Beta testing a book: Chapter 5: An open letter to religious believers on God and evil

And now… the revised version of chapter 5 of the book. It contains my “open letter on God and evil,” which has been floating around the net for more than two years, longer than any other part of this book. But that’s not all it has. The full chapter consists of:

  • The open letter
  • Notes on responses to the letter
  • A detailed look at the problems with Plantinga’s free will defense

Okay. Phew! That’s five chapters, and I plan to have ten or so in the finished book, so we’re halfway there. The next several chapters may take longer to post, though, as I plan to be focusing a lot more on my Singularity Institute work in the next few weeks, and I’ve got a LOT more work to on the chapters on science and philosophy.
