Welcome to Across the Atlantic! This isn't your normal, everyday blog. In fact, this is probably the only blog of its kind. You don't generally find where two people with such different beliefs write side-by-side. Antonio Piñero is a skeptic and an agnostic. Thomas W. Hudgins is an evangelical Christian. Antonio lives in Spain, Thomas in the United States. Antonio thinks it was a coincidence that he and Thomas met; Thomas considers it part of God's plan. Yes, their worlds are very different. But they also have plenty of things in common, one of which is their hope that you will find this blog interesting and insightful. Mostly they will look at the origins of Christianity. That means that they will have to touch on some of the most important questions about Jesus, the New Testament, the early church, etc.

Antonio has written a large amount of information on his personal blog (El blog de Antonio Piñero), amassing more than 5,000 posts since its inception in 2007. In order to not reinvent the wheel, he and Thomas are going to utilize the information found on that blog, only here the discussion will be in English and will feature Thomas' insights and perspective. Beyond that, they hope to include some original content as time permits. In order to navigate the page and to distinguish between who is saying what, the following is important to note. Antonio's words are marked by an AP before the beginning of his thoughts. Thomas' are marked by a TWH. This way it should't be too difficult to distinguish between the two voices on the blog. Again, welcome to Across the Atlantic. Thanks for stopping by, and come back often.
