A Note to Skeptics: It's Time to Go Radical

A Note to Skeptics: It's Time to Go Radical

Anyone who has had the audacity to question mainstream science soon runs afoul, particularly in the blogosphere, of hard-line skeptics. Whether they are simply insistent or outright aggressive, the skeptical viewpoint has long been founded on a simple principle. Reality is what lies before us, in the three-dimensional world "out there" that's verified by the five senses.

Reduce Suffering and Confusion by Staying Focused

Reduce Suffering and Confusion by Staying Focused

I’VE BEEN THINKING

All eyes are on “La La Land” heading into Oscars season. The film received a stunning 14 nominations, tying it for the all-time record.

The Sunday Paper: January 22, 2017

I’ve done a lot of thinking this week.

I’ve thought a lot about what President Trump said and what he could have said. I’ve thought a lot about symbolism, about manners, about civility, about tone, about politics, and about democracy.

Most of all, I’ve thought about my country. I’ve thought about where we are and how we got here. I’ve thought a lot about where we are going.
