Do we all have a soul?

In my writing course we were instructed to write about the 'soul'. Except for using proper everything, our only perimieters were to define it first. Having had many philosophical courses already, as well as some science and physics courses as well,...

   definite sign of changing times: the Western Washington Chapter of Girl Scouts was offered an anonymous donation of $100,000 .. but with the condition it not be used for LGBT scouts. they turned it down and instead started a campaign on social...

Good Morning All

I will probably not be around as much for a few days. My youngest son is going into surgery for the removal of cancer in the nodes in his neck.  He had previous surgery a few years ago.  His thyroid was removed and they found cancer in all the...

I can feel it...

  I can feel it. I can feel myself sliding down that slope that depression brings. It’s an alarm of sorts, brought on by life and its challenges. Sometimes they get to be too much. Recently, I have been financially fine, but it’s what is going on...

This is why we can't have nice things.

  This is how I picture people who disagree with gay marriage, or indeed universal human rights, which gay marriage is a part of.  Bringing up stupid ‘evidence’ like this, obvious fairy tales like “Sodom and Gomorra”,  as evidence of your...

let's look at it and not just quote it Part 2

    to continue: the Hebrews have gradually roamed down through Caanan and are on its southern edge.. near the bottom of the dead sea. we recognize some of the terrain from the story.. obviously there were salt deposits then as there are now. but...

I had an encounter last night with a man in the check out line at Walmart. I had two orders of groceries, and had them separated. The conveyer belt was full, and I was concentrating on my task. He asked "Fourth of July shopping already?" I said "No,...

Saving Lives

Do you think its possible to save someone else?     Do you think its possible for one person to make another person a better person? Is there a type of person that is able to do that for people?     Or can these things only be...

Porn Kills Love!

First off I want to say that I have struggled with this in the past and I’m trying to help some people to break these chains. Pornography is destroying the men in our country these days. Over 50% of men ages 18 to 29 admit to an ongoing struggle with...

Update

My son is doing great.   The doctors got the teeny cancer out of the node in his neck  and took a little of the surrounding area to be on the safe side.  They tweaked his shoulder muscle and tongue muscle to make sure there were no problems.  Surgery...
