Post: The First

    I live in Indiana, and have all my life, in a town no bigger than a postage stamp, but somehow has four churches. I have never attended church, and I have not read the Bible as a whole, despite efforts over the years. I was raised by a pair of people that didn't fit in with other people in the community, let alone belong together.

     My mother is a self-proclaimed…

Nihilism: A Rebel Only in My Mind.

...I think I was born a nihilist. Of course, the public image of a nihilist is a ridiculous stereotype: rebel without a cause, mad bomber, etc. I am a rebel only in my mind, and I have never purposely injured anyone. In my daily life I lead a quiet existence and conform to most of the idiotic expectations of my fellow man. As one sociologist observed, mores develop a life of their own. Few people actually agree with them, but each person thinks that everyone else does.…

A Question About Lying

The question is frequently posed to me, and though I am often vague with my answers, I usually air on the side of cautious honesty.  Is it ever ok to lie?

In this society, or rather our social construct, where almost all is left up to the individual’s interpretation, the line between virtue and vice seems less perceptible than ever before. At least in my experience, of something I have noted repeatedly and in my observation of people’s communication regarding the issue, I have come to…

Imagination and Intellectual Honesty



The new trend amongst proponents of new age thinking, and believers of everything that is illogical is to hold imagination as “better” or more important than knowledge.  This seems to be the result of the human ability to consciously and unconsciously misinterpret facts and knowledge. It appears that some of us will engage in fallacious logic in order to rationalize our emotional tendencies, and in the worst of cases, to justify our own agenda.  This new “philosophy” (and I use that…

About Truth

From the heights of my tower of industry that proudly faces the city and its unmindful residents, a question powerfully takes control of my mind. Perhaps, a doubt brought about by the unnatural stupor resulting from the constant observation of the logic of our business machines, or my incessant craving to interact with something other than an amalgamation of transistors and wires, I grant it time and effort.

What is it, and where does it go? Is it a feeble, meager tracing on the…

Zeitgeist: The Movie - Fact or Fiction. You decide.

For those who have not yet had a chance to view this film. I recommend it. It is truly life changing. I'd also recommend keeping a tablet and pencil handy to take notes if you have questions or doubts so that you can do some googlefu afterwards if you wish. The contents are very controversial and will challenge the majority of things you hold to be true.

Irrational Faith In Govenment Is Just as Disturbing as Irrational Faith in Religion

So I sit here reflecting back upon the events of the last few days. OSAMA is DEAD! Hundreds if not thousands of Americans take to the streets in joy and celebration at the death of the monster that "murdered" their family members, friends, and fellow Americans...

 

After 10 years of…
