Holy Shit. Faith in humanity, gone.
Instead of simply reporting on the progress Sam Harris has made in the field of neuroscience, the writer of the article spends the majority of the time mocking or ridiculing the science and the person.
The current paper recovers Harris’s identity as a doctoral candidate in neuroscience at UCLA[...]
Recovers his identity? The thinly veiled rhetoric astounds me.
Hell, even the very first sentence is wrong on many levels.
Sam Harris is best known for his barn-burning 2004 attack on religion, The End of Faith, which spent 33 weeks on the New York Times best-seller List.
Barn-burning?? Out of all of the words you could have chosen here, barn-burning seemed appropriate? Attack? WTF.
Time and CNN has officially joined the ranks of the untrusted, religiously-backed news sources like Faux News and NYTimes. Is there actually a news organization out there now that doesn’t permit their reporters to bias an article with their own opinions?
I just found a new video on YouTube (originally saw here).
The video is incredibly moving, and doesn’t even try to push anything onto anyone; simply, open your mind to possibilities. The world is so grand and spectacular; to push a rigid belief structure upon it destroys that beauty. Sadly, though, there are those that will never ever open themselves up to doubt, to question everything. I pity them, but they chose to cage themselves.
On a lighter note, I actually had to trash some comments from advert bots, so apparently my blog is getting out there a little. If only I had something more to write than to just parrot what I see. Isn’t that what everyone else does, though? No. Some people have original ideas. Here’s to hoping that those will come soon…
… I don’t think I can say much about this other than:
What. The. Hell.
