Slate has an interesting feature wherein a guy named Robert Wright interviews various prominent thinkers about various big issues like God and science and life and meaning, etc. I particularly liked hearing Freeman Dyson talk about the limits of science (I heard him speak once; he was great), Omid Safi discuss the problem of evil, and Huston Smith musing on quantum weirdness. Also, this guy has a distinct "Dr.Zaius" look to him.

I should perhaps also note that none of the interviewees equate wet shaving with any kind of insight into the meaning of God or the origin of the universe.

I quickly opened up all these links in separate tabs, not expecting that they'd start playing when opened. I was treated to polyphonous godtalk.

Too bad you didn't do that on Pentecost.

Testing 123... This is strange... there are two comments, but the front page only shows 1. I'll submit this and see if it comes up as 2 or 3.
