Don’t Change Too Much

If there were two little words that I’ve probably used more than any other two words, it would be these: “I’m sorry” You might already know where I’m going with this, especially because of the title, but I want speak on this topic anyway. And I’m not going to say anything mind-blowingly new here. Several…

Everyone Is Alone

I’ve just finished up the book, Island, by Aldous Huxley, and I’ve gotta say, it’s been one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read in a long time, possibly since the last Huxley book I read, A Brave New World, which I wrote a post about that here: A Brave New World. Anyway, there’s this scene towards the end…

Was the Rational Mind Inevitable?

There are quite a few number of atheists, specifically, new-atheists, who have this notion of religion in that they believe that it was an unnecessary by-product by way of what is called a “Genetic Fallacy”. Basically, it’s the idea that just because a certain trait or characteristic, even way of acting in the world, doesn’t…

Message In Your Misfortunes

I’m reading a book called The Coddling of the American Mind by Jonathan Haidt, and although I’m not too far into it, I came across a part that really struck a chord with me. It was a speech by the Chief Justice, John Roberts. You can find it here: Chief Justice, John Roberts But I’ll go ahead…

Is Pain Real?

I haven’t written in quite a while. I think it might be two weeks since, and I apologize, if anyone is actually paying attention to me. I’ll tell you that there’s been a lot going on in my life, much more than I’m comfortable or willing to share, other than simply that there really has…

What is Good and Evil?

The title of this post, as you can tell, poses a question: What is good and what is evil? Seems pretty straightforward, right? We all have our own preconceived notion of good, as well as our own conception of evil. But who is that wrote these moral codes within us? Certainly, if you’re of the…

Written in Blood

Have you ever asked yourself: What makes writing good? Deep? Able to find and touch the lowest parts of the soul? The parts we keep dormant? Nietzche certainly had a criticism of most writers in that most of their writing, it does nothing more for the reader but idle them. But what does he mean? He means…

Was God Naive?

I have this problem, one in which I’m trying very hard to overcome, but it almost seems impossible. What is my problem you ask? I can’t stop myself from continuing to start new avenues of creativity, you could call it, without finishing my current one. What I mean by that is, although I haven’t finished…

Moral Perspectives

The more and more I dive into, what some would call, the world of mysticism, spirituality, or transcendence, I find that there’s less and less I know about the nature of reality itself. Many people I run into and happen to have a conversation with, even among many of my friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, it…
