It’s only been three weeks since our last roll call of subscribers, and since then we’ve added one and lost one; sadly, the one that is lost was an Andromeda subscriber, whom we will miss. We are still at 138 total.
On the other hand, the number of folks who have signed up to be notified of new postings has jumped from 8776 to 8870, so that’s a healthy gain. I hope some of you will be inspired to support our work by subscribing, be it at the Pleiades, Hercules, or Andromeda levels!
In July I had a couple of fun trips, first to Minneapolis for the Convergence science fiction convention (where I was a guest of honor) and then to the SciFoo techie “camp” hosted by Google, Nature, and O’Reilly the tech publishers. Old friends, new friends, fun talks, good food! Now I am back in Rome, and next Monday I’ll be off to Ireland, first for a vacation and then for the World Science Fiction Convention in Dublin.
Now, on to the title of this entry: who was the man who the spotted the origin of atheism? He was a prominent Jesuit theologian whom I got to know when he directed a reading course in theology for me, and the source of a number of fun stories, only some of which are apocryphal!
