As usual, ten topics and associated blog posts from around the net. Please keep in mind I may completely disagree with any blog post mentioned here.

The blog Edible Geography has a long, involved post up with lots of science and some recipes for cocktails and cooking, in "Cross-Species Dining: An Interview with Natalie Jeremijenko and Mihir Desai".


David Kroll of the Take As Directed blog talks about science-writing and book-writing, and segues into the music of Pat DiNizio and also The Smithereens. The Intersections blog has a post up on, "Science Writers 2010: A Debate Over the Causes of Scientific Illiteracy and How Declining Science Journalism Fits Into That Picture".


The 80Beats aggregator blog has an interesting post up on knapping: "What It Takes to Make a Fancy Hand Ax: A Fancy Brain".


Rachel Cohen-Rottenberg of the blog Journeys With Autism has a good post up: "Neurodiversity, Self-Determination, and the Magic Pill".


There's a blog carnival going on the topic, "What Is Mental Illness? A Mini-Carnival". Also see this from the BPS Research Digest.


The thefpr.org blog takes a look at: "Cultural Neuroscience: Bridging Lab and Field (Redux)"; also see that blog's post on "What Should We Do With Our Brains? Philosopher Catherine Malabou on Concept of Plasticity".


Coralie Chevallier, one of those in the Cognition And Culture blog, has some rather great photos to do with anthropology in West Africa.


The blog eChurch is (rightfully) skeptical about some Christians's claims to being persecuted for their religion in the West. On that issue in general, the New Humanist blog also has some commentary.


It's philosophy + religion time with Edward Feser first up; he goes for "God, obligation, and the Euthyphro dilemma", then he goes for Kant's throat from a Thomist direction in "The catastrophic spider", and again in "Chastek and Coffey contra Kant". I can see now I'm going to have to blog full rebuttals. Ever more work. Then the blogger Sipech of the blog The Alethiophile, who I know from his very intelligent comments in threads on the Guardian Cif site, posts on on a different Thomas from Feser: "Doubting Thomas and a scientific approach to theology".


The proposed Anglican Covenant begins to get really widely discussed; there's a Radio 4 mutual panel of the Rev'd Lesley plus Bishop Gregory Cameron, plus discussion on that blog post. Then the issues of Fulcrum, Reform, women bishops, the Anglican Covenant and the upcoming Synod are all looked at by The Ugley Vicar; then Simon Sarmiento of the Thinking Anglicans blog also does some (more) comenting. Suem of the blog Significant Truths also comments.

    Strictly speaking, I don't discuss the Covenant at the Ugley Vicar post you've referenced, but thanks for noticing the blog!

    But the motives behind it.

    By the way, I read your blog quite often.
