Confessionsย which is a short narrative of where I have been

What happens after the death of god which was a reflection of what I have come to learn in the time I have been without gods

Is science and religion compatible where my answer is a definite no

The things I believe is a work in progress

What’s in a name

I have also done a few book reviews, basically telling you what I liked about the books.

On the future of our educational institutions is not a review per se, but a link to the lectures by Nietzsche. This is for my friend

The god beyond belief which is a book on the problem of evil

What happened to the US of A is a review based on some speeches of Col Robert G. Ingersoll

and since it isn’t my intention to bore you, below are movies or music videos you may enjoy listening to

    I think the post on Ingersoll may have been the first one of yours that I read. Funny to see him mentioned twice in a day because I just finished an interview with Susan Jacoby about her book on him.

    500+ posts, that’s a lot. Wow. Keep up the good work! I’ll keep coming back.

      Thank you my good friend. It is always a pleasure to hear from you. And you are most welcome, keep coming.

      I found Ingersoll to be a very articulate person on many fronts, even his speeches at the gravesides of friends were nice reads
