I agree with the concept of viewing Obama as both the light house
and the lightning rod. And, in comparing him to Lincoln’s dilemna.
This puts it into perspective for me. We truly need a leader who
will be able to cope with the divisions and egos in our country.
Thanks, Deepak!

The leader we need may not be the one we get. It’s sad.
I’m tired of hearing about this. The media can’t focus on issues that actually impact my life.
I think Barak’s effort to keep lobbyists out of his campaign is more sincere than anything I’ve seen in the Democratic Party in years. The gravy train that Washington D.C. provides to money and pork interests is far more outrageous than anything Barak’s pastor has said.
Barak was also way ahead on the learning curve pertaining to Iraq. He was against it from the beginning and risked his Senate campaign on the issue when Bush’s popularity was through the stratosphere.
In spite of all this we’re talking about Reverend Wright again.
Come on folks. Barak is half white.
Wake up!

Memo to Neuroscience: “We Are Not Brain Puppets”
The notion that human beings walk, talk, think, and do things because our brains control us is a fringe idea, easily refuted with a few moment’s thought and rarely taken seriously. But it got a boost from an Op-ed piece in the New York Times last week under the title, “Are We Really Conscious?

A Science of Miracles--No Longer Optional? (Part 2)
For most people, miracles are something left behind in childhood. They require innocent belief, not adult rationality. The camp of vocal skeptics and atheists provide a crossroads, in fact, where one way leads to irrationality, the other to rationality, as if this definitively defines where the trut

A Science of Miracles—No Longer Optional?
In its ambition to explain every aspect of the natural world, modern science has sidestepped very few problems. Some mysteries are so difficult that they defy the scientific method. It’s hard to conceive of experiments that will tell us what happened before time and space emerged, for example. But

Can Sam Harris Wake Us Up? (Part 2)
Most of us recognized ourselves in the mirror this morning.  The person looking back at us has a familiar name, a family, a job.  He (or she) carries around a long menu of likes and dislikes, along with a personal history from the moment we emerged from the womb. It would amaze the vast majority o

Can Sam Harris Wake Us Up?
It caused a stir when Sam Harris, in a new book titled Waking Up, changed his message from militant atheism to peaceful Buddhism. A positive message is better than a negative one, and since Buddhism is often labeled as “a religion without God,” Harris's move isn't as radical as it looks at first
