So, obviously that last PVM post never got written. (The short version – assuming that the Abrahamic religions are complete nonsense because they happen to be wrong about the “mono” part of monotheism makes no sense from a polytheistic perspective. There was going to be more, but that’s the core of the argument: if there are many Gods, then who’s to say that only theirs doesn’t exist?)
My on call ends tomorrow morning, and I will have the day off, so I expect to have time to write a nice, juicy Independence Day post then. In the meantime, I’d like to point you to a lovely post about the value of handwork, by the ever-thoughtful Sharon Astyk.
