Sigh… So Ken Ham, bearded Jesus lover of Ark encounter and Bill Nye debate fame. The Nerds are joined by Natalie from the Science Enthusiast podcast and Science Moms documentary to talk about all things Ham.
Christmas… Why are you watching this and not spending time with your loved ones? Perhaps you feel that the commercialisation of Christmas has become rampant and the true meaning has come and gone? Well then perhaps the Christian warrior Kirk Cameron can help you see how all these apparent different odd traditions are actually all Christian traditions. This movie is the result of when someone with out Logic tries to make a logical argument.

Today, does science give intelligent design an unfair deal? Is it real a science? What does it even mean? Jonathan McLatchie gave a Skeptics in the pub talk where he tries to convince people that ID really is a science. Not surprisingly the Nerds somewhat disagree.
Thanks to Teeside Skeptics for hosting the talk
Myles James and the one they call Buck sat down and subjected themselves to the 2014 Creationist ‘film’ Gilmore Girls find Jebus or officially know as ‘A Matter of Faith’. The film centres around a young woman’s attempted enlightenment at university all the while her family and fellow christians try to brain wash her out of reason. Will she get back in the game and work out which came first chicken or egg, this and other exciting questions will not be answered.
In all our great fiction we find elements of truth, stories may be incredible and beyond believable but what makes them great is that they hold a mirror up and make us look. “Godzilla” a city destroying monster awoken by the testing of an atomic bomb, very clearly and purposefully represented fears of a nuclear holocaust. “Teen Wolf” on the other hand can be (quite convincingly) argued to be unintentional parable for 1980s white Americas fears of black people.
Our ancient ancestors were no different, they told stories and intentionally and unintentionally their hopes, fears, reality and the zeitgeist of the time would have found its way into them. So I ask this question
Is The Biblical Genesis an allegory for the Agricultural Revolution?
Myles and James are back in the same room to review the creationist film ‘God of Wonder’
This film is full of the normal lack of evidence and appealing to authority and incredulity. Watch it just for the humming birds.
This week we are joined by our good friend Quad error for a chat about Kent Hovind.
This week Myles and James debunk and criticise the 2008 documentary Expelled no intelligence allowed. In which a shocking turn of events occurs with religious people have to lie in order to try protect their ideas.
