Back to Constantine (or the Apostle Paul!), Christians have always loved dramatic celebrity conversions to their tribe (though in fairness, most folk do). So it is not surprising that Christian apologists are celebrating Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s conversion to Christianity which she anounced yesterday in an essay simply titled “Why I am now a Christian.” For […]

On September 22, 2023, I presented a lecture at Eastern University titled “Atheists Who Love God.” One of the audience members, David Gray, recorded the lecture from his seat and kindly sent me the file.

A summary of my new book: God, Science, Ideology (GSI) makes the argument that New atheism is not scientific in its appraisal of God belief, but uses science ideologically. I begin with a discussion of what scientism is, the name I used to […]
