Interview- Richard Wade (part 1)

Hello, friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start. It is St. Patrick’s Day weekend and, while I’m not Catholic, I do love good luck and a good green beer. Speaking of luck, I’m excited to present the first part of an interview that I’ve been anticipating for weeks! Richard Wade writes […]


Last week I poked some holes in Duncan’s trilemma, the argument that Jesus was either god, a liar, or a madman. This week I’d like to explore further. Is it possible that Jesus’ supposed claim of divinity can be whittled down to only three possible motivators? I doubt it. I will be sharing an additional […]

Does Alzheimer’s Debunk the Soul?

 You walk into a room, intent on grabbing something, but forget what it was the minute you get there. You stand there, shocked for a minute, scanning the possibilities and hoping something will pop into view and spark your memory. But alas, it does not. Pissed, you initiate a demeaning conversation with your brain. “Five […]
