Enlightning Bolts – 03.08.2010

There’s a new podcast and it’s for skeptical parents! I’m not a skeptical parent (yet) but it’s still an interesting podcast: The Podcast Beyond Belief.

One of many sad examples of where failure to immunize kills. On the positive side of things, 85 million African kids will be getting the polio vaccine.

Ouch! The psychic Oscar predictions I posted the other night only guessed 2 correct out of 10 picks. This non-psychic did much better.

This New York Times article highlights some of the abuses of the Church of Scientology, as described by people who escaped the cult.

One of my favourite shows, Community, and one of the few shows that I can think of featuring a positive atheist character (and a female one to boot!) has been picked up for a second season. Watch their reaction to the news here.

Neil deGrasse Tyson talks about how lame hollywood aliens are. Except for the Blob. That one is A-O-K.

Psychic Oscar Predictions

I love it when psychics make verifiable claims, don’t you?

Their proven track record for accurate predications for those in the public eye has PsychicSource, the nation’s oldest and most respected psychic network in high demand this Oscar season, as people from Hollywood to Manhattan want to know who will walk away with the coveted Academy Awards on March 7. However, Psychic Source’s predictions are as much about credibility as they are the fun of knowing the winners — and major upsets — ahead of time.

Wow, they sure are confident! If they get them all right this year then I’ll probably be putting some money down on their predictions for next year. Lets see who they say will win…

In the Best Picture category they pick Inglorious Basterds. I haven’t seen it but personally I think Precious or that crapfest Avatar will win. I hope Up or District 9 wins.

For Best Actor they chose Morgan Freeman in Invictus. Seems likely.

They predict Precious star Gabourey Sidibe for Best Actress, I wouldn’t be surprised…everone loves the noob!

Here are the rest of their predictions:

Best Supporting Actor
Woody Harrelson, “The Messenger”

Best Supporting Actress
Mo’Nique, “Precious”

Best Director
Quentin Tarantino, “Inglourious Basterds”

Best Original Screenplay
Quentin Tarantino, “Inglourious Basterds”

Best Adapted Screenplay
Geoffrey Fletcher, “Precious”

Music, Best Original Score
James Horner, “Avatar”

Music, Best Original Song
Take It All, from the movie “Nine” (Music and Lyric by Maury Yeston)

They also predict that Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will do so well that they’re asked to come back next year…I sure hope so!

I’ll post Psychic Source’s hits and misses after the show on Sunday, see you then!
