arroba Email

Dr. Stephen Meyer will feature in the third hour of tomorrow’s Michael Medved show, the first of his new Science & Culture Weekly Update series. Be sure to tune in!

Today on the Medved Show, Stephen Meyer Will Discuss the Suppressed Story in the Darwin Debate - May 1, 2013 Excerpt: You'll want to catch Discovery Institute's Stephen C. Meyer on the Michael Medved show today, May 1, at 1:30 pm Pacific, 4:30 Eastern time. On the show's regular new "Science and Culture Update," Dr. Meyer will be talking about the startling disconnect between how Darwinian theory is treated in the popular media -- as established fact that only an ignoramus or denizen of the religious Dark Ages would doubt -- and how it's treated in the professional and technical science literature. http://www.evolutionnews.org/2013/05/today_on_the_me071721.html bornagain77

I realize that Nagel and his book are old news here but his book was featured on tothesource.org this week in an article by Benjamin Wiker. For those who are interested: http://www.tothesource.org/4_24_2013/4_24_2013.htm jerry
I was hoping for a discussion of Meyer's upcoming book, but it's always a pleasure to listen to him regardless, and I think his discussion of Nagel was important. Chance Ratcliff
Nagel's book was the focus of the show today: Mind and Cosmos - Why the Materialist Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature is Almost Certainly False - Thomas Nagel Excerpt: If materialism cannot accommodate consciousness and other mind-related aspects of reality, then we must abandon a purely materialist understanding of nature in general, extending to biology, evolutionary theory, and cosmology. Since minds are features of biological systems that have developed through evolution, the standard materialist version of evolutionary biology is fundamentally incomplete. And the cosmological history that led to the origin of life and the coming into existence of the conditions for evolution cannot be a merely materialist history. http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199919758.do The Heretic - Who is Thomas Nagel and why are so many of his fellow academics condemning him? - March 2013 Excerpt: Fortunately, materialism is never translated into life as it’s lived. As colleagues and friends, husbands and mothers, wives and fathers, sons and daughters, materialists never put their money where their mouth is. Nobody thinks his daughter is just molecules in motion and nothing but; nobody thinks the Holocaust was evil, but only in a relative, provisional sense. A materialist who lived his life according to his professed convictions—understanding himself to have no moral agency at all, seeing his friends and enemies and family as genetically determined robots—wouldn’t just be a materialist: He’d be a psychopath. ,,, http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/heretic_707692.html bornagain77
