Skepticule 119: Looks like a Christian; Prosopagnosia (Face Blindness); Literally metaphorical; Book review - Why Trust the Bible?; Trump; TTPMO.


Does Paul O look like a Christian?

Paul J talks about the police using the skills of people who are exceptionally good at recognising faces and people suffering from prosopagnosia (face blindness).

Anonymous Steve is literally furious about the Oxford English Dictionary literally redefining the meaning of words like "literally". The three Pauls come up with other words that have changed their meaning.

Paul T continues his layman's critique of Amy Orr-Ewing's book: Why Trust The Bible? Chapter 1: "Isn't it all a matter of interpretation?"

Johno tortures the 3 Pauls by discussing the Donald.

Paul O's TTPMO is The British Humanist Association's on-line ordering system.
Paul T's TTPMO is Transport for London's ability to render customers unconscious.
