Disqus Comments

I’ve heard from a couple of people that there seem to be issues with Disqus comments loading properly. It sounds as though the problem may be limited to Internet Explorer, although it is hard to tell. They seem to load fine for me – sometimes a little slowly, when there are lots of comments. Since [Read More...]

Bart Ehrman has a New Blog

What is the Best Post on Exploring Our Matrix?

Another Patheos blogger asked us to share our best posts from our blogs. I honestly don’t know which one(s) I would pick. When you have been blogging as long as I have, and as often as I have, posts from several years ago can be a dim memory. So I thought I would ask regular [Read More...]

More Evidence that Creationists are Charlatans

Cdbren has been a persistent commenter on some threads about creationism here, insisting that creationists are not liars and denying his ignorance about science even when it has been blatant. While the ability to edit comments after the fact is useful both for correcting inadvertent mistakes and for covering up evidence of one’s major blunders, [Read More...]
