Did you watch this debate? I've been so busy I've only had a chance to listen to about 10 minutes of it--a bit of William Lane Craig (someone I respect, based on a talk he gave in my department many years ago), and a bit of Sam Harris. Fortunately, I happened to tune in to the bit where Harris says calling a communion wafer the body of Jesus is like calling a stack of pancakes the body of Elvis. Plus, there was stuff about people burying babies under fence posts to propitiate the gods. Good stuff! Apparently he ignored Craig's arguments, though...or so I've read. (And vice versa? Not sure.)
In the atheosphere, I notice much tussling these days, but it's all pretty much putting me to sleep. Have there ever been martyrs to atheism....(see here and elsewhere)? Quick, someone tell me why it matters? All the inter-atheist warfare reminds me of Spy vs. Spy from Mad Magazine.
If you have photoshop talent, maybe you'd like to change the caption to "Gnu vs. Not" and send it to me. Chuckle.
