I blog about humanism, atheism, religion, history, and creativity. I’m interested in the human mind–how we think about things, and the stories we tell ourselves. Some posts will respond to current events; others will just be about things I’ve been thinking about. See my introductory post to learn more.
About the banner: left to right are: Pope Leo XIII (nothing special about him; I just like his hat that looks like a pincushion); Henry VIII and his codpiece; an old photo of me dressed like J. P. Morgan; and Napoleon Bonaparte. Or, a religious leader, king, businessman, and general–four of the most popular flavors of human pretentiousness, wearing four varieties of silly hats.
