The Secular Outpost
Follow Patheos Atheist:
His blog isn’t new, but I just discovered it and wanted to mention it here.
For those of you who do not know who Matt McCormick is, he is an atheist philosopher of religion at California State University at Sacramento.
Jeffery Jay Lowder is President Emeritus of Internet Infidels, Inc., which he co-founded in 1995. He is also co-editor of the book, The Empty Tomb: Jesus Beyond the Grave.
Oh wow, this is great news, I really enjoyed reading Matt's chapter in Loftus' book 'The End of Christianity' so I'll definitely be subscribing to his blog =D
Thanks for pointing this out Jeffery
Thrilled to see more people paying attention to Prof. McCormick's site. If anyone's interested he gave us an interview a while back http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thinkatheist/2011/05/09/think-atheist-radio-show-episode-7-dr-matt-mccormick-may-8-2011and his book was recently accepted for publication by Prometheus. Should be out first quarter next year I guess.
I'll definitely be getting a copy of that book nelson! I found his writing style to be very clear in 'The End of Christianity'. It was one of my favourite chapters.
I'm looking forward to it as well. His Witchcraft Argument against the historicity of the resurrection is fantastic.
There is also a interview with Matt McCormick at the Common Sense Atheism blog, see: http://commonsenseatheism.com/?p=6461, in the “conversations from the pale blue dot” series.
Incidentally you’ll find in that series a large number of great interviews with contemporary philosophers. I think it is a pity that the blog’s owner, Luke Muehlhauser (who is an atheist by the way), has stopped doing these interviews. In my opinion he has created one of the most useful philosophical resources on the Internet today.
