I've been a bit quiet lately. That's mostly because we just finished moving from MA to RI and I am about to depart for the DC area on Saturday (stopping over in NY on the way there). So, I've been incredibly busy trying to get everything moved and squared away, spend time with my wife and son before I don't see them for two weeks and also putting in 8 hours a day (at least) on my job. It's been a mess. And yet, I've managed to watch much of the world series. I'm rooting for Arizona, if you must know. I'm sick of the Yankees. They need to be sat down for awhile.(9:23 PM)

How Islam Won, and Lost, the Lead in Science This is a perfectly timed and fascinating article. It also ties in very nicely with the earlier link and comments today...(8:28 PM) || Is Islam truly peaceful? This is a truly fascinating article and the discussion that follows is even more fascinating still. My opinion? I just don't know enough yet but my inclination is to side with those that point out that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all have rather bloody source books which either advocate violence, accept it, or at least provide open hooks to justify it by some of the crazier types. Chris Kagy is fond of point out that he views the Islamic world as being very similar to the Christian world just before the Rennaisance. If that is so, then the violence being seen makes a lot of sense in that it is directly analogous to the same behavior in the Christian world at that same point in its history. I rather like this view and it does make a great deal of sense.(11:16 AM)
