Weekend Wrap-Up

Dr. Cornelius Hunter conducts a fascinating interview about the failure of Darwin's predictions. Dr. Hunter has written several books, including Darwin's God: Evolution and the Problem of Evil, Science's Blind Spot: The Unseen Religion of Scientific Naturalism, and Darwin's Proof: The Triumph of Religion over Science. I haven't read any of those books, but they look very interesting.

Physicists Calculate Number of Universes in the Multiverse. Pray tell, where is the evidence of this "Multiverse?" Gosh, if Intelligent Design ain't science, what the heck is this stuff?

A Darwin/I.D. Debate: Who Won?
: Luke "The Common Sense Atheist" watches a debate between Christian philosopher William Lane Craig and biologist Francisco Ayala about the viability of Intelligent Design. Who won, according to Luke? Craig! Listen here.

A Compilation of Francis Collins Crap: “People increasingly ask me about Francis Collins’s opposition of ID and what to make of it. The short answer is, 'Though a Christian, Collins is a thorough-going Darwinist, implacably opposes ID, asserts that it has been discredited scientifically, yet gives little evidence of understanding ID’s main arguments and refuses to engage proponents of ID in public discourse.' For the longer answer, see the following replies to Collins by ID proponents…”

Intelligence Squared Hosts a Debate over Catholicism. The debate motion was: “The Catholic church is a force for good in the world.” The audience voted before the debate began: 678 people were in favor of the church, 1102 were against it. But after the debate, they voted again. What happened? A massive 410 people changed their mind from supporting the Catholic Church to being against it. H/T: Luke.

9/11 All Over Again: "Nidal Hasan gave numerous indications to numerous individuals of his hostility and lack of loyalty to the United States, and even of his support for terrorism against the United States, but, like Col. Terry Lee whose TV interview I linked the other day, while they would disagree with him and criticize him (this was the 'harassment' of which he complained), none of them did anything about it…And so Nidal was remained ensconced in the U.S. Army, where he was at liberty to carry out a mass murder of unarmed soldiers who had been waiting for medical exams."

Nidal Malik Hasan & Jason Rodrigeuz: Two More Examples Of How Game Can Save Lives
: Yes, that's the actual headline from Obsidian's new essay. And I love the last line: "Game just may be the Last Best Hope for the World." Wow!

I also updated my essay, A Game Debate with Obsidian.
