Frank Turek Isn’t a Total Dick
The other night around 2am, I watched a debate between Frank Turek and Alex O’Connor (CosmicSkeptic) on morality because that’s where my life is, currently. It was a great conversation. I learned quite a lot, including these two things:
- CosmicSkeptic is a brilliant young man. He was only 18 in this video, I believe.
- Frank Turek isn’t as much of a dick as seems to be in his sermons and other debates (maybe Hitchens and Dawkins just bring out the worst in him).
It’s definitely worth a watch. Check it out HERE.
I’m not sure how I’ve never seen this, but thanks to Matt for sending me this Reno 911 clip on Instagram. If you have a couple minutes to spare, it’s fucking hilarious.

Astrology is a Touchy Subject
Woo boy, lemme tell ya. I made a post on Instagram about astrology, and it quickly became my most popular post ever…and not only in a good way. Here was my post:
I got several comments about astrology being harmless and something that people who deconstruct Christianity get into because they were never allowed to look into it as a Christian. I get that, and it makes a lot of sense to me, but I also think it’s not a great thing to put so much stock into pseudoscience. My friend, Rebekah (The Curious Atheist) made a blog post about astrology:
“Almost everyone I’ve come across who has an interest in astrology is against multi-level marketing schemes, organized religion, bigoted nationalism, conspiracy theories, and other forms of science denial. Something about astrology is too tantalizing for people to pass up: it’s “in”, it’s perceived as harmless, and it’s fun whether or not it’s true.”
