Re: Osama and Everything After (Heather Hurlburt & Eli Lake)

What is plain to see now is that the Pakistani military class -which is to say that nation's most relevant class- through American funding, while guarding and growing a nuclear weapons program aimed...

"Creeping Christianity"

A thought experiment for Ms. Ziegler-Hemingway and others to consider:

Suppose that centuries ago a scientifically-advanced "Great Eastern Society" arose from Asia to thoroughly dominate the...

Free Will Evolves

Shocking that these guys didn't bring up Dan Dennett's years of fascinating and prolific work on how evolution BNS, operating over vast timescale in a strictly deterministic world does indeed create...

Re: Values Added: The Praying Field (Jeff Sharlet & Amy Sullivan)

The implications of the TOE are deeply unsettling even today. 150 years after Darwin's initial sketch, rock-hard evidence has steadily mounted. Today, EbNS is as true and reliable a body of...

Re: Values Added: The Praying Field (Jeff Sharlet & Amy Sullivan)

There is no God. It can't be stated often enough, yet it goes unsaid. Sad.

Re: Everything You Know Is Wrong (Dave Weigel & Dan Foster)

The 92nd St YMCA, to which this Cordoba Inst. is often compared, frequently hosts speakers and writers whose work is plainly hostile to aspects of Christianity. Similarly, atheists are regularly...

Re: Values Added: Sex and the Bible (David M. Carr & Jay Michaelson)

How can educated 21st century men and women take moral and intellectual guidance from these bronze-age texts written by seriously unevolved minds? We can't! Accept it.

PLEASE. Put the Bible on...

Re: Terrorism, Iran, and Underwear (Spencer Ackerman & Eli Lake)

It seems to me that Mr. Akermann is not sufficiently knowledgable on these matters to contribute an interesting point of view. Lake does well, as usual.

Re: UN Plaza: Europe-Bashing Edition

Re: The Shooting of Brian Beutler

I don't need to have my guard up 24/7 as a white guy in Harlem - I know many locals in the area (shop-keepers, old dude on the bench, etc.) and I chat and joke all the time. But there are also times...

Re: The Shooting of Brian Beutler

I'm a 6' 3" 38-year-old white guy, living in Central Harlem for 5+ years. I've never been mugged or even confronted directly.

I do wonder if my good luck has something to do with my size and my...

Re: Transcending Whiteness

You may ruefully wish that a figure like Barack Obama had come from the right, and I agree that one day soon such a "black" man will emerge from the right and lead the nation at a very high level, ...

Re: Transcending Whiteness

Liberals (particularly in the academy) may be the timid, self-loathing crowd you describe, but Barack Obama is obviously his generation's most talented political leader and thinker, and as such...

Re: The Enemy

Sadam needed to be dethroned by force and we finally did it after 9/11. We dont need any link to 9-11 or bin Laden to be glad the war was waged and his family killed.

Re: Saddam wasn't a threat!!?

There is no evidence he had anything to do with 9-11. I only wish to expose an all-too-common false argument, regurgitated here without comment, that insists he had neither the record, the will nor...

Saddam wasn't a threat!!?

I love Eli, and she's good too. Together they often have more to say than 10 other vloggers selected at random. But it I think she thoroughly botched her own question of whether Saddam had the will...

Weakest bloggingheads Ever?

Re: Bob Discovers His Jewish Roots

Call me clueless, but it seems to me that a peace-seeking, 21st Century Israeli state ought to be deemphasizing its Jewish requirements in favor of some kind of tolerant pluralism and cease...
