Who knows what?

Part of my own process for teaching is figuring out what I know that is useful to share, but another part is thinking about what the person or people I’m talking to, and where they’re coming from. This is something people in various Pagan communities […]

Some Thoughts on Dolezal

I like to keep an eye on Thomists. In my estimation, Thomism affords the most intellectually rigorous system of thought for monotheists. That isn’t to say that Thomism is true or reasonable, only that I think if one insists on being monotheist, they ought to […]
