Gregarious Troglodyte

Gregarious Troglodyte prison picture black and white with guards and warden

Gregarious Troglodyte (Written in Prison) In a place where the sun hardly shines. Where many laugh when the pain is hard to hide. Reality seems paused, standing still, until you realize things keep going without you. Your mind wanders plus distorts memories. You start wondering how different life could have been, if only you knew then what you know now. You don’t like meeting new people, or at least sometimes you feel like you don’t. You tell yourself you need…

How Do We Know God Exists?

a picture of the sun shinning through clouds make one ask how we know god exists

How Do We Know God Exist? Everything With A Beginning Requires A Cause The world around us is a part of a series of effects.  Everything is happening in a sequence.  These effects all have causes that go back to a first cause. How do we know that God exists??? According to the big bang theory, there was a beginning to the universe.  This is evident from the expansion that is seen in the stars.  The universe is this very moment expanding outwards.…

What is Outside the Universe?

What Is Out There? A fascinating question to ask any person concerns what lies outside the observable universe.  Since space itself began after the big bang along with time and matter, a startling question arises.  What is the known universe expanding into? From a believer or non-believer’s perspective, any answers would be pure speculation.  As a believer, a Supreme Mind is necessary and obvious in the complexity of everything observable.  When the notion of an ‘outside of space’ is introduced,…

What Can One Do To Change

What Can You Do To Change? What can one do to change when what one does is all he’s ever done? And if all he ever did is all he ever does, will it be all he’ll ever do? The logic doesn’t follow. If we continually do something, what can one do to change it? Though we have certain habits, these things have not always been a part of one’s life. At a point in life,  one introduces regular customs into…

Convincing Ourselves

Humanities Struggle We strive to do what seems right unto our own eyes, convincing ourselves all the days of our life. We persuade ourselves others are wronging us and find reasons to shift our guilt or blame others. Sometimes we even believe our own lies to free ourselves from our conscience. Humans do this throughout their lives while finding comfort in their justifications. Some find no rest later on when they begin to question their previous justifications. This results in…

What Are We Without Direction?

Man With many arrows pointing in many directions

A Man Once Asked… “What are we without direction?” If we only move toward the pattern we are used to and only strive along its path because of our familiarity with it, will it not bring us into a circle from which there is no escape? For is it not when one easily embraces new paradigms and ably decides to willingly follow the Truth, no matter where it leads, that one is able to truly have direction? But preconceptions have directed your…

Human Observation

What Is Observed One experiences human observation individually. One observes constantly through the available senses and decides what makes sense to them. Along the path of the journey, one begins to realize what they believe their purpose is. Even those who believe there is no purpose, have made it their purpose to believe such things. There are those things which make more sense than others. There is a way of looking at reality that is cohesive when looked at rationally…

Explaining Everything

However does one begin to explain it all? Or could all ever be explored if one will not ever have enough time to explore the vastness that exists? For what is human but what one is for the short duration they are here?   Since we simply are the sum of our experiences… And since all have experienced different instances we can never see perfectly eye to eye exactly on all things that have had existence throughout time. Though time…

My Thoughts On A Creator

god like scenery, clouds covering the sun and a big lake

Regarding A Creator Some of the biggest questions we have and ponder about in this short and elusive life are those with regards to a creator.  Does one exist?  Is it personal or impersonal? All-powerful?  What kind of creator is it? My early years in life had me always questioning beliefs regarding religion.  I am the type to investigate truth claims obsessively.  I was not always this way.  When I was a sophomore in high school I was swayed into the…

 Can Anyone Know ‘What Is Purpose’ In 2018

picture of a galaxy that looks like an eye and makes you ponder your existence

 Can Anyone Know ‘What Is Purpose’ In 2018? Purpose and meaning are things that have become more of an individual decision in our postmodern world.  Does this mean each individual is equally correct?   Seems like it when you ask the majority of people.  A common phrase spoken is “do what makes you happy”, or “follow your heart” and other such feel-good phrases.   How can one believe everyone should follow their heart when there are individuals who in so doing would destroy…
