  • An update on the current status of Dennis “Dave Mabus” Markuze [pictured]. (If the name doesn’t ring a bell … good.)

  • Why do people keep trying to link atheism to high-functioning autism (aka Asperger’s)? (Better yet, why do some think it’s a mark against atheists?) Aspies’ brains are wired to favor logic over emotion; if anything, their conclusions are generally more reliable, less prone to emotional contamination. (Not that I’m biased, of course …)
