    that rational thinking is a good thing.  And that you can't think about what seems magical using scientific techniques.  Sorry, but I disagree.  Magical thinking (the unicorn will fix it all), and thinking about things that appear magical are two totally different things.  

    That many people prefer not to think at all about things that seem magical, to the extent of presuming their nonexistence, without data to back that presumption up, seems to me to be one of the failures of "rational" thinking.

    So I can't buy the thesis that 'rational' thinkers would be less likely to be influenced by the GOP hate mongers than someone who calls herself a spiritual thinker.  I don't see any solid data on either side, just anecdotal, and that seems to go off in all directions.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh....
