Maybe! I'm job hunting and moving within a few months, so if I do launch something, it will be after the move. That will occur in August/September sometime. I'll keep y'all posted!

So a father disciplining his children is just him acting like a school-yard bully? Because if God exists, then we are His children, giving Him every moral right in the universe. He's not some random...

Religion and science/logic are not compatible because all religious premises are based on anecdotes or religious literature that is of questionable origin. So I think we've beat...

And here's where I disagree. I say that Evil was not created by God and is co-eternal with God. God cannot remove Evil, and anywhere God is, Evil is. Good cannot exist without Evil, and vice versa.
