Given that Objectivists have an appreciation for the role of philosophy, I thought this blog post might be of interest.

A new book edited by J. P. Moreland is out, entitled Debating Christian Theism
It looks good, alternating chapters supporting and defending Christianity.

Anarchists who identify themselves as agreeing with Objectivism's fundamentals but not its politics mistakenly think that they have a rock-solid argument for why the state must necessarily aggress, even if the monopoly government is constitutionally limited to upholding rights and is freely elected.

As some regulars here know, a complaint that is made of today’s Objectivist movement is that it does not have much to say about certain topics, or does so only intermittently.

As an unapologetic dinosaur I spend a lot of time in despair over Generation Airhead—that is, just about all "people" under 30, aliens in human guise who don't read, can't speak, and shuffle around like zombies to the jungle beat of headbanging in their iPods. With what unmitigated astonishment and pleasure, then, did I take in Te Koki School of Music's (under-30s, students) presentation of Verdi's Il Corsaro on Sunday afternoon. For once, Generation Airhead's favoured accolade, "awesome," could be employed with impunity.

From Apollo 11 to Martian Missions
On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made those historic first footprints on the Moon. But the ensuing decades have been frustrating to those who assumed that Apollo 11 would lead to permanent lunar bases and colonies on Mars.

I expected the Zimmerman verdict to go the other way. I expect the worst in all things in this abominably inverted pomo-world where Pamela Geller is barred from Britain while Islamofilth is allowed to run amok, self-defence is murder, murder is self-defence, perpetrators are victims, victims are perpetrators, justice is about "heart" rather than facts—and "heart" decrees that the white guy is always in the wrong and always a racist.
