Science versus religion?

In today's News Leader, Mike Radoiu argues quite eloquently that science and religion do not necessarily clash with each other. That's a point I have often made in connection to evolution and similar hot-button issues that should not even be hot-button issues. It's a pretty basic proposition that faith and reason are separate domains, by and large, but people keeping forgetting it anyway. Radoiu laments, "It would seem that the current national debate is once again limiting us to the extremes with self-assured secularists on one side and wild-eyed fundamentalists on another." Alas... I was encouraged that most of the "StoryChat" comments to that op-ed piece shared Radoiu's sensible, balanced perspective. (Can you guess which of the comments was mine?)

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
