From UNZ, alternative media:
The Jerry Coyne Retirement
Jerry Coyne, an eminent evolutionary geneticist and all around public intellectual, is retiring, and has posted a bitter sweet and hopeful farewell letter to his conventional scientific career. For the general public Coyne is probably more famous as a New Atheist, though Coyne is actually a vocal atheist of long standing. His most recent book was on that topic, Faith Versus Fact: Why Science and Religion Are Incompatible. I’m an atheist, but on the balance I demur form many of his positions in regards to religion and science. More precisely, I am quite willing to defend atheism and dismiss religion, but on philosophical or meta-scientific grounds, not scientific grounds as such. More.
We doubt Coyne is retiring from blogging.
By the way, what the heck is “alternative” media? Isn’t the whole point of media to be an alternative to announcements from the government or something?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
If not, cancel all subscriptions now. Why pay extra for more of the same?
