Secular buddhism and bad science

June 10th, 2011 · 2 Comments

The issue of secular buddhism is important because it shows how the influence of bad science is becoming more and more dominant. You would think that people in a tradition as potent as that of buddhism could stand up to scientism and preserve the basics of their subject. But the onset of ‘secular buddhism’ shows […]

Dawkins’ narrowed vision

Kevin Myers: Myth of Dawkins as an intolerant, atheist crusader is just that — mythRichard Dawkins – portrayed as an austere, proselytising dogmatist despite being nothing of the sort Thursday June 09 2011 RICHARD Dawkins is thricefold famous: once for his espousal of the gene as being the primary unit of life, rather than the […]

“The Search for the Historical Adam”

June 7th, 2011 · No Comments

http://www.biologos.org/blog/biologos-and-the-june-2011-christianity-today-cover-story/ This kind of thinking shows the pathetic plight of Xtian confusion. And yet the question could be perfectly natural, and perfectly simple: the ‘historical’ adam is simply the first appearance of the homo sapiens sapiens type in the transition to modern man. But the absurd effort to buttress the Bible’s Genesis account is tiresome […]

More on accomodationism

May 29th, 2011 · No Comments

The (Lack Of) Conflict Between Science and Religion in College Students Commentary: http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2011/05/29/another-study-supposedly-proving-sciencefaith-accommodation/ Let’s see Xtian accomodationists (who use the term ‘religion’ to refer to their own religion) try their tactics with Buddhism, with respect to Xtianity, and with respect to science. Buddhists are the other problem for these accomodationists.

Sam Harris on accomodationism

May 17th, 2011 · No Comments

http://richarddawkins.net/articles/626387-sam-harris-on-accommodationism This debate is almost completely useless. The real issue is that the ‘new atheism’ is the wrong vehicle to challenge religion. Many science types, like Mooney, sense this and bring in the issue of accomodationism. But the fact remains that the new atheism will backfire and, if anything, restrengthen Xtian belief. The first thing […]

Hawking as Science Pope

May 16th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Hawking’s new stance is a new dogmatism. He should know (but he denounced philosophy as superfluous) that there is no way to prove anything about an afterlife, and in fact the state of physics suggests a host of future venues for the discovery of the larger dimension of the organism beyond space and time, so […]

ID footholds in schools Intelligent Design Making Headway into Texas Public Schools…note the link to Johnson’s Darwin on Trial. Why has the biological community abdicated to people like Johnson. This book should have been written by a scientist three decades ago (and in fact was). Btw, this book doesn’t even mention ID. Thus note, …. […]

Or are mainstream religions just more familiar Greta Christina is derailing with this trend toward extreme statements, new atheists please note (although, no dobut, they would be in the cheering gallery, mostly).

Too much heat, not enough light in the creationism warThe near hysterical way in which intelligent design is treated online only suits those who seek to politicise evolution Creationists and the ID lobby are hardly the full problem: the contribution of Darwin ideologists trying to monopolize the idea of science for evolution drives dissent, as […]
