Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?!?

When David first proposed that I write for Dogma Debate, I was excited at the prospect of being able to offer philosophical, psychological, and scientific discussions to a group of astute, sharp individuals (that would be YOU the 4th Listener!).

Is Dogma Debate Worth $1.00?

Dogma Debate has between 18,000-30,000 unique listeners per episode!

She confidently said “The moon made them.” I followed by asking “Then where did the moon come from?” She strongly asserted “Daddy, the moon is the boss. Nobody made the moon.” This is an unmistakably familiar mindset; and
