You're very welcome Chris. Really don't know what to make of Diane Walsh PasulkaThanks Alex, good episode, shows me that you can have interesting discussion without needing a winner or loser -give or take a few slaps and jabs,
I liked Al saying he is not married to his current options - Unlike most academics and politicians who simply cant say that. - The freedom of not for profit podcasting!
The censorship thing is disturbing, but a fact of life - at least there are other platforms for now. I know there are some legislative attempts in many countries that will try and shut that down at the border ( or at least electronic border)
I see that Diane Walsh Pasulka’s new book is out later this year - hopefully she will be doing the interview rounds and you can catch her?
Encounters: Experiences with Nonhuman Intelligences
@Alex, thanks for the interesting podcast. Using the 6mil to question the holocaust is wrong, yes. But not allowing to question the exact number, while not denying the holocaust, is wrong too. Also, if you allow mainstream science publications as an argument, you should then be consistent and allow that for catastrophic global warming discussions too. Yes, Christianity opened a door for blaming Jews for Christ crucifixion, but also allowed the God of the old testament to "conquer" the large part of the world in the process; and, what's more important, nazis exterminated not only Jews, but gypsies, and had "big" plans for Slavs, etc. You can't blame all that on Christianity. Evil transcends nations and countries, I think that is what Al was trying to say. It does not matter what label you stick on it, commie, nazi, "they hate us for our freedom", whatever. It is contagious.
