News Bits, Pinker and Goldberg, Chaotic Inflation…
Steven Pinker and Rebecca Goldstein have a conversation on “The Long Reach of Reason.” Excellent history, excellent philosophy.
My favorite new podcast: Non-Theology.
Here’s something to pull out during your internet debates: “How to Argue Like Stalin.”
It’s about time… To end ‘rape culture’ hysteria. I couldn’t agree more.
Excellent post from Hector Avalos on William Lane Craig, ‘Selective Supernaturalism,’ and how to reason about historical evidence. Once again, this is well worth keeping in “My favorites” for reference during debate.
I have had a very good discussion on the ethics of abortion with a reader of mine, Ann, in the comments section of my post “Abortion, Beating Hearts, and Bacteria.” We disagree on some things, but I think she’s very intelligent and I respect her position. I may blog a little more on abortion in the future.
