  •  Defined "weirdly" is more like it (3+ / 0-)

    To stick a fork in Blade's argument, you only need to produce one Christian who holds simultaneously holds a scientifically valid belief with another belief fantastically at odds with any other scientific result.

    There are far more interesting, testable questions at the intersection of faith and naturalism.  For example, why does religiosity asymptotically trails off to a non-zero, positive number as expertise increases?  Why are there differences in belief depending on discipline? I assure you the answer isn't going to be uncovered by philosophical navel-gazing, but by rolling up your sleeves and actually doing science.

    •  Well, sure. To all of that. (2+ / 0-)

      And I have a few interesting questions of my own, in and around the area of belief vs. knowledge.

      But I'd rather stop at "bad argument" when I have the feeling that anything else is going to lead to a greater polemic.

      At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)
