This is not your usual dense, boring blog about theology, atheism, and science. Yale and Duke degrees, combined with a passion for improv comedy and pop culture, brought me down this path. It’s time to open up conversations on these important topics to everyone. Verbosity isn’t a virtue.
My goal is to become the Bill Simmons of atheist/Christian dialogue. Here, you’ll find the latest news presented in an understandable way—and sprinkled with attempts at humor. I have several categories:
- A weekly buzz post every Monday morning, highlighting the most interesting developments in the past week.
- Mailbags, with responses to your questions and thoughts.
- Concise reflections that generate challenging, yet respectful, debates in the comment section.
I chose the name Jesus and Dawkins after seeing Surian Soosay’s incredible picture of the two, which I cropped a bit on the homepage. As you can see above, I have also met Richard Dawkins. Oh, and I’m the guy closing his eyes in the picture.
(I don’t have Richard Dawkins’s endorsement or any kind of official connection to him. I just appreciate him bringing atheist/Christian dialogue to the public square. My hope is to generate honest dialogue about Christianity, atheism, and science. )
