“Electric Meat”, the Meaning of Life and Separation of Church and State

All of these issues are in an article posted on Salon today of a conversation with skeptics founder Michael Shermer. Shermer is a happy agnostic (seems very pleasant in his responses) and tells of how he went from being a fervent Christian to disbelieving in God. I enjoyed reading his perspective, but can’t buy that we humans are just “electric meat” with no meaning in life other than that which we give ourselves. I do agree with his views about religious freedom and the need for a separation of church and state.
