What is the difference between an assassin, killer or murderer? Without resorting to purposeful nuance and practiced subtlety, the differences are negligible and more often than not rely on degree and perspective to sort out the fatalities.

Equivocation, Lying & Apologists

Posted on January 4, 2015 at 11:00am 8 Comments

Before tripping lightly over the wagging tongues of Christian apologists and their fathomless chasms of excuses, defenses and, well, apologies, I wanted to define a few terms to set the scale.

First, the word equivocate. To…

I found out long ago that not only does the messenger often end up six feet under, but also more often than not the message goes to the grave along with the unfortunate bearer of bad news. As a journalist, I once covered civil court as a rookie reporter and found that depending upon the point of view the Court…

For me, reviewing a movie based on religious document is much like reporting on any other film. Although I am not a believer in any god, when it comes to movies, of which I happen to be a big fan, I hold no bias artistically speaking. This past week I…

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!

Don,

Maybe you would be interested in my review of the Manual for Creating Atheists.

New group, in case you are interested.  I always read your thoughtful posts with great enthusiasm and interest:

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.  Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history.  Without gods, what is the basis for justice?  What do humanists and others say about justice?  What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?

Glad to hear you are doing better. My thoughts are with you.
