Which Road Are You On? You Should Spend Some Time On “The Road to Edmond”

The Road to Edmond

Which Road Are You On? You Should Spend Some Time On “The Road to Edmond” Just finished watching “The Road to Edmond.” It’s been over a decade since I’ve watched something that centers on telling a “Christian” story. I just don’t have time for stories with two-dimensional characters where the only “honest” people are the brave Christians who, in the

Believing in Evolution – Unexpected Bedfellows

DailyRandomShit for 2016-05-06 When this video came across my social feed I was pretty amazed. It was posted by a number of Christians as a proof against Evolution.

The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer & The Community of Friends

The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer Turns out that famous recording artists are people with all the flaws, failings and feelings of everyone else you’ve ever known.

In Bad Faith 14: 40-Years Too Soon

I just figured it out. No offense to my friends-of-faith, but I’m amazed at all of my high-school classmates whom I’ve become reacquainted with via FaceBook who post declarations of strong faith on their FaceBook feed. My first reaction was, really, this person? It’s not that I have any doubts that what they’re expressing isn’t their genuine convictions. It’s just

The Balcony is Closed: RIP Roger Ebert

Of late when a celebrity passes away I’ve found myself quietly counting my fingers and toes and wondering when my turn might come. Having reached an age where more than a few friends and family have shaken off their mortal coils, it’s not an altogether unreasonable question. And while my illness this past year thankfully never got to the stage
