Download the podcast or listen to it here.Is evolution carrying us upward to new heights of human goodness, as some have claimed? If not that, then will a computer-connected Singularity take us on that upward trajectory, as Yuval Noah Harari argues in Homo Deus? With his famous quick wit, Berlinski says no, and warns of a new “explosion of religion,” but a new religion, one without rational grounding and with a great willingness to punish dissenters.

PSC golf from The Fairways Golf SocietyTuesday, July 19, Khao Kheow – StablefordOnce again we arrived at the course to find out we had it virtually to ourselves and as always here it was in good condition.  So with a good turn out today we split the field up into two divisions and set off for a very pleasant round of golf. The A flight was taken in great style by Fred Land with 40 points.  Fred has only been back in Thailand for one week and this is the third time he has amassed 40 plus points.  I can just visualise the handicapper sharpening his scissors right now!  Only one other player managed to play under his handicap, Shaun Tracey with 37 points, well played Shaun.  Ning Neal also carried on with her good form to finish third.last_img read more
