A former editorialist and columnist, I hold a Ph.D. in classics with a minor in religious studies. A synopsis of my dissertation can be found here. I live in Minneapolis with my wife, daughter, and baby son, and we are proud members of Plymouth Congregational Church. This blog is named after the column I wrote for the Northwest Arkansas Times in Fayetteville, Ark., from 2001-2005, where it was reprinted on occasion by publications as diverse as the National Center for Science Education (Vol. 20 No. 5) and the Texas Baptists Committed. A rather large selection of my columns is available for download as an eBook.
