"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

The Reinvention of the Reinvention of the Wheel

Sometimes I think "Morning Edition" should go back to being a one-hour program.  Like cable news, there isn't enough information to fill the format they've set up for themselves.

So today we learn that maybe, just maybe, people are influenced in their ethical decisions by the people around them.  And it's a scientific study, so it must be true!

In other news, water may be wet:  test results are pending.  And the Pope may be Catholic; but not all the data has been fully analyzed yet.

Hey, these are sci-guys, you can't expect them to notice those kinds of things or the literature dealing with that going back to the dawn of writing. I mean, they've got to look at the evidence.

I can't wait for someone working off of this to do a cost-profit analysis of whistle blowing and how managers can more effectively prevent the whistle blowing that they don't like.
