Oh Listen to the Radio

I listen to the radio all day. In the kitchen, upstairs, on the ‘puter and in the car. When Mr G and I first met he didn’t get it but he is now similarly addicted. Our station of choice is Radio 4 but he also listens to Radio Oxford in the car for local gossip.

Today, in the space of five minutes I heard two things that struck me. The first was this:
We don’t understand how the brain works, we can barely write good software and we certainly can’t write software that does what a brain does.

Then this:
They say we are all capable of doing bad things but it takes religion to make good people do bad things.

The first reassured me, the second bothered me and I am still pondering it. I need to listen again to find out what the person who said it was referring to.

  1. Oh No! Now I’m pondering it too! Look what you’ve done!

    That’s why I listen to local radio instead…I don’t have the brain capacity to actually think about any more things than are already jumbly-crammed in my head.
