We went to see Jordan Peterson and Dave Rubin in Calgary earlier this week - that sounds great. What was it like?
I'd love to see Peterson and Dave Rubin live! I think one of their shows is up on YouTube but I haven't clicked on it yet.
I have liked Dave Rubin on Face Book, tho.
I got something on my home page from him about him doing a stand up show in Salt Lake City. So I left this comment:
"A gay Jew in Salt Lake City - how well is that gonna go? XD Only joking, all the best from across the pond. "
He must've seen it and liked because a couple hours later his page invited me to be a top fan, so I accepted.
Rubin comes across as a very down to earth, easy-going guy. He is a liberal in the true sense of the word, left-leaning but he's found himself closer to the right as the left goes bat-shit and sprints further and further to the left.
I love his interview series The Rubin Report. He lets his guest speak. He doesn't set out to trip them up (like Cathy Newman), he queries points but lets them answer.
Did Rubin do stand up comedy when you saw him? I've never seen him do that.
I do find it odd when such intelligent people cling to the religious belief though - me too, but I'm not sure Peterson does that.
He uses biblical stories as metaphor and as something we can learn from. He says that he doesn't believe in God but nevertheless acts as if God exists. When Sam Harris tried to nail some things down and asked Peterson whether he believed Christ rose from the dead, Peterson wouldn't directly answer. Peterson said something like "it depends on what you mean" XD
I like Peterson and fully agree with him about the political dangers he highlights but his response to Harris was ridiculous! XD
