God, Logic and Discernment


Consider Crimes Against Logic, by Jamie Whyte.

According to Mr. Whyte, the only method of disproof is systematic and exhaustive elimination.  This seems fair to me.  And, this is what we are taught in philosophy class (at least it was at Radford University from 1980 to 1984).

Those that BELIEVE the Holy Bible is an end all answer, and proof of both God – and, Jesus as a savior, think this is all they need.  Logic is not part of the (their?) equation.  So, The only logical and scientific statement about the origin of our universe, and ourselves, is that “We don’t know.” But, so many of us seem to WANT to know.

I certainly want to know.

In our lives, we may believe one thing or another; most of us modify what we believe at least occasionally.  However, our beliefs are the transient paint coating the architecture that is human knowledge.  But, we keep looking for God. We are always hopeful if not desperate.

So, it’s the search that intrigues me. Christians call this “seeking”.  I believe its our utilization of tools (including discernment) that God has given us to seek him out.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
