The god our neighbours believe in is essentially an invisible person, a creator diety who created the universe to have a relationship with one species of primate – lucky us – and he’s got galaxy upon galaxy to attend to, but he?s especially concerned with what we do, especially what we do while naked. He almost certainly disapproves of homosexuality, … if you’re to have any kind of future in politics in this country – you could be an unprecedented genius, you could look like George Clooney, you can have a billion dollars and you could have the social skills of Oprah, and you?re going nowhere in politics in this country unless you believe in that sort of god.

Citat s facebook stranice:
Can violence really have declined? The images of global conflict we see daily on our screens suggest this is an almost obscene claim to be making. Extraordinarily, however, in this riveting talk to accompany his new book The Better Angels of Our Nature US cognitive scientist Steven Pinker shows violence within and between societies ? both murder and warfare ? has actually declined from prehistory to today.
Ranging over everything from art to religion, trade to table manners, Pinker shows how life has changed across the centuries and around the world ? not simply through the huge benefits of organized government, but also because of the extraordinary power of progressive ideas. Why has this come about? And what does it tell us about ourselves? It takes one of the world’s greatest psychologists to have the ambition and the breadth of understanding to appreciate and explain this story, to show us our very natures.
