I wanted an Ask Science Mike logo t-shirt to wear to Dragon con in September, but there are none for sale. Took advantage of a day off to create some fan art from a thrift store t-shirt and some fabric paint. I'm pretty happy with it. @mike
Today is Good Friday and Bicycle Day with is basically the most #TheLiturgists day possible.
Such a privilege & a joy to meet up with @mike for lunch & drinks today. So much fun!
You can beleive whatever you want to believe about the morality of various sexual orientations and gender identies. On social.theliturgists.com, honest questions are always welcome (assuming they are behind a content warning).
Telling people you don’t approve of their orientation or gender identity is not allowed. Full stop. This is an affirming environment.
This include telling people “the Bible” or “God” doesn’t approve of them.
Violations earn a one-way ticket to Bans-ville.
A new app just lauched today that helps automate secutiry and privacy on Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Amazon. I’m trying it out, and if they’re honest about the app architecture, this could be a really great service. It’s called Jumbo.

Seen on the greater fediverse (@intherain):
"If you’re looking for an ethical or open source or privacy-preserving alternative to just about any online service, here is a surprisingly comprehensive list: https://ethical.net/resources/
There were a few things missing, but there was also a ton of stuff I hadn't heard of before."
@mike you might find this useful in your quest to de-evil your social media experience (if you aren't already aware of it).

New #AskScienceMike this week, featuring some actual science questions (in addition to faith and life advice stuff). https://asksciencemike.podbean.com/e/episode-176-selection-strategies-teleportation-and-libido-during-grief/
@mike, I enjoyed hearing you talk about selection strategies on the latest #AskScienceMike, but was sad you didn't take a tangent into one of my favourite evolutionary concepts, the red queen hypothesis. If you don't know it, I think you will love it https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/sex/advantage/page03.html. I also thought you'd enjoy a bit of adaptive dynamics and evolutionary suicide so here is another link https://ercim-news.ercim.eu/en73/special/evolutionary-suicide
Liturgist fam-I need help finding a children’s book or 5 that feature interracial parents/families! Particularly if the mother is white and the father is black. The book(s) doesn’t have to be about interracial families necessarily, just looking for illustrations that depict such a family. Thanks in advance!
@mike Im listening to your interview on jen hatmakers pod and the story presents itself in my brain "Mike went through all of that so that he could start the liturgists and be so helpful to so many of us" but then this is the liturgists so were all like "naaaaaaaaaaaaa there aren't reasons for things that happen.... thats our prefrontal cortex trying to build narrative to convince us we are the center of the universe"
Hey #buddhist6 patrons, part 3 is on Patreon now and will be public in a week. I’m looking forward to this.
Thank you, @vishnu and @mike for your willingness and openness to take on topics that may not be easy or comfortable. This series has generated a lot of great conversation here that may not have taken place without you taking a chance.
I released a new #AskScienceMike on science literacty today. I hope people listen, because wow, we need more science literacy these days. https://asksciencemike.podbean.com/e/episode-175-science/
