Why I may one day encourage my father to keep believeing.

It's a strange crossroads that I've found myself. It all started last week when I received a text message seemingly out of the blue from my stepmother. She had been looking at something online and I guess decided that she should suggest I check out William Lane Craig's Reasonable Faith. I told her that I was well aware of the man and his arguments and I received in reply the "I'm worried about your eternal soul" conversation only that she used the word "future" instead of "eternal soul", but…

Shocked - A Poem

I wrote this for an English assignment just recently about the death of my sister and how it's affected me.  I wanted to share it with all of you, because I may not be the only one who feels this way about a loved one's death. It's strange, the grieving process. Some days I'm ok. Some days I'm not.



Here it is:



It was a warm Sunday,

a quiet weekend,

a day like any other.

 

Lightning strikes.

 

The phone rings.

Celsus's "On the True Doctrine"

So I stumbled across a Platonic writer by the name of Celsus from the 2nd century who wrote a damning critique of Christianity back in his day.

My Father and his Faith

I've been thinking lately about moving back home. I will be there soon after eight years and thousands of miles of being away. My father the other day on the phone said that we needed to have a “long talk” when I get back. He never referred to what it was that he needed to talk about, but it's got me thinking about what it could be. At this point, it could be a lot of things, so I've tried to keep myself from speculating. My father, for those of you who don't…

My Dad Lives in a Bubble and it Pisses Me off.

I'm venting. Straight up. But I need somewhere to share my anger and ... disappointment. You see, my dad is a pretty smart guy. He's an electrical engineer. He likes to think things through and is fairly methodical, except when it comes to bullshit like religion, or the climate "debate" or his ultra-conservative political leanings, or thinking that some crazy conspiracy theories are actually true (The President is a MUSLIM COMMUNIST BORN IN KENYA AND COME TO DESTROY…
