Atheism, Culture, scripture

Online Reading (October 2008)

(sorry for the long Hiatus, I think I’m back, now…)

Rationality: An opinion piece from the WSJ collates evidence that evangelical Christianity may be less likely to lead to pseudoscience than is a lack of religious affliliation.

Private Health Care: The local paper tells me that private health care is bad (seeminly acting as the mouthpiece for a pro-public health care group).

Religious Violence: anti-Christian violence continues for week 5 in Orissa, India. Hindus continue to blame Dalit Christians for killing a controversial swami while the (definitely not Christian) Maoists continue to claim responsibility.

Politics: Apparently, an increase in Saturday Night Live’s ratings has something to do with making fun of Sarah Palin (though the story doesn’t really explain the headline), and this is news at the CBC.
