Garden of Eden [Snake] Oil
(Anyone remember The 1980s: Countdown to Armageddon? Yes, the true believers got upset at us atheists for pooh-poohing that turd as well. We're so mean, not to enable the addictions of others to this claptrap.)

UPDATED: Hey! I've got a solution for John Brown. He needs to employ Uri Geller.
He [Geller] claims that he has accumulated wealth in part by performing dowsing services to find commodities such as oil, gold, and minerals, but that the companies he has worked for are reluctant to admit it. In recent years, he has performed demonstrations such as spoon-bending much less frequently in public.
Yep, a good ole American tall tale, old Geller! He's coming out with a new show.
NBC has announced Phenomenon, a new reality competition series that will follow mentalist Uri Geller and Criss Angel Mindfreak illusionist Criss Angel as they search for "the next great mentalist," will premiere on Wednesday, October 24 at 8PM ET/PT.
Just great. This will keep those twits on The View in ecstasy for weeks.
I keep hearing the argument that "atheism and the idea that science can solve every problem [for the record I don't believe that anything can solve every problem] is an idea from the Seventies!" Well, now a fraud from the Seventies has his own show again, despite being humiliated by Johnny Carson and James Randi. I guess people think that's better, somehow.
