Appearing to the 500-Plus: Debating the Evidence.

Reading Time: 2 minutes As I sure you are all aware, Twitter is the best place to have a debate concerning biblical historicity and epistemology. It really lends itself, as a platform, to robust debates that can bring into play the best arguments and the most robust defences, together with top sources. I really don’t so Twitter very much. […]

What Is Fairness? Tackling Verbose Stoic’s Mission.

Reading Time: 7 minutes In my recent series about the unevenness of evidence apportioning throughout time and place, Verbose Stoic (VB) called me out on my claim about fairness.

Reading Time: 6 minutes I am, brought on by a section on phenomenology in a forthcoming book, looking back into the school of philosophy known as idealism. It’s been a long time since I have written and researched on this particular subject and I am enjoying it immensely. What are phenomenology and idealism?
