I’m suspending this blog until further notice. I’ve found that I can’t keep up a reasonably-consistent stream of posts on this and my other blogs. Instead, I’m now doing occasional posts over on Catallaxy. I’ll post copies or links here in case you just want to subscribe to my posts. If you also have an interest in economics, libertarian views, and/or Australian politics, you may just want to subscribe to Catallaxy instead.

I’ll leave my existing posts here as well, and — who knows — I may eventually find time to do this more earnestly. Thanks for reading.


Is this for real?

If this story is true, it will make the US the worst of hypocrites.

I’m not going to weigh in on what — if anything — to do about Iran and their suspected nuclear weapons program. However, it strikes me as quintessentially hypocritical to use tactical nuclear weapons on a country to stop their nuclear weapons energy program… right?

Hell’s Handmaiden vs. Intelligent Design

April 2, 2006

Intelligent Design proponents are propagandising via the Internet, and their blogs are truly a sight to behold. Their posts are sometimes so galling and perplexing that I literally sit agape at my computer as I read their takes on evolution and ID.

I am at times tempted to address their posts, but given the volume it seems like an insurmountable task. Hell’s Handmaiden nonetheless does a fantastic job of tearing them to logical shreds. Here’s a collection of recent posts and responses.

If the ID issue is of concern to you, Hell’s Handmaiden and the blogs he links to and discusses are valuable additions to your feed aggregator.
