My intriguing and eloquent friend Brandon has commented on my thoughts on Mere Christianity. Interesting commentary follows. Brandon is, so far as I can tell, dead-on in what he says, but none of it leads me to revise anything I've said.
With his post, a taxing two-front war has been commenced. On the east, as an atheist, I'm going up against Lewis's ardent Christianity (but his apology is, even if wrong, quite enjoyable. His arguments are inventive and cheerfully presented.) But on the other front, I'm defending Lewis's belief in objective morality, since I agree with it. Now, bloggers for Catallarchy were selected, among other variables, for their degree of moral skepticism, and thus, their skepticism of objective morality and an apparatus for comprehending it. A lot of people were sick of Rothbardian natural rights arguments. As was I, so I got selected--but I ended up changing my mind on the whole myth of natural rights, which pits me against a number of my co-bloggers. Which is cool.
Tangentially, one reason for the popularity of 24 might be that people hate LA and enjoy seeing bits of it blown up on a weekly basis.
