Here are some things I found interesting in the last few weeks. Some of it is as old as last month, but that doesn’t make it outdated! I am actually having quite a problem keeping up with things these days. So many interesting things to do! I have a number of other things I need to show some link love to, but for now I need to go to bed. I do have to work tomorrow, you know...
New Blogs Or Blogs That Are New to Me
Education, Scholarship, and Such
- Bock and Wallace on Religious Intolerance in the Academy
- On Confessional and Secular Biblical Scholarship
- Faith and Reason in the Academy
- Should we call for biblical studies to be reformed? I’ve had this one on my "to read" list for several weeks. The post made some good points and I enjoyed it, but I was expecting more from the comments. I found the following statement in the comments to be quite a hoot: "The physical sciences are an example of this; it affects all other scholarly investigation on some level. It would be utter folly to deny basic conclusions of physics, chemistry and the like. And, simply said, they allow no space for the miraculous." Since when did science decide it had it all figured out? I am losing my faith in science. When it can go beyond proving things that are and proves things that could not possibly be (all based on theoretical constructs that it has no mechanism to actually observe), then perhaps that statement could be true.
