Re: Science Saturday: Primate Ethics

Well, this is the first time I've listened to de Waal and not been irritated by him. The discussion about the "selfish" origins of empathy being separate from the manner in which humans choose to...

Re: Edge Conference on the New Science of Morality

Even though I initiated this thread a month ago, I am only now getting around to listening to the presentations. During that month, Hauser's talk has been withdrawn and I am unable to find the...

Re: In the Trenches (Michelle Goldberg & Michelle Cottle)

Regarding biological clocks and the child/no-child divide, I can offer one data point. I had my children when I was 37 and 39, although I remember starting to really want kids of my own around age...

Re: Science Saturday: Who Got What Wrong? (Jerry Fodor & Elliott Sober)

Assuming that by "survive" you mean "survive to reproduce", my question to you is: more likely than whom?

Re: Science Saturday: Who Got What Wrong? (Jerry Fodor & Elliott Sober)

I stated that responding substantively to Fodor would be the equivalent of responding substantively to ID proponents not because I think their positions are equivalent (either in quality or in...

Re: Science Saturday: Who Got What Wrong? (Jerry Fodor & Elliott Sober)

Oh, really? OK, so clue me, and the multitude of others with objections to Fodor, in. How about you start by responding to the arguments Block and Kitcher make?

Re: Science Saturday: Who Got What Wrong? (Jerry Fodor & Elliott Sober)

Thank you for your valuable feedback. Unfortunately, I can't see the point of reiterating arguments others have already made quite well and relatively briefly. Summarizing them would add nothing...

Re: Science Saturday: Who Got What Wrong? (Jerry Fodor & Elliott Sober)

Here are my questions for the evolutionary biologists: is colossal hubristic self-satisfaction of the sort that Fodor exemplifies in this discussion a selected-for trait or a free-rider trait? And...

Re: Cosma Shalizi

OK. I read that. But it is statements like this from Shalizi that prompted my original question: "If identical twins experience more similar environmental influences on accent than fraternal twins,...

Re: Cosma Shalizi

Hi Clay - I have a question about the Shalizi paper that I was hoping you could answer. I am sure that somewhere within me is an economic genius just waiting for the proper nurturance so that it can...

Re: Values Added: Progressive Christianity (David Gushee & Peter Laarman)

"contempt"? "opinions"? Trying to pick a fight with me over points that I am not making won't work PK. If, on the other hand, you have something to say about the content of my comment, I am happy...

Re: Why no mention of Lawrence H. Keeley?

Thanks for the clarification. I misunderstood your post and thought you were making the opposite point, that civilization eliminates aggression over food and sex. In any event, I think Rousseau's...

Re: Values Added: Progressive Christianity (David Gushee & Peter Laarman)

This is exactly my experience. When someone today calls themselves a Christian, it is nearly impossible to know what that means about what they believe. I talk to everyone about religion, and it is...

Re: Why no mention of Lawrence H. Keeley?

Re: Bzzzzt!

Decamate's not bad, if only because it sounds appropriately violent (deck a mate). Nonacontamate sounds vaguely sexual and not sufficiently violent. And it has too many syllables. But otherwise not...

Re: Bzzzzt!

As one of our resident wordsmiths, can you please coin us a term for "cut down by an order of magnitude" that's as fun to say as decimate? I hate to give up decimate for such a clunky alternative.

Re: Science Saturday: Sex and War Edition (John Horgan & Thomas Hayden)

Wow. Dallas this morning looks like Bob's back yard. 5" and counting. But unlike NJ, the snow will all be gone from here by Saturday.

Re: Writing in the Digital Age (Susan Orlean & Kurt Andersen)

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

Great comments, Lemon. I agree that excellent commenters were a lot of what made bhtv very compelling in the early days, and Bloggin Noggin gets a lot of the credit for that, among others. The only...

Re: Bob on SOF Live

Can't listen to yet another EOG interview. Does he say anything different in this one than he has already said in every other interview? Any new or refined arguments that are more compelling than...
