COVID Facts and Fiction With Dr. Peter Makary

"Does it irritate you, doctor baker, when you see on mainstream media and we watch you on Fox all the time and you're such a breath of fresh air, sir, you speak the truth. But then I turn on the network news quote unquote, and they'll say, overcome the spiking, it's like it's since they sensationalize and politicize this virus. I mean, and as being a position as a student as you are, doctor mccarry, that's got to irritate you. Well, misinformation is very frustrating. And one of the little known secrets is that a lot of us who are physicians who have a big profile on television know each other and as a matter of fact, many of us are friends, even though we may say totally different things, there are some doctors that still believe in civility. And I talk to these doctors and we have disagreements, but in a polite fashion. And I tell them, why are we making it sound like the people dying today are dying from Akron when we know deaths lag two three four weeks? And these are people who had delta in the past. And yet you still hear these predictions that sort of fear. Remember when the South African doctors told us when they first discovered a this is far more mild, do not panic. Why didn't we have that from our medical leaders in our doctors that go on the airways? Amen, I have no idea. And it was so frustrating. And now we are at the end of I don't want to jinx anything Doc. And again, I say I never give medical advice over the air, and we know you don't either. So we always like to check with your doctor. We always say, but aron is just as diminishing to a point now where this pandemic may God help us all be over. Doctor mccary? Yes, I mean, one of the great pieces of news that people don't realize is that on the current infection gives you immunity to delta the more dangerous previous version. And it's displacing delta. And it's almost everybody's getting it. So I mean this is information that is significant in that you notice that the numbers right now in the United States. They are diving in the states that got hit earliest with a

Dr. Steven Quay: The Silver Lining of Omicron Is That It's More Contagious but Less Lethal

"Doctor Akron It appears from the early data and I understand science evolves all the time I actually believe in the scientific method But it appears from the early data that aron may be less lethal although probably as contagious if not more those variables aren't necessarily correlated one to one there Is this potentially Is there a silver lining here in that you can catch this virus now You may have a lesser chance of dying than say other more lethal variants and you'll develop a sense of natural immunity and can not possibly be the first kind of breach into some sense of herd immunity where we can finally just start to live with this thing and not panic about every new variant Dan if you want a career in science call me up because that's exactly the summary of this particular virus It's amazingly infectious So it is now the number one virus in terms of the number of people you can in fact these will used to be the number one with about ten people per infective person But I mean I call it the sneeze heard around the world because it is so contagious that you can literally fill a room with a sneeze of it and in fact everybody restaurant in Norway where I believe one person dined before Christmas and there were a 170 cases from that one person in a Christmas party going on there But the absolute also good news is this virus really likes to live in the nose the back of the throat and it goes about four times faster than delta in that space It does not like the deep lungs where pneumonia where it gets into your bloodstream where the real bad acting is So it is absolutely a silver lining I think that this probably everyone may get this given where we are in terms of it being winter you're indoors a little more and it is so

Dr. Steven Quay: We Don't Know Why Omicron Doesn't Do Well in the Lungs

"So doctor from your medical perspective I mean it seems fairly obvious that if you were given a preference I mean you don't want either But to have an infection that's upper respiratory in the nasal passageways And in the sinuses or the lungs you clearly want something in the nose kind of like a cold You get the runny nose you rub your nose you get sinus infections but it was what you're saying when it penetrates into the deep lung tissue This is where we start developing the severe complications The respiratory stuff the inflammation and potentially sadly death is that accurate Yeah that's exactly accurate But we now know that armagon doesn't do very well in that space So why is that if you don't mind me asking Sorry to interrupt but why is that Why is it that aron in contrast to delta in the original alpha variant doesn't do as well Thankfully in the lungs Is it ace receptors I mean what exactly is that Well we don't know That is that is a cutting edge question to ask There's a gradient with more ace twos in the upper airways and fewer down in the lower airways So it may be related to that group that natural gradient but the data you have doesn't jump out and say that's the reason We have the observation that's four times faster than delta in the nose about one tenth as fast in the deep loans not quite ready for a mechanism yet But that's where science interests right on that

Cleveland Browns, Nfl Sees High Number of COVID Cases

"The number one story in the world is a crime. And the good news remember my four square box. Every virus variant is either more or less transmissible than delta. And it's either deadlier or less deadly than delta. It turns out aron is far more transmissible. That doggone thing is moving fast. And a lot of people are getting in and half the browns have got it. Like 8 browns one on the COVID list. They should not play that game, by the way. They should cancel the NFL games where teams can not play because that's not the product we're paying season ticket prices for. That's a product where three members of your offensive line are out and the browns. Baker Mayfield could get killed, and he should sue the league if that's the case. I mean, I love backups for one player to play. And the browns have the best offensive line coordinator in the world and Bill Callahan. It's the fans key is unflappable. He'll put together a plan. But I mean, 8 players together COVID. So it's going everywhere. The browns are looking around and saying, did you guys not get your booster shot? You know, you got to get your booster shot. They're playing in the season. They're 95% vaccinated. They're not scoff laws. I don't know what Kevin and I are Irving ever ended up Kyrie Irving ever updated. But let me try that one. I don't know what Kyrie Irving ever ended up doing. How's that? But it doesn't matter. This virus is going to break out. People are going to get it. I'm flying on an airplane today. I'll have a mask on. If I get it, I'll be fine because I've had two vaccines and a booster and I'll be out for two days. That's really what it's not a problem. It's the original deal. It's a bad deal if you're not vaccinated. I mean, it's a very rolling with the dice. Run out and get your vaccination quickly if you're not, because it's going to be a punishing way, according to the CDC, come January.

