Notes and Links

* Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire. Alan Rhoda at "Alanyzer" has a nice post on Liar Paradoxes. He takes the route I prefer not to take (holding that sentences like "This sentence is false" express no proposition), because it seems to me to be either false or arbitrary, and, what is more, to concede more than is required -- namely, that the inference in the paradox we're supposed to make from the proposition's falsehood is a legitimate one, which I think it clearly is not. But it's a nice post worth reading. For my discussion of a similar approach, see my post on the Propositional Depth Response to the Liar Paradox.

* The Wonder of His Work Displays the Firmament. Rebecca has a post on natural revelation at "Rebecca Writes."

* Scars of Honor. There's an interesting post at "Disputations" on Aquinas's following Bede in discussing why the Risen Christ bore scars.

* So Say We All. If you need your Battlestar Galactica fix, you can start by watching the webisodes of The Resistance, which presents some of the events after the occupation. Of course, what I want to see is Laura Roslin; but Cally, Tyrol, and Tigh will do for the moment.

* Which Reminds Me....

You scored as President Laura Roslin. You may be ill but you have a job to do. Fate has put you in a powerful position by accident, but it turns out you are damn good at it. You are no warrior, but in the political arena you are without peer.

* My internet access has been a bit more sporadic of late than usual; so that's the explanation if I seem to be posting a bit less than my normal amount. But there are several things in the pipeline.
