Disproving Evolution – Part 2 – DNA, Cats and Dogs

[Index of series posts] Continuing the rebuttal of the article,  “9 Scientific Facts Prove that “The Theory of Evolution” is wrong.” I read the next sentence, and I knew it’d consume the whole post. [Read more…]

WALL OF TEXT

Over at the AXP blog, a theistic commenter made a post that might qualify as a “wall of text”, in all the implicated glory. I thought I’d go through and add to the wall, but inserting my thoughts as I went along. [Read more…]

PERSONAL: Taking off for the day.

Hey all.  I feel bad after being gone all weekend, but today’s therapy session was pretty intense.  I’m, frankly, in no condition to keep reading the news today and can’t really find the motivation.  I’m going to take some time and see you all tomorrow. Leave happiness in the comments. [Read more…]

Quick thoughts on “the will to power.”

The speaker at Oasis on Sunday, an ex-clergy, alluded to the frequently used apologist line “life is either about the power of love or the love of power.”  More frequently you’ll hear it as “without god, all that’s left is the will to power.”  I was glad he was at Oasis and don’t want to take [Read More…]

EMAILS: Does anybody have tips on secular homeschooling?

I got this message today: Do you know anyone who is knowledgeable in secular homeschooling? My friends son has Aspberger’s and the bullying has become physical on top of mental.

ATHEISM: Atheist Ireland denounces PZ Myers.

I see on Hemant’s blog that Atheist Ireland has formally disassociated itself from blogger PZ Myers. Atheist Ireland is publicly dissociating itself from the hurtful and dehumanising, hateful and violent, unjust and defamatory rhetoric of the atheist blogger PZ Myers. The final of many, many straws were his latest smear that Ayaan Hirsi Ali is ‘happily [Read More…]

Free Will via Word Games

I haven’t hidden the fact that I consider myself a “determinist”, when it comes to free will. It seems to me that the difference between my position, and the “compatibilist”, is largely one of definitions, and we actually essentially hold the same position. What they call “free will” I call deterministic decision making. That’s not [Read More…]

Stopping off in Arkansas.

Hey everybody.  We stayed with my parents last night and will be making the rest of the trip home today: It’s so peaceful after a crazy conference, which I’ve been at since Wednesday.  I have so much I want to talk about, but for now I just want to get some rest, have a beer [Read More…]

Just checking in, and an excerpt from my talk tonight.

Hey everybody.  I’m having a blast here in Memphis.  I’ve met some really cool fans and a slew of readers of the blog.  The debate workshop with Matt Dillahunty and Jamilla Bey was a real hoot and tonight I give my talk.
