Coming up later today....

In just a few minutes, reflections about experimenting with religion in light of Felipe Fernandez-Armesto's new book A Foot in the River-- Why Our Lives Change-- and the Limits of Evolution.

On the faculty at Notre Dame, this is what they say about his new book:

A Foot in the River: Why Our Lives Change — and the Limits of EvolutionFelipe Fern├índez-Armesto (Oxford University Press). The William P. Reynolds Professor of Arts and Letters at Notre Dame here presents a radical answer to the question of why human culture varies so radically from place to place, and what differentiates it from the behavior of such species as gorilla and dolphins. The historian posits that culture is exempt from evolution and we can make our world in the freedom of unconstrained imagination.
