In this sermon to head-masters/mistresses, Wright touches on quite a few important concerns – especially for our time. In particular, he focuses on at least two examples of foolishness ( 1) economic foolishness demonstrated in the current ‘crisis’, and 2) the foolishness of the so-called ‘evolution-creation debate’) and the need for wisdom. Good stuff, Bishop.
Here. Interesting stuff…
Here Gould threatens a ‘knuckle-rapping’ to both theists and atheists who would try to use science (in general) or the theory of evolution by natural selection (in particular) to butress their worldview.
People familiar with Gould will detect the scent of N.O.M.A. (Nonoverlapping Magesteria – don’t ask me why it’s not N.M. or N.O.M.) in this, but it still seems to make some good points… Continue reading “gould: science a natural venture”

I think we both left having heard little or nothing we hadn’t heard before, but nonetheless having enjoyed watching it all unfold.
What follows is not a full, detailed review of the debate, but (in all truthfulness) rather various impressions I’ll share (on my way to bed)… Continue reading “craig cooke debate: impressions”
Many books are on my desk at the moment. Books for my theological study, and books for my personal interest. I have too many books on my desk. I cannot read them all…
Yet this did not prevent me from picking up 7 more books on our recent trip to the states… Continue reading “recent book purchase”
I’ve enjoyed the few articles I’ve skimmed at this blog called “Just Thomism”.
I found this post having to do with atheism, theism, evolution and science(s) of particular interest.
Here’s a quote…
It is mere historical chance that popular theism did not end up insisting that God could only exist in an evolutionary world, where all matter had been developing to the point where man could emerge at last- At last! man! prepared for by all the ages! Who all creation leads up to, just as it says in the book of Genesis!
This is one of many interesting philosophical reflections (and certainly not necessarily the best) in basically each and every post. We often don’t think about how we think; observe how we observe; ponder how we ponder; distinguish how we distinguish; wonder how we wonder; know how we know; ‘etc.’ how we ‘etc.’
Happy browsing… (and thinking)
