Dr David Pohlmann on School Chaplaincy
Dr David Pohlmann has extensive experience as a school chaplain. After taking up my invitation to discuss the issue, I attended his church and recorded the interview herein. Halfway through I bring SRE to the table in a moment of brain but Dr Pohlmann corrects the flub and gets things back on course. While my network is limited, Dr Pohlmann is the first Christian to take up my invitation to discuss religious incursions into our public schools. If you know someone who'd be willing to speak publicly on SRI or any of the variations on the acronym, please ask them to get in touch.

Before getting his head down for some much needed sleep, we discussed what might constitute compelling evidence of a deity.Theists often ask atheists what it would take to convince them of the veracity of their religious claims. I encourage atheists to think hard about the question and have some answers at the ready. Hopefully, Peter Boghossian's thoughts on the matter might help spur some ideas.
