I would like to suggest that we christen "D'Souza Dilemma" a bona fide pathology.

Go to: The smallest signs of retreat

Haven't we seen this sort of argument before? Bunting states, "In common with our highly rationalised culture, Dawkins fails completely to understand how powerful myth is - not in terms of factual, historical truth - but in terms of emotional, spiritual truth. Human beings make and use myths and have always done so; the crucial issue is whether those myths are benign, sustaining or destructive. Dawkins insists on taking the most literal - and least sophisticated - reading of religious myth as factual truth; he calls for "evidence" for belief in his interview on the Today programme today."

But it is EXACTLY the "least sophisticated" religious myth that polls show most Americans believe. We human beings seem to have emormous propensity for believing the most outrageous and least sophisticated nonsense.

Isn't there some remote, obscure place to which we could banish all these religious nutjobs?

Oh, yeah . . . that is Malaysia!

Someone please comment. In your opinion, will this new discovery help explain the rapid appearance of life on earth? It would seem reasonable to me but I'd like a more knowledgeable opinion. Thanks!
