I hope you fearlessly exercise your academic freedom and stand up for what you believe in, like you always have.
Congrats on getting tenure man! I'm really happy for you, after your tremendous hard work over the years.
You have absolutely no way of knowing who this is. It's purely anonymous. Perhaps that's an interesting way of seeing what people think. Perhaps not.27 Jan 2017, 08:45 for Tell me what yo...
Having found Ronald Nash, it led me to Plantinga, and searching for more, I found your neat little site. With that, I encourage you to update as time allows. Your "in progress" writings have stirred my interest. Thanks.27 Nov 2016, 03:53 for Tell me what yo...
Prof Andrew Bailey It's my intuition that what Alvin Plantinga is proposing in his paper "Law, Cause, and Occasionalism" suggests a significant, even radical shift in how we as persons, humans perceive and think of the nature of the world (cosmos, universe, what have you) and of ourselves as creatures. I am not in a position to say that Plantinga is "right," and it appears he got a lot of push-back at the Swinburne conference in Indiana, and for that matter, I don't know what your thoughts on Plantinga's new adventure might be. In any case, the "shift in paradigms" he's proposing strikes me as especially provocative and engaging23 Sep 2016, 18:05 for Tell me what yo...
I'd be grateful if you would post more of Plantinga's papers, there are lots missing still.22 Jul 2016, 07:17 for Tell me what yo...
Your statement: "Andrew M. Bailey has got 18 anonymous opinions." What does this mean? I mean, if you have 18 of them, why not share them with the rest of us (humankind)? "Anonymous opinions" sound like orphans in a certain way. I recall a tabloid headline: "Di's pregnant secret." (Ie, Princess Diana.) Is there some kind of association between "anonymous opinions" and "pregnant secrets"? In any case, thanks for PDF of Plantinga on occasionalism, truly grateful I'm and no secret for sure05 Apr 2016, 04:41 for Tell me what yo...
Nice resources on your site, so I thought perhaps I can give a back a bit.
First, you ought to take a look at perceptual control theory if you are not familiar with it. I believe that it ties in with Hofstadter's strange loop phenomenon. Do not underestimate the importance of PCT.
Second, ditto re "Connected" by Christakis and Fowler. They discuss a relevant "human nature" "dimension" there. One might say that dimensional category, the story is not about two wolves but four wolves. Then, likely, there are all sorts of other animals along other dimensions as well. Wishing you well with your book.

Dear Thinking Person,
I would like to invite you to
Here, in just a few minutes, I will show you why I think our universe is always becoming more conscious, and what that means for your life and mine.
I own a research firm specializing in government studies and training, but my desire to find out what I really believe eventually led to my book, "The Truth: The Universe Is A Growing God." (See “Reviews”)
To make the learning experience more enjoyable and even easier to comprehend, I have now rewritten it, put it on a moving scroll for free and narrated it.
I would like to believe it is worth your while to at least take a look at what I have to say.
Thank you for your time.
Cyril James Skidmore
