TheESP – Ep. #262 – A Little Room to Cry In

Download

This week we are happy that the Covid-19 Communication Handbook have been translated into German. A Swedish translation is underway and hopefully many more. We then celebrate Copernicus birthday before we look at the news:

  • Secret Facebook group of academics, researchers and opinion-formers spreads misinformation about Swedish corona response
  • Researchers study the link between practicing alternative medicine and attitude towards vaccinations
  • Facebook finally bans misinformation about all vaccines
  • Marketer of alkalizing drops could go to jail for potentially dangerous fraud
  • Guy launches GoFundMe campaign to launch his flat-earther friend into space
  • The guy (Edzard Ernst) is not just sitting around – publishes a book every few months now
  • Polish women should have “a room to cry in” in Church after abortion
  • Apostolic remains lying in Rome?

To round off the episode the Romanian Orthodox Church gets the Really Wrong Award for continuing to kill people in the name of religion.

Enjoy!

0:52:50 QUOTE AND FAREWELL
“In the long run my observations have convinced me that some men, reasoning preposterously, first establish some conclusion in their minds which, either because of its being their own or because of their having received it from some person who has their entire confidence, impresses them so deeply that one finds it impossible ever to get it out of their heads. Such arguments in support of their fixed idea as they hit upon themselves or hear set forth by others, no matter how simple and stupid these may be, gain their instant acceptance and applause. On the other hand whatever is brought forward against it, however ingenious and conclusive, they receive with disdain or with hot rage — if indeed it does not make them ill.”

/ Galileo Galilei (15 February 1564 – 8 January 1642), Italian astronomer, physicist and engineer. /
