Over at Heather’s Homilies, Heather Hastie, prop., has set up an essay competition deriving from the Templeton-sponsored “religion and science are BFFs” essay contest I posted about the other day. Read the whole post and the contest’s rationale at her site, but here are the rules:
There are two categories, and you can enter both if you wish.
1. Sokal-type Essay
Write an essay of an experience that led to a “personal” epiphany of the “undeniable” link between religion and science.
2. Anti-Accommodationist Essay
Write an essay expressing clear and concise arguments to use in opposition to the proposition that religion and science are compatible.
Entries can be up to 1500 words. There is no minimum word limit.
Closing Date for Entries
Sunday 2 October. Best entries will be posted soon after.
As she said, the winning essays will be published on her site, and although there aren’t monetary prizes, you could always submit it to the Templeton competition, which has a $10,000 first prize.
The essays are supposed to be submitted to me, as Heather wants her email address to remain private, so if you write one, send it to yours truly. You know how to find me.
