Atheist/Skeptic Dialogue, Strand 1, "Robert's Rules of Order" edition
Strand 1 of the Atheist/Skeptic Dialogue is going nowhere fast. People are getting hung up on the definition of satire and the right of reply and a bunch of other crap which seems utterly tangential to me, which apparently means that I've completely missed the subtext of the discussion. Reading the comments at Stephanie's blog it has become clear that Strand 1, at least, is a front in an ongoing war between two (three? four?) factions over moderation fascism and whether it's ok to photoshop someone's head onto a cow (or something). Not interesting. Maybe I'll check in again if/when Strand 2 starts.
