Doubt and fear . . .



  1. What is striking in Feynman's talking here is that as a scientist, he has a curiousity that he has to respond to. It is a perpetual drive to discover more about the world. But he also says that if an answer is unavailable, he moves on to something else, and is not frightened by not knowing.

    It seems that this is sort of a knife edge. We humans demand answers. It is against our nature not to have them. It seems the scientist demands a truthful answer at the expense of leaving questions open. This will only drive curiosity -- either in a good way to promote inquiry, or in a way that might leave one confused and frightened.

  2. I am writing this post to all atheists who have a vested interest in debunking the myth of Jesus Christ. I am sorry if it bothers anyone that I am not continue the discussions that are going on your blog. Please contact me at the email address below and I promise I will never post on your blog again.

    Here's what's up. A number of fundamentalist Christian blogs have come out swinging against a new book by Stephan Huller called the Real Messiah. The most recent being:

    But there are many others. The only allies he seems to have on the web are a bunch of Jewish bloggers who like him because his mother was a Frankist (see wikipedia for more about this sect).

    In any event Huller's book presents evidence that a two thousand year old throne in Venice proves that Jesus was not and never claimed to be the messiah.

    Huller is going to appear on CNN in two weeks as part of his promotion of the book. As a big fan of his work I wanted to alert my fellow bloggers about this interview and have as many of us who have read the book to direct questions which challenge the existence of God and the whole Christian-fascist paradigm.

    If you are interested in getting more information about his appearance please contact me at If you haven't read the book here is a blog posting to familiarize yourself with his basic points when you do the phone in show:

    Thanks again
