What do you Believe?

What do you believe?  Why do you hold those beliefs?  These are not questions for me but for yourself.  As much as we would like to think we have rational and logical reasons for our worldviews, the truth is many times emotion plays a big role as well.  That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but...

More Emotional than Rational

In our era of skepticism, cold, unadulterated rationality is often valued.  Science has lifted the curtain on certain superstitions and wives’ tales.  Most people in the modern western world strive to be rational, and scientific. We don’t want to be like our ancestors that believed diseases were cause by curses.  Most of the time we... Continue Reading →

That’s Just a Myth!

We are all familiar with myths of old.  There is the rich Greek, Roman, and Norse mythologies that still inspire stories today.  There are lesser-known myths from Babylon, Assyria.  Then there are the tales and legends from Japan which influence video games.  There is folklore of werewolves, vampires, and zombies, monsters that have become especially...

Exploring Truth Again

Truth is tricky.  All people have their own perceptions and are incapable of experiencing someone else’s perspective.  We can empathize, but we cannot move our consciousness to another person and observe his thoughts.  Due to these perceptions, truth becomes muddled through emotion and limited perspectives.  This has led some to come to the conclusion that...

We live... Continue Reading →

My Christian School Experience

Christian schooling has been getting a lot of attention lately, and most of it isn’t good.  Journalists are even asking people on social media to detail their Christian school experiences, and most stories aren’t good either.  I feel sharing a different perspective than the bandwagon “my time at a Christian school sucked” is important. I... Continue Reading →

Innate Empathy?

Something’s been on my mind lately. There are some who claims that something called “innate empathy” exists in everyone.  Some may have it more than others, but proponents of this belief say it exists nonetheless in most if not all people.  However, is that truly the case?  I ask this as an honest question because...

Don’t Just Know What YOU Believe

Knowing what we believe and why is essential.  Our worldviews are the lenses through which we see everything.  Some people don’t even fully understand what they believe, but many more do not understand the root behind other belief systems.  Typically, ignorance is the universal explanation, but that is something that may be true for some...

There is No Proof!

As a fiction writer I’m familiar with legends and myths.  My occupation requires that I spend considerable time in the make-believe.  Fiction is a way to teach and learn truths without beating people over the head with them.  It softens the experience, and in spite of it not being real, it is incredibly relatable.  Sometimes...
