Au Revoir, Francois!
Francois Tremblay has retired from regular posting at Goosing the Antithesis. It is the sad end of what has truly been a Magical Mystery Tour.
Franc has some of the most insightful writing I've ever read, amateur or professional. Although I would rather he continue bringing us his thought-provoking, gut-busting, and God-bashing essays for decades to come, I do understand what Franc means when he says he's sick of it and that arguing against God has become silly to him.
Fortunately, arguing against God hasn't become silly or boring to me just yet, and the slack will be picked up by Zach, myself, and all the other writers at this blog.
As mentioned in his good-bye post, Franc wants to take his writing and thought to the next level. As I understand it, he wants to examine the foundations of belief, especially collectivist (religious, political, and other) concepts and memes. He also says that he wants to understand "what it all means." Quite a rabbit hole to go down, and I'm certainly looking forward to him sharing his journey through the looking glass.
So, while he may not be hanging around this blog much anymore, Franc will still have quite a presence in our little Internet thinker's clique. He will surely create a tome of information in no time at Check Your Premises (he's probably already got 200 drafts waiting to be posted there), and he will still be posting regularly at our political team blog, The Radical Libertarian. And, of course, he can still be heard at the world-famous and critically-acclaimed(!) Hellbound Alleee show.
From all of us at Goosing the Antithesis: Au revoir and bon voyage, Francois!
