So I clicked my stats page just now and noticed a referral from some outfit called Daylight Atheism. Specifically an open thread asking readers to recommend “religious” blogs to read. Some dear commenter had chimed in with the following recommendation:
Well, if you want the more fundamentalist side of the spectrum, there is
a blog I read sometimes just to see how things look through the looking glass. The thing I find fascinating about this one is that the author is not stupid, in fact actually quite smart and pretty well written, but is in the position of having to defend impossible things because of his religion.
The blog is mostly about the errors of liberal Christians, and the supposed failings of any science that doesn’t support his reading of the Bible. He’s a strict YEC….so I don’t know if this qualifies as having a “reasonable degree of connection to reality” or not.
I had to snicker at his comment, “but is in the position of having to defend impossible things because of his religion.” I know, it’s so hard. Unlike impossible things atheists have to defend like spontaneous regeneration.
Anyhow. I’m glad to see the “free thinkers” have dared to venture outside their bubble. If any of you folks nervously clicked the link and cross over through the looking glass finding your way here, may I suggest a few other blogs that may not have gotten mentioned:
I’m sure readers may offer more suggestions, though many other blogs can be found in my side bar.
I welcome any and all who have moved outside their comfort zone and I give a hearty thanks to “Dguy” (David?) who left the kind regards and recommendation.
