Lab Track: Pray

Lab Track: Pray

More skeptical hip-hop! I can’t get enough! Today’s lab track also happened to be submitted by (and features!) another rapper who was highlighted in a Lab Track, Marshall “Gripp” Gillson (Go listen to that one, too!). Today’s artist is Jack & The Mad Psyentist, who just released The Five Pillars EP, a musical critique on modern society using the five pillars of Is... »

Lab Track: Gonna Have a Problem

Lab Track: Gonna Have a Problem

Today’s lab track features a hip-hop artist from my own fair city of Chicago. Gabe Caruso raps about a variety of topics, but many of them tend toward a criticism of religion. This one is no exception. It’s easy to write a song about atheism or skepticism and have it come off stilted — nobody ever said words like “falsifiable” were poetic — but Gabe is one of th... »

The Perot Museum: An Oasis of Science

The Perot Museum: An Oasis of Science

With all of the controversy surrounding Texas schools teaching Creationism (including Young Earth Creationism which teaches that the Earth is only 6,000 years old), and Texas Governor Rick Perry stating “In Texas, we teach both creationism and evolution,” when he was asked a question by a young boy during his campaign, scientific-minded Texans have cause for alarm. But even in the bible belt there... »

Good Design: San Diego Coalition of Reason Billboard

Good Design: San Diego Coalition of Reason Billboard

We complain a lot about bad designs in advertising, and OW MY EYES there is just SO much to complain about. But today, I am happy to give a shout-out to a team that managed to take a difficult topic and make it both beautiful and accessible. Aesthetics and immediate positive messaging is never more important than when it is used in advertising and specifically in billboards, as such little time is... »

Fauxtography Part 2: “PSYCHO”kinesis

Fauxtography Part 2: “PSYCHO”kinesis

My inspiration this week is telekinesis and psychokinesis. In scouring the nightmare of “scientific” research that is out there on telekinesis/psychokinesis, I actually learned an interesting factoid about the two words. Originally, the word “telekinesis” was used to describe objects being moved by ghosts, demons, imps, or other such supernatural forces via a medium. The na... »

AI: An Atheist Church?

AI: An Atheist Church?

Dutch reverend Klaas Hendrikse has taken a more modern approach to religion. Much to the consternation of Christians in more conservative areas of the Netherlands, he has decided to teach the bible as a book of allegorical fiction, that our life here is all we have, and he has removed much of the divinity from Christianity—even going as far as conceding that Jesus may not have existed at all. He e... »
