Carroll calls out Douthat

Ross Douthat, one of the empty-headed, rightwing blowhard-columnists that the NY Times inexplicably hosts, wrote a truly sickening article about Hell yesterday. Short version: He likes the idea and wants it to exist. Eternal torment is a great idea, thinks little Ross. Here's a link to the thing, if you want to make yourself nauseous.

But a far better move is to read Sean Carroll's post on Douthat's column. Carroll is one of our preeminent physicists and he gives Douthat exactly what he deserves: a tongue-lashing. It's a great post that I think you'll enjoy reading.

Anyone who believes in Hell is an evil, hateful pig. Just saying.
