The photo displayed is of Harlem soapbox orator, agitator, popular educator, & atheist Hubert Henry Harrison.

Documentation of black atheism, freethought, & humanism on the web can be found in my atheist web guide.

See also my working bibliography.

I also have a general interest blog, Reason & Society.

Some of you may also be interested in some of my other projects, e.g. The Autodidact Project, my Studies in a Dying Culture (blog), and my Emergence blog. You can also listen to my podcasts: my Internet radio show is called "Studies in a Dying Culture," hosted by Think Twice Radio.

I have found that periodically deleting my browser cache helps speed up site access.

Please forgive me, I don't intend to insult your intelligence, but in trying to figure out what the problem might be, I have to start with the basics. Do you delete your cache every so often?
Comment by Ralph Dumain on April 26, 2010 at 5:19pm
Yes, but I haven't attempted to write anything for some time.

I am unable to add a new discussion in this forum. I continually have problems with the posting mechanism. I'm getting pretty fed up with this web site.

Forgive the botched formatting of my discussions. The text editor is totally jacked and I can't edit my messages. If this isn't fixed, I can't continue posting on this site.
