    Plantinga’s argument has been around for a while (4 years at least). Google will reveal some of the give and take. For me, all it undermines is his credibility as a scholar and critical thinker.

    Not about Plantinga, but I’m curious if you’ve come across this feisty lad before – looks like he’s based in Columbus.

    And while I’m at it…check out the links in this post by Andrew Sullivan. I rather like the reinterpretation.

    Ha! Indeed. I was actually making reference to my little icon I made up for the talk. I rather like it. 🙂

    Wow, we already passed the phase where theists argue that evolution doesn’t disprove god, and now they are already arguing that it proves god 🙂
    Platinga for the win!

    Well in that case no it doesnt bother me. The Darwin fish is fine, the FSM, as amused as I am by the FSM and his followers, its just a humorous jab at the “teach the controversy” pushed forward by cdesign propentisists.

    Plantinga of course is a noted cdesign proponentsist himself, as a fellow of Dembski’s now-defunct ISCID.

    Cute, but t’ perspective be all wrong. You see, it be not really a big evolution fish about t’ eat a tiny Flyin’ Spaghetti Monster (may he bless us with His noodly appendage), it be actually a giant FSM in t’ aftground sneakin’ up on its intended prey!

    Teach t’ controversy! Yarr!!

    Now that I look closer, it looks like FSM is holding the fishy’s mouth open & reaching into its innards. Too much SciFi for me, maybe.

    It ought to be a giant FSM giving birth to a baby darwinfish.
