SFR 264 – How to Think Like a Scientist

–We kick off with a discussion about Muslim extremism, with recent events at a “Muslim Peace Conference” and a pro-Female Genital Mutilation petition leading us to ask whether liberals are betraying themselves by labeling criticisms of Islam as “Islamophobia”?
guyh–More members of the Marks Family “psychic” circle are sentenced for their role in the ongoing fraud.
–One person shot and three arrested in a Bigfoot hunting blunder that you’ve just gotta hear about.
George Romero offers a minor observation of The Walking Dead, and fans of the show flip out.
–News and rumors related to Ghostbusters 3.
–We open the SFR Mailbag to talk about a piece of hate mail directed toward Bobby from someone claiming to be possessed by a demon.

In the 2nd hour, we spoke with Guy Harrison, author of the new book “Think:  Why You Should Question Everything,” about the virtues of skepticism, how our brains try to mislead us, and why we should aim to think like scientists in our everyday life.
