Kindle version of The Unnecessary Science: OUT NOW!

Fantastic news, everyone! I’ve got a lot of fans of The Unnecessary Science who’ve been begging for an eBook because physical shipping can be so troublesome, and it’s finally out! And at an extremely good price too, at only 9.99$ just about everyone can afford a copy to put on their smartphone–in other words, you’ll […]

Anti-Thomist Tidbits: A Brief Critique of the Evolutionary Argument Against Naturalism

Just a quick little something I whipped up for you guys about an annoying bit of reasoning I see my Thomist foes use quite a lot. It’s called the “Evolutionary Argument Against Naturalism.” The funny thing is, this argument was invented by a Protestant Christian, and Thomists are Catholic. It’s from Alvin Plantinga, one of […]

Critique of a Critique of the Argument from Divine Hiddenness

Hey guys! I got a little somethin for ya this fine evening. I put out another video on the religion/atheism debate! Check it out!     Edward Feser’s e-beefs with other philosophers are usually amusing at the very least, and sometimes sources of edification as well. This is the case for a relatively one-sided spat […]

Fun with Final Causality

Another critique of Edward Feser’s Aristotelian-Thomist philosophy for you today, my friends. I must start this off with a bit of a disclaimer: If you happen to come across this post in the “edward feser” tag, you’ll notice it’s a response to a quote some other Tumblr user posted. Vagueblogging is in poor taste, I agree, […]

Free Will Ain’t Free

One thing I’ve often heard from Catholics, particularly “traditional” or conservative ones (most notably guys such as philosopher Edward Feser), is that free will is supposedly a good. Whenever someone brings up the fact that an omnipotent God could simply force everyone to worship Him (thereby resulting in no-one going to hell), people like Feser […]

The Problem with Desire

Been havin’ a great week so far, friends. Tons of videogames, plenty of great food, and general relaxation mark the submission of my third dissertation draft. A respite like this makes a fitting reward for the progress I made, wouldn’t you say? Even so, perhaps the process of working on that big ol’ project has […]

Against Aquinas: An In-Depth Critique of “Natural Law” Ethics, Theology, and Metaphysics

Hot damn! It’s been way too long, brothers and sisters, but I finally kept my promise. I’m back in the philosophy groove, following up on the last philosophy piece I wrote a while ago—Aristotle’s Curse, which was a critique of Edward Feser’s The Last Superstition. That essay had a lot of history-related analysis mixed in […]

A little late, but not too late: My Book Review of Edward Feser’s “The Last Superstition”

Whooooo-eee! I am pretty late for this entry, my friends–I meant to post it up last friday. But it ended up being sooooo big I had to delay it to be happy with it! I think you’ll see why, because it’s nearly 40 thousand words! But I think it’s worth it, so I hope you […]

Cosmological Musings

Something short for you today, my friends. I have to apologize; I had wanted to do a longer (though still a “quickshot,” haha) review of the first book of William L. Shirer’s three-volume autobiography. However, it’s very large (492 pages), and this week I’ve been distracted by XCOM: Enemy Within and haven’t paid enough attention […]

Author’s Notes for “The Confessor”

Next week, I will be posting the sixth and final chapter for one of my smaller fics on FFn, “The Confessor.” It takes place on the continent of Jugdral, in the world of Fire Emblem 4. It’s actually only the second FE4 fic I’ve written, despite FE4 being probably my favorite Fire Emblem and the […]
