An Update on my Brief Hiatus

by Max Andrews

As many of you know I’ve been in the hospital for five days due to some Crohn’s related problems.  I went in last Tuesday with pains that were very similar to my last flare up, which led to me to a major surgery that should have spared me 3-5 years.  Anyways, I’m in recovery mode from this most recent flare up though I’m not completely out of the woods yet.  I’ll be heading up to UVA in the next few weeks to have a procedure/consultation on how to treat this from here on out due to the still unknown spots on my liver.

I hope to be getting to some more blogging in the next week or so here.  I’m halfway finished with my review of Skeptic Magazine’s review of William Lane Craig in their recent issue.  Additionally, I’ll be lecturing in the next few weeks on fine-tuning, the multiverse, and the problem of evil.  I already have these lectures prepared from earlier lectures but I’ve been reading more papers on the multiverse and I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts on here. Aside from blogging, I’m a little behind in my research for my epistemology course.  I’m hoping to do research on the role of inference in belief formation and belief/paradigm change.  I’m also amidst my graduate research on fine-tuning and the multiverse as well as my research in my Thomas Aquinas course on Thomas’ thoughts on creation and time.

More to come later on, again, sorry for the lack of updates and posts.

  6. I’m totally fascinated by fine tuning. What do you think about Caroll’s or Krauss’ objections to this argument?
