God always was and always will be...something humans can't comprehend...
Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.

That's because it's illogical.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

It might take years to educate you, but here's a primer. Emotions don't refute logic, but emotions are the motivation for everything we do. But that doesn't mean emotions have an IQ, because they don't. You want to believe the fun stuff, but you ignore the logic along the way. Without logic it doesn't exist. Grow up and use both parts of the brain. That's why we have them.

Yeah, never mind.

Here's one that won't spark any debate.

#45: Climate Science



I, uh...I think it's got the wrong title card around the 58 second mark. I'm seeing it say, "The Capitalocene and the Politics of History."

Apparently this episode was re-edited to remove mentioning a study by Tyrone Hayes that hasn't stood up to further scrutiny (he claimed atrazine was affecting frogs, which led to Alex Jones' famous declaration, "THEY'RE TURNING THE FREAKIN' FROGS GAY!" For a good look into atrazine, see Myles Powers' three videos on Is Atrazine Turning The Freakin’ Frogs Gay?! – #1).
"Knowledge grows through infinite timelessness" -- the random fictional Deepak Chopra quote site
"Imagine an ennobling of what could be" -- the New Age BS Generator site
"You are also taking my words out of context." -- Justin
"Nullius in verba" -- The Royal Society ["take nobody's word for it"]
