It's good to hear from you again Bill. Yup, I'm the same person you remember from Sam Harris's board. I haven't been there in forever -- kinda got tired of debating people who would neither use nor listen to logic. It's just tiresome to engage in a debate using logic vs. a person whose arguments attempt to sound logical, but which in reality are based on something else entirely. That and I did another tour in Iraq. (Or maybe two more tours-- I can't remember specifically when I was on Harris's board -- '07? ' 08?)
In any event, thanks for your note. As should be apparent, I'm new to this forum. But hopefully it will prove to be a more enriching experience than some of my past fruitless debates.
