Remarkable journey! His awakening is inspiring. Since 2018, I too have been deconstructing my religion (raised in the Pentecostal church).

Topher Hollander ,

Average of a 4 and 0

Prior to covid, I’d have given this 4 stars and now zero. Paul has always loved to hear himself talk and he used to have a lot of great stuff to say even when it wasn’t grounded in established scientific or even spiritual logic. Over the last year, he’s taken a nosedive into pseudoscience, antivaxxer propaganda, and conspiracy theories. I still listen here and there in the hope that he will wake up.
