irreducible complexity

Here is a link to a really good new blog, Irreducible Complexity.

The author of the blog, Ian, says about himself and his writing:

I study the bible, with bits of Christian origins and early Christianity thrown in. I’m also an atheist, both in the sense of not-believing-there-is-a-God, and believing-there-is-no-God. I’m fascinated by all kinds of things, from typography to chess, from conlangs to competitive swimming, from creative cartography to the mathematics of music.

This is my bible and religion blog. I have been studying the bible for 20 years now. I’m particularly interested in New Testament criticism, although I have a soft spot for non-canonical Christian literature and try to dabble and keep up with the broad movements in Hebrew Bible scholarship and early church history.

Ian is a very intelligent, sympathetic, and well-informed writer. If you are interested in the Bible and Christianity you will definitely learn something by visiting his site. Enjoy!

    I have one and a half commonality with Ian. I used to be interested in the bible, but I’m still interested in chess.

    Ian seems two-dimensional, and cartoon-ish to me. ;-)

    Laughing Boy, ha, ha, and you appear childish. But to go by my avatar, I am even more so. :^)

    Good to read you again, my friend. It’s been too long . . .
