The rubbish end of the Mersey...
Those chaps down at the wide end of the river Mersey in the Merseyside Skeptics Society have started up a great podcast, Skeptics with a K, which is pretty awesome. High five! I’d definitely recommend subscribing to it on iTunes, the best way to describe it is a funnier version of the Skeptics Guide, with a good dose of Scouse. They have a talk in the pub planned for the 15th October with Ariane Sherine, which we’ll almost certainly be attending, even though it means a trip to Liverpool.
In other news, Crispian Jago has an amusing video posted that explains Homeopathy perfectly, and Carl Sagan has a brilliant new music video out.

Recently I’ve become morbidly fascinated with the work of Jack Chick, an evangelical christian who writes bible tracts designed to convert non-believers. To people that aren’t acquainted with these little gems, here are three charming example of his work, straight from his archives;
Only Psychopaths are allowed to teach Evolution in schools.
Man, that teacher is ANGRY!
Rock Music is the devils work.
Jack Chick really knows how to get down with da' kidz.
A brief conversation will convert a Muslim.
Yeah, like that'd ever happen.
I can assure you that I picked 3 tracts at random, I’ve not been cherry-picking to make Chick look daft. If I had, I almost certainly would have linked to this, a cautionary tale warning youngsters of the danger inherent in Dungeons & Dragons.
