The author of the blog “Blue Hydra” quoted a 2-year-old post of mine, and it made me realize how much I’ve changed even in that short span of time. Two years ago, I had a much more tolerant view of religion in our society. Then I read Sam Harris’s “The End of Faith,” and Carl Sagan’s “The Varieties of Scientific Experience,” and Carl Sagan’s “The Demon-Haunted World,” and “Descarte’s Bones” by Russell Shorto. I’ve also started reading “The Skeptic,” (Michael Shermer’s magazine). Another resource was Bill Maher’s film, “Religulous.”
Sorry Blue Hydra! I now disagree with my earlier statements.
