New Maps of Bulgaria
by L. Neil Smith
First, the bad news. Several years ago, I wrote an
essay, "On a Clear Day You Can See BulgariaBut Who Wants to Look?"
(See Lever Action), about the sad state that science fiction, as
a literary form, then found itself in.
The Market For Genes
by Eric Pavao
I read L. Neil Smith's article last week "A Sad Case
of Evolution Denial" with interest, having just recently read another
article called "Does fundamentalist religion cause the rejection of
evolution? or is it the other way around?" where the author hypothesizes
that people do not reject evolution because of religion, but rather they
reject evolution because it is counter-intuitive to them. He goes on to
say that because of the seemingly counter-intuitiveness of the concept
most people turn to the only other explanation of which they are familiar.
Which happens to be what has been taught to them by their religion. To
make his case he uses other examples where people reject similar ideas
even though these similar ideas do not threaten their religious beliefs
in any way. . . .
Some Gratitude, Please?
by Mike Blessing
A short while ago, I wrote an article titled "Wipe
Your Own Ass, America" which also ran in The Libertarian Enterprise.
Maybe I haven't been placing my articles in the right places (easily
remedied!), but I haven't received any hate mail over it. Which is a
shame, as I love hate mail.