"You know, and that speaks to how the specific ancient gods have influenced so much of what we do, the Christians talk about Monday through Sunday, not realizing even the days of the week. Our named after the ancient ones. Yep. Of course, Saturn, Saturday is named after a different God and the moon and the sun are in there. Also for Sunday and Monday, but then the remaining gods tier wotan for freya. Those are your days of the week. Yeah, I mean, march is named after the Mars the God of War. I mean, et cetera, et cetera, we see these ancient gods, the polytheistic gods in many cases influencing modern culture, which brings us back to the upcoming Christmas holiday, paganism all over the place, whether it's the exchange of gifts or much of the music that's enjoyed the mistletoe, the magical plant at the druids. I mean, that's a whole other broadcast. Any favorite TV show that I've ever seen has includes a conversation between Odin and eostra. Easter and they're talking about how both of them have been incorporated into holidays. Odin has become literally Santa Claus. And Easter, of course, while she says that the she's still being worshiped, Odin correct services, but nobody's worshiping you. They're calling out your name, but they don't know what it means. He was always a conversation when I was a believer about whether or not you tell your kids about Santa Claus because one day, when they realized there is no Santa Claus when you break that news, they won't trust you when it comes to Jesus. That was an interesting conversation. I can tell you exactly that that was exactly what it was. The only time I ever had faith in the sense that I see other people trying to act to apply it where you try to force yourself to believe, I did that when I was 8 years old, nobody at 8 years old still believed in Santa Claus, but my dad said there was a Santa Claus line. I didn't realize he was saying that because I still had a younger brother who was still believing that or that somebody was supposed to believe that. But my dad tells me there's a Santa Claus, my dad wouldn't lie to me. So I had this love and admiration for my father that drove my forced belief. I tried to force myself to believe that Santa Claus is true. And when another child was making fun of me and I think it was when I step brother at the time, that was the week that was the younger when the 7 year old, he's making it because he doesn't believe in Santa Claus anymore. And he's making fun of me at 8 because I still do and I said, well, I know it sounds ridiculous, but there has to be a Santa Claus because my dad said there's a Santa Claus. My dad wouldn't lie to me. Would you dad? And my dad's answer was devastating. There's no Santa Claus, son. Yeah, after sucking your breath back from the gut punch, like a minute later, I asked, what about Jesus? And then my stepmom was also in the car, she goes, oh, he's real. And my reaction to that was uh huh, sure. Yeah. They pulled the rug out from underneath you. As we draw the conversation to a close, what are you working on now besides slogging through the Quran? Are you still working on the phylogeny explorer stuff? Are we doing more creationist debunking what's on your plate these days, brother? Well, I've been working on a different series for dealing with an organization called genesis apologetics. Where they make a bunch of materials trying to undermine science education teaching creationism both to elementary school and the other series to teach us that teaches creationism to high school and then some apologetics for college students and I'm sorry I'm addressing those and I'm starting with the elementary school stuff. And I'm having an awful lot of fun with that as well. Are they calling it creationism or is it an ID thing, you know? Intelligent design. They call it, they say the genesis apologetics, they're name and they're arguing that God's word is true because it's God's word. So it's true. So it's entirely circular, and it expressed in a number of their videos that it's important that you believe this because the belief has benefited not that there's any interest in fact. It's just if you believe this, then you have some benefit that you can also believe this other thing, or that somehow it'll make you a better person if you believe this. Whereas if you believe reality, well, what advantages of is that? What good is it? They have a video explaining this where a child is watching a documentary about evolution and he says, did we come from slimy goo and turn into monkeys? Why would we want to believe that? I'd much rather believe that I'm a child of God. So there's an admission in the video that the belief has nothing to do with that. It's all about what you want to believe. It's all about pretending. So I'm trying to make that more obvious to people who somehow don't see it yet. R and R will include links to your online stuff, your YouTube channel, et cetera in the description box..

"So then they make up the story of adapa and adapa goes and meets the gods. And the person who's leading him to meet the gods warns him that the gods are tricksters and they may try to poison him. So if they offer him any food, you must refuse it. But in this occasion, the gods were being generous and they offered the food of eternal life. But adapa held to his advice and refused to take it and because he refused to take it, then people die. Well, that was taken to be inconsistent, so they take that myth and they blend it with a handful of other myths that I don't want to go into all of the others, but I mean, that story, the Garden of Eden story is made of mythology, different mythologies all from originally polytheistic religions. But it becomes the tale that they tell for why they have morality. They had the choice of, you know, you can eat of the fruit of the tree of life and remain as you are, like the animals for all time. Or you can eat at the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And you will become like unto the gods. You will have wisdom. And so this harks back to the forbidden knowledge in Greek mythology where they weren't supposed to have fire. And then somebody gives them fire. I think it was Prometheus that gave fire. He gave the forbidden knowledge. And now these people are not just animals, they are like unto the gods because they have the knowledge of gods. And so Prometheus had to be crucified on a rock for 10,000 years for having given forbidden knowledge to people. Same story, essentially, just a different take on it. And so the Bible was not supposed to be read with this absolutely literal tape to it, but after centuries of telling these stories people had adopted that perspective on it. And then when science started showing this up, like the other caller earlier said, when Christian geologists were trying to find evidence of the flood, and they were finding evidence of something else instead and when careless linnaeus a Christian started classifying all life forms and he didn't see created kinds instead. He saw a familiar family tree hierarchy. It's when they started investigating and realizing that no, these stories can't be true, that's when the believers dug their heels in and became biblical literalists. I'm interested in the kind of my God can beat up your God, religion. And the metamorphosizing of polytheism into monotheism, right? Because we used to have the God of the harvest, the God of agriculture, the sun God, the moon God. The God of War, the God of love, or the goddess of love. And then Christianity comes along and they're like, oh yeah, well, our God is. All of the above, we are the God of the harvest God of War God of love, et cetera. And it was a way for us to go ahead, please go ahead. Oh, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt, but I remember reading that yahweh in the beginning was very much the God of War. And I guess he kind of morphed into these other all encompassing ideas about what a God should be, but as you both know, I mean, the Old Testament is just full of war and murder and just it's a bloodbath. And so I just wonder if that's where it was the inception and then when you wanted to argue that this is the God of all things, you kind of had to open up the range of emotions and complexities of this cause. Yeah, I changed my last name to raw after I read the stories about amen ra, who was a composite God and I'm in was an air God who was perilously similar to yahweh. Jehovah. At one point. They both had the same wife at one point, whether she was asura or at the rat. And so later incarnations, they kind of eliminate the wife and then the God no longer has a human aspect. He becomes a pure elemental, if you will. So suddenly, Ahmed doesn't have a body anymore. Now he's just purely air. And then he becomes a composite God because they combine him with the sun God. So the air God and the sun God is now combined, and it becomes amen ra. And then when you combine that with the volcano God, which is Jehovah, well now you've got the volcano sun and air went, but that just make up everything now. The sunlight sees us all. We all feel the wind, so we call the wind, the spirit of God because we don't know the difference between spirit and we don't know what area is. So we're going to pretend that air is spirit. And that explains everything. That explains the tornadoes are God that the cloud movement is spiritual and all of that. And why it is that if you don't have the breath of life, then you will die. And now we can make up the Smiths that if we fashion clay figurines if we could just somehow breathe the breath of life into them, then they would come alive. That's the golem spell by which Adam was created. So that they composite all these guys and just kind of like pack them all in together. And then the appropriate other people's religions. So that pan suddenly becomes Satan. I see the utility too of how religions create tribal bonds among non kin. You know, non family, there was great utility in uniting around a specific religious belief tribe culture, dogma, et cetera. And so then that speaks to the political aspect of it, political power, cultural influence, you know, we saw in Rome, right? Christianity became for a time the law of the land. It was a state religion. Weaponized religion to become a political force, and this is you've asked a hugely broad question. It's a fascinating one, but I hope that what arin has said helps to sort of at least answer part of it for you. Oh, definitely. Very informative. And of course, in addition to all the other videos that you both have posted, you definitely answer those questions. But I appreciate the time you took. Thanks for calling. It's a great one. Appreciate you. You too, bye. Chrome would not be pleased with you, arin. Or I heard you want to reference the Conan film. With the conversation. How did that go? The Conan is talking with subutai and subutai, when he says the crime is strong in his mountain, and I will have to go face him and he will ask me the riddle of steel. But then subutai says my God is greater. He is the everlasting sky. I pray to the four winds. Your God lives underneath mine. And then it gets total side eye. Hey, wait a minute. There's a part in the Bible I wish I could remember chapter in verse right now. I can't call it. I hate these senior moments where I can't remember right off the top of my head, but there's a beautiful part in the Bible to references the four wins, which was a pagan deity. That was something that was actually worshiped. And there's a moment where Jehovah were a prophet of God praise to the four wins under the instruction of Jehovah and the four winds now animate an Army of the Dead. So if you had to pick a God, let's say you wanted to be a theist. If there is a God out there, is there a deity somewhere that if you, you know, you admire? There actually is at one point I would have said Krishna, but then when you're reading the bug about Gita completely turned me off to Krishna. I just realized that it was like when I read the Bible and I'm expecting to see divine wisdom and instead of seeing divine wisdom, I see idiocy. So I had to reject Krishna. I'm going to go back to my cultural roots. If I had to pick a God if I was forced into that position that I would be as true. My God would be water and Odin. I see that. There would be a familial similarity if you were a child of Odin, die the hair white, we'd get you some beasts to ride through the sky, perhaps. Odin's a badass..

