The coolest music video you’ll see all day is below. The song is “Malignant Narcissism” by the band Rush. The video was created by Bobby Standridge. You may want the full screen for this one:
Rush lyricist Neil Peart also mentions Richard Dawkins‘ The God Delusion in the liner notes to their album Snakes and Arrows:
I was also thinking, like Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion, about how children are usually imprinted with a particular faith, along with their other early blessings and scars. People who actively choose their faith are vanishingly few; most simply receive it, with their mother’s milk, language, and customs. Thinking also of people being shaped by early abuse of one kind or another, I felt a connection with friends who had adopted rescue dogs as puppies, and given them unlimited love, care, and security. If those puppies had been ‘damaged’ by their earlier treatment — made nervous, timid, or worse — they would always remain that way, no matter how smooth the rest of their life might be. It seemed the same for children.
