Skeptiles

Skeptiles Skeptiles: Skeptical Response Podcast. Skeptiles is a weekly podcast about atheism, skepticism, politics, comedy and drinking.

03/22/2021

Hello gang, Skeptiles is back! At least the old files are anyway. In case you forgot why you liked this page, Skeptiles was an atheism and politics pod and if you are reading this, you apparently like that sort of thing.

Also, I have a question: would you like to see Skeptiles continue as a politics only (plus comedy, of course) podcast? There are plenty of other places for atheist content and, frankly, I don't want to do atheist stuff anymore.

So, what do you think? Like or comment if you think it's a good idea. Comment also if you have an issue or want to ask me a question.

Hey everyone, we're back!

Well, the show isn't back, but the page is. Sorry if you found a shoe sales site for awhile there. We let the domain expire and had to get a new one. Check out our old shows at http://skeptilespod.com/

Unfortunately, I have to correct all the old links on this FB page as well. Hope to get around to that soon, but check out the new site directly until then.

The left has Islam all wrong: Bill Maher, Pamela Geller and the reality progressives must face

"There is no legitimate controversy over why the Kouachi brothers targeted Charlie Hebdo. They murdered not to redress the social grievances or right the historical wrongs the PEN authors named. They explicitly told us why they murdered — for Islam, to avenge the Prophet Muhammad. Progressives who think otherwise need to face that reality. Put another way, the Kouachi brothers may have suffered racial discrimination and even “marginalization,” yet had they not been Muslims, they would not have attacked Charlie Hebdo. They would have had no motive."-Jeffrey Taylor

Confusion over Islam and how to relate to it imperils free speech, without which no secular republic can survive

Skeptiles: Episode 118 – F**k you, Garry Trudeau!

Skeptiles for Monday, April 20th, 2015 — happy stoner day, potheads, too bad for you we don’t talk about pot. But we do talk about unfunny “satirist” and living reason for advocating that baby boomers just die already, Garry Trudeau who believes that free speech and satire are not rights but privileges. We also talk about police murdering black people. We discuss the anniversary of the Union defeat of southern slave owning traitors and The War Nerd’s article about which southern traitors should have hanged. James Dobson and Bobby Jindal say some crazy s**t. And Joe brings us fresh Arrested Developments and a quiz.

Comedian Patton Oswalt: I See Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins Like Christians See Fred Phelps

Note, he refers to people's deeply held beliefs as fairy tales and those who believe they should fight a war for their religion as unstable idiots but some how think what Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins say is outrageous. What an as***le.

Comedian Patton Oswalt and Salon haven’t had a great relationship over the years, with the website writing several articles critical of his statements, and Oswalt rebutting them for not getting what he was saying, and so on.

Love Glenn but what he & other liberals can't seem to understand is that there is no contradiction in loathing Islam AND despising a foreign policy that insists on blowing up half the world (while domestically screaming that we're too broke to fund social policies). Islam is fascist as f**k. Pointing out how awful Israel is (and it is awful) or how fascist other religions are (take your pick), does not make it any less fascist. But anyway, here's Greenwald if you missed it. ==> "I also previously noted that this new bombing campaign meant that Obama had become the fourth consecutive U.S. President to order bombs dropped on Iraq. Standing alone, those are both amazingly revealing facts. American violence is so ongoing and continuous that we barely notice it any more. Just this week, a U.S. drone launched a missile that killed 10 people in Yemen, and the dead were promptly labeled “suspected militants” (which actually just means they are “military-age males”); those killings received almost no discussion."

President Obama, in his post-election press conference yesterday, announced that he would seek an Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) from the new Congress, one that would authorize Obama’s bombing campaign in Iraq and Syria — the one he began three months ago. If one were being generous, one…
