As you could guess from the long blogroll at the bottom of A Theory of Mind, I read a lot online. I use Twitter (@ecsalomon) to post links to interesting things as I come across them, but I’d like to highlight the most relevant and interesting things I read each week here. Every Saturday, I’ll post a list of the blog posts, news stories, and other media that really captured my attention and might also interest readers of this blog.
Here at this week’s Things Worth Reading:

Ghostbusting with Gozer — Cris Campbell of Genealogy of Religion explains how learning about others’ beliefs can help us better contextualize all belief, including our own.
