It’s me!

John Wilkins has tried to make some arguments for accommodationism. I am unimpressed. He makes six points that I briefly summarize here, with my reply.

The last radio reminder

Sad (in some ways) to say, Atheists Talk radio will make its last broadcast Sunday at 9am Central time.

However, I am seeing some troublesome stirrings here. A certain demented ex-commenter is morphing to avoid…
