Popular culture : You like this blog? Here it is - the magazine you should subscribe to

Hard pill as it is for me to swallow, the other columnists are all better than me, so be sure to just get lost in the site. And remember to feed the kitty.

New on blogroll!:

Regular readers of this blog will know I’ve been away from blogging fora few days, mainly because of time spent on thelast details of The Spiritual Brain.

The blogroll (the Never a Dull Moment! sidebar to your right) is a good choice when I’m not around, and I am pleased to note the addition of several new blogs on the intelligent design controversy:

The Brites is a sendup of “the Brights”, a group of materialists (and Darwinists, needless to say) who want you to know that they are smarter than the average person.

At AcademicFreedomBlog, a guy named Don discusses the evolution-inteligent design controversies, making a number of interesting points. Given that he is not a Darwinbot, he is well advised to stay somewhat anonymous too.

A friend recommended Origins, linked in some way to Campus Crusade. It is written from a Christian religious perspective and features a number of interesting resources.

Note also a Spanish language ID site, based in Spain, Ciencia Alternativa. By the way, I understand that my book on the intelligent design controversy, By Design or by Chance? will be translated into Spanish this year.

Also, don’t forget Idea Center, the student ID site.

There! Now I will try to be back in a little while with some stories.

My other blog is the Mindful Hack, which keeps tabs on neuroscience and the mind.

If you like this blog, check out my book on the intelligent design controversy, By Design or by Chance?, or my book of essays on faith and science topics, Faith@Science: Why science needs faith in the 21st century (Winnipeg: J. Gordon Shillingford, 2001). You can read excerpts as well.

Blog policy note:Comments are permitted on this blog, but they are moderated. Fully anonymous posts and URLs posted without comment will be accepted if I think they contribute to a discussion. For best results, give your name or some idea who you are and why we should care. To Mr. Anonymous: I'm not psychic, so if you won't tell me who you are, I can't guess and don't care. To Mr. Nude World (URL): If you can't be bothered telling site visitors why they should go on to your fave site next, why should I post your comment? They're all busy people, like you. To Mr. Rudesby International and Mr. Pottymouth: I also have a tendency to delete comments that are merely offensive. Go be offensive to someone who can smack you a good one upside the head. That may provide you with a needed incentive to stop and think about what you are trying to accomplish. To Mr. Righteous but Wrong: I don't publish comments that contain known or probable factual errors. There's already enough widely repeated misinformation out there, and if you don't have the time to do your homework, I don't either. To those who write to announce that at death I will either 1) disintegrate into nothingness or 2) go to Hell by a fast post, please pester someone else. I am a Catholic in communion with the Church and haven't the time for either village atheism or aimless Jesus-hollering.
