I know, you saw the title and then started your “response blog.” You’ll come back here and pull quotes, but you won’t actually read the whole thing. Perhaps you’re too far gone for dialectics. But I hope not. And that hope is why I write more than a title. Your first line is “David Smalley is categorizing everyone he disagrees with as “The Left!” And you’re already wrong.

A guest post from comedian and actor, Jay Mohr, talking directly to atheists, after his appearance on Dogma Debate. You may recognize him from one of his many movies, televised comedy specials, Saturday Night Live, his tenure as a sports talk radio host, or as the original host of Last Comic Standing on NBC. But when I see Jay Mohr, I see the coolest, and most hilariously down-to-earth Christian I’ve ever been able to call “friend.” I obviously disagree with… Read more

We’ve rejected the ultimate authoritarian dictator,… Read more

Remember when our friends could be wrong? I do. Lots of my friends were idiots growing up. Hell, I was that idiot a few times. But we stuck by each other, we worked through our issues, and we grew together. Sometimes, years later, we’d look back at things we did and apologize for being assholes. How is that possible?

1.     Suppose you are God. You created evil and calamity (Isaiah 45:7). When horrible things happen to your creation, you watch and do nothing. When a human steps in to solve the problem, you take the credit and demand to be praised. And you expect me to die and spend eternity worshipping the only being who was powerful enough to prevent the suffering, yet chose not to? It’s much more logical to assume that no god exists, and this book was… Read more
