Two non-legal rat's nests at the Volokh Conspiracy: First of all, a multi-hundred comment thread on a probability puzzle/paradox that's not the Monty Hall problem. Recommended for fans of avoiding work while thinking you know the answer -- I'm familiar with the problem but I found some new things to think about in the discussion.
Better, though, is the one on creationism, only because of this excellent comment from a creationist:
Don't think my attitude is [...] one of ignoring the challenges posed to the Bible, I entertain them, consider them, and reject them.(The ellipsis is because the original had "not" in that slot, but based on the rest of passage I'm pretty sure that's an over-negation error.)
