    Eric – I certainly don’t agree with all you’ve written, but I appreciate your willingness to tackle questions infrequently discussed in the Freethought community, such as the creation of community, and how that is playing out and might play out.

      I wish Daniel would stop giving his (formerly-interesting) platform to this tedious stuff. I’d like to stay subscribed to Daniel, without getting any of Eric.
