Monday: Hili Dialogue

by Grania

Good morning everyone. Reports of my “retirement” may have been a little overstated yesterday. I’m not gone, just on reduced hours. Bl*gging will continue, as much as everyone is able.

Today’s Hili is a little obscure, and requires some background. As you know Małgorzatą and Andrzej run a Polish rationalist website of their own, Listy z naszego sadu with Madam Hili as Editor In Chief. They translate many articles from multiple sources on science, secularism, religion, politics etc.

Małgorzatą explains:

Hili just gave her approval to the decision to publish the interview of Michael Shermer by Sam Harris.

A. Have you already read Sam Harris?
Hili: Yes, tasty.

In Polish:

Ja: Czytałaś już Sama Harrisa?
Hili: Tak, smaczny.

    Matthew’s book was reviewed in the Sunday Times yesterday – must scan it – was nice if short.

      PS we were all going to club together & get you a retirement present – never mind! 😉

    “Sam Harris–Tasty” would be a great book blurb.

    Any chance for an English translation of the interview? I’d love to read it, but my Polish is limited to words like, “kielbasa,” and, “kabanos”…and I somehow doubt that that’s the sort of “tasty” that Hili has in mind….
