Default Re: Horgan's Strange Morality

Well said, Eric. I think the whole point of good science is getting at some sort of an understanding of the natural world - whether we LIKE what that understanding is or not. The great thing is that we have evolved minds that can overcome some aspects of our biology. Enjoy that fact and don't get hung up on the "bad news" about your genes!

I think you can see this aspect of John's "morality" in a number of comments he makes. It's very clear whenever he talks about people like Murray Gell-Mann or Richard Dawkins. I could not possibly care less how arrogant some of these guys are. What does that have to do with WHAT they are saying? They are either right, or wrong. If they are wrong (or you think they are) then deal with that aspect of them and not how like-able you find them.
