Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com.

You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Which are some of the Non Trinitarian sects in Christianity
I'm going to retract my "list question" label. But I still think this question ought to be closed since Wikipedia answers it well.

comment In which denominations is naturism unacceptable?
I'm voting to close because I think that it merely sets up a strawman to be knocked down. As the accepted answer points out, it's hard to identify which people find naturism wrong for societal reasons and which think it's a sin.

comment What traditions believe that a woman's relationship with God must go through some man and how do they support it from the Bible?
I'm voting to close because I think its not constructive to ask primarily who believes this. Rather, I think asking where the belief came from or how it's supported from the Bible are more constructive.

comment How may we reconcile the Blessed Virgin Mary's maturity with her age?
@jayyeshu: Heh. That's a good and valid criticism. However, the question does not frame the question in any particular Christian tradition, so it might be better to say there's something amiss with the question. (To be fair, I do believe that Luke was speaking with the power of the Holy Spirit as he wrote. Mary's son is profitable for study for that very reason.)

comment How may we reconcile the Blessed Virgin Mary's maturity with her age?
We know surprisingly little of the education of girls in first century. I don't think we need to go so far as to put Mary in the Temple at an early age; her father and/or mother could easily have instructed her in Hannah's prayer. (The comparison between the two is inspired!)

comment According to the Roman Catholic church, who can baptize a new believer?
I'm trying to find it, but I recall hearing about a case of a shopkeeper who shot an armed robber and them administered an emergency baptism with bottled water. My understanding is that as long as there is water and a member of the Catholic church says the right words, anyone can perform a baptism in an emergency situation.

You might consider asking a version of this question on Philosophy. Folks over there might have better knowledge of the history of arguments for and against God.
