Pandasthumb.org featured a book review today
from the president of the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science,
and organization I had never heard of. Generally, I shy away from such things, since I like to think of religion and science operating on mainly orthogonal planes. Intelligent Design
is a perfect example of what can go wrong when people start mixing the two at an institutional level. But since IRAS seems to be coming out swinging against that, and since it's an affiliate society of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
, I'm considerably less suspicious and considerably more intrigued.
