  1. I completely understand the need for anonymity. It is a sad truth that people of religion, especially Christians whose faith espouse acceptance and forgiveness, are so intolerant that they would threaten the life of someone who disagrees with them.

    Keep the Faith! I mean, keep doing what you’re doing!

    All of you.

    • It goes a bit deeper than that. The public sector is extraordinarily sensitive to controversy and I’ve paid a price for that. Having been stalked, I can assure you that crazytown has room for all kinds fanatics. And death threats and violence from those who think they defend islam is not fair to impose by association on friends and family. Hence, the anonymity.

  2. Thought provoking blog worthy following. I have not met a self-claiming New Atheist and I am honored to come across your thoughts. I enjoy and am always keeping learning from worldviews that are unlike me.

    • Well, PD, I suspect we have a lot more in common than differences. As for differing ‘worldviews’ I also suspect we share the same reality but describe it differently. My motives are quite simple: I am dedicated to finding out and respecting what’s true about it to the very best of my abilities. Where we might differ is respecting its role to arbitrate these descriptions.

  3. Are you blogging somewhere else now? Why did your posts dry up?
