    My goodness, that’s a reserved crowd at the Eagleton lecture! Maybe I make too many bad jokes when I teach my own classes, but I thought Eagleton was hilarious, and those folks were STONE.

    [edit: Now that I watched the Q&A at the end, I get it–he’s speaking to a room full of British atheists. I suppose one’s audience does matter.]

    Eagleton’s a great example of a scholar who is decidedly NOT “dead from the waist down.” This audience seems to prefer the usual academic eunuch, bashfully whispering into the microphone. I’ve made a new rule for myself: don’t read any of the feedback on public sites, especially YouTube and I sincerely hope there’s one person in that audience who isn’t an idiot, but I’m sure that’s asking way too much. They showed up, didn’t they?
