New Book on Methodological Naturalism in Science

Posted 25 Feb 2017 at 01:25 UTC by johnnyb

I just published a book titled Naturalism and Its Alternatives in Scientific Methodologies which deals with whether Methodological Naturalism is helpful or hurtful to science, what alternatives could be used, and what the benefits and problems of those approaches might be. The book also ended with a chapter on some fields which are already benefitting from alternatives to methodological naturalism.

This book is based on a conference, the videos of which you can view here.

The Wreck of the Edmund Kuro5hin

Posted 3 May 2016 at 15:45 UTC by badvogato

The legend lives on from trolltalk on down
Of the big net they call Intar Webby
The net, it is said, never gives up her dead
When the posts of October turn gloomy.
With a load of whiny diaries - 26,000 tons more
Than the Edmund Kuro5hin weighed empty

When the trolls of October came early

The ship was the pride of the USian side
Coming back from some server in Wisconson
As the big Scoop sites go it was bigger than most
With a crew and the Captain well seasoned.
