  1. Warning: Viewing the Nightline face-off atheist smackdown may result in severe, acute Choprawoo syndrome. You may experience extreme frustration, have feelings of overwhelming pretentiousness-induced nausea and have the overwhelming urge to throttle your computer screen. If feelings of quantum-flapdoodle-effected dizziness, or meaningless, postmodern vapidity-instigated vomiting lasts longer than 20 minutes, consult a Dr. Harris immediately and watch this awesome TED presentation by him on rational moral landscapes.

  2. It’s interesting to me that the Nightline article lists 92% believing in God OR universal spirit- makes me wonder how the question was asked. And since they don’t link to the survey, I can’t tell. I’m also curious as to the “vast majority” who believe in an afterlife. Seems like a more telling number for traditional religious beliefs (although I know the opinion on the after life is varied in Judaism).

    Are they including agnostics in the 92%? I’m really curious.

  3. From the chili article, “…grown and eaten in India’s northeast for its taste, as a cure for stomach troubles…”. Yes, it’s used to cure stomach troubles. How, may you ask? Wikipedia tells me the answer: homeopathically.
