It is my hope that this forum will encourage people to challenge themselves by engaging in ongoing learning, critical thinking, vigorous inquiry and substantial conversation about important and relevant topics. No subject is off limits. If you see something that offends you, kindly scroll by. Whether they are areas of science or philosophy; spirituality or social justice; civil liberties or secular governance; local, national or global issues; public policy or environmentalism, I hope that this forum will be a catalyst for informed thinking and effective action. I love a good troll, but use your discretion.
