The original text from Patreon follows below:
John Sonmez, one of X’s childhood friends, has had an interesting career. He jumped into programming in college, has made himself pretty independently wealthy from his book sales and work that he does. He also has a website and YouTube channel where we come in with today’s episode.
He goes by “Simple Programmer” and the video he made this time was just so terribly and horribly bad in his lack of knowledge in science and skepticism that it honestly hurt some feelings. There is logical fallacy after logical fallacy, calls to creationism, watchmaker arguments, textbook hard agnosticism where someone can’t claim to know anything, and hard solipsism. This is probably the first time we ran out of time doing this segment and had to put off the rest of it until next week.
It runs about 30 minutes and you can tell that the Outcasts got punchy as fuck at the end. It was a long recording night.
