John Gray’s egregious errors

In an interview that appears on the website of the Edge Foundation (www.edge.org) under the title “The Evaporation of the Powerful Mystique of Religion”, he [Daniel Dennett] predicts that “in about 25 years almost all religions will have evolved into very different phenomena, so much so that in most quarters religion will no longer command the awe that it does today”. He is confident that this will come about, he tells us, mainly because of “the worldwide spread of information technology (not just the internet, but cell phones and portable radios and television)”.

It doesn’t require information technology to induce dirft in the world’s religions. And the influence of such technology in the environment of media hype (the advertising mode of deception) is likely to make them worse.
