Ask Me Anything

Here’s a post (or a comments section) in which you can get to know me beyond the basics that I laid out in my introductory post. Whether you’re a long time reader migrating over to the new site with me or a Freethought Blogs reader discovering Camels With Hammers for the first time, this can be your thread to probe me about my views or interests on anything that interests you. I’m happy to overview my philosophical positions to help orient you or to talk about off-topic stuff that does not normally come up on the blog.

Forgive me if sometimes I will answer briefly with a link, but if I have already explained something well, I sometimes like to avoid repeating myself.
