Bishop Wrong Blogs

Well here's something I never thought I'd see, the good bishop is blogging, covering important issues from the Christian version of Brokeback Mountain (“Because there’s only one man whom it’s ok for another man to love”) to ancient concepts of history. Arguably the best blog on the market.

James,
bless you too. I didn´t know about this wonderful guy NT Wrong until a divine hand guided me to your blog this evening. And I was just in the midst of a discussion about the supposed imcompability of Darwinism and theism on Chris Heard´s blog when some of the blessed NT Wrongs words fell like manna on my eyes. Take a look at Higgaion and more specifically on a thread named "Not EXPELLED, just playing hookey". Sad to see a otherwise bright guy like Chris Heard betting on a lame duck like "christian darwinism".

Excellent informative blog!!!

On a side note in response to AJ:


(This is kind of off the top of my head)

I fail to see how the evolutionary process is evil, brutal, and causes extensive suffering. Saying that makes it seem like the process itself is overnight, one is wiped out and the next day a new one comes to life in the blink of an eye. But that really isn't how the process works, and humanity itself is still evolving - while this is happening is it truly evil? As we pass on our genes are we truly suffering absolutely? I mean, one day we could very well be extinct, but we all die anyway so I don't understand why we would deem the process evil if death is promised for all. Saying it is evil or brutal is almost implying that the process is finished and we can now analyze it as a whole and determine whether it is good or bad, but that is simply not the case. But anyway, the process isn't over, it is a transition, and those best suited for the environment survive, this is a fact of life, even for us and the world we live in, so seeing that as evil, brutal, or a suffering experience is just as subjective as saying it is a good, noble, wonderful process that allowed human beings to exist - with or without a Theistic God. To make a real case against the theistic God and argument would have to be made for the ongoing process itself being evil, the process we currently experience now when we pass genes on. Maybe I am just blind, but I don't see any convincing argument that could prove otherwise, and for the record, I'm an atheist.
