It takes a lot of faith to believe in Evolution… (“Young Earth” post 2 of 2)

Each day, as we enter a New Year, let’s take a look at facts which confirm the creation of the world. There’s not much “scientific” … Continue reading It takes a lot of faith to believe in Evolution… (“Young Earth” post 2 of 2)

Pornography and the Staggering Rise of Sexual Assaults in America

Pornography and the Staggering Rise of Sexual Assaults in America

Standing against Racism and for the Flag

Standing against Racism and for the Flag

I stand against racism AND I stand for our flag. My point = you can choose both. Don’t believe the talking heads who tell you otherwise. I stand for our flag. 5,000 miles from home, in intense heat, hungry, tired, and under enemy fire from Al Qaeda…I looked up and saw that star-spangled banner. My … Continue reading Standing against Racism and for the Flag

Hope Is An “Anchor For The Soul”

Hope Is An “Anchor For The Soul”

Love is the “means” and the “end”

“It is easier to love humanity as a whole than to love one’s neighbor.” ~Eric Hoffer. We so frequently speak of love – Love is love…Love drives out hate…Love your neighbor. Believing our own intentions are rooted in love, why do we so frequently act outside of love? There are scores of daily examples in … Continue reading Love is the “means” and the “end”

Human Nature vs Human Culture

Human Nature vs Human Culture

The progressiveness and uniqueness of cultures over human history – no matter how extreme, how far to the left or right – have not manufactured new and distinct human behaviors. A man behaves in much the same way as man always has. Therefore, while one’s culture may certainly drive his or her behaviors, it does … Continue reading Human Nature vs Human Culture
