Why Plantinga Needs a Math Lesson on Materialism
In a recent New York Times interview , philosopher of religion Alvin Plantinga goes through an involved discussion about how evolution doesn't guarantee that our beliefs are true. This is absolutely a valid concern ... and, in fact, I know of no atheist who...

Actually, on http://patreon.com/kiri, if you want to help support my artistic endeavors and snag songs, all songs I sing (That aren't already on my soundcloud) are available for download for anyone who pays $3 or more a month. Aim is to release at least 2 a month so that's at least 2 songs a month for only 3 bucks. Can cancel any time.

I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but I figured I'd throw it out there just in case it would be something you're interested in?

I had a really cool cousin. He married an asshole, but that happens.
I married an asshole who would put up with me for 32 years!
(if she sees this one, I'll break ANOTHER cast iron skillet on my head (literally), though the first one was a joke went wrong when her wrist snapped).

Our society today has a problem. A self-destructive problem.
Multiple interests pay on to play. They're divorcing discourse to violence.
Indeed, tonight, my wife and I viewed a program, we had diverse opinions o the program.

My essay in the newly-released Ender's Game & Philosophy: The Logic Gate is Down focuses on how one's perspective determines how that person deals with conflict, with related discussions of empathy and game theory!
