The Closing of the Higher Ed Mind

If you want an explanation of the likes of PZ Meyers and his strange little “FreeThoughtBlogs” and “AtheismPlus” cult, there’s no better I’ve seen. It also matches my personal experience; it’s amazing how much of an intellectual bubble most people in the supposed intellectual elite often inhabit.

It would be tempting to feel sorry for these people since they don’t know they exist in an intellectual bubble, but the whole point of a University is supposed to be to expose you to a wider world, not constrict it.
