Emmanuel Macron is right. This is an international crisis, a world crisis. bbc.co.uk/news/world-lat…
Islamophobia: otiose word that doesn’t deserve definition. Hatred of Muslims is unequivocally reprehensible. Hatred of Islam on the other hand is easily justified, as is hatred of any obnoxious ideology. Muslims themselves are the main victims of Islam bit.ly/30mnbsi

Kathleen Ferrier’s rendering of Handel’s “He was despiséd” is sublime. Robin Lane Fox (The Unauthorized Version) suggests that “The Suffering Servant” (the “He” to whom Isaiah’s poem refers) meant the Jewish captives in Babylon, not a single individual. bit.ly/2Zli4Ho
I missed this very good article by Matt Ridley in 2014, or I would have tweeted it then. thetimes.co.uk/article/anglic…

I’ve probably tweeted a link to this before, but it’s been a while. I happened upon it this afternoon. What a lovely man Neil deGrasse Tyson is. If only he (or anyone close to being as decent, intelligent & knowledgeable as he is) were President! bit.ly/2P4hqOR

‘Viral’ Hunts? A Cultural Darwinian Analysis of Witch Persecutions. Fascinating paper by Steije Hofhuis & Maarten Boudry (2019) showing that Meme Theory gives the best explanation of the remarkable witch-persecution phenomenon. bit.ly/30icRRZ

The Translations Project is making a number of my books available for free download in Arabic, Farsi, Urdu and Indonesian. I hope this will contribute to more journeys (and tweets) like this one in the future. translationsproject.org
Much better than The Matrix is Daniel F Galouye’s 1964 novel Simulacron 3 (UK title Counterfeit World). Of course the regress isn’t infinite. It must be terminated by a “real” world in which creative intelligence evolved by a gradual (presumably Darwinian) incremental process
At first reading, Nick Bostrom’s theory seems bizarre, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s wrong. As for the idea that it might be dangerous to find out, I must admit that had not occurred to me. nytimes.com/2019/08/10/opi…
In 2016 nobody voted for no-deal Brexit. It wasn’t on the ballot, wasn’t on the radar. Even the most ardent Brexiteers assumed a negotiated divorce. The 2019 referendum should offer a choice of revoking Article 50 versus whatever deal or no-deal the Government comes up with.
If no-deal Brexit happens, is united Ireland a real possibility? And independent Scotland? Might they unite in a Celtic Republic? What about Wales? Food for thought? Or is it unthinkable? But in 2016 when we voted, Brexit with no-deal was unthinkable. bit.ly/2Z09y0h

Playing lottery at all is illogical, like all gambling on games of chance. But yet again, a kind of dim logic can be seen. Hope, however forlorn, could be said to brighten life & enhance happiness. Does same apply to believing an agreeable falsehood? Like Heaven after death?
A man correctly chose the winning numbers for huge lottery jackpot. But he forgot to mail his entry, so won 0. His suicide seems illogical: no worse off than before. But there is a certain logic to it. The rest of his life he’d have been kicking himself. Regret is a real cost.

Has he really never heard of the Warsaw Uprising? Or is his narcissistic self-obsession so extreme that he actually thinks “The people of Poland like me” is an appropriate response to a question about that tragically doomed feat of bravery? bit.ly/2OMK6LU

This background to this whole deplorable story is laid out in Martin Moore’s highly readable book, Democracy Hacked. Strongly recommended.
The Great Hack. Sensationally great film, only just out, on how Cambridge Analytica delivered the infamous 2016 votes by gathering & selling massive quantities of data so individually-tailored lies could be aimed at each floating voter (in swing states). Boycott Facebook!
“Don't call people's beliefs a virus, that's like calling people cockroaches. Very offensive and unnecessary” Ok then, “Don’t call cancer a disease. Very offensive to cancer sufferers”? Children indoctrinated with religion are the main sufferers from the mind virus of faith.
ODST is run by the Anglican church, which propagates a weakened strain of the virus. If this couple win their case, I hope it will serve as a precedent for campaigns to protect children from more virulent plagues such as Islam and Roman Catholicism. bit.ly/2GAxMb7

This man has risen to the top of a profession entirely devoted to telling people what to think without evidence. His whole career has been devoted to telling people made-up stuff: virgin births, resurrections etc. So, to make up one more bit of nonsense comes naturally.
