Are We Alone: Conservapedia relativity denialism

arewealonelogoAt SETIcon last week, I talked with Seth Shostak as part of our regular “Brains on Vacation/Skeptic Check” segment of the SETI podcast/radio show “Are We Alone”. The topic this time was Conservapedia – a frothingly antiscience and antireality website – and how it has a grotesquely wrong entry on Einstein’s Relativity (as well as a laughable 29 “counterexamples” to relativity).

The podcast is available on the Are We Alone site, and here’s a direct link to the MP3.
