Cheap Thinks!

Woo hoo!

To incredibly nerdy people like me, who think that philosophy is fun, there's great news! Synthese, An International Journal for Epistemology, Methodology and Philosophy of Science has an entire volume dedicated to "Evolution and Its Rivals." And what a lineup it has:

"Introduction" by Glenn Branch

"Can’t philosophers tell the difference between science and religion?: Demarcation revisited" by Robert T. Pennock

"Are creationists rational?" by John S. Wilkins

"Foiling the Black Knight" by Kelly C. Smith

"Information theory, evolutionary computation, and Dembski’s 'complex specified information'” by Wesley Elsberry and Jeffrey Shallit

"Design and its discontents" by Bruce H. Weber

"The science question in intelligent design" Sahotra Sarkar

"Intelligent design in theological perspective" by Niall Shanks and Keith Green

"The non-epistemology of intelligent design: its implications for public policy" by Barbara Forrest

"Evolution and atheism: Has Griffin reconciled science and religion?" by James H. Fetzer

What's better is that there is free access ... but only until December 31, 2010!

Better get over there and get your free holiday reading!

Wow! Christmas comes early!
Wow! Christmas comes early!

And it's brought to you by an albino gorilla in a Santa suit!
Is that the same James H. Fetzer who advocates 9/11 conspiracy theories?
Okay, the last one is even better. He's responding to a paper by David Ray Griffin, another 9/11 conspiracy theorist.

So it sounds like the conspiracy theorist community is having its own little science-religion debate.
Hey, thanks for the great reads. They're going on my Kindle immediately.
