Transgenders have the right to serve! Or die!

Transgender’s have the right to serve in the military!

Oh, wait. No they don’t. It’s been taken away from them. So what sense does it make to say that they do?

Here’s my issue with statements like this one;  “Transgender’s have the right to serve in the military!” People were saying this IN RESPONSE to Transgenders LOSING the right to serve in the military. So it kind of sounds sarcastic.  Continue reading

Trolls are Honest Creatures

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

Oscar Wilde

If you are like a lot of people, you may complain about the anonymity of the Internet. Some people are suggesting it should be impossible to have something like a Twitter account without connecting that account to your personal phone number.  The reason, of course, is that there is a species which lives on line that hides in the shadows and cannot exist in the light. I am talking of course, about TROLLS.

Genes, Eye Color, and Gender

When I met my wife, her hair was red. But it was red because she had dyed it. She is actually blonde. She was born blonde, and remains blonde. When she dyed her hair, she was a blonde who had dyed her hair red.Image result for red head

Your DNA determines your hair color. That is determined before you were born, and before you even have hair. You can’t change it, you can only cover it up. Continue reading

Children and Pizza

The Bible says children are a blessing from the Lord.

Psalm 127 says:

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
    the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
    are the children of one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
    who fills his quiver with them!

And it’s true, children are a blessing.

But there is such thing as too much of a good thing.

Pizza is a good thing.

Blessed is the man whose plate is piled high with three cheese and pepperoni!

But as someone who has eaten himself sick more than once, I can tell you that, even when something is a wonderful blessing, there is still an argument for knowing when enough is enough. And frankly, I’ve yet to hear the persuasive argument for “too much is never enough” especially when “too much” includes diapers and sleep deprivation. 

I have one child, and even as the husband/father who arguably has the easiest part of the birthday and everything after, it nearly killed me. Maybe I’m soft. Maybe my child is a little more BATMAN than other kids. I don’t know. All I know is, I have a friend with 7 kids.


So I figure, between the two of us, we have EIGHT kids.

That’s four a piece. My quiver is, statistically speaking, full enough.

But that’s just my opinion.

The Bible is like the Dictionary

Have you ever written a word by hand, like on a piece of paper, and then stared at it too long? You know the feeling, like, YOU just wrote that word, but now you’re looking at it wondering if you have ever seen that combination of letters in that order in your life, and no matter how much you reassure yourself that you spelled it right, you can’t shake the feeling that it HAS TO BE wrong. 

This is called semantic satiation or sometimes Wordnesia. Continue reading

Actually, Atheists, you DO have the Burden of Proof

Atheists all of the time be telling me that THEY don’t have to think, reason, or answer questions. They insist that THEY do not have the burden of proof.

However, my atheist friends, You DO have the burden of proof.

You are the one making the ridiculous claims. Continue reading