"Become one with everything. I'm already there. A short break, more with my special guest and dear friend, arin ra, we continue after this. Thank you so much for listening today if you'd like to support this show to give a Christmas gift to the thinking atheist podcast you can become a patron just go to Patreon dot com slash Seth Andrews, continuing my conversation with special guest ahren raw. Let's go back to the phones with your comments and questions for arin. Daniel, Daniel thanks for waiting on me. What's on your mind, my friend? You and I both have the same disadvantage in that. We both have a biblical name. Oh yeah, well. You know, it's weird. It's like walking into a party of atheists and they say, who are you when I say, hezekiah, you know, I just wanted to have weird weird things. I have to say, I became an atheist about three years ago, and I did not know anything about either you or Aaron before I became an atheist, but one of the reasons I became an atheist is I read the Bible. That'll do it. I was reading through the book of genesis regarding the creation and Noah's flood and I figured if there is anything to it, there should be scientific evidence. I went looking for the scientific evidence and I didn't find one single thing kudos to you for. I mean, that's a tough journey to take solo. You know, I think a lot of people, they're prompted in some way. Sounds like yours was an internal journey, and that's amazing, so props to you, man. The fun was much the same problem. Well, I was raised an evangelical younger creationist dominionist. Wow. And at one point I was even a Sevent-day Adventist today while I can not say there is no God. I can say the God I was raised to believe in doesn't exist. Well, I had a similar problem with the Bible. When I was 8, my mother comes in to on my birthday on my 8th birthday, my mom comes in instead of saying happy birthday. She's gonna give me a Bible lesson because her group thought that you don't indoctrinate children until they reach the age of reason, which was 8 years old, so that on my 8th birthday, she comes in to start preaching to me about the Bible. But by then, I already knew what evolution was. I'd already seen cladograms of assort. It already seen dendrograms, really. Showing how old things were related and understood that. So when she tells me that this is the absolute truth, I'm like, my first reaction is, no, it isn't. See what it says here? So I could never believe it like this, but then when I was 12, I tried to read through the Bible and I was told that the Bible is the word of God and that God is love and that God is infinite wisdom. So if I'm reading a book written by a deity of infinite wisdom and love, then I'm going to get I'm going to be dipped into this absolute wisdom except that of course any cracked open a Bible knows that's not in there. The question God is not a God of infinite love. Nor wisdom at all. What's that famous quote? The road to atheism is littered with bibles that have been read, cover to cover. That's a great example. I was raised to believe that anything that when it gets the Bible was automatically false. By definition, well, I'm just sorry, it took me 57 years to get over it. Now, I think the upside is is that you can speak to the culture, your background gives you a unique and very clear window into what we're up against. And most importantly, you liberated your own mind. That's fantastic and that inspires me. So Daniel, I appreciate your call very much. I have to give you props because once I did discover your channels, you gave me a lot of help. And I really love the systematic classification of life series. I also love that episode you did Seth with Christianity, made me talk like an idiot. Oh, yeah. Popular speech that I did a few years ago. Still going strong. Yeah, I still watch that. Thank you. I love it. I appreciate the kind words. All right. Thank you for talking to me. All right, take care. Thank you for talking to me. All right. Daniel up the Bible. My brother in the lord. May you be blessed until we fellowship again, you know, kind of thing. You know, it's funny. I did that speech back in 2017. I thought it was kind of a throwaway, like, you know, I was just something I had. You know, I was venting a little bit. I didn't expect it to catch fire. The way that it has, everybody references it, and you know, I find that interesting. But I didn't see it as nonsensical when I was in the faith. Dear lord bless these mashed potatoes, made perfect sense to me. Lord, thank you, the chemo is working on my friend who has cancer. You know, please guide the hands of the surgeon when God closes a door he opens a window, you know? I pray for traveling mercies when I'm in a car with seatbelts and airbags, right? It just made sense to me. I didn't realize I was talking like an idiot. Yeah, and suddenly, when you get the cancer and you die, well, and it's not. You still hold on to the beliefs that God doesn't give you something you can't handle. What do you think that was? Well, that becomes God wanted you to be with him. So there's always a way to justify whatever without even noticing the contradiction. I've got 6 four 6 I, who's this? Oh hi, sorry, my name is Elena. Hi Seth, hi, Aaron. I love all of the content you both have been creating over the last years and I really appreciate it. Thank you. So I'm an agnostic. I grew up in an evangelical Christian cult. No exaggeration there. And I'm currently in my 20s and I'm just kind of like processing, okay, where do I believe in now that I've separated myself from this cult? And I guess my question is, you know, I'm able to look at the Bible and see that it's a book that a bunch of men wrote, but you know, I do wonder. I guess what was the point of creating the Bible? I understand about their isolated text that spanned for thousands of years and they're from different languages, but I just wonder what was it like I have a question is what wasn't it for the people? What was the point of telling these stories and whether they were true or not, if they weren't true, why would they make them up and I guess what was in it for them? It was cultural tribalism. Every group has their cultural stories and so forth. And so there was adding to their identity. But then it also would use these myths to establish their behaviors, you know, this is what we this is what we believe in, right? This is like the political platform of that tribe. So it expresses all the things that they hold to be true as a unit as a collective as a culture. And so this is how the other other cultures like when they talk about the media and I and so the people who worship bail and the gentiles and the samaritans oh, don't we hate those dogs. It's all part of their cultural identity. And I don't think that the stories were not clearly not written to be literally interpreted. I mean, the people when they put together the genesis Adam and Eve's story, they were adapting elder stories of people that made up like why do people die, right?.

