I'm fascinated that people seem to be so willing to accept unlikely explanations given odd circumstances.
miaedu posted this video in the "carrie" thread in Entertainment. It's interesting:
I suppose the amazing Randi would have been nonplussed. I hope I would have been, too.
On the other hand, are there not good reasons, other than theatrics, to entertain the unlikely?
For example, ought we not entertain an unlikely idea that helps us contemplate the trouble around a difficult problem like virtue?
In my opinion, too much of contemporary religion (per American Christianity especially) is like the gullible victim of the coffee shop prank.
In the meantime, are we all missing those figures which might help us delve into our most important questions?
