The New York Times, Jerry Coyne and Russell Blackford on the Gnu Atheists - NY Times, Jerry Coyne, Russell Blackford - NY Times, WEIT, Metamagican and the Hellfire Club By NY TIMES, JERRY COYNE, RUSSELL BLACKFORD - NY TIMES, WEIT, METAMAGICAN AND THE HELLFIRE CLUB Added: Sunday, 03 October 2010 at 6:49 PM [Update 04-Oct] via Russell Blackford More on CFI, with some actual information for a change Ophelia Benson - Butterflies and Wheels I’ve said more than once that I don’t have a firm opinion about who is more right (or wrong) in the dispute between the Center for Inquiry and its founder and former director Paul Kurtz. I still don’t, but one thing I do think is that when the dispute gets into a major media outlet, the reporting is incomplete. I have an opportunity to rectify that a little, because I saw something Barry Karr said on Facebook this morning that clarified or expanded a couple of points. Here is the Facebook comment: PK can be in the building M-F 9-5 anytime he wants and for any events. ...

Debunking Christianity Talking to a Brick Wall After the view from the foothills (in my first volume of diaries), and as we await the view from the Olympian heights (Blair's memoir will follow Mandelson's in September), comes the view from the focus group. As with John O'Farrell's Things Can Only Get Better, the story begins in Battersea Constituency Labour Party in the mid-1980s. Deborah Mattinson, a young advertising executive, attends her first branch meeting and is horrified to find that it consists of a handful of freaky males, obsessing about process rather than practical action, and generally out of touch with the community they aspire to serve. A nationwide survey of Labour Party members suggested that the problem was not confined to Battersea.

Or, to put it another way, "basically they were all a bit weird".

Rationally Speaking Atheist Movies Ajita Kamal on the "arrogance" of Richard Dawkins Over at the Nirmukta site (which you really should bookmark), Ajita Kamal has a nice post about Richard Dawkins' supposed "arrogance". After putting into perspective one incident relating to Dawkins, Kamal observes: There is a very important role that anger, ridicule and passion play in any social movement. While intellectual understanding is key to a movement that is well-grounded, it is the primary emotions that provide the impetus for social organization. That's exactly right. As Kamal says, passion provides the impetus for social organisation. Actually, Kamal's post is full of good stuff ... like this: As you may well know, one of the most important functions of religion is to provide a common cultural ground to enable a common morality and social code to bring together people and form a functioning and content community. Exactly right. And see this ... Quite so.
