I finished the course Evidence & Logic from the Koinonia Institute not long ago, and thought a review was in order.

The study materials used were the video briefing pack from Chuck Missler called Critical Thinking.

I finished the course Hermeneutics & Bibliology from the Theology Program at Credo House, fulfilling part of my Hermeneutics Mega Course series and figured it was time for a review.

Well, I guess we should get started….

It’s been nearly a year since I was rushed into my local Emergency Room while having a heart attack. Quite a lot has happened over the last twelve months and I figured I would take a moment this afternoon and let you know what’s come of it all.

This is part of my Medical Crisis series.

On with the Update….

I just finished the Metaphysics & Mystery course I started several weeks ago. I had first intended to participate with the actual class (apparently 2000 participants), but I really do not fair well with schedules, due dates, or specific meeting times.

Sorry. I guess you’ll have to sue me.

But, I did go ahead and finish the course asynchronously (where I shine). It was an interesting course, and, although the instructor and organizers were less than inspiring (more on that later), I did come away with a quite tantalizing and thought provoking list of questions.

The questions and my answers I’ve included in this post. If you wish to comment about my answers, about the questions, the topics – well, just about anything – please do so in the comments section below. Do keep in mind, though, these answers (and their questions) are a work in progress. They are a reflection of how I might feel about a topic at this particular time, influenced by a myriad of factors.

I spotted this article on my Pocket feed this morning after I got back from a nice 3 hour ride to the beach. I laughed out loud when I saw the title, Faking it: Could I go From being an Introvert to an Extrovert in One Week?”

Being an introvert myself, and someone who has dealt with this topic all my life, I couldn’t help but respond.

But, first, check out all my articles and posts at my website blog feed here.

I managed to catch the latest installment of the Terminator franchise tonight. I have to say, I think it lives up to the hype.

That’s not to say there aren’t some things I think they should have avoided, a few things with which they could have done better. But, all in all, it’s a great addition to the overall universe of AI infused machines hell bent on destroying humanity. Be forewarned. This review will have a lot of spoilers.

Robert Lanza is the author of the book on consciousness and science, Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe, released in 2010. It is now the first book in series with the follow-up Beyond Biocentrism and further talks with his publisher for a third.

The gist of Lanza’s argument is a Theory of Everything, that would incorporate all the known laws of classical and quantum physics into a conducive whole, cannot be achieved through physics alone, but must take into account the biological origin of the external world itself.

Let’s see, shall we?

I’ve recently started creating small playlists on Youtube with a variety of music I happen to enjoy – especially when I’m writing. I’ve even started using them on my TV to free up resources on my computer – plus, the speakers are much louder.

I like to turn it up and rock out while the words hit the page. Check out the songs I LOVE to listen to while I’m writing.

This is part of my Music Review Series.

I have to admit, I’m new to Nora Roberts. I’ve never been exposed to her novels before, never really knew anything about her.

But, with a lot of down time on my hands lately, I stumbled onto this book and decided to give it a try.

What a good choice.

I’m not a rabid sci-fi fan, nor did I watch the original version of the Lost in Space show before. In fact, I had no idea Netflix had even put out a remake of this once popular story.

Even more surprising, I discovered the tv show is based on a reboot of the book Swiss Family Robinson – a movie I became captivated with as a youth.

Needless to say, when I found myself laid up at home, I knew exactly what show I wanted to binge watch first.
