    Today’s New York Times “Darwinism” piece is just out-and-out superb. It’s all about scientists’ individual struggles with faith. No ID and no snark. Absolutely worth a read (especially for the scientists out there).

    Thanks for the link. Gatto spoke of Collins in the underground history of American Ed (chapter 14i, I think).

    The C.S. Lewis book is the first of his that I bought and read outside of the Chronicles of Narnia. Until I saw and bought Mere Christianity, I neither knew he had written other books or that he had been a Christian.

    (Without snark) It is a good read. And whether or not you agreed with his premise, you would probably have a better understanding of why some folks hold what seem to be irrational beliefs.

    Lewis is my favorite all-time author. Mere Christianity is very good, and the Screwtape Letters even better. The space books are also worth a read– like Narnia for adults.

    I have a much longer list and he is among my favourite authors. Andrea knows she’s not allowed to sell any of his ooks in yards sales. I’ve never seen the space trilogy in the store, so I’ve never picked them up.

    Its a poor series of articles – about the equivalent of the ABJ series regarding homeschooling. In other words, its pure propaganda.

    Yeah, I thought it was WAY too positive a view of ID. Flat-earthers, all.
