Best of the Infidel, 2022

There's evidence that Americans are not as politically polarized as is commonly believed.

Religion is a threat to freedom, but we can resist.

I collected a few thoughts from the bright minds.

Putin violated the principle of fixed borders which has helped keep the peace since 1945.

Russia isn't really a superpower.

Authoritarian rule is a formula for failure.

I had some thoughts about my own mortality.

Putin's attack on Ukraine was an attempt to push the world back into the pre-1945 age of wars and changeable borders.

I speak only for myself, not for any ideology or party.

The nastiness of pornography is destroying sex.

The Bible strongly implies that God is not omnipotent, and is a liar.

Who is a fake Christian?

I analyze the Texas Republican party platform.

The Supreme Court has become a mere tool of theocracy.

Keep America's present-day problems in perspective.

I respond to a Christian's seven questions for atheists.

Are we living in immoral times?

Christianization of politics inevitably means self-delusion and attacks on democracy.

I assess the Kansas abortion referendum.

Russia losing in Ukraine means a win for freedom.

I can't take religion seriously.

Amazon's Rings of Power is the latest example of the corporatization of culture.

Life in a post-apocalyptic world wouldn't be worth living.

Real freedom isn't what libertarians think.

Labeling things and people can obscure our understanding.

I observe Blasphemy Day International.

There's a global struggle between freedom and tyranny.

India, not China, is Asia's land of potential.

Puritanical authoritarians commit rampant sexual abuse.

Despite the encouraging election result, the Democrats face looming problems in the future.

Don't fall for the Chinese regime's bullshit.

Saturn's moon Enceladus seems like a favorable environment for life to exist.

The betrayal of US railroad workers was a defining failure for Biden and for the left as a whole.
