Sigworthy

Quote
It is well known that thorny games such as the prisoner's dilemma can be solved if both players can credibly commit themselves to cooperating, but how can I convince you that I will cooperate when it is a dominant strategy for me to defect? (And, if you and I are game theorists, you know that I know that you know that I know that defecting is a dominant strategy.)

Quote (dvunkannon @ Jan. 14 2012,17:11)
Last night I saw the new film version of Le Carre's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. If I hadn't read the book the book and seen the BBC mini-series, it would have been incomprehensible, and still worth seeing.

But the reason for bringing it up here is that one of the minor characters, Peter Guillam (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), looks exactly like the DI Fellow Dr Stephen Meyer.

(I was going to make a joke about Dembski playing Karla when I realized that Karla _is_ Dembski.)

I want to see it!

That made me think of something: if a movie (or more appropriately, a miniseries) were to be made about the whole evo-ID fight, which actors would you choose to play which personalities on our side and the IDists'? Just for fun, let's say that it can be any actor from any era. (I'm sorry, but so many "actors" today just suck.)

For William Dembski, I would choose a 1980s Dwight Schultz. :)

Our very own Jeannot is a Dembski look-alike, poor guy. Except he's French so he'd never wear that sweater.

There's  a guy in the physical geography dept in the uni here in Frankfurt who's a dead ringer for Meyer, too.

Just FYI - I'm not AWOL or ignoring you guys - we're moving. Signing a lease February 1 in the region where I work. We have been fixing up Barky's house to sell.

That, and I'm getting a new office. :)

I might have another part time position, an archivist position (at last!;) temporarily. So that will make three jobs, plus the freelance work.

But I'm still around!

No neighbors - at least not very close. We'll have some wooded land. :) T'will be dark and quiet - maybe dark enough for me to check out some telescopes from the Astronomical Soc.

I must admit I'm dying to see the faces of Family Sasquatch when we haul out the moving van next week. Rev. Barky thinks they may be happy, but they have had so much invested in fighting with us that I think they will be pissed to see us go (and to learn where we are going - a very nice area). They always got pissy whenever we went on vacation - we were not there to be a target. I found that, um, more indicative of their forcing intimacy than any distaste for us.

I'm sure the folks at UD are concerned:

Quote
According to the new study of almost 200,000 people in 11 European countries, people who are religious have higher self-esteem and better psychological adjustment than the non-religious only in countries where belief in religion is common. In more secular societies, the religious and the non-religious are equally well-off.

"The results suggest that religiosity, albeit a potent force, confers benefits by riding on cultural values," study researcher Jochen Gebauer of Humboldt University in Berlin and colleagues wrote online Jan. 5 in the journal Psychological Science.

Many studies have shown benefits to religion, from an increase in self-control to greater happiness among the faithful. But where these benefits come from is still an open question. It could be something related to religion or religious teachings; alternatively, the social side of religion might play a role. For example, a December 2010 study published in the journal American Sociological Review found that it's the social networks fostered by attending religious services that make religious people more satisfied with their lives.


No wonder I feel so damn good about myself!

I had recalled that there was a thread devoted to Paul Nelson, but I could not find it with the search function.

A few here might be interested that Paul is the first, and apparently only, faculty member for the "Master of Arts in Science and Religion" (MASR) program at Biola.
A sample of courses;
Quote
CSSR 530 – Darwin, Evolution, & Design

A survey of the issues and ideas involved in relating classical Darwinian and contemporary evolutionary models with a biblical worldview. Special emphasis is given to controversies that are used by skeptics to call Christian theism into question.

CSSR 631 – Modern Physics, Cosmology, & Design

A survey of the issues and ideas involved in relating modern physics and astronomy to a biblical worldview. Special emphasis is given to controversies that are used by skeptics to call Christian theism into question.

CSSR 652 – Human Origins Seminar

An in-depth focus on the current archaeological, anthropological, and biochemical evidence related to the debate on human origins.

CSSR 653 – Origins of Life Seminar

A detailed review of the current evidence, models and mechanisms relating to chemical evolution and the origin of life.



In all honesty, I am far more qualified than Paul.   :D
(Except for that young earth creationist problem he has).

In other academic news, a press release from Arizona State boasted about their new hire, PT Meister Reed Cartwright.

Bravo!

On that page at the Biola site it says:

"Course Objectives / Learning Outcomes

After successfully completing this course students will have:

   Summarized recent scientific advances in human-origins research
   Explained the major ideas in human evolution
   Critically evaluated the human evolutionary paradigm
   Differentiated between various approaches used by Christians to integrate the biblical and scientific accounts of humanity's origin
   Critically evaluated Christian human origins models from scientific and biblical perspective"  (my emphasis)

In other words, the students will learn how to spew ridiculous, dishonest bullshit to integrate the biblical and scientific accounts of humanity's origin fool themselves and other gullible sheep into thinking that their fairy tale religious beliefs can be legitimately mixed with, or completely supported by, scientific reality.

These are pretty funny:

"Prerequisites

None

Relation to Curriculum

M.A. Science and Religion elective.

Final Examination

No"

I'm sure that they prefer students who have little to no previous science education. It's much easier to brainwash them that way.

-12C at noon, wonderful...

Just make sure the front-to-back ratio stays on the right side of the scale.

The fundamental choice to be made, given the available information, is not whether chance provides a better explanation than design, but whether natural laws provide a better explanation than a design.

UD's way of organising comments is a mess; it's logical but not convenient to follow.

I love the way the preview pane responds instantly to typing though, including html edits. No messing about with previews and hitting the 'post' button when you meant 'preview'.

My new digs. I got snookered into completing a book review on short notice this week, plus putting together an application for a scholarship to a Air 'n' Space Museum conference due today, plus working both jobs, plus packing. Ahhhh! But here we are, with delivered pizza and drinks in our new place, plus two freaked out cats. It's so quiet you can hear the deer exhale! :)

Sweet!

What's the scholarship to the Air n Space Museum conference all about? Just curious since they (well...the Udvar Hazy Center at Dulles and the Main center in DC) are in my backyard.
