Mostly, we owe everything to our Creator, but there seems to be a general human desire to elaborate on even the most obvious truths. Consequently, I am providing a pdf file justice.pdf for the amusement of anyone who might care. The file can be downloaded or read in place using something like Adobe Reader.
God is transcendent and immanent. That is, He lives as a necessary being, Father and Son and Holy Spirit, His own Act-of-being, but He also exists in each and every thing, each and every second of time, each and every volume of space. Not even the emptiest space of our universe could not continue to … [Read more…]
On the whole, it has been a smooth road to setting up a website, partly because I chose to use WordPress as a simple content management system as well as blogger software. The remaining problems to finalizing a simple website are not too bad. When I copy up some text from my local emacs to … [Read more…]
No, I didn’t claim Darwinism is sexy, only that Darwinism is sexual. And it’s more accurate to say evolutionary theory is more sexual than natural, since Darwinism is at least arguably an ideology only accidentally connected to a valid field of study.

I decided to go through with it. I’m not going to spend a lot of time right now re-learning html and perl, let alone learning python, ruby, or php. My website will basically be a text-oriented set of writings, including some pages which will display samples of my unpublished books. So now I just want … [Read more…]
I kept at it and eventually found Jeffery Friedl’s plugin for WordPress that allows text to be inserted directed from a file — which can be edited by emacs, of course. Need a local directory for holding those files but it would be even better to have a local emacs. And Bluehost has a full … [Read more…]
About 8 years ago, I wrote an article titled “Is Self-interest Sufficient to Organize a Free Economy?” and posted it on the Free Software Foundation website. In it, I argued that Adam Smith was not an individualist while I seem to have made Adam Smith the poster boy for the evil of modern liberalism (individualism) … [Read more…]
Years ago, I read about this famous debate in which Bohr spoke of objects coming into existence as quantum waves ‘collapsed’ because of an observation. Einstein refused to believe this could be and spoke as if he were defending common sense. Years ago, I also read “Critique of Scientific Reason” by the philosopher Kurt Hubner. … [Read more…]
