Heathens: Genesis - what was the start of it all?
In the beginning, people created explanations for life because they knew nothing about the universe. Somehow, those explanations ended up being codified and written down in a book format, and despite having ample scientific evidence to contradict those original idiotic ideas, millions of people still believe them to be true today. We attempt to make fun of Genesis and the 6 days of creation - because what the hell else could you do with such ignorance?
Also in this podcast, today is the anniversary of the first 400 kiloton Soviet hydrogen bomb detonation. An Arkansas preacher, whose sermons frequently included chastising homosexuality, gets busted for propositioning who he thought was a 14 year old boy online - turned out to be a police officer. What a guy.
Also, today, NASA, put into space the first ever made solar probe, designed to kiss the face of our home star and we are just giddy over the prospect of being able to learn things about the sun from a mere 4 million miles of distance.
