“The story of Elio Motors has been a tumultuous one. This upstart car company has had a tough go of it, with funding, engine and other issues that have caused them to delay their car year after year. But is there some light at the end of the tunnel for Elio?”

Why Strict Religions Succeed…

01) Why Strict Religions Succeed


“Across cultures, religious communities that expect more from their members thrive (or religious communities in which members face greater consequences for leaving). Meanwhile, lenient religious groups struggle to maintain membership. Why is this? Wouldn’t you assume most people would want to join the easiest religion? Recent research suggests that strict religions are sociologically and psychologically predisposed to succeed.”

Adelaide ‘pedo hunter’ Richard Warner avoids jail, gets good behaviour bond…

01) Adelaide ‘pedo hunter’ Richard Warner avoids jail, gets good behaviour bond

“A man who dubbed himself the “Adelaide pedo hunter” has avoided a jail sentence for harassing alleged sex offenders online.

Key points:
• Richard Warner filmed men he had lured online by pretending to be an underage boy

• His lawyer had urged for a conviction not to be recorded against his client

• Warner was convicted and given a good behaviour bond

Magistrate Paul Foley recorded a conviction for the offending and placed Richard Paul Warner, 43, on a $200 good behaviour bond for 12 months.

The Adelaide Magistrates Court heard Warner set up a YouTube channel called “Adelaide pedo hunter” and posted videos of his confrontations with men he had lured online in 2017 while posing as an underage boy.

As part of a plea deal which saw prosecutors withdraw an assault charge, Warner pleaded guilty in November to using a carriage service in a harassing or offensive way.”

Richard says “the public should be the judge”…

…and I heartily agree!…

…But Richard should be careful what he wishes for…

…As a MAP…as a BoyLover…as a Child Lover…as a kind person…and as a pedophile…

I am part of the public

…You want my judgement, Richard?

MAPs should never go anywhere alone…

…That way, when they run into people like Richard…the balance can be re-established…

…After all…people like Richard are virtually never alone…and this is clear, if you watch these sorts of channels.

MAPs should not be out and about, alone.

If Richard assaulted or terrorized someone…he should be in jail…if not prison.

01) Ask An Atheist

02) Direct Download [MP3]

“The Pledge of Allegiance says that America is “one nation under God.” But not everyone feels that way.

Surveys show that most of us profess a belief in a higher power, mostly as Christians. The Pew Research Center says about six percent of Americans identify as agnostic, unable to confirm whether God is real. Four percent identify as atheists, believing that there is no God.

Other assessments suggest those numbers could be much higher. Either way, both groups are growing.

So what does the term “atheist” mean, both to believers and non-believers?

We kicked off our week of audience-selected shows with a chance to ask an atheist.”
