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.

I was a call-in guest on the Atheist Experience. I spoke with Matt Dillahunty about the Principle of Sufficient Reason. He ended the call abruptly. I’m 100% certain that there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for his behavior.
