h, why not?
I'm undecided about whether to bring back BlogSpotting as a regular, probably weekly, feature. But I'm thinking about it.
- Eddie Beal liked a couple of Pyro-posts last week.
- Michael Beasley correctly reminds us that there is another side to the Guilt-by-Association fallacy, and it also needs to be diligently guarded against.
- Mike Perrigoue had a LONG conversation regarding one of the same questions Dan Phillips brought up in his LONG post this week.
- Mathew Sims punctuates a long list of links with a nod to Centuri0n's post on the still, small voice.
- Paul Lamey offers a bribe.
- Carla Rolfe almost beat me to the punch.
- Eric Zeller doesn't like logical fallacies.
- J. Mark Bertrand has a pithy title with a serious point.
- TEXpresby remembers a Steve Taylor song.
- Keith Plummer sagely observes that rose-colored glasses obscure clear vision as surely as a jaundiced eye.
- Brad Huston has some concerns and still thinks I "missed an opportunity to gently admonish Slice of Laodicea."
- Jeremy Muncy agrees with Dan.
- Matt Gumm welcomes you to his blog.
- James White, recently Norrisized, paid a personal visit to the PyroManiac. He spoke at a Saturday-morning men's meeting sponsored by GraceLife. James paused for this snapshot next to the Pyro-decal on the back of my car.
- Tyler Vincent agrees that so much ambiguity in the "Emerging Conversation" leaves the movement completely without any defense in the face of marauding heresies.
- Rob Auld wants all fundamentalists to just . . . go away.
- Shane brings up the issue of proper language again.
- The iMonk is still making rationalizations and protests, claiming this old diatribe from him is merely dispassionate analysis, as opposed to the guilt-by-association fallacy. In the process, he commits the GBA fallacy yet again, strongly implying that those of us who find the iMonk's rhetoric wanting are somehow to be blamed for the lack of graciousness in a certain blogger last year "who said that God killed Kyle Lake because he was emerging." That sort of general allegation ("the link was passed around like it was the price of coffee? With no comment?") without any proof whatsoever is a classic example of the sort of GBA insinuations we deplore.
(iMonk has posted an "update" in which he suggests that it is his readers' duty to search for the evidence he neglected to provide. We'll make it simple. See the last two items in the "Miscellany" section of this post for proof that the iMonk is indeed "lying about the Lake/Proctor links.")
- Wanna talk "relevance"? Bob Ladwig points out that Spurgeon is amazingly relevant to what's happening today.
And finally . . .
Here's a post in honor of Dave Armstrong.
