Prairie voles are Christians


Hey, Patricia Churchland does the Colbert Report. Oxytocin, prairie voles and montane voles, bonding, the self is in the brain, what about the soul?

Any time people try to tell you how great Sam Harris’s take on morality is, just tell them to read Patricia Churchland instead.

    Voles are to Christians as cats are to lions. The major difference is that cats don’t come with colosseums (colossea?).

    Whenever I watch Colbert, I’m never sure if the audience is cheering the satirist or the character he’s playing.

    The irony is that the RSC are receiving support from Sinn Fein.

    The world is a bit weird.

    They specialise in affectionate parody so I can’t imagine there’s anything particularly controversial in the play.

    It really does look like someone desperately looking for something to be ‘offended’ by.
