A couple reasons for this post.

First, I'd feel incomplete if I didn't have something for July. I haven't posted anything in a month, primarily because I've been focusing on my mathematics, and nobody wants to hear about that. Moreover, what philosophical ideas I have been thinking up with are so scattered and broad that I don't think I could write them down into a coherent post. I will note though that I'm starting to have serious concerns about the whole science of metaphysics--not that it's meaningless or something, but that it is not epistemologically first in the fashion of arm-chair metaphysicians. As bad as that sounds, I don't feel this needs to be accompanied by an embrace of scientism. Just look at this book. These are just idle thoughts at the moment though.

Second, and primarily, I want to advertise The Rational Gang to anyone who might stumble across my little corner of the internet. We will be starting a blog in the next week or two, so be on the lookout. I should also have a post on a Thomistic, non-Molinist, take on divine foreknowledge and human freedom in a week or so.
