Do Unto Others…

… As You Would Have Them Do Unto You is axiomatic. It’s baked into the universe. All your attempts to claim an exemption will not help you create a finer morality.

Sam Harris’s project to make a science of morality is doomed to failure. I like reading Harris; he’s a bright guy and good theater. But don’t be fooled: morality is not science, any more than a hammer is inherently good or bad.

On another topic: tomorrow, I’m going to share a redacted Facebook thread where friends and I discussed evolution with a person who, though not identifying as a Creationist, certainly championed the Creationist view.
