Annals of academic angst - 2

We have already seen some examples of angst that is rather unique to academics. Here is one which is somewhat more general: "[a] little morality tale, in which our hero resists the lure of easy money and emerges with his self-respect somewhat intact". Read this excellent piece by Sean Carroll, a cosmologist and an atheist.

Also read this other post by Sean, and you will learn, inter alia, about dark religious forces (can religious forces be anything else? ;-) that are all around us.
