God Is Unfair – An Accident of History and Geography Syllogism
Reading Time: 3 minutes I am about 21,000 words into a new book I decided to write last week, which is fun.

Reading Time: 6 minutes God’s divine foreknowledge has recently raised its interesting head over the last few comment threads and I thought it would be interesting to return to the subject again.
