First Post

My first Angry Bear post is up. It's about this opinion piece in the Indy Star by a professor at Notre Dame that reads like it was written by the love child of The Petroleum Institute and the Republican National Committee.

Brooks on Neuroscience

Still swamped with stuff. But I happened across this excellent analysis of David Brooks' recent column on Buddhist Neuroscience. I didn't know about Steve Novella's blog before, and when I get a chance I'm going to add it to the blogroll.

I've long expected that neuroscience would soon rise the ire of the religious. In fact, a major tenet of intelligent design creationism relies upon the rejection of a naturalistic, materialistic explanation of the mind. Some day when I have more time I'll pick up on that topic.

Angry Bear

The gang at Angry Bear has invited me to post there on a semi-regular basis. Given that I'm swamped with stuff right now, most of the blogging I'll be doing over the next two months will be over there. When every I get an AB post up I'll put up a link here, too, so that my three regular readers will know to check it out there.

The economic stuff will end up at AB, and most of the political and snarky stuff will end up here. So there will be reasons to keep checking Afferent Input. I know you don't want to miss out on AI-certified snark. It'll put hair on your chest. Good stuff.
