Merry Christmas, Anita, Os, Rosemary, John and Nontheist Friends!
Greatly enjoying the Xmas music here on the radio - while visiting in Pennsylvania (it's been a long time since it was a Friendly religious experiment as Penns' Woods - and I'm in the other smaller big city in western PA, and not in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, which has changed so much since its Quaker "heyday" in the the 1600s and 1700s) - even while thinking through how Richard Dawkins - https://twitter.com/RichardDawkins - might respond to the Bible Readings (mentioning nakedness in the garden, for example) in the music from Kings' College Cambridge - as a kind of atheist Quaker.
My mother in her early 80s in enjoying learning about the new iPhone smartphone she got herself recently, and especially its robust voice recognition software (Siri is more robust than Google Voice, but Google Voice will improve with Google's A.I. software TensorFlow). Did NtFriends see the recent NYT's article on the Great A.I. Awakening, which you'll see here - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.
Here's my Holiday Letter for all of you as well - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Friendly greetings in this holiday season,
Here's my recent actual - virtual Harbin ethnographic book, in which I mention NtFs and Quakers both:
