For some reason this post is getting a lot of traffic today. “Tearing Down Strongholds” by Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. is a good read if want to learn about the fallacies of behaviorism.

    I like your blog. I think you would do well to put a photo and bio up, though. Most people only get interested in really reading if they “know” who someone is. I found you via a comment at Challies on his homeschool series. So you homeschool? I saw you putting a link to a bunch of global warming articles. What are your thoughts on that? The Homeschool Blog Awards are coming up… be sure to check them out and nominate/vote. Especially if you know some good homeschool dad blogs (like yourself). I’m sure that category will be light – since most of the homeschooling parents who blog about their homeschooling experiences are moms… and not many of us know many dad homeschoolers.

    Thanks for your time. Keep up the good work… and fill out your “About” tab!
