Conversation and violence." - Sam Harris The evening of August 11, 2017, brought out a scene reminiscent of Triumph of the Will through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Piker Thuds in Kirk Debate

Hasan Piker is missing the point when he debated about safe spaces with Charlie Kirk during Saturday night’s Politicon event. This was one of the more interesting debates on the slate, as I had seen several videos of Piker surface on social media during recent months. I was disappointed. Riots and Protests Piker wanted to... Continue Reading →

In other words, they won't have as good of health care under it as they perceive under Obamacare. I am confused by this. How do they know?... Continue Reading →

Normalizing Through Self Credit

This morning I awoke to a question from a member of a biblical study group I'm involved in. The person asked if any of us wrote books on biblical criticism, no matter how light-hearted, and if those of us who did, felt the need to use a pseudonym or used our real name. The person...
