I’m off work/school today: let’s talk politics, science, philosophy, what-have-you.

Hit me up.

Hey fellow tumblr peeps. I write sometimes. Check out my first posting on the incipient political news site PolitiProgressive where I will be a regular opinion writer.

I have mixed feelings about school commencing this semester only because I have all of these I want to finish and now I must soon focus my efforts on university.

Hey atheists who try and argue about Christmas trees being in public parks? You are stupid and ruining our good name.

Hey atheist groups who are doing the same thing?
You are even dumber and aren’t using your reason and logic.

The counterrevolutionary books, tirades, and who-knows-what-else, are sure to be on the rise in the next decade.

This is an important time in U.S. history.
Let’s keep this train moving forward (on alternative energy)!

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

I know this buddy. Your post just compelled me to right down some of my thoughts. I know you are open to learning and different perspectives. You are right that a lot of people haven’t heard of the term - another example of our privilege. White people that surround themselves by mostly, or all white people, can go their whole lives without having to really think about race or how it matters and is played out in our society.

Let’s talk.

I have lots of followers who I haven’t talked to. Let’s talk.

How is your day going? Week? Month? Year?
Anything on your mind?
Any cool book recommendations? Films? Music?
Anything you want to ask me?

The world will radicalize you eventually.
If you’re paying attention.

Churches seek to Reclaim the Religiously Unaffiliated
by Tim Townsend, for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.


I meant to blog about my Wed night actually - it was quite fun. I saw Stephen Pinker speak and met a couple of people from the Skeptical Society of St. Louis and Mr. Townsend was there, the editor of the religious section of the St. Louis Post Dispatch. My name’s Patrick Foran by the way, for all of those who follow me and don’t know. Not the Rev. Patrick who’s also mentioned in the article. Noooooooooo.

P.S. Is is tasteful to post stuff that mentions you? Eh. I never said I had taste.

P.S.S. - I was hoping it wouldn’t be an Dawkins-worshipping article, and it’s not. In fact, it’s mostly about how church leaders are trying to reign Millennials back to the church. I did mention that reading Dawkins, and more importantly, that just simply thinking about the questions that I first heard proposed by Dawkins, when I heard them years ago, had a huge effect on my thinking. I too, like most of my fellow tumblr friends, have many conflicting view on Dawkins.
