In earlier posts I spoke about my beliefs regarding the traditional views of Heaven and Hell. I stated that they were an "injustice" and therefore could not exist. In their place I believe in a cycle of rebirths that is orchestrated after our Earthly deaths in the "heavens" which I described as "... a temporary … Continue reading The Essence Of Our Soul
Two weeks ago Russia, an autocratic country with the world's second strongest military, invaded a democratic country, Ukraine, who presented no threat to any other nation in the region. In so doing a Russian President condemned countless people, including the elderly and children, to their deaths. Rarely in the history of human conflict are we … Continue reading An Evil Set Upon Them
I have intentionally, up to this point, not provided a definition for love. Part of the reason for that omission was that I found it difficult to produce a single, concise definition that was as expansive as my beliefs surrounding love. Beliefs that involve different types of love, and evolutions, depths, breadths, and aberrations. Instead … Continue reading A Definition for Love
Why in modern times have there been no clear and unambiguous signs of The Greatest Love's presence in our Universe? I believe They are capable of delivering such signs. Signs that could be so awe-inspiring that they would cause humanity to coalesce our various sets of beliefs into one. Signs that could convert the masses … Continue reading A Silent God?

It further defines supernatural as "departing from what is usual or normal especially so as to appear to transcend the laws of nature". In this post I will explore miracles as well as the supernatural. Given these definitions I … Continue reading Divine Intervention
There is theology that tries to rationalize how free will can live alongside a Creator's omniscience and omnipotence in the same Universe. It argues that although humanity has free will, that Creator can exist in the future at the same time as They do in the past and present and thus knows the choices we … Continue reading Infinite Love
I have spoken before about why I left the Catholic Church and yet still believe that Jesus Christ was the Messiah. The Son of God. But there is an important caveat and it is the reason I do not consider myself Christian today. For me I cannot believe in a loving god that would break … Continue reading The Divinity of Christ?
Fear is a powerful and primal emotion. In uncertain times a message that triggers our fears then offers protection against them can often win out over a message of love. It is not fair to say that all messages premised on fear are wrong or predatory but rarely is instilling fear ever necessary. And when … Continue reading The War Against Fear
If one were to ask a random bystander "What is love?" it is likely more often than not that the answer would start with "It is a feeling of ...". When we think of love we often first think of the emotion of love. The feeling. But love can also be found in our thoughts … Continue reading The Feeling of Love
