Science, faith and where the conflict really lies

For the slightly philosophically inclined miller of grist, this is an excellent review of Alvin Plantinga’s Where the conflict really lies. It’s in the New York Review of Books and it’s excellent because it is written by a top philosopher who is not a believer but who nevertheless reviews the book favourably as he outlines some of its key arguments. Worth every bit of the 15 minutes it will take you to read it. (Thomas Nagel is also the author of a famous paper called ‘What is it like to be a bat?’ which says there’s something that it is ‘like’ to be a bat which no amount of science can tell us. Along the lines of the David Chalmers interview which you might remember.)