"Yeah, the thing that I get most often is not the agnostics trying not to be atheist it's the people who want to dismiss innocence for being atheist because it's a weird thought to me that you can't have a belief in somebody you've never heard of. So it's like, you know, the thing you just brought up, if you've never heard of that God, then obviously you don't have a belief in that God. Will people say that if you've never had a belief in God, you're not an atheist until someone asks you if you believe and then on the moment you answer no, then you become an atheist. But that's ridiculous because you're just saying that you still don't believe in a God. So you didn't become atheist at that moment. You were atheist already. And a lot of people object to that. And I can't understand why. It's the same idea because I became atheist whenever I watched the Ken ham debate, Bill Kenny and Bill Nye debate. And they did this definitive question, which Bill and I agrees in this book. He said, what would change your mind says, any sort of evidence whereas Ken ham says nothing because I have this book. And right then and there, I believe, I became agnostic. And then that's whenever I found Seth, that's when I found Christopher Hitchens. That's one. I found Erin raw. That's one of I started questioning my beliefs in the first place because I did this YouTube video where I cried and said, oh, I think I'm agnostic. Since then, I've deleted that video, but it was almost right at that moment where I was like, oh my God, I can't because the whole idea of this book is the only thing that's just thaws like the biggest form of ignorance on the planet and like why do I believe what I believe? Is it just because of this book? I get you. And that was an important moment to the audience question. The question from the audience member that really decided the whole debate. And so that's actually more to take that I'm approaching in the series I'm doing now. I'm doing a series of videos that are challenging these people that make what they call educational materials to indoctrinate and mislead children regarding science. The angle I'm taking on that is while I will explain the facts and so forth and show winter where their information is wrong. I want to make sure that people understand why these people are showing misinformation. And why they don't care if the information that they share is true or not that all of this is trying to enforce belief because they can't question the book. So when the book is wrong, they have to admit that we're not going to admit that we're just going to keep believing it anyway. And so I showed an example with a movie called questioning Darwin, where this guy said, a pastor la ropa, he said that if he found a place in the Bible where the Bible says that two plus two equals 5, that he wouldn't question it. He would believe it. And prior to that, William Jennings Bryan, who was the creationist in the. Monkey trial? Of 1925. Yeah, he made the public announcement that if Jonah, if the Bible said that Jonah swallowed the whale, he would believe it. So these are both admissions. That reason be damned. They're just going to pretend, make believe that the Bible is true. Knowing that it can't be having proof that it can't be. Yeah, but I mean, when I was a believer, you could have brought proof to me and I would have rationalized it away. You know, it's an agent of Satan, all the scientists are in collusion. I would have rejected it as proof. You know, and I would have genuinely still believed I wouldn't have thought it was a lie. Yeah, I get that. I get that, but I have to show that if I'm showing where these people say this, why they say this because they can't allow themselves to accept this fact. And so that's what I want the going on to realize that that's where this is all coming from. I'm going on what you said sesh, also, 'cause when you guys were talking about ghosts and spirituality and stuff like that, because any time someone asked me if I believe in go, so I always say, it's always convenient how whenever the people who see gos are already someone or angels or anything are already people already automatically have a reason to believe it, right? That's always how non fictional beings work, because you already have to believe something in order to see it in the first place. That's a good point. I appreciate the call. Take care of yourself. I appreciate you. You better. Thank you very much. You mentioned the Ken Hamm Bill Nye debate. Ken ham. It always said, I said something and I think I mentioned something about this on a recent show forgive the repetition, but I've got arin, and I want him to weigh in on this, but I got a ban on Facebook because I was speaking about how we are higher primates. We are animals. This is a claim that Ken ham the creationist would reject, right? There were humans and then there were animals kind of thing. And I said, I think it's ironic that creationists who are animals reject the idea that they are animals. Facebook thought I was insulting them and banned me for a week, you know, you dirty animal kind of a thing. But I was similar band. I got a similar band for trying to explain to people that why they are in a what's that about. No, tell me that story. Well, I was trying I was speaking, of course, about taxonomy and anybody that and ape is any member of the taxonomic superfamily hominoidea. But the way that I said it was interpreted by whatever algorithm that I was making a racial slur. I see. So that's the same thing to happen to you. You call somebody an animal and so you're insulting them. And in either case, ecclesiastes three, 18. I think to 21. There, the Bible says you're an animal. I get a look at versa. Of course I don't have the Bible memorized..

"But in the Jewish tradition, a child or the fetus or embryo, whatever they are from the first 45 days from conception, it is considered in the Jewish tradition to be only water. That's it. And then from then until birth, the tradition is that the embryo defeat is is a limb of the mother, specifically referred to as her thigh. So if you read the Bible and say that in her thigh will rot if that's the translation that you have, someone will say fetus and we'll say, hi. But that's what that means. It doesn't mean that one of her legs will fall off. It means that the fetus will be aborted. Lots to unpack here about Christian hypocrisy, Charles does that address your question? Well, he was a state senator from, I think, Georgia, but given the fact that all the people shouting about how the king commanders were the formation of the ten amendments, but when you ask them to name the ten commandments, most of them can't. There's a level of arrogant ignorance and hypocrisy and amazing. Thank you, Charles. R and it's funny. I was reminded of this famous quote by Christopher Hitchens in relation to Christian hypocrisy. You know the Ted haggard's other people who are pious and pulpit pounding about moralism, et cetera, and then they get caught. And hitch wrote, whenever I hear some big mouth in Washington or the Christian heartland, banging on about the evils of sodomy or whatever. I mentally enter his name in my notebook and contentedly set my watch. Sooner rather than later, he will be discovered down on his weary and well worn old knees in some dreary motel or latrine with an expired Visa card having tried to pay well over the odds to be peed upon by some Apache transvestite. Oh my God. Yeah, and there was another one that was one of those, it's funny how they have these organizations with the word family and it's a religiously motivated any organization with the word family in it is somehow means anti gay and anti abortion and all of this. But these people are often caught in compromising situations like one was one was cut in a van. He's having sex with a man in a van outside of his church. If you're outside the door, you're in the parking lot, perhaps it's less sinful, you know, you're not in the actual house. Of God. Let's take a look at the neighborhood. Abrahamic religions have against sex. That. Strange aversion perversion, whatever you want to call it. I just feel like fundy religions, if they control your sexuality, they've got you. They put your whole life and so that kind of shaming and blaming and control and the narrow edicts and whatnot. But I feel like this repression culture, you know, it just breeds hypocrisy. It's like the priest in the Catholic Church. You know, they're supposed to be celibate and pure and all this. I mean, you got to be shitting me. You know, there may be a few who lived against their nature, but we see this repression culture than it results in really aberrant and often tremendously harmful behavior. Area code 9 one zero high, who's this? That is Josh. Thanks for calling. You're on with Aaron Rodgers. What do you have for us? So my idea is that atheism and agnosticism are more synonymous than not and there's a lot of people who claim that they're purely agnostics, but I do not believe that's actually the case because when someone asks, do you believe in the God and someone says I don't know, they're not answering the question. So whenever you say, do you believe it's a yes or no, so if you don't have a positive belief into something, then you not believe in it. And I feel like the reason why this is an important distinction and why you should argue this definition is because of how atheists are seeing in society and that they can have necessarily hide behind just another word or anything and that we need to normalize atheism as much as possible. There's a kind of worms. Let's get into the atheism versus agnosticism. What is your take? Of course, the agnosticism addresses something else. I mean, there can be agnostic theists I've met them. Who say that they have no knowledge of God, they admit that there can be an ideology. That's not a denial. I didn't mean to say that I also don't believe that. I was just trying to be a quick for the broadcast. You're fine. No, I get you. I'm just saying that there are agnostic theists that people who understand that they believe in a God, but they can't know what kind of God that is. It goes to the old adage of all the blind men who are trying to describe what an elephant is, and each one has a different part of the elephant in their hand. The ear, the tail, the trunk would have a tusk, whatever. So everybody has a different impression. Now, if you have that position, that's like agnostic theism. You have a belief that there is a God, but you don't know what that God is. And that other people who have a belief that there is a God and they insist that they know things that they can't know about it because as I said, faith is all about pretending to know what you don't know. But when you are agnostic. Most often, you don't have a belief that there is a God. As is, it's a different concept. It's always acknowledged versus belief. A lot of people don't make that distinction. Your canine in the background is co hosting the show. I just wanted to jump in there. But I mean, if I don't know, how can I truly believe? Well, it's unrelated questions. So if I ask if I ask somebody who's going to win the election. I'm asking them to make a casual sort of a bet. What we're to tell me what their estimation is. Who do you think is most likely to win is what I'm asking the question? And if they answered, they don't know, well, I'm not asking you whether you know nobody knows what do you believe? That's exactly what I meant. And the R and yes, I do believe that there can be also agnostic theists. But to me, I do not believe there can be someone who is purely agnostic. If I said, do you believe in the japa or whatever? Word that I made up. Before you didn't believe in that. So you do not have a positive belief in the air goal you don't believe in it. So in my opinion, you can not be a purely agnostic. And again, the reason why I believe why we should argue how many tell feathers are in a angel or whatever they say in terms of these definitions is because of how atheists are seeing society and how that we should more normalize the term atheism..

