Welcome! I am expecting some of you are here because of the recent episode of Unbelievable? that I was on. I am writing this a few days before it goes live and publishing it the day afterwards. This is strange for me as I very rarely release blog posts within a few days after writing … Continue reading Who cut the String?
Is my level of evidence higher than God could/would ever fulfil? It's an interesting question. One I think we should all ask ourselves regularly. What level of evidence do we require to claim something as 'true'? What level of evidence do we need to shake us from the current world view that we hold? How … Continue reading Is the evidence in?

So, Christmas is a thing, right? Most of us look forward to it, a time when we can (maybe) stop for a few days to reflect and spend time with family. Food, drink and festivities all take centre stage, wondering if the turkey will be dry like last year, or what it will be like … Continue reading A Christless Christmas (2020)
It's odd really, I found the book to shake me to my very core and open up my eyes to situations and a variety of perspectives of the world that I have never recognised are there before. Being a white English male in their early 30's and being raised in a predominantly white area for … Continue reading Book Review: The Strange Death of Europe
I've been listening to a lot of podcasts recently. Trying to work through the backlogs of both 'Unbelievable?' and 'The Thinking Atheist' especially. I love these two podcasts, as they draw in a variety of guests, ideas and discussions. I also enjoy having one Christian podcast and one Atheist podcast - feels like a fairer … Continue reading Convinced about God…
Keep in mind that you are reading this post ten months after it was written. It's been an odd few weeks. The blog, to me, has only been live for a month and I feel as though it really hasn't been as big a deal as I had built it up to be in my … Continue reading Not a Big Deal
I have read this book a couple of times now, usually in January as it is a healthy reminder of why it is so important to defend belief based on evidence rather than faith, and why we should be challenging the religiously moderate around us. I have already reviewed two other books by Sam Harris … Continue reading Book Review: Letter To A Christian Nation
Things have been fairly tough for me recently. I mean, I am writing this on my 31st birthday, at the end of my tether with my children and feeling down about the fact that I have to go to work tomorrow to a job that I am really not enjoying right now. I know these … Continue reading Doubting the doubt…
