Silver Bullet 2020: Joe Biden/Elizabeth Warren

After one of the most demoralizing election seasons in recent memory, when it seemed as though there were new depths to be plumbed every week, Americans have good reason to be sick of hearing about politics.

What is your political alignment?

It was originally supposed to take place at a huge Muslim Dawah conference, and that’s why I was so eager to accept. but I guess the organizers had other ideas about that and cancelled.

What now if you took the obvious hints both pre and post election that this was most definitely not a good idea? First for people that voted for Trump celebrate or regret your folly. Trump overtly promises to be [Read More…]

Road to Reason

Robert Penczak, the executive director of Atheist Alliance of America also hosts a UstreamTV show called Road to Reason. In their most recent episode, they chose to interview me.

‘Tis the Season for believin’ silly things you know ain’t true

As I have the right [Read More…]