"And so I held that for a bit. And eventually, of course, you know, I go back to I go back to college as a science student, so I'm now. I remember like a second level biology for science majors and I realized that there's no room for the animating spirit. When you get into exactly how ATP moves how to synapses work and all of this and you're like, there's no soul. There's no need of one. There's no spirit animating the material form. There's just none of that. It's not necessary. It's superfluous. It's an addition that makes no sense. I remember back when the great scientist Stephen Jay Gould said that science and religion are non overlapping magisteria. And that's always a point of contention. I disagree. How can religion and science coexist? A theistic or even a deistic religion and science coexist. I totally disagree. I held that there had to be up to if both existed and I believe being. I mean, I thought that the balls existed for the longest time. There was there had to be some way to reconcile one with the other. And eventually I just realized that when people were telling me that God, for example, was a conclusively proven scientific fact and eventually I find out that he isn't. There's not even a reason to believe in God. So what do you lying to me about? And that's what all religion is. Religion is make believe. Faith is make believe. It's all about believing things because you want to. You know, it's literally make believe. And so that makes gaudy magic imaginary friend. And that's why I met people in my neo pagan ventures. I met people who were Hindu who were who held to a number of the pagan religions. And I remember that George Harrison was once a big Beatles fan. He had made this public statement that he had personally met his God Krishna. And that Krishna, when you chance the mantras, the Krishna would appear and that he George Harrison of The Beatles the basis to excuse me guitarist for The Beatles. He would be able to have two way conversations audibly with his visible, visible God right there in the room with him. Now, Christians would talk about their personal relationship with Jesus? Well, how's it possible that George Harrison is having this personal relationship with this what they call false God. And it's a better relationship than Christians have with their God. And then met this other guy who still lives only a couple of miles from my house and he worships the Egyptian cat headed goddess best. And the reason he worships her is because she appeared to him physically manifest. She manifested her in his house, physical, material, she embraced him. She spoke to him audibly and she made that he be her disciple. Which is something most gods don't go out of their way to actually show up. You know, I voted for a politician once because she showed up at my door. Now that's the way you adopted a God too. God shows up and talks to you directly, okay. It's just not a God. I'm used to hearing about in everyday conversation. I've heard of the big two, actually, but I've got a few people on the switchboard who want to talk, let's see. I've got Charles. Charles are you with me on the show? Yes, I am. What do you have for my special guest? It's author activist and friend Aaron raw. What do you think? I know the wedge document and I also know of the book, the power worshipers. How do these clean cut sincere and devout believers deal when one of their leadership does something like have a mistress and a wife and he decides that they need to have abortions when the one of the key things is abortion is evil? I mean, he claims that Jesus has forgiven him so everything's copacetic. Do you have a specific person in mind? I'm trying to think of an example. I haven't heard, I mean, we've seen lots of people. Okay, go ahead, Aaron, what are we talking about? Yeah. I don't remember the guy's name either, but I've heard the story. There was like a senator or something new who was actively advocating against abortion. He's trying to criminalize abortion. He's trying to overthrow row. But when his mistress got pregnant, he tried to get her to get an abortion. He tried to force her to have an abortion. So that his wife wouldn't find out. And then, of course, everybody finds out. Which is funny. But that's two levels of hypocrisy because one you're trying to enforce for everybody else. You want small government you say. So I guess it's three levels of hypocrisy. You want small government, but you want that government to invade what everybody does in their private life. You want government to mandate the way people act and what they believe and what they do in the bedroom. That's how small you want your government to be so small that envelops everything. And then the other thing is that the Bible doesn't speak against abortion. As a matter of fact, it endorses abortion for the most trivial of reasons. In number 5, it is explained that if a husband is suspicious that his wife may have cheated on him, like he goes away on a trip somewhere and comes back and she's pregnant when she shouldn't have been pregnant. Well, then, is it his kid? He may think not. Trying to put together on the calendar. Could this be my kid? I don't think it is. Go to the priest. And the priest will force her to have an abortion. He B forces her to drink this potion, and if the fetus falls away in rots and she will be left barren, then she cheated on him. But if the feed is somehow survives, drinking the potion, then it's his. And all of this is Jake bordering on witchcraft and idiocy and all of this. But that's what it says in numbers. Very clearly. And there are other places in the Bible where it talks about how to kill the child in the womb. And in the talmud also specifically justifies partial birth abortions if the mother is likely to die because the mother has priority over the child. So this was the Jewish tradition of people who wrote this prioritized the living mother over the youth. They say that the child doesn't have an equal right to life until they've taken the first breath and are infused with the spirit because of course, what do the original idea of what are the soul came from or the spirit came from? Was that people didn't know what air was, but they knew that you would die if you couldn't breathe the breath of life. So that's what they thought spirit was air. And so when a child takes us for breath, then it has equal right to life..

"Just human opinion to talk upon human opinion and all declared to be God's word. How much of it is just repetition, you know? God is great. Greatest God. Akbar over and over, right? Tells you that the unbelievers are going to go to hell. Every sort of it opens with believes the Quran or you're going to go to hell. And every sort of thereafter says the same thing. And it's so redundant. This is supposed to be God's measures. This is the guy who created the cosmos, livity Gillian galaxies, but what his concern is is whether the people of one Arabic city fight the people of another Arabic city over their beliefs. It's ridiculous. This was true back when I was in radio. We used to do top and bottom of the hour newscasts. And we always joke that you could start almost every newscast with trouble in the Middle East, right? And it was always over land and divine right. God gave us this region. It's a matter of mind destiny, right? I remember being a little kid being at my grandmother's house. And watching the news and realizing that it's always the same news story. You know, it's something happened on the West Bank. It's always, it's always the Jews versus the versus the Muslims versus the Christians. And all of history is reflecting the same thing because when I was a little kid when I was somewhere between 8 and 11 years old, I knew that there were like the holy wars and the inquisition and all I guess. So there's the Christians hate the Muslims and the Muslims and the Jews and all of this. And I'm like, okay, so remember thinking this, by 11, I realized that each of these Abrahamic faiths have been at war with each other since their inception. And they're all declaring that their God is the God of peace. Speaking of war have you engaged in the war on Christmas? You know, because I know you and I are supposedly on the front lines. Now we want to strip every baby Jesus from every nativity and we're in league with Starbucks. Have you discussed this sort of manufactured persecution at all in your circles, the war on Christmas? I definitely lost my Christmas spirit. I remember the last time I put up a Christmas tree it was a relatively small when it wasn't a big deal, Christmas tree that we usually do. So I put up a little two or three foot tall Christmas tree. And I just kind of left it there. And forgot about it. It was in a room that I don't always go into, so I don't pay attention to. So it was up for two years. My Christmas tree. I mean, pagan symbol that you've affronted the Christ. And of course I've spoken. You've spoken quite a bit about all these pagan traditions. This is not a surprise to this audience. You have a background as I recall that you dabble in paganism, orin? I did. I did. Not so much the mythology, the mythology never appealed to me at all. So I'm sorry to say that I don't even know Norse mythology. And you would think that I would, but no, I was able to more of the trends meditation I was into astral projection and that kind of spiritualism I wanted to have direct experience of the paranormal because I wanted to analyze it. I was trying to apply science to mysticism, I and so the only way I thought I could do that was by getting out there and getting out of body and seeing auras and experimenting with chakras and all that kind of crap. Because I was also lit raised in Los Angeles in the 60s. It was a kid in Los Angeles in the 60s. So that kind of tipped the hippie in me a little bit. And then eventually I realized that there just wasn't any reality to any of the other stuff that I thought was real. I thought there was scientific evidence of telekinesis up telepathy. I thought that astral projection was a good way to verify the paranormal, but I could never do it myself and when I would talk to people who insisted that they did, I realized that the stories that are all telling me are conflicting and so I realize nobody's don't ask for projection. They're all pretending. And then I realized the things that I could do. I could make people back in the back when I was doing this. I could make people see here, feel whatever sensation they already believed in and wanted to experience. But I couldn't make them see anything they didn't already want to experience or that they didn't already believe. It's like I said there's no way that a Christian was going to see Krishna and no way that a Hindu was going to see Christ. Straight up confirmation bias. Exactly. And so I realized that it is their confirmation bias, and I'm just feeding into that. I mean, I'm reinforcing whatever it is that they already want to believe. And a moment later, I realized that's what I was doing to myself that I was fooling myself probably more than anybody. And that was when I dropped the all the bullshit. I still believe it was a Supernatural. I still believed that living things had a sort of vital force to them because everybody believes that. Everybody believes in dualism, right? Every philosopher believes that what is essentially vitalism, which was disproved centuries ago, but that's still what most people believe. And so I held that for a bit. And eventually, of course, you know, I go back to I go back to college as a science student, so I'm now. I remember like a second level biology.

