We are publishing a four part series of excerpts on most entertaining of books on the history of science, Flat Earths and Fake Footnotes,
Why won’t this stubborn pseudohistory die? To the rescue comes Peterson, a historian extraordinaire with many stories to tell. Exuding a palpable glee, he quests to debunk the grand pseudohistorical myths of conflict. His book about books leads the reader in an adventure across centuries. Hacking through the webs of false references and out-right fabrications, the payoff is a glimpse of what really happened. The truth is far more hopeful than the fiction. Rather than inevitable conflict, the true arc of science and religion might be dialogue, maybe even friendship. May this book get the wide readership it deserves.
On the same topic, we published an excerpt from Kenneth Kemp too.
Of course, do not miss Ken Miller’s AAR/SBL paper. He is an entertainer too, so watch the video if you can.
Whatever else you might think of Christopher Columbus, you can rest assured he set sail from a Europe that already knew the Earth was round.
The Genesis story of Adam and Eve matters. Not just to Christians, but to people of all Abrahamic faiths.
In his book, The War that Never Was, Kenneth Kemp unpacks the historical misconception that science and faith are inherently at odds.
Scientists labor in a house that someone built a long time ago. Christians were among the house’s architects, and have stories to tell about house’s history.
