While great minds think alike, sometimes I think that one so-so mind and one great mind can also do the same. By the way, RJS is the great mind in this analogy.
I saw that Thursday she had a post on an interview with Sam Harris, who is out promoting his new book, The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values. This book has been getting a lot of attention as you might expect, and while I think Sam Harris and the book’s title are being way too grandiose, I do believe we will find something from this line of thinking. Of course, a subtitle about how science can provide a nugget or two to an ongoing discussion probably won’t drive up sales.
Anyway, below is the link to RJS’ post on Jesus Creed (http://www.patheos.com/community/jesuscreed/2010/10/14/the-moral-landscape-rjs/) and my recent post on the limits of science (https://scienceandtheology.wordpress.com/2010/10/15/the-limits-of-science-and-its-relationship-to-religion/).
