How do people respond when an American Muslim is denied service in a bakery? ABC News did a little experiment:
In terms of deism v. atheism, as an agnostic I’d say that deism is the more appealing position. If atheism is true, afterall, then the universe doesn’t, in any ultimate sense, really cohere, and that’s a sad thought (to think … Continue reading
