Religious intolerance on Full Volume
Myanmar Gives Tourist Who Pulled Plug on Buddhist Chants 3 Months in Prison
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/07/world/...jtema.html

Last year I was in a similar position on the island of Sulawesi. The Muslims and the Christians have a full-on WWIII volume fight every fucking morning at 4 AM! No one had told me and I nearly hit the ceiling that first day. Calls to prayers from both sides so loud it could wake the dead.

I nearly left the compound where I was staying to go shut the fucking thing off and now after reading this I’m glad I didn’t.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Ahhh Buddhism. Nothing says inner peace like loud speakers at 6am and getting pissy at people who get pissy at the idea of loud speakers at 6am in the fucking morning.

And I kinda wanted to like Buddhism too. Well, at least I can let that rest.
