It turns out that Providence does not have academic freedom, according to a couple of guys who have never been here... Check out this link to read up on it, and to see Gus Konkel's response. I think Dr. Konkel is very right when he suggests that they are forcing their secular ideology on us under the guise of "academic freedom".

Faith is a cognitive sickness?

Philosopher Peter Boghossian tells us that faith is a cognitive sickness.  Makes me wonder if he's read any Alvin Plantinga, William Lane Craig, Francis Beckwith, J. P. Moreland, C. S.

Philosophy talk

The Philosophy Club at the University of Manitoba presents…
“Hume and Miracle Reports”
A lecture by Dr. Hendrik van der Breggen
Date: Friday, March 16, 2012
Location: 395 University College, U of M
Time: 2:30 p.m.

All are welcome!

The Scottish philosopher David Hume (1711-1776) is well known for his criticisms of Christianity, especially his criticisms concerning the credibility of miracle reports, such as those reports having to do with Jesus' resurrection. Hume believed that he discovered an "everlasting check" against belief that a miracle has occurred, a check that will always render belief in miracle reports irrational. In this lecture Dr. van der Breggen examines Hume's argument.

The Philosophy Club is a student group within the University of Manitoba’s Department of Philosophy, organized and run by undergraduate and graduate students currently studying philosophy at the university.
