Swimming Into New Waters

I'm Timmo, and I have been invited to post as a guest blogger alongside The Bum (Larry). I am happy and excited for the opportunity to exchange ideas with The Bum in this context. Blogs are an excellent medium for dialog, and my hope is that this exchange will be illuminating.

A little bit about myself: I am a university student studying physics and philosophy. After I graduate in a few months, I intend to continue studying at graduate school to become a scientist. I'm a big nerd and I am in love with (mathematical and philosophical) logic and bad movies. I maintain a blog, The Remarks of a Fish, here.

In light of the Harris-Sullivan debate, the main item on the agenda is religious faith. Shortly, I'll cross-post on this.




  1. Thank you, Timmo, and welcome to The Barefoot Bum.

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
