An Interview with Alexa

Continuing our experimentation with Facebook Live, we broadcasted today from Discovery Institute offices with an interview with Nate Jacobson’s Alexa device, an Echo Dot from Amazon. Yes, I know everyone else is doing this, but I think the answers dispensed by the device about intelligent design, Discovery Institute, and Stephen Meyer are as false and biased as on any other subject, and more so. We also questioned Alexa about erased notable paleontologist Günter Bechly. Guess what we learned?

By the way, that is our producer’s featured footwear at the end. Yes, we’re still learning how to do this.
