EAT TO LIVE by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. That book and that doctors name have been uttered around this house so many countless times. That book changed the way we eat, the way that we view food, and the way that we view our bodies. Now is he the Guru of Health and Diet? I would argue that he is not and decades (maybe even generations of study) are needed to determine why he is right and why he is wrong.
In this short vignette I open up about the way that I eat and the reasons we do so. I also admit the possibility that the way we eat may not be the optimal diet... but... I argue that we are headed in the right direction.
Take care, have a happy new year, and if you have questions about the Eat To Live diet, my wife and I would be glad to respond.
I discovered Lee Camp on the aggregator site, Knowledge is Asking the Right Questions, and for a few months I caught his videos when they were posted. His videos were aptly titled 'A Moment of Clarity' because of the fact that he shreds apart the Logical Fallacies so evident in politics and the media nowadays. Comedians like Lee Camp (and to an even greater extent, Jon Stewart) are rightly raising their eyebrows at the rhetoric being pumped out of the Big Brother speakers.
Lee Camp on Fox News 'A Festival of Ignorance'
Another vignette that was recorded as I was driving down the road. I announce that I will be interviewing comedian Lee Camp who is morally responsible for the excellent YouTube video series 'The Moment of Clarity'. I discovered his work through some postings on the aggregator site. Knowledge is Asking the Right Questions.
Just me and my Iphone App, recording a vignette as I sit in my office.
The argument I am making, "The Tea Party is Based on False Premise", is one that I make often to people who associate themselves with the Tea Party. Needless to say, I don't get invited back to Tea Party parties.
The song I chose for close out the show is 'The Debtor' by Miles Benjamin Anthony. His entire album is great but this song in particular stands out above the rest.
Dr. Michael Labossiere joins me in a discussion concerning Logical Fallacies. For the unintiated Logical Fallacies are, roughly speaking, an error in reasoning.
My interest in this topic came from a passing comment made by a guest on another podcast I was listening to, he mentioned that logical fallacies are ever-present in commercials. This piqued my curiosity and I explored the topic further including Richard Gula's excellent book 'Nonsense: A Handbook for Logical Fallacies'.
I then sought after a guest that could come onto my show and illustrate the logical fallacies that we most commonly come across; ad hominum, appeal to emotion, appeal to the crowd, the fallacy of confidence, etc.. My search led me to Dr. Michael Labossiere, professor of Philosophy at Florida A & M and also author of two book on logical fallacies; '42 Logical Fallacies' and '30 More Fallacies'.
