Sokal's hoax notes

Comments Filter:
  • Mainly his reducing of religion to prejudice (2008 paper).
    1. Atheism is religion (prejudice?). It is a belief, unsupported by evidence, in the fact of non-existence of God.
    2. Human spirituality (religiousnes) can manifest itself in various ways. I think it is a part of human nature, possible subject of scientific study.
    3. Atheist societies aren't necessarily ruled by reason more than the religious ones (Stalinist Soviet Union, the biology of Lysenko)
