Good Reasons for "Believing" in God - Dan Dennett, AAI 2007

His speech to the AAI in 2007 was (to use the philosopher's craft) is an entertaining, thought provoking, full of ambiguous meaning, touching on many ideas - especially other peoples' ideas.

Professor Dennett introduced the word "brights" and "super" and others. What! He created the words, brights and supers? No, he (or someone he borrowed from) added another meaning or two those words. He is using religion's long time practiced tools to "evolve" the human language into a more ambiguous language. 

I respect Prof. Dennett but I must say he has a singular ability to play word games.

I think this world would be much better off without word games.
