Hello Patheos!

Hi everybody! My name is Chris Hallquist, and like Libby Anne and JT before me, I’m moving to Patheos from Freethought Blogs. I’m an atheist who’s been blogging about religion (among other things) since I graduated high school, along the way writing a (now out-of-print) book and getting a masters degre in philosophy from the University of Notre Dame (among other things).

I’m currently in the process of transitioning from working as an English teacher in South Korea to working as a researcher for the Singularity Institute, where I’ll be trying to help save the world from mad scientists and evil robots. This transition has me crazy busy, so at first my blogging here may be a bit heavy on recycling stuff I’ve already written, but that will change after the first month.

This blog has a comment policy. I moderate comments pretty lightly, for reasons I explain here, but do not confuse this with not moderating comments. Otherwise I will laugh at you like I did this guy.

Nothing else is coming to me at the moment, so feel free to use the comments here to ask questions, congratulate me on the move, or just have an open thread. Enjoy!

ETA: Oh yeah, feel free to look me up on Facebook or Google+. Though I don’t use either of those as much as my Twitter, which is @uncrediblehallq.

    Well, I’ll be the first to say it – welcome! :-) I hope moving into your new digs goes smoothly.

    I’d welcome you to Patheos, but I obviously just followed you from FtB, so somehow it seems inappropriate.

    A technical note: your new rss feed only seems to include the first few lines of each post, whereas your old rss feed included everything. Intentional or no?

      It’s a default setting that I could change, but probably won’t. I’ll get paid more if people click through, and frankly when I quit my 9 to 5 job I may need the money. Hope it’s not too much trouble!

  • Anonymous Atheist

    So FTB loses another one to Patheos…
    Congrats on the new job.
    Will you be moving back to the US (California?) or staying in South Korea?

    • Chris Hallquist

      I’ll be moving back to the US eventually, probably stay in South Korea awhile on a tourist visa, though.

    I wish you the best, Chris! You can be sure I will be reading you here, as well :)

    • Chris Hallquist

      Thanks, Al.

    • MNb

      You being one of the main reasons to visit FtB can be sure I’ll read you here too.

  • Justin Allen

    Why the change in venue?

    • Chris Hallquist

      Mmm… partly for the money, partly for not wanting to be associated with all the drama (and lest I get sucked back into the drama, I’ll leave it at that).

  • JHendrix

    Bit late to saying it, but I hope you enjoy blogging over here and I will continue to read your work. Hope things go well for you as you make all these changes.

    It was a pleasure to read you at FtB and I’m sure it will be a pleasure here too. Good luck in the “new home”.

    Splitter!!!! (seriously, hope the extra bread from Patheos helps, watch out for the neighbors though)
