cultural diversity

Tuesday night course at Carey this semester (in addition to Romans on Monday night): Understanding and Interrogating Culture, with Phil Halstead (who also teaches the Intro to Counselling course I recently took).

Fantastic to be in a classroom talking about culture and look around and see (in no particular order!) kiwis, Taiwanese, Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, Fijians, Samoans, etc. – male and females – young and old.

One of the many, many reasons I love Carey Baptist College.

I finally got around to watching ‘Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed’, by Ben Stein & co.

I won’t bother dissecting its entire content, but in passing, found it opportunistic in both persons interviewed and interview segments used.  On the atheist side of the coin, you had Michael Ruse being interviewed along with PZ Meyers and Richard Dawkins, of which Ruse has expressed embarrassment about one, and probably feels similarly about the other.  On the theist side, you have Alister McGrath and John Lennox being quoted as if having the same view of the issue as William Dembski and all the others – which I’m almost certain they don’t.
