Something to ponder
Read not to contradict and confute, not to believe and take for granted, not to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider.
-Sir Francis Bacon
I've thought about the ideas that this article on Slate.com brings up, but I've never seen them laid out like in this three part series, of which the linked-to article is part two. Parts one and three are interesting as well but they didn't make me turn the music off so I could pay attention like part two. Anyway, no time for editorializing, just thought I'd share the article that wins the "most interesting thing I've read today" award.
As an aside, I found the series linked from reddit, so maybe everyone on there isn't a militant Dawkins-worshiping, communist, conspiracy theorist after all. Then again, there was a full moon last night....
