Math Education: An Inconvenient Truth

I recommend this excellent video about elementary mathematics education presented by M.J. McDermott. In the video she addresses some of the many problems with mathematics education in this country.

Dawkins dismisses William Lane Craig

Victor Reppert reports that self-important Richard Dawkins, a man completely intoxicated with his own ideas, claimed that a debate with William Lane Craig, "might look good on [Craig's] resume, but it wouldn't look good on mine!"

You are correct, Mr. Dawkins; it would not look good on your resume because he would mop the floor with you.
