"Living is easy with eyes closed, Misunderstanding all you see"
This site was launched in January 2003 as a companion to The Millenium Project site. People kept asking me to give some pointers to sites which I could recommend as an antidote to the hate, the lies and the nonsense in the sites listed at The Millenium Project. The Green Light is a collection of sites which I believe give reliable information and which can be used as references or to find counter-arguments. I don't necessarily agree with everything in these sites (just as I don't necessarily disagree with the content of all sites listed in The Millenium Project), but I believe they offer a better picture of reality than the collected badness at the other place. The list of sites here will be added to and updated regularly. Suggestions for additional sites are always welcome.
How We Believe : The Search for God in an Age of Science by Michael Shermer. Shermer makes the distinction between belief, non-belief and unbelief, and describes his own transition from one state to another. Religion and science have different roles in society, and this book looks at the boundaries and overlaps which are legitimate for each.
