Home! And Q&A

Hey everyone! I'm finally back in good ol' West Lafayette. Flights went well and I have a couple stories to tell, but right now I'm just going to enter a vegetative state and skim through my 250+ blog posts I've accumulated. Oi. Look for real posts later tonight or tomorrow.

Though on a semi-real note, I need something from you guys. I'll be in Alaska from June 24th to July 5th to attend the American Society of Mammalogists meetings and to go hiking. I have no idea how much internet access I'll have - it'll probably be somewhere between limited or absolutely none. I want to prepare some posts before I leave so you don't have a big drought, and I don't want to just post silly videos.

This is where I need you. Let's have a little Q&A session. Either comment here with a question you'd like me to answer, or email me at jmccreig(at) with "Blag Hag" in the title somewhere. You can ask whatever you want no matter if it's atheism/biology/blog related or something absolutely random. I figure you guys haven't known me for very long, so there's a lot you can ask. I'll pick my favorites to answer. Don't be afraid to be silly or philosophical, but also don't expect me to dole out my credit card number or something.

Or if this is totally lame, I guess you can just ignore my blog from June 24th to July 5th. But I hope you won't do that!


  1. OK, guess I'll start. You describe yourself, presumably tongue in cheek, as a "perverted atheist". I do think there is a special relationship between naturalistic thinking (inc. atheism) and sex positivty: how do you see the relationship? Have you encountered much sex-negativity in atheists that's an underlying hangup from their religious days (or the religious tone society is drenched with anyways)? What's your best counter to the related fundie claim that we're all atheists to just "satisfy our sinful lusts"?

  2. Clearly you are misinformed Michael.
    Fact: Evangelicals have the best sex.

  3. Well I guess good ole Ted Haggard sure did!
