Read Richard’s current thoughts about transhumanism and related fringe topics here.
While those who pray and give glory to imaginary creatures make me angry and ruin my day, the slow, tedious, but incredibly effective march of science and technology makes my day while reminding me that not all of the world is silly. Scientists work so hard over many years and decades, leading to brilliant breakthroughs that provide relief from suffering religion can only fantasize about. While some people pack churches and waste their time praying, scientists act, and through their action create results.
The person that benefits from science yet faithfully commits to an imaginary deity is not only a hypocrite but also a monster.
