Interesting study: Judgments About Fact and Fiction by Children From Religious and Nonreligious Backgrounds

From the abstract: “exposure to religious ideas has a powerful impact on children’s differentiation between reality and fiction, not just for religious stories but also for fantastical stories”.

Tonight Toronto350.org is holding a strategic planning session, in which to discuss organizational priorities for the next 6-12 months.

I can scarcely afford the time off comp preparation, but it’s probably important to attend.

Tomorrow is the last day of the summer when lunch will be served at Massey College. This is at least triply unfortunate, since lunch is often the most enjoyable social event in the college, having it provided saves a lot of shopping and cooking time, and free lunches are included in my contract with the summer residence program.

In addition to enjoying my last Massey lunch before the fall, I will also be on the radio briefly tomorrow, providing an update on the activities of Toronto350.org. In particular, that means our work on the Energy East pipeline, divestment, the September climate march in Manhattan, and incorporation.
