Hyvää lukemista

Edellisessä postauksessa luovasti tulkitulla David Sloan Wilsonilla on oma bloginsa, jota kannattaa lukea. Yksi sitaatti:

The new atheists hate religion for causing between-group conflict and especially for its wanton disregard of the canons of rational thought. Yet, both of these problems extend far more widely than religion. Between-group conflict pervades the animal world. Ant colonies, lion prides, and chimp troops don't have religion, but they do have between-group conflict. As for the canons of rational thought, to the extent that brains evolved by natural selection, their main purpose is to cause organisms to behave adaptively in the real world--not to directly represent the real world.
