Someone who WON'T be coming to TED

Apparently Katrina was God’s punishment on a sinful New Orleans.

I guess that would explain all those tsunami deaths among those sinful people in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and India too…

    I agree Billy Graham gave a wonderful talk… completely different in tone, intelligence and insight from the article above that, frankly, made me feel physically sick.

    Is the author trying to say that those who dont follow his way will be killed and tortured?? That dont sound godly to me. it sounds more like a villain in a movie or worse, devilish. I hope people will start using some brains and think before writing

    You say: “TED appears to have taken on sort of a celebration of godlessness, an absence of spirituality…”

    I say Not So. We celebrate science, to be sure, but a quick check back through the past few TED’s would reveal plenty of speakers and moments that to me were profoundly spiritual. The French/Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard. Jane Goodall. Wade Davis. Anna Deveare Smith. Reverend Tom Honey’s soul-searching on the tsunami. An entire TED devoted to a deeper understanding of ‘the pursuit of happiness’.
