    Tone Wars: boring.
    Carnival of Evolution: fun.

    Have you commented on/reviewed Jody Hey’s book?

      “Tone Wars: boring.
      Carnival of Evolution: fun.”
      But apparently I’m the only person who thinks that.

      Yes, I have reviewed Jody’s book; in my book, and in an unpublished (due to the editor losing the manuscript) review. Jody’s argument is basically that species are conventions and productions of the mind. While I disagree with him, he makes a solid case. Unfortunately he is merely reprising Locke’s argument, and like Locke is confusing real kinds for nominal kinds.

    No, I agree. But it makes the carnival of evolution and sciences involvment in the study of belief less and less appealing.

    A subject with a very strong internal identity which is increasingly assertive. Appealing if you are on the inside.

    I hope it is just me who is increasingly turned off from the subject, as it has much to offer.

    Time to disappear in a jaded puff of smoke in the direction of the arts.

      I truly have no idea what you just said.

    “due to the editor losing the manuscript.”

    Is that even possible these days?

    Did he leave the entire internet behind in a taxi?
