His reading interests include history, general science, archaeology, comparative religion, psychology, & sociology. Other interests and hobbies include practicing various crafts, torturing his slave, blogging, playing with his dogs, collecting antiques, role playing & tactical simulation games, renaissance fairs, and cheerfully making other people miserable by holding up a mirror of their shortcomings and repeatedly bashing them in the face with it.

An Open Letter Concerning RockingMrE

Originally posted on my blog SkepTex on 12/13/12

Recently I began commenting on YouTube videos. I have found a small number of them which I find entertaining and informative, and wish to interact with other like minded people. This is one of those videos. The vlogger is known as RockingMrE, and I encourage everyone to watch it and others of his. The subject matter is same sex marriage, and MrE constructs an argument against it. It is a compelling argument, and one which I agree with on almost every point. My single point of disagreement is a weakness in his argument which will be used against anyone attempting to use his argument. I attempted to point this flaw in reasoning to him and others commenting there.
