Traditionally, skepticism has covered topics such as science, alternative medicine and the paranormal. But, should skeptics limit themselves to such topics? Ben King, author of the Grime and Reason blog, thinks not, arguing that skepticism should be expanded to cover politics and economics. Ben will join your host Tom Williamson to discuss the scope of skepticism, including a discussion of a post that caused some heated debate between Steve Novella and PZ Myers! As always, listeners are invited to call in and join the debate.
Join us as we discuss skepticism and the Jamaican media.
Our featured guests will be Cliff Hughes (of Nation News Network), Kathy Barrett (former news editor of RJR) and Lloyd D'Aguilar (host of online radio show - Looking Back, Looking Forward)
This show is hosted by two of Jamaica's most outspoken secular humanists - Clive Forrester, linguist and professor at York University in Toronto, and Hilaire Sobers, human rights lawyer in Washington DC. We have spent copious amounts of time debating with and challening the notion that Christian privelege should proceed unchecked in Jamaica, and have successfully managed to rally a group of other secularists to collaborate on a publication (forthcoming 2013).
This radio show provides a medium in which skeptics can discuss matters of science, critical thinking, religious imposition, and the seperation of church and state all from a Jamaican perspective, but playing close attention to the interconnectedness on the global landscape.
Tune in as we tackle the big questions each and every Sunday at 12:30PM EST (1:30PM Jamaican time) - lively banter, music and trivia, probing questions... we are Yardie Skeptics.
Please join Raina Saturday, July 21, 2012 for Reason, Science & Skepticism.
What is reason? Why is reason needed? What is science? Why is science important? What is skepticism? Why is skepticism healthy and needed? Please join us every other Saturday as we discuss these matters and more.
Please join us at Noon CST/1PM EST/10AM PST. The call-in number is 310-982-4273.
Dr. Greene's model is a breath of fresh air for some folks, but for others it's quite a leap from what they'd been thinking all along. Some skepticism is to be expected from the latter group, because seismic shifts in lenses are rare. The most persuasive way to get people moving in the right direction? Engage them in a discussion of students' lagging skills and unsolved problems with the ALSUP as the discussion guide.
One the one hand, technology seems to have a fair amount of saturation in Jamaica - most persons have access to the internet, social networking is pervasive, and an astronomical amount of pings are sent each day. So why aren't we capitalizing on the use of technology in key areas such as education, the law and governance, social services and security? What kind of opportunities might Jamaica be missing out on by not taking full advantage of it's technological capacity? Are lack of resources to blame or is it due to a lack of critical thinking? Join the Yardie Skeptics this Sunday, November 3rd at 12:30pm EST as we investigate the status of technological advancement in Jamaica and whether there is a connection between technology and rationality. Our special guests for this episode will be Mark Wynter, former managing director of Jamaica Digiport and Yvonne McCalla-Sobers, chair of the Jamaica government's Jamaica E-Learning Company.
