The Cult of Rationality   posted by Razib @ 4/06/2009 11:33:00 PM

The gang at Overcoming Bias has a new project, Less Wrong: A Community Blog Devoted To Refining The Art Of Human Rationality. If you just laughed, you probably shouldn't click through. Otherwise, you probably already know about it, but if you don't, check it out. I'll be honest and admit that I've become more skeptical of the power of human rationality as the years have gone by, but I do enjoy talking to people who prioritize rationality (at least notionally) more than those who don't. Consider that many people who enjoy gambling know that odds are they'll probably lose money. But the winning is sweet indeed.
