Buddhism and Other Things
PZ's amusing once in a while and does know his Paramecium Studies, but he's a bit of a coward and inconsistent at times, as are many of the neo-athiest gang--Harris, Hitchens, Dawkins, et al (and lets not forget Harris's "torture essay" or that Harris and Hitchens favored the Iraq WAr, and supported BushCo completely until 2006 or so. ). They're not...from the Bertrand Russell school ..ie, philosophically and scientifically informed skepticism--they're from the Carl Sagan bottlewasher school (ie, they can't see Deus in a microscope or telescope--ergo, Deus doesn't exist!).Furthermore, read the neo-A. rants carefully Mu, and you will note while they routinely bash catholics, and the WASP sorts of yokels, muslims at times (at least when the Iraq war was going)--they rarely say much about jewish dogmatists. Pourquoi?? One might speculate. YOu rube, want to toss out Jeezuss? Then a fortiori toss out his ghost-daddy Jehovah (Dawkins said as much somewhere).
