Quote of the day

'Facts and opinions, once they are used “scientifically” to support the irrational, become interchangeable. Reality is no longer based on the gathering of facts and evidence. It is based on ideology. Facts are altered. Lies become true. Hannah Arendt called it “nihilistic relativism,” although a better phrase might be collective insanity.' - Chris Hedges

Look, dude, how do you not get this? I'm not going to let you copy and paste the same mindless, off topic and incoherent rants addressed to bloggers and figures who aren't me. Your posts are going to be deleted. Comment moderation is going to be enabled.

I really have to scratch my head at the mindset of someone who feels entitled to hijack someone else's blog.

Go start your own blog and post the same stupid message as many times as you like.

Yeah, once was amusing, if in a slightly depressing way. Twice gave me the impression that somebody isn't getting the supervision they need. After that, it becomes repeating the same pointless action time after time and expecting a good result, and we know where that comes from.

Back to the subject of your post: did you by any chance happen to catch "Through the Wormhole" with Morgan Freeman? I was turned off by the theme that it seemed to want to somehow give religion some kind of basis in science and gave it a miss -- rationality in defense of irrationality.

I tuned it in a bit, to see some religion being spouted and promptly switched the channel, but I'm curious if it had any redeeming segments.

Nope, this is the first time I've even heard about that program.
