Swords & Space IX: Nightfall -- Tomorrow Evening at 9 Eastern

Tomorrow evening I'll be joined again by my friend Marc Ratusz, who was my guest on the inaugural episode of Swords and Space Radio. I found this work a fascinating read, although it relies heavily on the false dichotomy of "reason/science versus religion". I'll admit that I haven't read a ton of Asimov (just the Foundation books, and that was a lifetime ago) and hadn't realised he was a militant atheist. Anyway, here's the link:

Asimov was more the Western equivalent of a Neo-Confucian, than a militant atheist proper. He thought religion was good for its social utility, and considered the question of its truth or falsehood counterproductive. So people who take their religion seriously are bad, but those whose religion brainwashes them into good little citizens are good.
