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 […]

Hexalemma

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.

UnHitched

  “If you leave me, you’re worthless.” “No matter how hard you try to be good, you’ll never be good enough.” “Don’t be proud of any of your accomplishments. If not for me, you’d be a nobody.” “You have to put me first, before anything or anyone else.” “If you don’t marry me, I will […]
