Spotty Reading in a busy term

My blogging has slowed to a crawl, due to teaching, administration and the rest of it...

But, here are some things I've spotted lately - of possible interest:

1. Conservatives should fear climate change.

2. William Carroll, who has taught at Blackfriars Hall, Oxford, comments on Stephen Hawking's rambling speculations from several weeks ago - on creation and Big Bang cosmology, and the confusion that ensued.

3. Why Schleiermacher and Karl Barth overlap a wee bit more than you would have imagined. "On Theology as the Science of the Divine Word" from Matthew Bruce with a response by Matthias Gockel. The focus is on method, a topic which is tied tightly to the name of Schleiermacher and resisted by Barth, who held that methodological questions are a distraction from proper theologizing about God.
