Today's entry will not be an original work of my own. Instead of writing one my usual essays, I'd like to share an important work of someone else: Sam Harris's The Fireplace Delusion. I think that this essay is vitally important, and should be read by every single person living in a developed, first world country.
You can either listen to the essay as read by a narrator on youtube (not Sam himself):
Or, alternatively, you may read it on Sam's blog if you wish:
The analogy with respect to religion is extremely important, of course, but I also want as many people as possible to read this, if for no other reason, so that I might have cleaner air to breathe and not have to pay the price of my neighbors' ignorance. Thanks for stopping by. Next time I will have another of my original works.
