Creation, a new film about Charles Darwin cannot get any US distributors because of fear of fundamentalist backlash: However, US distributors have resolutely passed on a film which will prove hugely divisive in a country where, according to a Gallup poll conducted in February, only 39 per cent of Americans believe in the theory of evolution. Movieguide.org, an influential site which reviews films from a Christian perspective, described Darwin as the father of eugenics and denounced him as “a racist,… Read more

So last night, Kanye proved once and for all that he has no class through a single action which demonstrated an unbelievable lack of grace.  Taylor Swift looked so demoralized and her speech had been all about feelings of being surprised to be accepted by this particular voting bloc, when he insulted her by implying plainly that she didn’t deserve the award.  It was remarkably cruel of him to do this to her. I really thought he learned his lesson… Read more

David appeals to MacIntyre to raise a really interesting question: What is your assessment of faith as the starting point of tradition constituted inquiry as understood by MacIntyre? This is accepting the standards of argument, explanation, justification internal to and partially constitutive of the extended argument that constitutes what MacIntyre calls a tradition. In this case, such faith is NOT meant simply to preserve your tradition (particularly not as currently constituted). The view is that one isn’t really part of… Read more

This last three months I’ve spent blogging, I’ve learned my away around the atheist internet and been delighted by how many wonderful resources there are, between websites, blogs, videos, discussion forums, etc.  And not only the videos but some of the video channels run by extraordinarily creative or at least patiently argumentative creators of original YouTube material have been just astoundingly impressive and genuinely exciting for me.  The rich variety of distinct voices, perspectives, and approaches, each one strong and… Read more
