Darwinism and academic culture: Noticing the growing uproar

A friend writes to say that this exchange between Plantinga and Dennett at a recent American Philosophical Association conference "contains a lot of back and forth about intelligent design in general, and Mike Behe in particular. There's a heavy "ships passing in the night" element to the discussion, but it's interesting nonetheless."

You mean that th philosophers, like - actually - noticed the growing uproar?

I have just been urged by a colleague to deal with some "evolutionary psychology" nonsense about why prehistoric cave women supposedly loved shopping.

Sure, I will get to it, when I get through all the current activities around saving money in a recession by not shopping.

Another friend comments, that Plantinga insists that there is no conflict between Christianity and science, but that there is one between materialism/naturalism (= physical nature is everything) and science.

My friend was struck by how irrelevant and uninteresting materialist philosopher Dennett's comments were.
Well, I am hardly surprised. And how about this trade!
