This is the (edited) body of an e-mail I sent to The Reality Check. Probably my favourite podcast at present. I got a reply from Elan (my favourite host—everything's coming up Milhouse!) asking if I could post it somewhere so they might link to it in the show notes. That's what this is.
So I was recently reading about Kullback-Leibler divergence in the hopes of finding something to help me with the problem I'm working on (I have a feeling my next presentation will need the subtitle "My descent into statistics") when I found a passage on wikipedia that resonated quite well with me (appropriate links mostly added by me):
"New technologies and the progress they bring can make it impossible to distinguish truth from illusion and can lead to confusion between reality and virtual reality," the pope said.
I thought this might be of amusement to the pundits here: How Ignorant About Religion Are Religious Americans?
I thought some of you may like to know about the First Annual Catholic Conference on Geocentrism. I googled some of the names involved and as far as I can tell it's legit.
So last night the topic of gender neutrality in the likes of policeman vs police officer came up and, unsurprisingly, I have an opinion on this and thought I may make a blog post detailing said stance.
