What if God was (not) one of us?

January 23rd, 2022 I wrote a little last week about this book, “God Is Not One,” by Stephen Prothero, and now that I’m finished I could not recommend it more. Learning about all the things the world believes in makes you believe in the world more. The book is both expansive and intimate, covering theContinue reading “What if God was (not) one of us?”

The Fastest-Growing Religion

January 18th, 2022 God Is Not One has been one of the most enlightening and empowering books I have read. Religion isn’t going away. I’m not a religious person, but I take it as a personal responsibility to learn about the people I live with on this planet. Like most people, I always felt religionContinue reading “The Fastest-Growing Religion”

Nothing Around Us Changes

January 12th, 2022 Weirdly enough, I finally got covid, but that’s not what’s inspiring me to write tonight. (Presuming nothing terrible happens to me over the next few days, I’ll probably write about that later.) No, I’ve been quarantined all alone in the bedroom (with occasional visits from my doctor, who is actually my dog),Continue reading “Nothing Around Us Changes”

Not a Trace Of Doubt In My Mind

December 22nd, 2021 I can’t stop thinking about one relevant difference between faith and science. I try to be as respectful as possible to those who are religious, because I hope for that same respect in return, and I have seen the good that believing in someone or something can create. That being said, thereContinue reading “Not a Trace Of Doubt In My Mind”

Let’s Stay Together

December 4th, 2021 I haven’t been spicy in a while, and I don’t mean to be today. But I want to explore one of those phrases that seems harmless on its surface but is loaded with a level of ignorance and selfishness that I’m not sure its users intend. When it comes to death andContinue reading “Let’s Stay Together”

Particles R Rad

December 2nd, 2021 Particles are amazing. The particles that make up you are the same particles that make up dogs and forks and books and cars and trees. I think humans prefer labeled boxes (which are also made up of the same particles) so we don’t think about that much. If you want, you canContinue reading “Particles R Rad”

I’m Hungry But I’m Not Hungry

November 5th, 2021 An exploration of addiction through my personal experience, evolutionary theories, and Galactus & the Silver Surfer.   “I’m hungry but I’m not hungry.” Before everything, it was a feeling. By now, I’ve heard countless people say this phrase or a variation of it. Before that, I used to think it repeatedly, sayContinue reading “I’m Hungry But I’m Not Hungry”

The Loop

November 3rd, 2021 Do you ever feel like you’re in a loop? ?pool a ni er’uoy ekil leef reve uoy oD I hear it a lot. “Every day feels the same.” When a TV show lasts a long time, it tends to turn off viewers for a variety of reasons. Yet, somehow, people are usuallyContinue reading “The Loop”

The Temporal Buffet

November 1st, 2021 When you’re paying attention, even the most mundane details can illuminate personal progress. Last weekend, after a day spent doing that business-art thing, some of us went out to a Mongolian grill. I hadn’t been to one in a while, but the premise is simple: fill up a bowl of fresh andContinue reading “The Temporal Buffet”

So What

October 20th, 2021 Almost four years ago, when I started writing about things that people generally don’t talk about on the internet, it was scary. I remember laying in a hospital bed and weighing the pros and cons of sharing these pieces of myself. There was a large part of me that felt like IContinue reading “So What”
