After much reflection I have decided to delete two posts from this past week, “A most surprising exchange: The first atheist review of my new heaven book” and “Arguing with the ignorant”. I regret the direction the conversation took in the articles and ensuing threaded discussions. It was not edifying or illuminating and generated more heat than light. Since this is my blog, I must own the lion’s share of the blame.
My apologies to those who value the comments they labored to type which they now find lost to posterity. But this strikes me as an important first step in cleaning house and setting the blog on a new road to being a positive forum for critical reflection and mutually enriching discussion.