"We are following a manifest destiny and we will lose God's protection if people don't believe that the United States is divinely guided. So it doesn't matter what the truth is. It just matters what people believe. They would not teach anything about civil rights. They wouldn't teach slavery. As a matter of fact, one of the Texas textbooks actually got sued because they referred to slaves as immigrant workers. And so that's why somebody said, you know, somebody comes up with the idea of critical race theory because they've systematically removed all references to Native Americans. They had removed all references to Hispanic heroes in the labor movement of all of that all gone. So that it would appear when you read the history books that every important person ever was a white Anglo Saxon Protestant Christian. Except, of course, I love this. And they don't talk about the fact that Columbus was Catholic. He just passed him as Christian. You know, we came off Columbus day and I remember posting something along the lines of if you studied Columbus, he was a monster. He was a hideous guy. And then you see the fingers in the ears. I'm not listening to Columbus day. And I think the same is true for Thanksgiving. I don't know. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Given its history? I do, but in a different way, I think there's value in taking stock in what you have. And so while I'm not thanking a God, obviously. I take a moment to view where we are in one of the things I did with my kids years ago. We're not even all that long ago within the last decade when my kids were still kids. We would have the Thanksgiving dinner and talk about how what it was like to live in this country just 100 years ago. You want to talk about what you've got going for you. Let's go, let's look back at the good old days. The good old days of 100 years earlier than now when children didn't have obligatory schools when they didn't have vaccinations when there was no unions when there were no protections or regulations or restrictions and children worked in factories, 7 days a week. There's no sick time if you're sick, you just lose pay. All of that. And then housing standards and food standards, food regulations and all of that stuff. So if you look at how bad the United States was, just 100 years ago, it's hard not to take a leftist stance because the only reason it's not that bad now. It's because we have regulations of restrictions and there's such requirements and provisions for people and workers and so forth. I am interested you talked about creationism and public schools and Texas and of course throughout the United States. You still engaging creationist and convicted felon Kent hoven. Is that still going? I know you were having some fun with him online at some point. I was having an awful lot of fun because he's just so objectionable. If the nice thing about doing a video with him is that you just let him talk for a minute and he's so cringe that people he was so arrogant and so ignorant and has a weird way of talking that people just hate him right away and I've come in looking like the good guy if I just let him speak for a minute first. He and Matt Powell, of course, post some video and they both reveal their whack and atheist t-shirts. I went online. I'm like, does anyone else feel whacked? Because I don't necessarily feel whacked. I don't know. Did you? So I'm kind of done with him. That series is finished, and I don't see any reason to beat him down anymore. It just becomes you have to realize there are other people that are more relevant than he is that are doing more damage than he is. So I mean, he's doing plenty of damage to himself, you know, he first spousal abuse and tax evasion and when it eventually comes out that he's effectively running a slave camp. You know, he's a cultist. So he has these people living on his side that he's not paying. And he's going to get a comeuppance. So we don't need to worry about him anymore. I'm now focusing on other people that are supposedly that are pouring money into educational materials to mislead students. So that's what I'm focusing on now. I also noticed you're getting into the Quran. I mean, you're posting these little clips. Not little. I mean, they're pretty in depth. I mean, I tried reading the Quran. I thought the Bible was a slog. The Quran is for me, it was almost unreadable. The Quran is so bad that it has to be taken in small bites. The book is so awful in every way that it's the only book that I've ever seen that is so repugnant that it actually makes the Bible look good by comparison. The Quran is just really awful. But what I do with it is I will read a sura or two. Some of the servers are quite short. So I might pack three or four of them if they're some of them are only a paragraph. And so I'll pack just a few of them into a blog post where I might do one because the biggest ones are like 270 versus something like that. So I'll write a I'll write a blog post of my analysis of that syrup. And this is reading not just that, not just the version that I have, but comparing that with other online English translations. And with top Sears and that sort of thing, because the reason that I need to go further than that is because if you were raised in Punjab and you never met a Christian. Now, we would know Muslims, he would know Hindus you would know seeks. And if you got a hold of a Bible, you would have no idea. If you just read the Bible by yourself, you would have no idea that The Serpent in the garden was supposed to be Satan. You would have no idea that Jesus and God were supposed to be the same person. These are just interpretations that Christians have of the Bible that are not in the text at all. And so in order for me to die, I realize that the Quran has to have interpretations like that too. And it does. So the way that I've isolated that is once I post this, I let the panel of people will read it, and then I have a video meeting with them. And so I have a number of Arabic speaking people who were raised in Islam in different parts of the world because my panel really does come from just all over the world. And so we have these conversations where they tell me what the traditional interpretations are. And when you reflect on the hadiths and other things, because the Quran is just a very short book. But it's a lot of Islam is based actually in the hadiths and the hadiths are innumerable. Nobody knows how many there are. And how is that a divine word of God already? So this is just other people mere people's opinion on what the Quran says, but somehow their opinion becomes it's kind of like the talmud, you know, you're no referencing what rabbis opinions are. It's most of the same thing with the crime..

