I don’t know what it is about Fridays, but they do seem to bring the avalanche of crazy-in-a-bad-way news. Let us roll around in it, shall we? It’s time for The Morning Heresy. centerforinquiry.org/blog/its-easy-…

Grey squirrels are bigger, stronger and breed faster than reds. They are just better at making use of scarce resources. So when greys move in reds quickly die out. Add to this the problem of squirrel pox. Greys carry the disease but don’t get ill. For reds it’s fatal.

Genetic research shows that a remarkable number of our current greys can be traced back to the Woburn squirrels. Squirrels living quite close to one another can be completely different genetically. But the Woburn genes popped up in populations all over the country.

11th Duke of Bedford introduced grey squirrels to Woburn in the 1880s. He is credited with introducing them into Regents Park & Richmond. He is also thought to have given them to friends up and down the country for release on their own estates. bit.ly/3vzmwUM

The Coddling of the American Mind, by Greg Lukianoff & Jonathan Haidt. Superb book, deeply important. Please read it. If you are a student, read it. If you are a parent of a future student, read it. Whoever you are, please read it. Read it. Read it. Read it. Please read it.
The Coddling of the American Mind is a truly BRILLIANT book. But a tiny carp. Given the authors’ concern over student juvenilization, they should have respected English’s useful distinction between “university”, and “school” (where you go when too young for university).
Looking forward to going to London this evening to hear @sapinker expound his new book on Rationality, at the How To Academy. The world could do with more rationality (and more people like Steve Pinker). howtoacademy.com/events/steven-…
In today’s RDFRS Newsletter, our CEO Robyn Blumner reflects on how we just honoured Tim Minchin. She also, to mark Francis Collins’s stepping down from NIH, unearths an old debate between him & me. I’d totally forgotten it, but I stand by all I said: bit.ly/2Z8VVBJ

Death is a fact of life. The fact we are going to die, and not live on in an eternal afterlife, can inspire us to live life to the fullest. A point well made in the new @Humanists_UK video. #thatshumanism twitter.com/Humanists_UK/s…

It’s time for The Morning Heresy news roundup once again, and as usual for Monday, there’s a lot to dig through. And yeah it doesn’t help that I missed Friday, but, you know, stuff happens, despite our best attempts to get stuff to stop. Like, just…stop. centerforinquiry.org/blog/everythin…

Just listened to @sapinker on BBC Start the Week. Superb, as always. I was impressed, too, by the chairman, @amolrajan, whom I hadn’t heard before. Difficult balancing act, timekeeping and segueing between 3 guests, & he carried it off with affability, wit & intelligence.
Lovely chat between @dallascampbell & @RichardDawkins at @tal_festival today. Flights Of Fancy is a fabulous read with fabulous illustrations.

Rereading (audio) The Coddling of the American mind, well narrated by @JonHaidt. Don’t be a candle blown out by the wind: be a fire, strengthened by it. Be anti-fragile. Resist tribalism. We need a word for physical violence & it is “violence”. PLEASE read this superb book.
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one. youtube.com/watch?v=v1mE_l… Welcome to The Morning Heresy news roundup, which has William Shatner going into space at the end. centerforinquiry.org/blog/space-see…

The Center for Inquiry’s presentation of their Richard Dawkins Award to @timminchin went well yesterday. The Sheldonian Theatre was completely sold out. Tim came across as the delightful person he is, and @davidcowan was a very effective chairman.
I have to warn you, today’s Morning Heresy news roundup has a lot of crazy in it. I know, I know, it always does. But trust me, we have passed a new threshold of lunacy. centerforinquiry.org/blog/the-tip-o…

Hard to credit the stupidity of those who claim mirrored tit-for-tat against restaurants that ban maskless customers. You cannot reasonably say wearing a mask hurts others. But you can so accuse those that wantonly defy medically advised precautions against infecting others.
