Though it may be an exercise in futility, I am going to try to be more organized and methodical about posting in 2009. Here are the four goals I have for the coming year:
I will attempt to offer semi-timely responses to the big events of the year. I say "semi-timely" because my commitment here will be to prioritize a thoughtful interpretation over just getting something out there quickly.
I will be more disciplined about addressing the claims of the (so-called) New Atheists. I say this for two reasons. First and foremost, the topics swirling around the New Atheist beehive are extremely important and relevant, especially to those who I am most passionate about reaching -- the high school and college students who are most vulnerable to their implications. Second, some have expressed a real interest and appreciation for discussing these issues.
I will do my best to make my posts shorter and spread longer treatments of the issues over several posts instead of putting up posts that are too long-winded or hard to follow.
I will try to provide a theme for the month and, as best I can, stick to it. Here is my plan for the first half of the year:
- January: Doubt
- February: Darwinism (This month is the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth)
- March: Defending Life
- April: Technology and Humanity
- May: Technology and Humanity
- June: The Real Jesus
In the meantime I wish all a Happy New Year and look forward to bantering with you and seeking the Truth together in 2009.
