Re: Beyond Belief 2006
My favorite quote so far:
..it is not an exaggeration that something like half of the American population is eagerly anticipating the end of the world. I think it should be rather obvious that this kind of thinking provides people with no basis to make the hard decisions we have to make to create a durable civilizaion for ourselves; to make geopolitical and evironmental and economic policy that has a time horizon of not 50 years but 1000s of years.

Of course, biblical creationists are committed to belief in God's written Word, the Bible, which forbids bearing false witness; --AIG (lest they forget)

Sam Harris believes in reincarnation?!
Did you see the little exchange where Sam Harris was questioned about reincarnation?
He basically dodged the question and made it seem that he was less than fully skeptical that reincarnation is real. While I don't think this invalidates some of the very interesting things he has said throught the talks it did seem to make him appear a bit of a hypocrit.

Re: Beyond Belief 2006
That was a pretty interesting interchange. I thought it was weird that he kept saying, "... the neural computationalists can't explain ...blah blah blah...." almost like it was some kind of weird sect battle and not actually science at all.
So you haven't actually gotten then to the section with Sam Harris talking about reincarnation?

Re: Podcasts - everyone should listen to the SGU
I have listened to about 20 of these podcasts so far and they are excellent. Some great trinkets of science information to be found here.
Percy turned me onto these and seriously, they are probably the most entertaining radio/podcast experience I have had in my life to date. I just finished all the archives (wow what an endeavor). I would certainly recommend starting from the first one though and working your way up because there are some personal surprises that I think would screw you up if you did it backwards.
