Enjoyable program with Richard Dawkins that explores morality in a post-religious age.

Can you imagine the Pope saying this? What about a prominent Imam?
 
All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether.

I don't know any prominent Imams.

But I absolutely agree with the sentiment.

If news of the LinkedIn password leak made you worry about anything beyond your LinkedIn account being compromised, you need to seriously rethink your password management strategy.

STOP. REUSING. PASSWORDS.

This seems rather presumptuous of Google+, to inject thoughts on +William P. Davis's behalf. Let's hear it, Will — are you secretly pining for my input? ;-)

Google knows more about me than I do about myself, so I trust them. Plus is prescient, actually — I was just startled awake from a nightmare involving not being shared with enough on G+.

The new Google+ design is very pleasing to my eyes. But it runs really slow in Chrome. Scrolling is kind of jerky.

So who's still using Google Plus? I'm interested in using it as a sort of Twitter+, instead of the Facebook alternative it's billed as. Speak up if you're actually reading this. If people participate on here, I'll start posting here more for more in-depth conversations.

I'm here. I find that technical discussions are of much higher quality here than on Facebook. That may be a function of the makeup of my feeds on each service, but I've found that it's a common sentiment.

Google+ seems to have far fewer people posting about their family or sharing random images-of-the-day. There's a time and place for that, but it's nice to have a place with a higher SNR.

Religious people often tell me silly things like "it takes faith to be an atheist!" After I explain to them that it doesn't require belief to doubt something for which their is no evidence, I'm often told "oh, so you're an agnostic, not an atheist." No, I'm both. It's not a scale of atheist–agnostic–believer. Theism/atheism is one question. Gnosticism/agnosticism is a separate question. Read my post for a full explanation.
Both. I am an agnostic atheist. Theism is a belief in a god (or gods). Atheism is a lack of belief in a god (or gods). Consider the question: “do you believe in any gods?” If your answer is “no”, “I d...

I'm an atheist. I'm 100% sure I am. I'm also 100% sure there is not, never has been, nor ever will be... a god. I'll bet my life on it ;)
