Who’s Being Anti-Science Now?

Who’s Being Anti-Science Now?

This week’s edition of Contentious Questions (Because some questions just are that way): They say that Christianity is anti-science. I wonder who’s really being anti-science. See also my related article at The Stream. It includes a list of references for those who want to know more, since what I’m diving into here is just a hint of the whole story, which fills entire volumes if told in its entirety.

Fine-Tuning and the Mistaken Atheists’ “God’s Eye View”

Fine-Tuning and the Mistaken Atheists’ “God’s Eye View”

It’s been too long since I’ve done a good old-fashioned fisking. Today, though, I ran across an article by a pair of apparent geniuses writing about the fine-tuning argument for God, unfortunately without knowing anything of what they were writing about. So here goes. These very bright gentleman are: Jérémie Harris, a Ph.D. student in quantum photonics under the Canada Excellence Research Chair in quantum nonlinear optics, at the Max Planck University of Ottawa Centre for Extreme and Quantum Photonics….

Book Review Someone who knows something faith and science had better do it, I thought, so I guess I’ll read Dan Brown’s latest novel. Pardon my reluctance, but I knew something about Brown’s reputation as a writer. It’s called Origin: A Novel.

A Science Author’s Carelessness Toward Truth, and What It Might Represent

A Science Author’s Carelessness Toward Truth, and What It Might Represent

Yesterday I wrote about massive confusion present in the first half page of Shawn Otto’s book The War on Science. Today I asked myself whether I’d jumped off some cliff of irresponsibility by judging a book by practically less than its cover. I didn’t. I didn’t judge the book at all, really. But I did judge its author, and I don’t think there’s anything irresponsible in it at all. I’ve also got some thought about why that judgment matters. You…
