It’s true! Like humans . . . and tribbles . . . dinosaurs apparently became pregnant while they were still adolescent! And look at what happened to them! GET THE STORY.
SDG here (still not Jimmy) with one more response to the first round of reader comments on the materialism posts. [Reader 1] This is well presented so far, SDG. In my experience, the ultimate move tht materialists will make in the face of the sort of argument you’re developing is to bite the bullet and […]
SDG here (still not Jimmy) with a roundup of some responses to reader comments from the four preceding posts (one two three four). I found this post quite interesting. … I tend to wince a little bit every time a paragraph begins "From the materialist perspective" and then goes on to assert something as if […]
SDG here (still not Jimmy) with more on materialism and the moral argument (continued from Part 3). The ethical approach sketched in the preceding posts is neither a rhetorical conceit nor a straw man. There are ethicists and moralists who really advocate this kind of thinking, who advocate extramarital flings, for instance. One school of […]

They have done an extraordinary job–and continue to do it–operating in dangerous, windy conditions with little sleep and often only the food and water they can carry on them. Yet not everyone in history has held such a high […]
Here’s the latest fire and evacuation map. I was finally able to get into the San Diego County emergency web site again. (They really do need more bandwidth or server capacity–and they need to give maps as nice, simple gifs instead of 1.7 meg PDFs). This edition of the map has a grid with numbers […]
SDG here (not Jimmy) with more on materialism and the moral argument (continued from Part 1). Suppose you see me bullying a weaker party, and you confront me, saying: "Stop that, you louse!" "Louse?" I reply. "Louse? A small, wingless insect of the order Anoplura? I’m afraid I don’t know what you’re talking about, friend. […]
