"Skepticism 101" is the best description of this real-time journey of inquiry through the eyes of a real, everyday, emotion-driven human. Stephen Gibson is on a quest of discovery using a new form of critical thinking that he calls Truth-Driven Thinking. It's his personal quest to find ever-elusive "truth", amidst the hype and information overload of today's world. Guests who've helped him on the way include: Michael Shermer on science and evolution; Bishop John Shelby Spong on the "Sins of Scripture"; Tom Harpur on the historicity of Jesus; Paul Campos on "The Obesity Myth"; Dr. Robert Price on New Testament truth; Joe Nickell and James Randi on paranormal investigations; Dr. David Pimentel on ethanol; and Dr. Jerry Hoffman on evidence-based medicine. Science, reason, and skepticism are the tools to be used, but without ignoring both the humor and the fascinating reality of our human, emotional experience. It's a quest for intellectual honesty and free inquiry: part instructions for skeptic wannabes, part "learning by way of open dialogue", part audioblog of real-time personal discovery. No sacred cows, Steve critically examines everything from paranormal beliefs, "drunk driving" statistics, circumcision, miracle health cures, health and obesity, prostitution, drugs, religion, philosophy, atheism, Christianity, conspiracy theories, psychology, urban legends, paradigms and heuristics, epistemology and much more. Please join the conversations in pursuit of truth driven thinking!
