My interview in a Chinese magazine

In connection with my lecture on religion to children at an international school in Dongguan, China (on the mainland), I was interviewed by the Dongguan HubHao, an English-language magazine that I believe is written for expats.  That interview is up, and perhaps doesn’t say much to regulars here, but I’ll post it for the record.

Here I am with the students and a teacher.

    Interesting interview!

    And I am glad to see children being exposed to evolution at an early age.

      Too bad they don’t get an early exposure to democracy as well.

    “That interview is up and perhaps doesn’t say much to regulars here, but I’ll post it for the record.”

    A very good synopsis of who you are. It always amazes me at the thoughtfulness of your responses.

    Neat. I get the impression that the content is actually translated, despite the English first language author. Does that make sense?

    Interesting (from the interview) that Steven Weinberg didn’t accept the absence of free will.

    Which one is the teacher and which one is you? 🙂 Great that these kids are being exposed to real science and how to think, even if the latter aspect is probably restricted in the rest of their classroom experiences. If Pence has his way, the US is in for a decade or more of continued sub-standard religion infected education.
