Boggled minds boggle minds

Those pillars of sagacity at the seriously minted Templeton Foundation, who like to hand out huge sums of dosh to esteemed individuals whose work they deem somehow (wittingly or unwittingly) shoe-horns with their mission to emulsify the rational and the irrational, have, in their latest money-wasting endorsement of pseudoscience, awarded this years science and faith-mangling pot to the Dalai Lama.

But, of course, with it being the Dalai Lama, it will be a popular choice, regardless, right? ‘Cos we all think he’s great and lovely, right? Think we’re also supposed to genuflect to him as ‘His Holiness’, or something. Do me a favour.

One response to “Boggled minds boggle minds

  1. …to emulsify the rational and the irrational…

    Couldn’t have said it any better.
    Although… One could perhaps argue that it is their money to do as they pleased. However, it is the purpose for which they lavish the gold, their insidious mission – of inserting belief and supplanting rationality with faith wherever possible – that is reprehensible.
    And that, too, when money is generally in short supply and could be spent more commodiously, saving lives and asking fundamental questions about natural phenomena. Sigh.
    Well-written as ever, Lee.
