Finding Friends Everywhere

Me oh my, this is a zeitgeist. A week or two ago I found my new favorite neuro-philosophy blog, and found coincidentally that he was a fan of Randi and had his own battles with Discovery Institute running dogs. And now, I'm on my way to a run in Pescadero Creek County Park and I stop at the San Gregorio General Store, exactly the kind of quirky, awesome general store and bar and bookstore that you would expect on the California central coast. And among the several books on display? Phil Zuckerman's Society Without God, Sam Harris's Letter to a Christian Nation, and a book of lesser-known Ben Franklin quotations that no doubt contain some pithy dissections of religion. Those poll numbers don't lie.
