Stump an Atheist

I'm going to give a plug to this new blog created by Ryan Benson, which advocates an atheist perspective by answering questions from the public. From what I've read, Ryan is giving thoughtful, civil, and rather comprehensive answers, and this may well be one of the most effective ways to get the point across.

Go and check it out for yourself - you might like it.

The site has "designed by AJOOMLA.COM" on it.

Not a good advert for them : it doesn't work!

Lawrence Krauss said on a recent NPR podcast that there is research showing that confrontation is very successful at getting people to change their beliefs. Not sure what he was referencing, but I'd love to know.

I have been reading it all afternoon. It's rather nice. he's quite friendly about it all, but doesn't shy away from most points. having spent a share of time reading the PZs and Ophelia's of this world, I'd argue he doesn't quite go in hard enough on some arguments and maybe lets too much slide, but it's nonetheless well worth a read, and puts things well, in layman's terms, as it were.