"A buddy of mine, fellow activist, open up the phones in case you had to comment or question for him. Aaron raw. He is, I guess, I'm calling you an educator, I'm calling you an activist. An author certainly as you've got a book version of the foundational falsehoods of creationism. But, you know, you were my first guest on the show back in 2010. And we're doing an audio thing now, so I've got an image of you, a great image of you and your drinking some alcoholic beverage, what is that? Could that be most likely an imperial stout? You're a connoisseur of alcoholic beverages. Or is it just beer? I know you're hardcore when it comes to are you a beer snob or what? I'm a beer snobby. I don't give it up on IPAs and all of that. I pretty much just drink stouts now. I don't even drink beer. What's a stout? I mean, what's the difference? Liquid bread. A stout is usually black and opaque. And the alcohol content is usually a little higher than regular beers. The stuff that I drink is usually 12% to 15% in typically has a whole lot more flavor than regular beer does without the back to there's kind of a reverse flavor that some pilsners have. In fact, I went to the Czech Republic and they were bragging that they invented pilsner and I said, yeah, you might want to keep that to yourself. You are a beer snob. The dogs went off. That's all right. It's totally a byproduct of the COVID age. And the online at home podcasting age, and I've got two dogs that could break out at any moment. So let me ask again, how would you introduce yourself to somebody at a party or at a conference? Who are you, Aaron? My answer is that I used to be real vain and arrogant until I saw what real narcissism looked like. And I'm much more humble now. But I don't feel strong. Go ahead, sell your I mean, what do you do? What is your area of focus? Oh, well, as you said, I mean, educator. Science communicator, I guess, would be a good way to put that. I'm definitely an activist. And the whole thing behind me is not any level of expertise or anything. It's just, it's a passion to do something about it. I saw things going wrong. I needed to do something. When I got started in activism, it was because it was a James Bond moment where these people were bragging to me online that they had already through their coalitions of church, congregations, voting exactly as their ministers had instructed because their ministers were on phone connections with other congregations and all these churches. We're voting together so that they could illegally, of course, physicians, certain judges and senators and other key people at every level of government state and federal. And they were bragging that they had already placed so many judges and senators from the chalcedon institute and other evangelical organizations and then they explained to me what was eventually what was soon thereafter would be revealed as the wedge strategy for how to create what they called a culture war and establish all these people so that they would be eventually there would be a kid spiller versus Dover type trial, which they expected to go the other way. Where, of course, the judges would be a Bush appointed Republican, and they would expect that he's going to be a creationist and we'll vote the way that by his bias in belief rather than according to the facts and they were going to turn this into a theocracy. So I'm talking with dozens of people who were bragging that they were going to overthrow U.S. government and establish a theocracy that enforced levitical law. Well, that's terrifying. That was like a James Bond moment was because the way they were describing it, it was like in all the movies where they think it's too late to do anything about it. I just kind of merchants of doubt thing to establish at theocracy. The first thing they had to do was undermine science. Because they think in terms of the God of the gaps that if you can't explain it or if you think science can't explain it, then that somehow is evidence of magic. Of course I don't call it magic, but that's what it is. I mean, the Supernatural equals the magical. And so if you don't understand science, then that you would take to be evidence of God. If they think if science can't explain the origin of life, for example, that that is somehow proof of God. And that using this ill logic, they would undermine scientific confidence so that everybody would be susceptible to religious belief. And then once everybody was in line with religious believe, now they can enforce the more the stricter Christianity and there was going to be a full on Christian nation. And as I said, they were bragging the group that I was talking about. They were reconstructionists, so and especially scary subgroup where they want to enforce levitical law. If you think Sharia is bad, read leviticus again, and just imagine that being enforced the way Sharia is. You're based in Dallas, Texas. It's a horror show down there. I mean. Yeah, holy shit. I mean, give me some specifics for those who don't live in Texas or maybe even live outside the United States. Some of the challenges in Texas. It's not just that there are politicians here who's primary. When I was running in 2016, the guy I was running against his platform. Was to make sure that the trans people couldn't pee in public restrooms. Devil's the most important thing to him. That and erecting a wall to keep brown people out. And then of course we get our governor and Dan Patrick, who are arguably worse. And they just want to impose their religious prejudice. It's not just about teaching creationism what they do with history with teaching history is actually far worse than their corruption of science. Because they have the virtually eliminated all reference. And this was going back years back. People get angry about critical race theory right now, critical race theory is a reaction to what they were already doing years ago. When they removed from our Texas social sciences textbooks, references to any non white non Christian role models, thurgood Marshall, black lip Supreme Court Justice, out of the books. We are not going to talk about Thomas Jefferson. He promotes ideas we don't like. So we're going to promote Jefferson Davis, the confederate president who used the Bible to argue in favor of slavery. We're going to teach him instead. And so they did.

"I do cross fit for five days a week and The great thing about cross fit is it's also uses all the externalised motivation things that i talked about right. There's group pressure to follow through. There's countdown clocks. So there's challenge in competition You know. I don't mean to generate my motivation. All i got to do is show up. And then i passed the time or more i shop. I don't feel like working out at all and then just but the rest of it is all externalize it just because of the environment it makes me just follow through so sorry slight slight divergence but as far as diet You know the the traditional stuff on adhd urges carbs and sugar tend to screw up our brains so just come to the ride. There tends to either make us. We already have a hard enough time sitting still or focusing. And so if you add in these con- you know massive glycemic swings of sugar and all that stuff is just it makes it even harder so the common stuff there around. Just you know low carb diet you. Follow is low carb. Yeah so. I've been so i've been paleo for a long time but i you actually been experimenting lately with kito and i've been getting really great results like just amazing levels of focus and like no brain fog and yeah just great energy throughout the day. Fat you've been saying like primarily fat or makita on akito you're seventy percent ninety percent fat intake But either way whether you're paleo kito to some extent mentoring i mean you know you just wanna be if you're lower on the carbs.

What are you talking about. he's like. I'm not doing it if you're not all in anyway. Long story short as all in. But which comes back to your point jay. I said i'm not gonna like. I'll just tell you.

So i shared about the twenty one day challenge on my show media to was having another person as a checker. If we're the only person that knows whether or not we follow through. We won't follow through. So dave was my checker. But also the fact that i was publishing on online meant that anyone could technically confirmed that i'd done it and then three is raised the stakes. So i was like. I will allow this if i can so anyway. Dave and i agreed to a monetary penalty that we would always each other. If we missed a day and for me that that raising the stakes made it so that it wasn't just i'm sorry but it was. Oh shit. i actually need to have a consequence if i don't follow through. Wow okay..

