If science struggles to fully explain only 15% of the matter that surrounds us, all of us should maybe humble ourselves and open up to bigger possibilities.

Objective vs. Subjective – Are We Becoming Zombies?

By | October 13th, 2015|Christianity, Spiritual, You|0 Comments

Science and religion have historically had a tension between them. Science's goal is primarily to explain the world objectively (how do things work?), which often is extrapolated using subjective narratives (Lawrence Krauss). Religion's primary goal is to understand the world subjectively (more the "why me" question), which often uses objective language as a basis of [...]

"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." - Mark 10:25 Lots of ways to interpret the above passage in the bible, which is offered as a quote by Jesus. For me, it is simply that an [...]

Because we don't [...]

Purging Clutter

By | September 8th, 2015|Buddhism, Christianity, I, Judaism, Native American, Spiritual|2 Comments

"When you keep thinking about sense objects, attachment comes. Attachment breeds desire, the lust of possession that burns to anger. Anger clouds the judgment; you can no longer learn from past mistakes. Lost is the power to choose between what is wise and what is unwise, and your life is utter waste. But when you [...]

Is the Separation between the Divine and Us a Continuum or Absolute? Or, Something Else?

By | August 12th, 2015|Uncategorized|0 Comments

One of the benefits of spending the summer out on a lake without a television or accessible road is the chance to read and ponder bigger question (One of the "hardships" is limited access to the internet and thus less opportunity to post). Using the time to consume and process, I recently read two books asking bigger questions. The first, a secular historical [...]
