Well, sooner than normal, some links which are well worth visiting:
- New Scientist Podcast
- Beyond Belief (new scientist subscription required)
- New Scientist Podcast (iTunes link)
- Wild Chronicles (iTunes link)
- Science @ NASA Feature Stories Podcast (iTunes link)
If you don’t have access to the full “Beyond Belief” article a lot of it is included in the podcast. I can not honestly say I am convinced that a conference looking at how science has “supplanted” God is a good thing.
Apart from anything else, this begins to create the impression “Science” is a replacement for Religious belief. Hopefully this is not the case but with more than a few of the people who contributed to this conference I am not sure. It is, as I see it, like saying bananas are a replacement for camera film. The two are totally different things.
Creating a conflict between the two is not a “GoodThingâ„¢” and simply provides more ammunition for the Religious Right to demonise science.
