"And what "In-yer-face posturings" are these? Hitchens could be a bit of an asshole, I'll admit, but he never stretched the truth, and neither do the other three. It's all about humility, and admitting that we don't know…"

"Richard Dawkins has almost no effect on U.S. Government policies.  He has even less effect than the average U.S. citizen because he can't even vote here.  The question was whether there were any non-religious fanatics influencing U.S.…"

""Old hat" or not, Chomsky is right : Harris & Hitchens (& Dawkins) are secular fundamentalists of a very fanatical, idealogically-motivated, aggressive kind."

Hi Richard. Your blog in the approval process right now is shy on content. If you didn't want to duplicate the material with attribution, some people feel weird about that and some authors don't like it, you could have up the link like you do, but we would ask for some of your thoughts about it. It could be a short paragraph. We just avoid the links only here. Maybe it's as simple as stating what speaks to you about the article. If you can do that we can get it approved for you. Contact me if I can help!
