A note on Mark Steyn

Mark Steyn features in a couple of the links which will appear soon in a 14th Anniversary post for this blog, but I'm not waiting for February 19th to post this bit. This Just In! - A Cockwomble Reaches for The Hockey Stick Steyn could use your help defending himself, and the First Amendment, against… Continue reading A note on Mark Steyn

Dr. Jordan Peterson

The video clip below is about 5 minutes of a longer interview I recommend to you. It’s a segment discussing the difference between scientific truth and religious truth.
