    I spent the last three days in Portland, Oregon, the kind of city I could easily live in: manageable, green, easy-going, mellow, polite. And I spent it with a few hundred entrepreneurs and activists, preparing and debating and sharing experiences about the burgeoning cannabis industry. It felt a lot like a gathering more than ten years’ ago of activists and ordinary gay folks, anticipating the possibility of civil marriage rights. It had the same energy, the same nervousness, and the same excitement. And, for me, the big reveal was the staggering level of innovation, imagination and…

  • The Awe And The Almighty

    Andrew Sullivan
    14 Sep 2014 | 5:47 pm
    Tania Lombroza explains what experiencing awe does – and doesn’t – have to do with religious belief: What we do know is that inducing experiences of awe can influence reported belief in God, potentially as a result of the need for accommodation that such experiences produce. One set of studies induced feelings of awe with videos of the natural world, and found that people subsequently reported greater supernatural belief. This was in part because awe made people less tolerant of uncertainty, and uncertainty is known to increase people’s confidence in agency and order. But the…

    Alex Mar tours the Forensic Anthropology Research Facility (FARF) in San Marcos, Texas, America’s largest “body farm” for studying human remains: The odor is strong as I walk among the cages, the air redolent with the heavy, sour-wet scent of these bodies letting go of their bile, staining the grasses all around them. I look at the sprawl, each individual in its strange shelter, shriveled and shocked-looking; each with more or less of its flesh and insides; each, in its post-person state, given a new name: a number. They died quietly, in an old-age home; they died painfully,…

    In a review of Adam Begley’s Updike, William Deresiewicz finds that writer’s short story, “Pigeon Feathers,” offers telling insight into his religious beliefs. In the story, the character David is asked by his mother to kill the pigeons roosting in their barn, which gives him “the sensation of a creator.” How Deresiewicz describes what happens next: It is when he’s burying these creatures that he has his epiphany. He has never seen a bird up close before. “Across the surface of the infinitely adjusted yet somehow effortless mechanics of the feathers…
  • The Ideology Of ISIS

    Andrew Sullivan
    14 Sep 2014 | 3:35 pm
    Kevin McDonald argues that its origins are not at all medieval, but rather modern, and indeed, even Western: It needs to be said very clearly: contemporary jihadism is not a return to the past. It is a modern, anti-traditional ideology with a very significant debt to western political history and culture. When he made his speech in July at Mosul’s Great Mosque declaring the creation of an Islamic state with himself as its caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi quoted at length from the Indian/Pakistani thinker Abul A’la Maududi, the founder of the Jamaat-e-Islami party in 1941 and originator of the…

  • Comment on The Death of Palestine: Israeli Ambition and Palestinian Weakness by Rob Roy

    Rob Roy
    14 Sep 2014 | 11:25 am
    Abbas is a puppet of Israel. The war crimes committed by Israel should be brought to the ICC. Yes, why is this not mentioned? And why can’t other groups bring these atrocities to the International Criminal Court? Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch? As for: “…Hamas seized power in the 2006 Palestinian legislative elections,” that is not true. Hamas didn’t “seize” power; Hamas was democratically elected. Immediately, the election was scorned by Israel and the United States. Hamas is less a terrorist organization than Israel, as proven by the genocide Israel is…

    Here we go again. Ukraine has a no right to its own sovereignty because it is in Russia’s imaginary back yard. Next you will be calling it “The Ukraine”. Urkraine is an independent country, with its own language and its own culture. As a sovereign state it has every right to establish its own destiny. And your history is way way off. First, there is only one Russian federation(singular not plural). Ukraine has never been a part of this federation. Yes, it was part of tsarist Russia a 100 years ago, but it was also part of Poland and, at another time, part of Lithuania. 800…

    I think you should talk about it in terms of a notion that I have observed… “A ten year rule”. The crazes of the ISIS were teenagers when George W Bush’s administration were proudly showing their shock and awe campaign in Iraq on TV. The crazies that did the 9/11 were teenagers when George H Bush (the senior) was proudly showing the “turkey shoot” of Iraqies in the Iraq-Kuwait conflict. Then there were some that had seen the Israeli brutality in Beirut and Lebanon few years earlier. Older people see these things as confirmation that they should just stay…

    While they are promoting these hate-encouraging emotions and enthusiasm for more war, the mainstream media dutifully avoids applying the barbarism label to actions by our “friends” that are clearly barbaric.
