Fear and Loathing in La Jolla

Whatever you do, don't miss George Johnson's report (our original post negleted to include this link, sorry) in the New York Times, "A Free-for-All on Science and Religion."

Here's a sample:

By the third day, the arguments had become so heated that Dr. Konner was reminded of “a den of vipers.”

“With a few notable exceptions,” he said, “the viewpoints have run the gamut from A to B. Should we bash religion with a crowbar or only with a baseball bat?”

His response to Mr. Harris and Dr. Dawkins was scathing. “I think that you and Richard are remarkably apt mirror images of the extremists on the other side,” he said, “and that you generate more fear and hatred of science.”
