  • The Philosophy of Explanations

    God is the steward of the unexplainable. When man comes across phenomena he can neither understand nor explain, he sometimes attributes them to the will of God. Often, man uses his reasoning to discover the explanation of a particular phenomenon.  Once men can explain it, God is no longer believed to be the architect of THAT… Continue reading

  • Ideology, Philosophy, and Religion

    What is the difference between an ideology, a philosophy and a religion? What is the criterion that makes the distinction? Where is the line drawn? An idealist will think that the ideal in itself is a reason to believe. In his mind the ideal will bring about the governmental and cultural changes that will be… Continue reading

At the tournament, I watched while children as young as six competed for glory. They hoped to win one of the little medals the… Continue reading

  • He is Everything. Everything is He

Have you ever heard the story about the guy walking through the desert and looks back at his footprints? Of course you have, everyone has. So this fella looks back and sees that every time there was a… Continue reading

  • Plan B’s

    It’s in our nature to be innovative and to create new ideas from the lessons that came before us. We always learn … throughout our lives and throughout the history of man. The more that I learn, the more that I cannot afford to be blind to any possible “Plan B’s” that may make things… Continue reading
