I’ve always found discussions on the validity of religious belief fascinating, and am drawn to those discussions, despite my own views on the basic argument being fairly polarized in relation to those I enjoy hearing. I had a coffee with Malachi O’Doherty last week, and towards the end of the conversation, it turned to religion. He outlined to me why he feels that the story of Adam and Eve is the antithesis of education and progression, and I, much less articulately, outlined to him why I felt he was taking the story a little too literally. An abridged version of one half of that conversation can be heard on Malachi’s latest podcast (Direct ITunes feed subscription here).
I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
