I'm sure his mind is closed about karezza, but I still really like this guy, and had to laugh at this one.

Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person

(22 minute video)

At least he realizes instincts are not infallible guides.


That's a shame because

he has a lot of good ideas and ways of looking at life. I especially resonated with how he explained how we usually go out into the world looking for a mate. It always amazes me how many people are so open in some areas of thought and then not open in others.  

My guess is that most of the time

we co-opt religion to meet our biologically driven ends.

Exceptions are Buddhism's tenets urging its priests not to procreate lest they increase human misery, and a similar decision supposedly (mythically?) made by aboriginal Australians according to a book I once read.
