As you also well know two of the most extreme examples of events associated with this stress are the events of September 11th 2001 and the resulting war against the nation of Iraq by the United States. Other events around the world before and after these events are equally distressing and important. These two events have, however, have focused our attention most sharply.
The Most Important Thing we can all do is to study the
causes of our current situation and to come up with a way forward out of
our common distress.
Recently I have read a book by
Sam Harris (The End of
Faith, Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason). I am
currently working my way through a series of lectures and interactions
by some of the most brilliant people in their fields on this issue. You
can download or view the streaming video of this conference at
Beyond Belief, Science Religion
Reason and Survival.
The conference is not just about religion, it is about how the universe
itself and how human beings in that universe behave and work.
