5 thoughts on “Religion and Tolerance

  1. What I took from the conference was the need for a lot more scientific analysis on religion before any real judgments can be made.

    But the highlight of the conference for me was Nick Southwood quoting a Swedish feminist politician as saying “All men are walking dildos”.

    And thats a badass banner image John.

  2. Very cool. It would be even cooler if they would release MP3s of the audio. At least for the talks that are not accompanied to a significant degree by visual aids. I could listen to this stuff while mowing the lawn. Plus, Richard Dawkins’ voice does have a certain hypnotic quality that might have some efficacy as a sleep aid.
