RIP George Smith

Not 100%, but just about.

I got this off of a Facebook post by David Friedman here. David wrote:

If this is him (and knowing about his stroke, it sounds like it), George passed away early last month and nobody knew.

I'm going to miss him. I know a lot of people are.

I saw those from D Friedman too. I hope it's not GHS, but fear it is. I've not been able to find any other confirming or refuting evidence online.

I am sorry to hear this. George's  book Atheism: The Case Against God is one of the best arguments for atheism out there. He also wrote some  good articles about what was right and wrong with Objectivism.

At the same time, I will never understand why he maintained a feud with Wendy McElroy. Wendy has long been a friend, so I do want to take her side.

George also made some very arguments and posts on this board. He was a good contributor to this board.

Does anyone know what George thought about the last two years? I can't find any writings from him on the situation.
