The way I like to spend my downtime relaxing is to have endless debates on Facebook. In this case, I was debating gun control and regulation last night. I’m going to post some of my thoughts on this to see what you think. I am not going to concern myself with the pragmatic implications of gun regulation given that there are so many weapons in circulation in the US at the present time. Nor am I going to talk about… Read more

Introductory spiel: One of my more recent books, Not Seeing God: Atheism in the 21st Century (UK), has a plethora of gems in it for the reader and a smorgasbord of variety. It was a labour of love and was particularly rewarding due to the fact that so many great writers had been involved in the production of the book. There were some 24 writers from the ranks of Patheos Nonreligious and they all did their bit to make the project a really… Read more

I’m sure that everyone who reads this will know exactly what has happened over the last few days. But in case you have been on holiday to Antarctica, here it is. Donald Trump, as President of the United States of America, and as most powerful man in the world and role model to his people, has become yet again embroiled in controversy as a result of yet another Twitter spat. So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came… Read more

This is a very cool idea and a game I am very interested in supporting. Check out the video that should explain all: And here an example scenario, or two: I really look forward to getting this and playing with my Tippling Philosopher buddies. The Kickstarter campaign, here, has had phenomenal success, asking for a £55,230 goal (in USD, of course), and getting so far £1,344,270… and counting quickly.  I’m probably more excited by this than I should be…   Stay in touch!… Read more

Just to let you all know, in the context of the issues over comments going into moderation, that things should be improved by the end of the weekend. I am under the impression that they are sorting blogs out on an individual basis, and I sent in an email to ask if I could be addressed sooner rather than later – it seems to have worked as mine is due to be looked at over the weekend. Let me know… Read more

I have written a number of times lately, and posted videos, concerning freshman members of Congress who have been shining in the examples that are being set to others in how to conduct themselves in public office in holding people to account.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a great example of this. She has been raising the ire of people on both sides of the aisle, and for good reason. Here she concerns herself with healthcare and the troubles people face when… Read more

Let me prep the scenario: Leviticus 19:34 — “The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the foreigner as yourself, for you were foreign in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” Matthew 25:35 — “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Jeremiah 22:3 — “Thus says the Lord: Do justice and righteousness,… Read more

This is nothing unusual and fits in with the trends I have often reported here. Atheism and Islam look to be increasing in the UK, and Christianity is taking a beating. As The Telegraph reports: hristian belief has halved in Britain in 35 years with just one in three people now identifying as Christian – while atheism and Islam continue to rise. Figures published by the British Social Attitudes Survey reveal the widest ever margin between staunch atheists and believers… Read more

This video pokes some fun at the Virgin Mary conception of Jesus story, all of the points of which I mention in my book The Nativity: A Critical Examination (UK). Check them both out! Thanks to the video makers for letting me know about this. If you have any videos you think readers here will appreciate, let me know. Read more
