Phil kicks ass on the radio!

Back during TAM5, our buddy Phil Plait went on Penn Jillette’s radio show to school Joe Rogan (moon hoaxer), and we finally have the audio. Check out Phil’s story on his blog.

Joe, for the record, isn’t such a bad guy. Sure, he has some silly ideas about whether or not man walked on the moon, but he’s pretty damned skeptical in other areas that count. Here’s a video of Joe ripping into a Biblical literalist on YouTube.

  1. I just listened to the podcast version of Phill Plait on Penn's show. It was pretty funny. I like Joe Rogan too (especially after the last time he was on Penn's show) but I tend to actually get angry at moon hoaxers. I was happy that everything had a fairly good vibe to it and was lighthearted. Joe also wasn't a die-hard moon-hoaxer, to be fair.

  2. I find it can be quite stressful to listen to debates, especially when people are talking past each other, but this one was great, more of this sort of thing!

  3. Yeah this was a good one. I just recently heard the debate on Infidel guy with kent hovind where all he says over and over again that "Evolutionism's god is Time!"

    This was a great change of pace from that.
