Crumb – It’s All About You

Crumb – It’s All About You

It isn’t really, but, in this case, it is. I was listening to something today about developing a morning routine. One that is guaranteed to make you famous and beautiful and smart and probably live forever. Then I thought, screw this crap. The whole idea started to bother me. It’s simply someone else telling me [...]

Psalm 233

In death we find life. It’s there, in that darkness, that we find meaning. Is it so strange that I have found meaning? Is it so strange that long for my child’s smile? Is it so strange that I measure things by my wife’s ruler? I died once, but only for a month. A toy [...]

Evolution Explained, Part 2 – What is a Theory?

Evolution Explained, Part 2 – What is a Theory?

What is a Scientific Theory? If you read evolution, it isn’t long before you’ll run into someone who dismisses the whole shebang as just a theory. What they mean it’s just a guess, a hunch. If they are of certain beliefs, they likely mean that pseudo-scientists made it up only because they hate G. Never [...]

Psalm 232

I understand now why You are immaterial, why You are spirit, Coming and going in hearts and in fire and in spiny desert brush without bounds or logic. Flowing like water. The physical changes. It ages and breaks. It's the nature of the thing. Memories are physical and mark the passing of time like ticks [...]

Evolution Explained, Part 1 – The Philosophical Basis of Science

Evolution Explained, Part 1 – The Philosophical Basis of Science

Philosophical toe-dipping A caveat before I start: this philosophical toe-dipping will be simple-minded to some, and profound to others. Such is the study of evolution. However, to build a step-wise explanation and argument for evolution, one needs to start somewhere. I side with Lewis Carroll, best who liked to start at the beginning. Please understand that [...]

Crumb – Genesis and Real People

Crumb – Genesis and Real People

I think people have the wrong idea about who G works with. At least the Hebrew G. We imagine the people G uses are like our pastor or priest, or maybe like the sweater-wearing goof from The Simpsons. I can't say that G doesn't work with these folks, or that He won't. I not much [...]

Crumb – Classrooms

Crumb – Classrooms

I'm not sure at all what this means. Chime in with your interpretation. My wife works with kids who are learning disabled. For old guys like me, this is the Special Ed class. She was telling me today about a girl who goes to a regular classroom for science. Thinking of the Sharks and the [...]

Diary, January 31, 2020, Free Grace Theology

January 31, 2020 In response to her question of whether or not I ‘believe’ or ‘agree with’ free-grace theology. Where I stand now is here: the OT is the writing of the state religion of Israel. It might be The Word of God and it might not be. Maybe it’s a question of parts. Man [...]

Crumb – It’s a Silly Argument

Crumb – It’s a Silly Argument

I’m in a class now, for work, and it’s supposed to be a basic class. Students are scientists, engineers, and admins and the goal is to make sure we speak the same language. But the instructors - specialists in their areas - are teaching like it’s a graduate course, focusing on minutiae. That’s where the [...]
