Professor Sinclair Davidson asks the ABC two questions:

I have put two requests for information into the ABC:

1. On Q&A guest Lawrence Krauss made the following statement, “You’re more right (sic) likely to be killed by a refrigerator, in the United States, falling on you” in relation to the probability of being killed in a terrorist attack. Can you provide any peer reviewed evidence in support of that statement?

2. On Q&A host Tony Jones makes this claim, “I mean, I suppose, if you’re a young black American, you’re more likely to be killed by policeman”. Can you provide peer review evidence of the factual accuracy of that claim?

I will post their reply [at the Catallaxy Files] if and when they bother to answer.

UPDATE

More denialism:

Women’s website Mamamia, yesterday:

We know who the Manchester suicide bomber is. Mamamia will not be naming him…We do not care about his motivation. We don’t care about his cause. There is nothing worth knowing about why a person would do that.

More heads in the sand … Barrister and refugee activist Julian Burnside on Twitter, yesterday:

The attack is appalling no matter what the motives. We need to worry about extremists of all kinds: Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, whatever.

Brendan O’Neill:

After the terror, the platitudes. And the hashtags. And the candlelit vigils. And they always have the same message: ‘Be unified. Feel love. Don’t give in to hate.’ The banalities roll off the national tongue. Vapidity abounds. A shallow fetishisation of ‘togetherness’ takes the place of any articulation of what we should be together for – and against.

And so it has been after the barbarism in Manchester. In response to the deaths of more than 20 people at an Ariana Grande gig, in response to the massacre of children enjoying pop music, people effectively say: ‘All you need is love.’

The disparity between these horrors and our response to them, between what happened and what we say, is vast. This has to change.
