Secret report shows how religion damages perception
« on: March 25, 2015, 07:10:54 AM »
This is a secret report written by a religious bigot about Richard Feynman's character. He is extremely hostile to Richard Feynman and sees him as a manipulative character who has his own secret agenda. It is an example of how someone's perception can be distorted by beliefs and how irrational beliefs can damage progress.

The full report about Richard Feynman is available on the same site. Every other person, who was interviewed or contributed, supported Feynman. Only this one bigot said the exact opposite of everyone else.

There are nine pages.

Quotes from the text

I have many times heard Richard Feynman actively participate in these group attacks on religion and on Republicans.

If this man is not a loyal citizen, he is extremely dangerous from the standpoint that he possesses unusual personal magnetism .... to convince them of whatever he wishes them to believe about himself...

Many of Richard Feynman's friends are extremely antirepublican and agnostic. These persons often bitterly criticized and made fun of religion and religious persons.

I believe Richard Feynman is either a Communist or very strongly pro Communist

I believe this man is a master of deception.

He is, I further believe, completely ruthless, unhampered by morals, ethics or religion.

"I would swear to these things on the bible."

it his eyes, I think he was a hypnotist.
some skepisms,
1. "I have not seen God. I have felt the invisible presence"
2. What if there is a rock in the middle of a road, a blind person is speeding towards it, ...they say that they can't see it.   Would you recommend him to keep speeding?

Shades of McCarthyim - they never quite left some people.

If true, my esteem for him grows.

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

I know the US isn't into royalty but the great man should have got a knighthood.

This is a secret report ...

I love secret reports, because they're so, you know, secret.  :-X
