Latest article – two days ago – was Hot Sexy Muslim women.. etc... – about What Style of Dress is Appropriate for Women in Public..
Between you and me, I chose that tittle, rather than the dull “Middle Eastern Values Survey”, as an experiment: Would an article with a SEXY tittle get (many) more hits than the average ~ 100 a day..
As it turned out, the answer was negative, but as a general rule, – see Blogging Rule # 5 Or How To Get 1 Million Hits To Your Blog Without Really Trying, – the answer is a definite YES !
Anyway, Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet has asked its readers the same question: What Style of Dress is Appropriate for Women in Public ?
You’ll see the result below, and for comparison I’ve picked the data for Saudi Arabia. The map is interactive, but you’ll have to visit Ekstra Bladet for that.
The Muslim population of Denmark is 4-5 %, which probably explains the otherwise unbelievable ~4% votes for woman 1..
No surprises here..
Have you read Sam Harris’ bestseller, The Moral Landscape ? – I haven’t, but maybe I should.. – It’s my chance to earn $ 20,000 ! – And yours.., – all you have to do is write in 1,000 words or less, that Harris is a Godless charlatan, who..
Nah.., – a better idea is to come up with some really serious arguments that will refute Harris’ central thesis, that..
“Morality and values depend on the existence of conscious minds—and specifically on the fact that such minds can experience various forms of well-being and suffering in this universe. Conscious minds and their states are natural phenomena, fully constrained by the laws of the universe (whatever these turn out to be in the end). Therefore, questions of morality and values must have right and wrong answers that fall within the purview of science (in principle, if not in practice). Consequently, some people and cultures will be right (to a greater or lesser degree), and some will be wrong, with respect to what they deem important in life”.
Refute, persuade, cash in ! – Think you can do it ? – Remember: You don’t have to mean a word of what you say, – just pretend you’re on God’s side, and teach this Godless atheist monster a lesson. Tear him apart !
Be warned though: You’re in for a hard time, and honestly, I don’t think you can pull it off.. – In fact, I don’t think anyone can pull it off..
How does one refute the damn’ truth ?!..
