You're welcome to on Twitter. I check geoffsshorts at quite frequently, though it's often some time before I'm free to reply.

I read all comments. Regrettably I don't always have time to reply. If I haven't gotten back to you it's most likely I don't feel smart enough to give you a proper response - please don't take it personally. I have a day job.

If you'd like to reuse my material in whole or in part I'm generally game, but please pop me a mail with your intentions first. To date I've never said no. I'm always interested in seeing another blogger's take on the stats presented and am generally happy to provide images and source data. I'm especially happy to do this for folks who don't share my viewpoints.

I certainly welcome those who want to share their faith with me, but I find e-mail conversations can end up covering a lot of the same ground and time delays can reduce their impact. For that reason I'd prefer to stick with Skype chats. Preference will be given to those who would like to share at least some of our conversation on YouTube for the benefit of others, but happy to do a few private chats as well.

I'd like to do do another radio show: I enjoyed the experience. I'm open to the idea of debates, discussions, or giving my street preachers talk to another group. No, I don't charge. Tea and biscuits would be nice though.

hi Geoff
Had been in touch on twitter but my account was hacked again for 3rd time on the 6the January.
I took the usual steps then today set up a new account under the name Yc Whelan and that was hacked within hours.Are the pro life catholic gremlins at work.
I found it so frustrating during the hearings.
the first time twitter was hscked I was notified that it happened from the USA .

My Facebook was also hacked into brazenly by Family and life posing as coming from my GP Slievemore saying my GP was a friend of pro life and had participated in the pro life vigil it was also accompanied by their horrible pictures.
Can you just imagine if I was a pregnant woman attending that GP clinic and gig this on my Facebook page.Anyone . Else have this happen to them

Hi Geoff, I did not read all of your article but I got the impression that you are skeptical about miracles. I just want you to know that I have met a woman who experienced an amazing miracle, and she has before and after medical reports including x-rays. Her name is Delores Winder. She had severe osteoporosis, with four spinal fusions, nerves cauterized to take away unbearable pain that could not he controlled with any drugs. She was bedridden and facing death within months, when she was miraculously healed. Delores may be retired now. She wrote a book titled Jesus Set Me Free and had an international healing ministry named Fellowship Foundation. She hails from Shreveport, Louisiana, USA Numerous miracles have been reported by Dr Heidi Baker, missionary in Mozambique and by David Hogan, missionary in Mexico. Please check out these ministries and be prepared to be astonished, as the disciples of Jesus Christ often were.

Hi Geoff,
Appreciated your gentle skepticism about the story from South Africa about officer Van De Broek and the "amazing grace" forgiveness by the woman whose husband and son Van De Broek supposedly murdered. Just thought you would want to know that this story was widely popularized by Phillip Yancey in his book "Rumors from Another World" (Zondervan, 2003). Yancey himself reports that he "first heard it from a normally reliable Mennonite publication". Yancey has as of January 2018 stopped using the story as he now believes it is not a reliable story. He reports this on his blog. Thanks for what you reported back in 2011, and for the spirit in which you reported it.

Hi Ockham,

Likewise thanks for the warm spirit of your comment. I'd rather forgotten about the matter and I appreciate your update.

I admire Yancey's decision both to re-evaluate his position and to change it when he found the information on shaker ground than he had initially hoped.

Best wishes,
