Irtiqa

I often rant on science and religion here, and one subset of science and religion issues I have a special interest in is how such matters play out in an Islamic context.

If you happen to have an interest in science and religion in Islam, I highly recommend Salman Hameed’s Irtiqa blog. Hameed is an astronomer teaching at Hampshire College, who comes from a Pakistani background. He also has his ear to the ground concerning a wide variety of pseudoscientific nonsense in the Islamic world, and regularly provides some of the sanest commentary on Islam and science to be found.
