Sacrificing intellectual honesty to be liked.

What is “Name the biggest sin, Alex?”

Brian Keith Dalton’s new series,“The God Distraction” and this beauty On being an “atheist fundamentalist”, demonstrate what is required to move forward in the life of a public intellectual.

Straightforward, honest, unapologetic speaking of one’s truth.

Dalton may laugh at being labeled an intellectual,mbut these two videos are a new line of discussion, breaking a logjam in atheist/religious debate.  Very clever rhetoric, and I hope also effective.

More later.  THIS cuts to the nut of the problems in our discourse.
