Best of the Infidel, 2007

Recently passing the 1,000-posting mark has brought home the realization that 1,000 is a heck of a lot of postings. So at the risk of appearing to blow my own horn, I thought I'd put together a list of the ones I think are most worth reading. This is just for 2007. I'll do the same for 2006 later.

How to argue on the internet

Cultural appeasement

Fermi's Paradox

My trip to Kiev (see also here and here)

Why the rightist and leftist lunatic fringes aren't the same
