Give a big welcome to Dan Fincke, JT, and Chris!

Guess what? I have a new neighbor here in the Patheos atheist channel! Actually I have several new neighbors!  Yay!

Dan Fincke of Camels with Hammers has just today moved to Patheos from my former home, FreeThought Blogs. Dan was raised evangelical, went to a Christian college to study philosophy, and graduated four years later an atheist. He has his Ph.D. in philosophy and writes some fascinating things on ethics, atheism, and religion.

You should all check out Dan’s blog. I’m thrilled to have him here. Seriously, check out his blog. He’s intelligent, a good writer, and always thought provoking. In addition, he and I have a very similar approach to blogging in many ways. Did I mention that I’m thrilled to have him here at Patheos?

JT Eberhard of WWJTD  is another new addition to the Patheos atheist channel, and he’s also here from FreeThought Blogs.

JT’s byline is “Fighting Religion Tooth and Claw,” and he focuses on taking on the religious and is a speaker for atheist and skeptic groups. JT formerly worked as an organizer for the Secular Student Alliance, and has a passion for helping young atheists organize and for defending the separation of church and state. JT tangles with the religious on issues like abortion and gay marriage in addition to more typical apologetics type issues.

The final new addition is Chris Hallquist of the The Uncredible Hallq.

I don’t know Chris as well, but I think his blog is similar to JT’s in that he focuses on taking down religious arguments. And hey, he has a pretty cool blog banner!

Anyway, you should check out JT and Chris’s blogs too!

Welcome, Dan! Welcome, JT and Chris!

      Hey! I love you too! It just so happens that Dan and I have talked quite frequently over the past six months, so I know him a bit better than I know you! But hey…you have time to catch up. :-P

    Now I see why P. Z. Myers was muttering about Patheos poaching FTB bloggers. You got two of the most philosophical (egghead) atheists and now I have to try to get the term “poached eggheads” out of my mind.
    I was already splitting time between the two networks, so this will just alter the proportion a bit.

      I think that if you’re trying to convince someone with your philosophy then Patheos is the place to do it since it includes a wider variation of bloggers and readers. PZ and the others are mostly preaching to the choir over there.

      I’m saying that still admitting that I spend much more time there. PZ is much funnier. Also, philosophy is often just as ridiculous as religion, it’s just harder to spot it because Dan and the others are cleverer with words.
