Insert Title Here.

Hey kiddies.

Caught this via a forward of Butterflies and Wheels update:
Muriel Gray argues that religion is not at all a good thing. Read it here.
Not that I completely agree with this, nor is it the most well written article ever, but I do apreciate some of the sentiments expressed.

If it were widely understood that claims to knowledge require adequate evidence before they can be accepted, there would be no room for pseudoscience. But a kind of Gresham’s Law prevails in popular culture by which bad science drives out good.

I also should clarify some earlier comments. The links between Family First and Hillsong are not official, and depending on who you ask, they are either allies, or enemies. The connection between Family First and Danny Nalliah is however not in dispute. He was most certainly one of their candidates for the Victorian senate. I wonder if they knew what he was really like before accepting him.
