Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams

Clergy are to be urged to be more vocal in countering the arguments put forward by a more hard-line group of atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, who have campaigned for a less tolerant attitude towards religion.

A report endorsed by Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, warns that the Church faces a battle to prevent faith being seen as "a social problem" and says the next five years are set to be a period of "exceptional challenge". (...)

To Be Atheist, Feminist, and Black
Sadly, there is still a fair amount of ignorance and bigotry toward black non-believers in African American communities due to the stereotype that atheists are immoral, rudderless, and not authentically black. This belief is especially insidious for black women. Mainstream African American culture places a high premium on black female caregiving, piety, and sacrifice. The patriarchal traditions of the Black Church, with their emphasis on charismatic black male leadership and biblical literalism, play a key role in socializing black women to be subservient and self-sacrificing.

Love: it's all the same to the brain


There are no differences between heterosexuals and homosexuals or between women and men in terms of the brain systems regulating romantic love, according to new UCL research published in the latest issue of PLoS One.

I guess what I mean by simplistic is that inevitably there are disputes.  There are those that contribute and those that don't.  There are differences.

While I agree that nurture can go a long way in reducing violence, strife, etc., there is still nature.  People will fight.  People still have to eat.  People have to be educated.  The problem on how to equitably provide for the masses still exists even if you take away the state.  How are those problems addressed? 

I think I was asking for too much from a short video though.
