  1. Interesting podcast. My fall back is something Hitchens or Sagan said, that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I don’t trouble myself with things that lack such evidence, such as space aliens, UFO’s. That allows me to avoid most subjects.

    One of the great crimes of our times however, is that the label “skeptic” has been stolen from us by the likes of Dan Carlin, the Novella Brothers, and, unfortunately, this podcast. A skeptic is a person who is only moved by evidence, but in our society, refusal to look at evidence is considered part of skeptical reasoning. With JFK, for example, there are two kinds of people: Those who believe the official story, and those who have looked at the evidence.

    Which leads me to the fallacy of “lumping.” The official story of the JFK murder has long been unhinged. Massive and impressive evidence has been gathered. It is studiously ignored by people calling themselves skeptics! Lumping those topics together with things for which evidence is lacking or fraudulent, such as space aliens and UFO’s, is a cheap shot.

    Another example: Regarding the moon landings, it is easy to see that the photographs were faked. That does not prove that the landings were faked. Only the photographs. A true skeptic then asks the question: Why were the photos faked? That is the beginning, not the end of the skeptical inquiry process. The attitude that NASA says, so it is, is credulity in the extreme. That people who claim to be of skeptical mind adopt that position is insulting to thoughtful people.

    Anyway, my standard response to the fake skeptics of our age, those who delight in repeating the “conspiracy theory” mere and who buy every line of official government truth, is as follows:

    “These attitudes you have adopted – I know they comfort you. You are indifferent and incurious about the important events of our times. You are smug about it, thinking yourself wise to be so. But I must advise you that from a distance your attitude is indistinguishable from stupidity.”

  2. PS: Just for information, researchers, by comparing photos, have ruled out George H.W. Bush as the man in the photo in Dealey Plaza. Photographs are generally weak evidence anyway, as people read into them what they want to see.

  3. I was actually reminded of this from the post production addition on Podcasmasters but I suppose it fits into the Conspirathon theme a little better:
