Collapse of intelligent design

December 31st, 2007

Here is a very interesting talk by Prof. Ken Miller given at Case Western Reserve University titled “Collapse of Intelligent Design: Will the next monkey trial be in Ohio?“. He makes very compelling arguments and clearly shows that Intelligent Design is nothing but Creationism 2.0.

Here is the ruling on the Dover case. Here is prof. Miller’s appearance on The Colbert Report.

Guide books on buying a home

December 27th, 2007

Instead of wasting my money on rent, I’m thinking of buying a house as an investment. I’ve been spending some time over the web going through introductory articles on home buying and so far I’ve been disappointed. I found that most of the stuff over the web is not very helpful. While they give a good overview of possible options, they are very short on giving practical guidelines to aid decision making.

For example, here are some of the typical questions that I have:

I am hoping that one of the following books will be helpful in answering my questions.
