Revelations are altitude sickness ? / New blog / Torturing Logic
A tentative studies posits that revelations from "Jesus", "Moses" and Mohammed" may actually be the result of altitude sickness. I'm glad that we've settled the issue of how these fictional characters came to have fictional experiences. Thanks.
My friend Brad has a new blog, "I probably think you’re wrong.", where he posts his replies to the editor and opinion pieces. Check it out !
I posted statistics on how Christians supported torture more than secular people. An article from Reason Magazine - "Torturing Logic" - gets us into the twisted minds of people who support torture, especially in the government.
Torture is the ultimate depravity. Fittingly, the torture debate has featured some new lows in depravity of the rhetorical kind. Leading conservative pundits, including Charles Krauthammer, Jonah Goldberg, and Thomas Sowell, have derided opposition to torture as “moral preening” or “moral exhibitionism.” Others made an issue of the homosexuality of journalist Andrew Sullivan, who has emerged as one of the most vocal critics of torture. After Sullivan condemned a notorious incident in which a female interrogator pretended to smear an Al Qaeda suspect with her menstrual blood in order to make him unclean in the eyes of his God, The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto suggested that Sullivan’s reaction came from disgust at female physiology related to a lack of sexual experience with women.
To this I must add that, given the Christianity prevalent in the United States, I am not surprised at all that torture is easily rationalized. After all, isn't torture really what Christianity is all about ?
