Last Sunday, June 11, 2006. Cassandra Cox, The Atheist Mama, hosted “The Carnival of the Godless.” “The Carnival of the Godless” is similar to the “Biblical Studies Carnival” that is held monthly by the Bibliobloggers.
According to The Atheist Mama, Steve at the Speculative Catholic nominated my blog because of a recent dialog I had with Martin Rundkvist. Steve, however, denies that he was the source of the nomination (click here to read about Steve’s denial).
Cassandra wrote: “Apparently there is a race to get to the top of Technorati's Archaeology blog list. The race is between an Evangelical and a Skeptic.”
I was not aware that there was a race until Martin wrote a blog in which he claimed that he had passed me on the Technorati's Archaeology blog list. Martin and I wrote back and forth about my views of God. The last time I checked, Martin is on top again and for that I congratulate him.
So, I thank The Atheist Mama for including me in The Carnival of the Godless and I welcome the godless to my blog.
