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…]

PERSONAL: I’m in Memphis.

Here I am making my move on Russell: [Read More…]

GAY RIGHTS: Indiana governor changes gears, won’t give up on anti-gay bill.

I just got to the Dallas airport and popped open my news feed only to see Mike Pence has defiantly pulled a 180. In a press conference that lasted all of 34 second, frustrated with the blowback Indiana has received over its RFRA, Pence said the only clarification needed was to say that if companies [Read More…]
