Great interview, I just left a long comment on his blog, I hope he approves it and we can talk.

I saw you from a distance yesterday, I was in the upper level at the Bill Nye event, I hope to get a chance to meet you in person someday.

Cheers.

I like the idea of making apps and games to support critical thinking. I wrote an Android app called "Does God Exist?" to encourage people to think about whether the evidence is consistent with a god or not. To my surprise, it earned me a fair amount of vitriol from dogmatists on both the religious and atheist sides. Apparently the idea that one might assign a probability to a god's existence based on evaluation of evidence offends some atheists, even some who purport to be scientists.

I was thinking about writing another app that would guide people through the outsider test of faith, but based on this experience decided not to bother. I hope you'll have better luck.

An important video that explains the differences among the words faith, trust, and hope.

Another thing: I think Arron's question "What is your objective standard for evaluating whether evidence is sufficient, or not?" goes right into the heart of the matter and you didn't really answer it because he asked so many questions at one. So how would you answer it?
