One response to “TED RADIO HOUR: 7 Deadly Sins

  1. I really enjoyed listening to this podcast about the 7 deadly sins. I do agree that many movie characters are based on deadly sins. Lust is one of the most deadly sins according to the podcast. Charlie and Character and surprisingly SpongeBob Squarepants are part of the 7 deadly sins. I also do agree that lust is one the biggest sins according to the testament, and the bible. “Keep your hands off your neighbors property” according to the sexual monogamy. Christopher really opened my eyes about lust and the monogamy about it. Christopher argues that our ancestors were sexual omnivores and were very alike in many ways. His point was indeed that we are designed to be lustful animals and promiscuous. Christopher’s talk really opened my eyes on how people really are and look at their sexuality depending on their social behavior or intimacy. In all, this podcast was by far one of my favorites from TED talk.
