Recommended Post

RMJ has an excellent post up commenting on two articles at Religion Dispatches, Raise Giant Mushrooms In Your Cellar!.    The first is about a comparison of 19th century Lyceum type lectures with the dumbed-down version of those which are the stock and trade of TED Talks, inc.  For anyone who is feeling smug about how much smarter we are these days.

The second is about another in the endless series of bogus soc-sci studies showing how awful religious folk are as compared to those paragons of all virtue, the non-religious.  Well, that's an exaggeration, perhaps, but its what it will, no doubt, be if it gets the buzz its authors obviously hope it will.
