The Day after The End and The Rest of Your Life

The Day after The End and The Rest of Your Life I stayed up way too late into Sunday morning messing around with my blogs, such that I completely forgot about the “Apocalypse” that had been getting so much buzz on the web. Then I noticed that someone on my social network feed had “checked in” on an apocalypse page as “safe” like someone checking … Continue reading The Day after The End and The Rest of Your Life

Meaning v Things

DailyRandomShit for 2016-09-03: Meaning v Things Someone posted a lovely post purporting to have been written by Steve Jobs. Alas, it was not actually written by Steve Jobs per Snopes.com (http://www.snopes.com/steve-jobs-deathbed-speech/). We don’t need the death-bed conversion of a tech icon to understand that things don’t replace meaning. The struggle for all of us is to live and do the things we believe are meaningful … Continue reading Meaning v Things

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. Wow, it’s very refreshing to see Evangelical Christians promoting and agreeing with a Muslim.

JBB’s Final Thoughts 24-Article: What Do People Really Mean When They Say… Jesus: Hope for Humanity

I remember wholeheartedly feeling that way from my teens and into my thirties. It was the mid-70s, Vietnam was winding down, Nixon was ousted in disgrace and the Man from Plains, Georgia was in the White House. As a teen I had no … Continue reading JBB’s Final Thoughts 24-Article: What Do People Really Mean When They Say… Jesus: Hope for Humanity

JBB’s Final Thought 24-Article: What Do People Really Mean When They Say… “Everything Happens for a Reason…”

Everything happens for a reason, I’ve pretty much lived my whole life believing that to be true. Alas, one generally doesn’t think about such things or hear those words except when things have gone horribly wrong and one is trying to figure out where it all went to hell. It’s probably part of my optimistic American upbringing to respond to difficulty, set-backs and failure with … Continue reading JBB’s Final Thought 24-Article: What Do People Really Mean When They Say… “Everything Happens for a Reason…”

When You’re a Stranger in a Strange Land

Daily Random Shit for 2016-02-01: When You’re a Stranger in a Strange Land I have a number of intelligent conservative friends who unapologetically vote Republican. I like that they have the freedom to choose, just like I do. But when I see this level of hate and scapegoating, I have to wonder what these friends, whom I respect, must think. Is this really what is … Continue reading When You’re a Stranger in a Strange Land
