About Timothy Dalrymple

Timothy Dalrymple was raised in non-denominational evangelical congregations in California. The son and grandson of ministers, as a young boy he spent far too many hours each night staring at the ceiling and pondering the afterlife.
In all his work he seeks a better understanding of why people do, and do not, come to faith, and researches and teaches in religion and science, faith and reason, theology and philosophy, the origins of atheism, Christology, and the religious transformations of suffering

    Is it worth pointing out that the majority of responsible squirrels who study the economy of nuts state that during times of nut recession, cutting government programs to give out nuts that thereby re-enter the system is not a good idea? Or that nut austerity has only dragged the economy of European squirrels deeper into their recession? Or is this video only about showcasing the views of extremely fiscally Conservative, anti-governance squirrels( like members of of the Nut Tea Party) on the spending of nuts– views that were resoundingly, in the last election, declared by the majority of squirrels to be, well, nuts?

      Dude, what are you talking about? You’re acting like this is some kind of political statement. It’s just a story about squirrels.

        Sorry, man. You’re right, I just get nuts about nuts sometimes. Here is another fun kids’ cartoon with no underlying agenda at all: ttp://
        (Hopefully no one is silly enough to read a political statement into that one. I think I got carried away for a second before.)
