1. Lauri Lebo: Not Even Camping’s Followers Believe End is Nigh
“I think the many Judgment Day pub crawls and Rapture parties are terrific. Humor is an invaluable tool for shining a light on crazy. According to this piece by Michael Tracey, even the most devoted of Harold Camping’s followers are having trouble ingesting the blue pill.”

2. David Giambusso: Does Peace Come From Within?
“The Dalai Lama says peace in the world begins with peace in oneself. Some of his fellow Nobel laureates, however, aren’t convinced.”It isn’t that I’m just an angry human being, it’s anger at injustice,” said Jody Williams, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997 for her work to ban land mines. “I’m still struggling with inner peace and I’m not sure I’ll ever work it out.”

3. Victor Stenger: The Folly of Faith
“The religious are assumed to be persons of the highest moral standards — exemplars of goodness, kindness, and charity. But why should that be? How does faith qualify anyone for such high esteem? After all, faith is unquestioning belief in the absence of supportive evidence and even in light of contrary evidence. How can one expect such a frame of mind to result in any special insight?”
