TheESP – Ep. #292 – Querdenker terrorists

Radicalized anti-covid activists

After recent events in Germany and Italy we worry that anti-maskers now may be a terrorist threat. In This Week in Skepticism we hear about Jacob Grimm and the possibility that some of the Grimm stories are based on real events(?) Pope Francis seems to have totally lost it regarding the facts about pregnancies, but science has never been the strong side of the Catholic Church. We then dig into the news:

  • GERMANY: Are Querdenkers terrorists?
  • ITALY: Covid terrorists also in Italy
  • GERMANY: New brochure about vaccinations out
  • SWEDEN: Are confessional schools on their way out?
  • INTERNATIONAL: We’re fucked – big time. Climate change, UN warns politicians
  • UK / ISRAEL: Homeopathic treatment of Covid works! Wait, no…

A Swedish priest gets this week’s prize for being Really Right, who could have guessed?

Enjoy!

0:44:20 QUOTE AND FAREWELL

    “The fact that any person or institution, however well respected, praises or adopts something never constitutes proof of anything. It might merely illustrate that even well-educated people or powerful institutions can sometimes commit the silliest and most obvious of mistakes.”
    / Edzard Ernst (30 January 1948 – ), German academic physician and researcher living the UK, specializing in the study of complementary and alternative medicine. /
