SFR 253 – Donald Prothero Gives Science Deniers A “Reality Check”

–Chinese “ghostbuster” arrested for performing sexorcism on a woman
Pope Emeritus Benedict contradicts previous explanation; now claims God told him to resign
–A review of “The Place Beyond the Pines,” PLUS we give our thoughts on Ben Affleck being cast as Batman
Donald-Prothero–Bradley Manning, now asking to be known as Chelsea Manning, is sentenced to 35 years and will ask for presidential pardon
–Anti-superstition activist, Narendra Dabholkar, murdered in India
–29% of respondents in Louisiana possibly believe Barack Obama more responsible for Hurricane Katrina response than George W. Bush
–Creationist museum worker struck by lightning while attempting to shut down zip line ride
–70 year old Australian man, in an effort to achieve sexual gratification, sticks a fork up his penis
–Post-interview: Some confusion over whether “Age denialism” is real. It kind of is, but it is NOT covered in Prothero’s book. AIDS denialism, however, is. Sorry for any mix-up.

In the 2nd hour, Dr. Donald Prothero, author of the new book “Reality Check,” returns to discuss how denial of scientific findings – whether it’s climate change, evolution, etc –  threatens our future.
