The great thing — or depending on how one looks at it, not so great thing — about online journals is the accountability it provides to keep it updated. I haven’t posted since Friday and I know my site has gotten a couple hundred hits since then, looking for new content.
I have a probing post planned (final reflections from Secrets of the Vine), but I haven’t dove into it fully in my mind yet, so it will have to wait for now.
But if you want an interesting read to hold you over, check out the cover article of Wired magazine (The Crusade Against Evolution) here: http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/12.10/evolution.html.
I subscribed to the magazine recently and feel asleep reading the feature article tonight while watching ESPN Sunday night football. I had no idea the push for intelligent design was making its way back into schools.
For those of you who want to read some really wacky stuff that’s kinda related to this whole field, check out http://www.kurzweilai.net. It’s straight up secular humanist thinking, but it sure is fascinating to see some of the conversations our nation’s brightest are having on both our roots and futures as humans.
