  1. Almost one year later - what's changed?

    by , May 22nd, 2017 at 05:34 PM
    I was curious earlier today and went back to read some of my older blog entries. They were, as I expected them to be, and I enjoyed seeing how I thought about things. Reading through them, I wondered if I thought about things the same way now as I did then.

    In short, yes. As much as I appreciate being able to read here and be provoked to think about things, my thoughts about many of the topics that surface again and again have not changed. Another year of trying to untie my spiritual ...
  2. Statistical Odds and the Gospel

    by , November 18th, 2016 at 02:59 PM
    This could also be titled "How an Aspie learns to accept something as fact that many people take on simple faith". Kind of a wordy title though.

    I love numbers. I love mathematics even though I am not a mathematician. I got through the engineering undergrad math sequence, plus a bit more, and I've taken a few upper level statistics courses. It's all pretty useless to me in my career, but at least I can calculate a tip at a restaurant and can tell when statistics results ...
  3. I need rest

    I need rest. I am taking rest. I will rest.

    Very uneasy this time of year, and I need to do what I feel is right to mitigate it. This means that I cannot be here for the foreseeable future. I know you don't care. I don't care that you don't care.

    This site has some positive qualities to it, and there are some genuinely nice people here. They are overshadowed by the throngs of Christians In Name Only that talk really good lingo and can copypasta Bible verses in their ...
  4. Out of sorts, sort of.

    by , September 11th, 2016 at 05:42 PM
    I've been out of sorts recently. It's a busy time of year, and on top of the stress of trying to keep up with the workload thrust upon me, I also remember that every year about this time, my Father comes down with a bout of pneumonia that comes on rather suddenly. I'm somewhat waiting for the shoe to drop.

    Also, I dislike this time of year as the media goes on a full-front assault trying to get me to care about 9/11...again. The manipulation is truly disgusting, and while I understand ...
  5. Self doubt and questioning

    by , September 5th, 2016 at 10:02 AM
    My Dad is resting comfortably and I have a bit of time to get out something that has been on my mind the past few days.

    My short time back here at CC has been a very educational experience. I think sometimes the best lessons are the ones learned harshly or from a strict teacher. Since I've been back here, I've come to doubt everything I held a tenuous belief in, which lets me know my belief wasn't very strong to begin with. I'm not surprised to be honest, but I find it illuminating ...
