This area is provided as a service to qualified individuals who subscribe to the AR-talk mailing list. AR-talk is not meant as a forum for debate, but rather as a place to share information about apologetics resources. A companion list, AR-vent, is meant for extended discussions. As neither list allows for the inclusion of attachments or the posting of full-length articles, I am offering this space for the publication of such items.
