T 21 Blackford (Blackford, Downey, Everitt, Benson, Schellenberg). Additional text nominationsLet's stay on track with group-based posts & comments, please.
Let's also start discussing whether we want to select an additional required text (not necessarily in book form) to cover the three open slots in April. If we decide to do that, we can begin posting our nominations** prior to a vote on the exam date (Feb. 28).
Speaking of the exam: we should gather all the separately posted "factual questions" some of you have been proposing, and add to them. If someone wants to get that started under the title "Exam Questions," thanks in advance.
*Tentative presentation schedule:
T 21 - Jamie, The Golden Age of Islamic Atheism
Th 23 - Ben & Steven, Religion & Neuroscience; Daniel, Nietzsche & Morality
T 28 - Meghan, Parenting Beyond Belief; Matthew, tba
Th 1 - Jonathan, Is the New Testament Historically Reliable?; and someone whose handwriting I can't decipher, and whose title I don't understand - it seems to say "Defend the God: 6 EC." - ???
