New post at Talking Philosophy

This one is on whether religion makes factual claims. I'm quite happy to accept that it (often) does.

I need to write a follow-up post, though. This current one sets the stage for whether Keith Ward has a good understanding of the relationship between the sciences and the humanities, and the relationship of both to religion. I don't think so. Jerry Coyne agrees with me on this, but I think our reasons will turn out to be slightly different.

Edit: You might want to contribute to the discussion over there - in fact I encourage you to. Be warned, though, Talking Philosophy is pretty strict about civility, assuming good faith, etc.

I suppose that restraint is a good thing. There's a time and place for everything, and it's called Pharyngula. ;)
