honest emissions and some raunchy good time.

For the last part of the show, Jen and Keith help Chris Squared to work through a Proust Questionnaire. They read through some of the best get to know you questions while learning more about the inner workings of their fellow podcasters. This segment is sure to entertain as many honest truths are revealed and a few Trump impersonations to lighten the mood.

Cellar Door Skeptics 117: David Silverman / American Atheist Convention / Guns and Drunk Driving

LISTEN HERE!

Cellar Door Skeptics has a riveting episode prepared for everyone. This episode has two topics; Atheist Conventions and Gun Control.

David Silverman joins the duo this week to talk about the American Atheist Convention coming up on Easter weekend. They talk about the dynamic of the convention, their desire to present an activist convention while still holding true to their atheist roots. American Atheist also is working hard to give back to the community even during their convention.

After the interview Chris Squared talk about the argument some people are posing that since drunk driving accidents are caused by people wielding cars and no one is seeking to ban cars, then why are people seeking to ban guns. They talk through this misconception and discuss more comprehensible gun laws inside of the United States. They are not out to ban guns but to lower the amount of mass shootings and gun deaths inside of States.
