Do you want to know Pope Francis Theology: read this.

Lacking a first encyclical from pope Francis (see note below), if you want to know the pope I strongly recommend to read the interview he gave to to the editor in chief of La Civiltà Cattolica. It is all over the web, but for once I think it is worth a lot reading it.

Note: Lumen Fidei even if formally the first encyclical Francis, has been regarded after an analysis of the content and style as written almost completely by Benedict XVI, with only minor additions from Francis. Because of this almost nothing of Francis "program" as a pope can be deduced from that. In contrast the interview tells us a lot more of who Francis is. Enjoy.

Playing awesome philosophy game online: the nature of morality, plus Euthyprho dilemma

Socrates Jones: pro philosopher is a graphic adventure online that I have been playing. It is awesome and I recommend all of you to go there. Socrates Jones dies and has to debate a bunch of great philosophers. You need find win them by asking questions and bringing counter-arguments to point to their mistakes and then pass to the next level.

I disagree with some of the counter-arguments, for which I have another counter-arguments but this is because I am quite opinionated. The adventures is a lot of fun (for geeks like me) and you can save your status after every chapter. Go play here, and enjoy.

I can not finish though by adding a short video of Bill Craig responding to Euthyphro dilemma.

Comments are very welcomed.
