Go to: The Saturday Interview: A caveman's logic

This "Caveman Logic" article reminds me of Michael Shermer's Paternicity and Agenticity articles from Scientific American.

A good read.

This is very confusing. He wants to pay 20k to be made to look like an idiot when he can do it for free on youtube? However, Richard Dawkins is only willing to make him look stupid for at least 100k donated to his foundation? It is difficult enough to figure out what creationist are thinking without having money in the picture.

Go to: New Bus Campaign

Gwiss's Avatar Jump to comment 1197 by Gwiss

A really good bus campaign add would be to have Richard Dawkins, laying really elegant on bed like the Sarah Jessica Parker bus add on "Sex and the City", and the slogan can appear in a silhouette of a brain that says "It's whats on the inside that counts."

LOL Thats just my thought.

Go to: Science can't explain the big bang - there is still scope for a creator

Which God are they talking about?

Either way, this seems more like an argument for deism; deism in school would take all but a minute to explain, and all but a minute to refute. There is of course a lack of evidence in support of that claim and the infinite regression that arises with such a proposition makes it a clear dilemma.

Why not teach Deism in school? Yet approach it the same way you would any form of hypothesis. It would get crushed, but better teach the kids then about the fragility of deistic claims rather then letting them get older to find out.
