Re: dolphin slaughter in Taiji/ strengthening nationalism

I sometimes think every culture ought to be given one topic on which they are not required to be reasonable. For the French, wine; for the Germans, beer; for the Swiss, chocolate. If the Japanese want it to be cetaceans, they'd have to give up letting it be rice; my bet is they'd give up cetaceans.

The seal-clubbing thing is in a totally different domain. If you eat meat or wear leather, shut up about the seals.

Evolution doesn't prove God doesn't exist, any more than hammers prove carpenters don't exist.
