- Some interesting maps of religious distribution in USA from the Pluralism Project
- Jonathan Miller gets the BBC Online 5 minute treatment – and is fascinating as ever (though i would of course take issue with his atheism). He’s a bit crotchety and clearly doesn’t have much time for the notion of a 5 minute interview (e.g. his point that nothing of worth can be discussed in a short time – 3 cheers for that).
