Default Re: Science Saturday: Purposes and Futures (Robert Wright & Eliezer Yudkowsky)

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about regarding Bob and Eliezer's conduct during the diavlog. It seemed to me like two intellectuals debating a complex topic, both were frustrated at times, both found humor in it at times. I think that their candor was pure bloggingheads. I can't say I'm clear enough on all the subjects to make perfect sense of everything, but I can say that Bob's arguments for "purpose" have swayed me a bit. I'm not anywhere near as sympathetic and moderate about religious belief as Bob, I certainly don't think his "purpose" should be equated with divinity, but It's been enough to cause disagreement between my father and me (he refuses to accept any evidence of directionality, and sounds much like Michael Shermer in his refutation of Nonzero).
