SSA Week Day 4: My Picks

SSA Week is ongoing, as atheist bloggers come together to raise money for the Secular Student Alliance. At the time this post was published, they’ve collectively raised $61,250 out of a goal of $100,000. (Hmm. Didn’t I write yesterday that the total amount was over $65,000? Either it’s somehow gone down or, more likely, I wrote it wrong. Ah well.)

Here’s the cream of the crop from yesterday’s blogathon!

First up: Chana Messinger, author of The Merely Real (great blog title!). My favorite of her blogathon posts was Is there an Is/Ought Distinction? (her answer: no), which I selfishly had to like because it’s in accord with something I’ve been saying for a long time.

Next: Andrew Tripp, author of Considered Exclamations (another excellent title). He has some well-chosen words on why the high school atheist movement is awesome.

And lastly for today, the incomparable Greta Christina, author of Greta Christina’s Blog (OK, not the most creative title, but we all love her anyway). My pick was Living in a Neighborhood, a nostalgic meditation of what kind of communities most improve our lives in the world.

SSA Week continues! If you want to support the SSA, click here to contribute. And if you do, leave a comment below or send me an e-mail letting me know you chipped in and for how much. I may just have a special gift for the top contributors…