Don't speak to that but you've got to take time to recharge your batteries when we can. So I'm all for granted in Vegas and enjoy himself. uh-huh pretty fun talk about what he mentioned as a potential goal next year. And how serious is that going to be looked at. You know it would be a dream to be able to take a legitimate philly over to royal stop. Obviously the coronation would be the primary target target is to go that route Graham has brute from UK course and he's taken a few runners over there With with pretty decent success from assault small sample. So you've had the experience which I think is huge. He knows what it takes to get. Get a horse over there and proper form type of course that could potentially be effective over there So you know. It's it's an enterprise in Bisciste goal for us to be sleeping Royal Scot eight nine months from now But we do. You have a lot of conviction that this is an extraordinary philly. She I this position in the constitution to be able to do it. And if she continues to trade on from to interview of three year old year. It's certainly something that we've got to keep in mind That said you know as you mentioned earlier on. Ah There's not a whole lot. It's discouraging us from thinking jerk possibly as well. So you know with the Kentucky Oaks on the radar. I don't think there's any distance from philly. It's just the moderate weather you know she shows the same type of brilliance on the dirt as she has a turf But we'd be foolish to shut the door on down as well. I was fortunate enough to be associated with team valor as Ah Companies Vice. President during animal development and Graham of course is instrumental in bringing him along and his three-year-old year and he was predominantly turpin synthetic course until The week before the Derby when he took and test drive remnant oval at Churchill downs. You need the twin spires Donald and he worked well and asked to justify it felt that the Kentucky Derby and everybody knows how that ended up so Grandma and Grandpa the direct comparison could be able to make from animal kingdom hopefully sharing so that certainly is on the togas well. These are all lofty ambitions with affiliate certainly warranted us. Being able to think in such a a big way very nice. Well wait and watch watch. Meanwhile and it's funny because the chat also struck door said immediately that is this is a horse that we absolutely absolutely. We'll get the share of dirt tries so sharing and we'll be memorable for all kinds of reasons and we'll look forward and Maryland bred as well and a nice a nice feather for the Maryland bred program and Aaron. Let's talk about Sunday shift. Gears and and Mike Trump better with independence hall in the Nashua. This was a serious group of two year olds. That wasn't getting a lot. What a notice just because of what was happening here and what what for those that haven't seen it? It's the most impressive performance by a two year old old. Maybe anywhere and I I mean people were just stunned and trump better in his what I talked to him about Sunday night right. I typically typically sort of neutral response from Mike when he said Yeah. He's really he's been nice so far. One Oh one buyer of destroying the Nashua and the horses that are gonNA come out of that race. I'm going to go do things talk about getting involved buying in to the source after the first start It's a very interesting story. Yeah so as you know Steve Were constantly on the lookout for what we call blue. Stack prospects horses that have shown some potential on the race track that we I believe could go to levels that Could quit our partners. Not just in the product but in the winter circle in major races across the country tree and we try to identify this talent at a very young stage. Horses career so actually independence hall Ran At Parkson. Seven furlongs maiden special weight about fifteen minutes prior to sharing winning Salima And I was paying attention to the races that day. It was Pennsylvania Derby their hearts and the source caught. My eye was very impressive. Zip winning his debut he won by about four and change. When seven eighths Rosaria? was there that day. He wrote him. tucked in behind a wall of horses. I found the team at the elbow. Turn and powered away and very impressive. Fashion never really being asked to do so and immediately got on the Horn and tried to find my way to have the source might be able to be acquired and and my trump better had just developed a relationship with Mike on another philly that we acquired within the barn. So that was a really important part of the deal and Got On the phone with Mr Roddy. The original owner of the cold and we really seem to have a nice synergy Between the two of US and literally within twenty four hours of the worst crossing the wire we had a we had a deal signed on the dotted line for quick clips to acquire a controlling interest in the cold so That part of it was silky smooth. It was in those things. Have a half to come together. Well In order for a healthy partnership to be formed and we were lucky enough to have the varieties welcomes and and you know when when situation for them where they could save some money and risk off the table and still retained an interest in the coal and shortly thereafter after the fellas over at twin creeks in rainy goodlatte who had been interested in pursuing independence hall as well I came to me that they were all wanting to get involved with the horse. They own constitution still own equity in constitution the sound from the world. We've partnered with them in the past and tastic Down their throat before So it all came together really beautifully. Quite frankly seems I was wanting to much more conservative pile with independence hall. He was entered the Thursday Friday Nashua right in an allowance rates go into one intern mile at Laurel and I was beside myself a maintenance. You popped up racing cancel And yeah the the the mysterious waterman break on the apron by the finish line and I was beside myself. I know you know in situations situations and you've got to watch this. Everything needs to go absolutely perfect. And I thought we were get knocked off course here in conservative spots that we picked which looked picture-perfect at the time to keep him on. A you know a conservative trajectory but an upward trajectory We were knocked off. Course you know jewelry rotem in his debut had committed to go riding at Laurel on a Thursday. He went on the Wednesday night he was saying on the hotel. Poor guy got got washed out literally and He was committed to ride in California on Sunday so he could surround him in the Nashville so we are fortunate to drive the Serbs Services Jose Ortiz. I really didn't want to run them in such a salty race to be honest with you but we had no option option It was a really tough and beep rendition Nashville toughest field. I've seen in years that race and You know we knew we were bringing a loaded gun fight but we just didn't know seasoning wines and you know the the level of competition is up against and what to expect and needless to say the performance she delivered with simply cloth charts. It was Beyond what what we could ever anticipate We knew we had a very good call on our hands going into it. But for him to display that type of brilliance. This was It was it was a blessing and a curse because we wanted to see him. Show the pilot that we thought he had The we didn't know that But he was just gonNA run off the screen the way he did and now that is exciting is that is it makes it a little bit more. Tricky to try to plot out of course moving forward we wouldn't trade this position for anything in the world. That's for sure. Well I can. We'll talk to Mike later in the week but I think back to I think back to a performance of sweet northern. Say that this early early on my vomit in the show and I call them and it was after it might have been after the miracle would and Dan I say bike. You WanNa come on the on the show like to talk to you about Your Derby Horse. He said I don't know if I've got a derby or I think he got a derby horse. Well this this this is not this. One is a little different because this everybody saw this sweet northern state was it at the beginning wasn't as evident immediately but very exciting and people were just just a god. I mean you must have heard from. You must have heard from all all kinds of people. Yeah it was wild. I mean it was certainly the icing on the cake to a dream weekend it. It's funny I was leaving Santa Anita on Sunday may morning Old College Buddy. That I played soccer with had a son playing soccer tournament in Irvine so I wanted to stop on my way back down to get a more and catch up with my buddy and his san play a little soccer and so did that and immediately jim in data there and was done at both see tavern mini-satellite place between center need in Del Mar.. I wanted to watch it on a big screen screen on my phone and I sort of found myself a quiet corner and it was a pretty decent crowd and you know see tavern. That day was it was NFL football and races and all sorts of stuff and they actually had the audio on an entire race book there for the Mashghara and people people were just floor. They believe what they were seeing And needless to say I was excited and strong to say quite a corn on airport Drew Little attention myself and Yeah it was it was wild. The phone started ringing off the hook and mouse course You know the business side of it comes into play and Of course we're honored and flattered to be receiving quite a bit of interest in from some major players the game on the inside of it and Just thrilled for partners to be in this position and to have a Colt with this type of raw ability is this is what we live for and for anybody. That's in the game I hope that At some point in their career they could experience so even attraction of what are guys match experience sharing on Friday and to be associated with the promise. Cold that touch wood has derby aspiration reaching all. Well he's a constitution and of course among the first crop sires constitution has been You know one of the real one of the real talking stallions thus far this this was just remarkable out of a Cape Town mayor to which these Asian Asian on see all that often and bred by Woodford and just an exciting situation. How how much conversation if you had since Sunday with Mike about in about targets in about timing and and how did he come out of it? Well the good part about it is the most important thing is touch what he's come out of it really. Well he's back at Fair Hill Which is ironic? Because sharing on her way there right now said to have really early like her in a court like posting but fair right now is pretty exciting stuff Especially for their local community which is fantastic Frankly Steve We wanted to let the dust settle all day. Yesterday I was traveling. But yes Randy in Steve. Ah Twin Creek. Sorry here in Kentucky. I just landed late last night. So we're GONNA IDLE UP DAY AND LOOT MR variety.

So we're GONNA try to grasp on the summer.
