I reached out to Mr. Cutsinger because, as I discovered on YouTube, he boldly defends the soundness and validity of St. Anselm’s Ontological Argument. He was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in July of 2017, and yet very kindly agreed to speak with me using his one functional vocal cord. I am touched by his patience and kindness.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Orthodox – 2019-01-18 – James Cutsinger”

I met John on Facebook. He is a family man who teaches Philosophy at John Abbott College. He is a colorful character with a very open mind, but he chooses to identify as Christian. I enjoyed listening to him talk, and hope to have him back. Lots of fun.
