Cellar Door Skeptics dedicated the podcast to helping bring to light stories that may enrage you, enthrall you, educate you, and entertain you. Tonight’s episode comes with a content warning.

CN: Abortion Clinic Violence / Anti-Choice Violence

This episode has a special place in the hearts of the host. Their first topic for the tonight is a great interview with Lindsay Beyerstein and her new documentary “Care in Chaos”. The filmmaker talks about her experiences with a couple of women’s health clinics that are being bombarded by antics from Anti-Choice groups that will make your blood boil. This heartfelt look at how awful our nation can be, shows the strength and courage of the women who work at these clinics.

As the episode rolls onward, the duo discuss extreme poverty in America, and how the a new study finds poverty of the world is not always combated with compassion and action, but with laws forcing homeless people to struggle and dig themselves a deeper ditch. They do not go off about healthcare this time but about the poor treatment of our nations and the world’s poor people.

The last segment they lighten up the show with a discussion on Hanlon’s Razor and a new study on dogs breeding the best traits from wolves. Both are a unique inquiry into some of the suttle thoughts the team has as they prep for each episode.

If I were god

If I were god, I would have set the universe in motion from an easily discoverable point of creation. I wouldn’t have told primitive beings through mental meditation techniques the importance of the origins story. To proclaim the beginning of life I would have created a pillar indestructible and visible to all those who wanted to view it

 

If I were god, I would have created one language that humans could all speak. It would be easily understood and without nuisance to learn. I would have enlightened man to garner the power of this language in order to prevent the division of language barriers quite unlike the biblical story of the tower of Babel where I purposely confused mankind

 

If I were god, the world would not have natural disasters that kill millions of people. If I felt the need to end the lives of millions I would proclaim aloud why; I would not take the innocent, but focus on those that went against my commands. I would write it in the sky or appear simultaneously to everyone to make this proclamation to allow time for repentance and redemption.

 

If I were god, I would I would make it known to man every time he asked me. There wouldn’t be individual visions but one consolidated vision give to those who ask where I am. Humans would know that I am real, not by having to develop and retool old philosophies, but by establishing one never changing philosophy. There would be no need for churches of varying types because everyone would know what I stood for and who I am.
