Conversations with Atheists, 26 APR 21

Them: “How many people have you personally met, who attempt to force Atheism on anyone?“ Notice the immediate restriction: my opinion is somehow only valid if I have personally met an offender. Knowledge of world history, access to verifiable stories, documentary evidence; all are somehow meant to be made irrelevant by this sentence. I originally assumed it …

Life After Goog-a-zon

So far, I have deleted my Twitter account with no intended replacement, …

Tenets of Modern “Skepticism”
