Not Religious but Spiritual

Many claim to not be religious but spiritual, as though this releases them from dogmatic rituals.  They think spiritualism gives them spiritual sophistication and sensibilities while also including inclusive inclinations.  I’ll confess that they do well to conclude that the physical isn’t the conclusion, and that there’s a reality beyond, which transcends the concrete.  However, […]

How Science Works

Science is such a beautiful thing.  It has been the mode of discovering so many deep and mysterious truths about existence.  It has given us so much understanding about how the world works and functions.  It has been used to bring about inventions, medicine, advancements, and just general truths about the physical world.  The success […]

Living it out

Comfortably coming up in the suburbs where a suburban was standard and not superb, my life has been stubborn to suffering.  I shutter and stutter at the noise of any slight nuisance, forgetting there are those alive who still remember the nuance needed to avoid the noose.  I spew this spoilage of love from my […]
