Exploring Our…

In the first meeting of my “Religion and Science” class, I had a slide with a Matrix connection, and I asked whether that was still meaningful. It was, but I wonder how long it will be before “Exploring Our Matrix” only means “Exploring Our Setting/Context” and does not have science fiction overtones as well. If [Read More…]

Theme from Exploring Our Matrix

I previously tried to post this but was unsuccessful, and so I am trying again. Blog reader Keika made this video opening credits for the blog: He also made an extended version which features both Darth Vader and a Gorn as creationist foes. Watch what I do to them! Thanks, Keika, for both of these! [Read More…]

Top Posts of 2011

2011 saw the move of this blog to Patheos and the transfer of the archives of older posts from the blog’s old home on Blogger. A retrospective seems to be in order, as the end of my first (partial) year at Patheos draws near. I won’t list top 10s, but will instead mention a few [Read More…]

The Transition is Complete!

One last remaining aspect of the move from Blogger to Patheos has finally been completed. The archives from the old site are now here, and the old address http://exploringourmatrix.blogspot.com now redirects visitors to the blog’s current location.

Prove John Hobbins Wrong: Criticize Patheos!

I shared a link in my last post, but I think this deserves a post of its own. John Hobbins has shared why he can’t recommend Patheos. I can understand some of his points, while others I think are off target. But one in particular seems way off base, the idea that by joining Patheos, [Read More…]

A Hundred Posts, A Thousand Comments

I’d say that Exploring Our Matrix is off to a pretty good start here at its new location on the Patheos site. Today it reached a hundred posts and exceeded a thousand comments. While I think that this suggests that all is well, milestones like this provide a good opportunity for reflection and feedback. So [Read More…]

Vote for Your Favorite Biblioblog!

Everyone has presumably heard by now that Unsettled Christianity is the new #1 in the biblioblogosphere, as far as Alexa ranking is concerned. Sadly, the Alexa ranking system cannot differentiate blogs that share a domain, as those at Patheos do, and so this may well be my last time in the top 50. But you [Read More…]

There’s a new King in town (Biblioblog Rankings for May 2011)

Congratulations to Joel Watts and the other bloggers at Unsettled Christianity who have also unseated the reigning champion of the biblioblog wars, Jim West. Exploring Our Matrix came in at #3 – probably for the last time, since Alexa doesn’t rank separate blogs on this site. See the full list of top biblioblogs here. [Read more…]
