The Pages, They Are A-Changin’

It’s a busy day today, including a website redesign and two new (short) essays.

The website redesign is a result of me noticing that I by now have a lot of pages, and the page menu to the left was quite disorganized. I therefore have grouped the various essays I have written into themes, and only the top theme pages are listed in the main menu to the right. I would love some feedback on whether this approach works, or if there is a better way to handle it.

For the last two years I have participated in National Ask an Atheist Day, an opportunity for secular people to invite questions about any topic that people might be curious about. Both years I have received some exceptional questions. This year, I have adapted some of my responses into short essays that I think will be of general interest. They are:

As always, I welcome any and all comments, questions, and suggestions.

That said, I am somewhat disappointed that my last essay received nary a comment, particularly since it was deliberately provocative. I very much would like some feedback on the argument, so I am once again going to link to it here. It is I Don’t Believe in Heaven, and Neither do You.

Back in the Saddle

Well, it has been a while, hasn’t it?

I apologize for the long pause in updates. I found myself in an online debate several months ago which started to go in circles. I lost interest in continuing the debate, but nonetheless was feeling an obligation to do so, and thus wasn’t able to convince myself to either end it or to shift my attention back to the blog. Eventually I realized that this was unsustainable, and so bowed out of the debate. And here I am, two days later, trying to regain some momentum on ConvertTheAtheist.

I have just posted a new, short essay titled, “I Don’t Believe in Heaven, and Neither Do You.” I hope that it provides some food for thought, and as always I welcome any feedback. Enjoy!

Edit: Originally I had mistakenly posted the essay as a blog post rather than a page. I have fixed this mistake. Sorry for the confusion, if there was any.
