Nagel Book "Tightly Argued, Exacting"

Nov 12, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Discovery Institute

Philiosopher Thomas Nagel's Mind and Cosmos: Why the Materialist Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature is Almost Certainly False is short enough to entice even the Darwinian fellow-travelers, but the book's 144 pages are "tightly argued and exacting," M. D. Aeschliman says in the November 12 National Review .

144 pages of arguments. No mention of evidence. Definitely a game changer.

I wouldn't argue that the materialist Neo-Darwinian conception of nature is almost certainly false. The better argument is that it just isn't science.
