There’s a bit of buzz going around about Richard Dawkins’ interview in Salon. His are tough shoes to fill, being the Public Enemy Number 1 of insular, inbred, inebriated bible-belters everywhere. It is refreshing to hear someone speak out against the most harmful meme in history: Religion.
As I have always said, “More turkeys and baby evergreens have been murdered for Christmas than for any other reason.”
A fundamental change is occurring in the evolution of society. I smell it in the wind. People and their ideas don’t die without a fight, and the which the religious and political fundamentalists are attacking their detractors is reminiscent of the desperation of death throes. For some reason Bob Dylan lyrics are echoing in my head:
“A hard rain is gonna fall…”
“The times they are a-changin’…”
But I’m being optimistic again…
