Values Added: Aw, Snap! Edition (Sarah Posner & Mollie Ziegler Hemingway)

It seems that the notions of 'others' and 'self' are quite dearly held by Mollie Ziegler Hemingway. 'we', 'my group', 'my church', 'people like me' .... gosh. I wonder how much of it spills over in...

Re: Science Saturday: The Greatest Diavlog on Earth

Agreed. But I do find MAPLE useful for all its symbolic math manipulation capabilities. MATLAB has still a long way to go in its symbolic math toolbox. MATHEMATICA, on the other hand, is just for...

facebook and Mickey

Bob very artfully mentioned that "some" people might just hide feeds from their "friends" on the facebook as they are not really their friends but rather mere fans.

I have a strong feeling that...

Dogs!

Lima is clearly the winner in the tricks category. Cuteness is in the eyes of the beholder. So overall, I guess Lima is the winner.

Sorry Frasier.

Re: Percontations: Spiritual Warfare

I think John started making some good points towards the end of the diavlog but did not pursue them to the fullest extent.

The first thing I liked was the way he explained Buddha's reason for...

Re: Percontations: The Diavlog of Dead Philosophers

I listened to almost the whole thing .... to me it seemed that either knowingly or unknowingly, both the speakers stayed away from talking any substance on the matter. I concluded that based on the...

Re: Science Saturday: Fie on Hooey

As far as astrology is concerned, I can assure you that there are many people who sincerely believe in the damn thing. They are not trying to deliberately reject scientific findings. Moreover, though...

Re: why should government run solar energy business?

I think the point he was trying to make was that some technologies, in their early stages, are not attractive enough for private players due to factors like cost etc. The place where he invoked intel...

Re: Science Saturday: Fie on Hooey

You totally missed the point John was trying to make. Nobody was worried that the words "astrology" would be uttered and it would destroy Science Saturdays. I think he focused on its universal and...

Re: Templeton prize

That explanation is not sound enough. One could apply this argument to almost anyone who he disagrees with. The only right way to go about dealing with people like Behe is to confront them and make...

Re: Templeton prize

I disagree with the suggestion that allowing Behe to be interviewed by a linguist is angling for the prize. I am a firm believer in evolution, but I do not get mad every time a Creationist gives an...

Re: As a non-accomodationist atheist, I stand with BHTV

What I am afraid of is that this whole incident would stop (or at least delay) any such discussion from taking place in near future. I would like to see more Creationists debating their points with...

Re: Science Saturday: Mistakes Were Made

I think its too strong an assumption that no scientist would be able to debate with Behe without being inaccessible. I am sure there would be many people interested in such a daivlog, but...
