I Wonder [A Hughman #1]

New blog I recently found, OftenBetterThanFine, started by a friend on the far side of the world. Smart chap, I’m here to tell you. He has located an interesting/engaging set of YouTube lectures that I’m just starting into. I enjoy mind expanding discussions like this one; they make a good inoculation against the dwarfish, provincial worldview celebrated on days like Easter. Though I will add that I have no idea where this is headed. 🙂


I’ve just listened to the first YouTube video from A Hughman, and it was a refreshing and enjoyable way to spend some time on my lunch-break (even if I couldn’t really see the screen properly in the sun).

I’m looking forward to his other episodes.

I was already beginning to think that ‘wonder’ is one of the most powerful things you can experience, and a noble end in itself, but this video meditates on the issues beautifully.

  1. The video was superb. Your post is timely, as I just discovered and subbed to Hugeman’s YT channel yesterday after reading this most excellent post by a guest writer on Godless in Dixie.

    The post is about the generally long grieving process once devout Christians go through during and after deconversion. Anyway, here is what she said about Hugeman:

    I know of a very intelligent and witty young man who hosts a channel on YouTube. When he was going through his grieving process his videos were cheeky and rather juvenile, addressing religious belief by using metaphors which were (albeit clever) rather mocking and blunt.

    Then he stopped posting videos for several years.

    When he came back he suddenly began posting the most beautiful, profound, philosophically deep lectures on the meaning of life as a non-believer complete with self-composed instrumental background music. He made quite a transformation.

    Now following his blog. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
