The Return of the Atheologian

People don't rise from the dead, but occasionally blogs do.

Welcome back, Mark!

Are you still in the military?

Doing something with those extra letters after your name?

I finished up the active duty part of my contract way back in April 2007, but I'll be in the Individual Ready Reserve until November 2010. President Obama has not, to my knowledge, rescinded Bush's executive order authorizing the recall of 2nd and 3rd year IRRs, so as far as I know, the Marine Corps can still recall me anytime up to November of this year.

I'm working as a faculty associate at Arizona State University right now, but I'm not sure how much longer it will last, since state budget problems are giving the university system a serious hammering, and I'm all the way at the bottom of the totem pole. Whatever happens, it has been the best job I have ever had: how wonderful, to be able to make a living, for any amount of time at all, teaching others about philosophy!
