Logically Critical Podcast

Description

In a world where gut feelings are given more authority than facts, where the average person is permitted to drive 2 tons of steel death, and ‘God did it’ is an acceptable answer to why something happened, your life may just depend on listening to this podcast. The LogicallyCritical podcast is intended to encourage critical thinking in everyday situations without the hassle of checking facts at the library. Rather than quote historical research or bore you with statistics about how many dentists suggest what cigarette to their patients, this will use information that we can all reasonably agree on, and will show by example how to more-fully explore any given issue be it traffic, religion, or how to lure a weasel into a cardboard box. The podcast is no longer being actively produced (10/28/07), but the episodes are still available.

Ode to a Superhero

Author: LogicallyCritical
Sun, Jul 29, 2007


Ignoring all the fantastical abilities of superheroes, I’d like to point out numerous reasons why we don’t have, or want, masked-people perched atop buildings at night trying to help us.

Why Atheism?

Author: LogicallyCritical
Tue, Jul 03, 2007


A practical look at why SOME people just can’t get behind the idea that an all-powerful entity created us and is deciding everyone’s fate. And yes, I use atheist and non-believer interchangeably.

Yes, we’ve all been told that drugs are bad. Let’s explore that. Maybe they’re worse than we thought. Maybe they’re better. Maybe we won’t actually come to any conclusion, but hey! we’ll kill some time.
