Madness or Miracle is the title. The skeptic view is being represented by James Randi. Thursday at 10pm.

...no one has ever found a 4.5 billion year old stone artifact (at the right geological stratum) with the words "Made by God."
No Sense of Obligation by Matt Young

"Say what you will about the sweet miracle of unquestioning faith. I consider the capacity for it terrifying and vile!"
Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

They (Women Marines) don't have a nickname, and they don't need one. They get their basic training in a Marine atmosphere, at a Marine Post. They inherit the traditions of the Marines. They are Marines.

For about 30 seconds im sure. With equal time he can own any of them.

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

I don't know if I will be able to stomach this program. Those poor deluded people. Here is a write-up on the program:

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Primetime/story?id=482292

Here is the last line in the article:
quote:
"Primetime" examined the medical records of the patients followed in this hour, and also consulted one of the world's most respected surgeons, Dr. Mehmet Oz. He has some surprising things to say about whether there could be real medical merit to "John of God's" controversial healing methods.

I think I am going to be ill..



If I knew then what I know now then I would know more now than I know.

Well, Randi didn't even get 30 seconds. We spent a lot of time with an "open-minded" doctor.

I saw it. What a load of crap it was. Looks like ABC doesn't want to miss out on the ratings Fox got airing the Alien Autopsy. Television news is becoming an oxymoron...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?
