has anyone here ever heard of the Dogon Tribe. It's a tribe in Africa that could spot stellar objects in space without the aid of a much needed telescope.

I'm trying to find out the evidence for claims that they could spot Sirius B without the aid of telescope and I basically just get speculation.

Oh yes, these are fantastic. And now I need to stop scrolling through them, or I'll kill my entire weekend just looking everything up for verification.

That "two truths and a lie" game just got real.

DVR suggestion: "Going Deep with David Rees"

My husband just got me hooked on this show. The host takes super ordinary things like climbing a tree or shaking hands and dissects it down to minute fascinating detail or origin and science. It's super geeky and the host is really charming and funny. It sort of reminds me of Alton Brown's old show "Good Eats" but without the food.

I like how it forces you to think backwards, a skill every good skeptic (and detective) strives to hone.

A good interview on nature of science and the role of philosophy.

"Are science and religion compatible?"

"Rovelli: Of course yes: you can be great in solving Maxwell’s equations and pray to God in the evening. But there is an unavoidable clash between science and certain religions, especially some forms of Christianity and Islam, those that pretend to be repositories of “absolute Truths.” The problem is not that scientists think they know everything. It is the opposite: scientists know that there are things we simply do not know, and naturally question those who pretend to know."

Crowdfunding is dangerous. Fraud or incompetence?

"The red flags that were present at the start are so numerous and obvious that it almost feels excessive to point them out: Absurdly low budget goal, unrealistic promises, too-good-to-be-true price tag, all from an untested manufacturer."

The power of prayer, a prayer and a buck fifty might get you a cup of coffee but it better be a good prayer.
