This blog explores intellectual arguments in favor of Christianity (Christian apologetics) from an atheist perspective and critiques Christianity’s actions in society. I began writing it in August, 2011.

About the Author

After graduating from MIT in 1980, I designed digital hardware, about which I wrote my first book, The Well-Tempered Digital Design (Addison-Wesley, 1986). I have programmed in a dozen computer languages and in environments ranging from punch cards, to one of the first windowing environments, to MS-DOS, to Windows (starting with version 1.0). I am a co-contributor to 14 software patents and have worked at a number of technology companies from a 10-person startup to Microsoft and IBM.

Since leaving Microsoft, I have focused on writing. Future Hype: The Myths of Technology Change (Berrett-Koehler, 2006) explored technology change—how we see it and how it really works. My novel, Cross Examined: An Unconventional Spiritual Journey, is available as paperback or ebook. I wrote a bit about my own journey from faith in my “Post #1.”

I live in the Seattle area.  Please contact me with feedback about this blog or the book and suggestions for new posts at crossexaminedblog AT gmail DOT com. Would you like to write a guest post? Contact me about that, too.
