Life can be quite confusing at times, don’t you think? It’s no accident that we humans often seek meaning in our complicated lives. We try to make sense of the complexities and contradictions in our personal lives, as well as in the chaotic world we inhabit. I write these posts to explore various issues on my mind, while hopefully contributing somewhat to yours. But writing also helps me on my own life journey and in my own "Search for Meaning” (Viktor Frankl’s remarkable book by that name, written after his imprisonment in a Nazi concentration camp). In searching for explanations for our quandaries and relief from existential anxieties, we often find solace in beliefs in God(s), other spiritual pursuits, or in secular principles and beliefs. “Believing” is one of “The Four B’s” that we use to assess the meaningfulness and worthiness of our lives (others are being, belonging, and benevolence). Our search for meaning is a major part of the human condition, that “diagnosis” … [Read more...] about The Arc of Humanity Bends to Benevolence, or Belligerence?
I n person, Tim Burton looks a bit like a sketch out of a Tim Burton movie. His hair is frizzled, his clothes are dark; he speaks in quiet but rushed tones, with a slightly manic gleam in his eyes. This description has undoubtedly been made before, but it’s worth repeating here, particularly since Burton’s new film, Big Eyes , looks so very un-Tim Burton-like. Gone are the macabre backdrops and characters, instead replaced with the bright, picturesque landscape of 1950s San Francisco. But underneath those pastels and shots of the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll find the same things that made Burton’s earlier worlds so memorable: isolation, sadness, and that fish-out-of-water, outside-looking-in mentality.

Conservative pastor Rick Wiles took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci in a recent episode of his TruNews program, saying that the prominent public health official should be tortured. Wiles, the pastor of the Flowing Streams Church in Vero Beach, Florida, regularly makes controversial and inflammatory statements. In March 2020, he made highly anti-Semitic remarks, claiming that God was "spreading" COVID-19 in synagogues as punishment for Jews opposing "his son, the Lord Jesus Christ." During a program on TruNews last week, Wiles claimed that Fauci, President Joe Biden 's chief medical adviser and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, had worked directly with China to create the coronavirus pandemic. "You're a liar!" Wiles said, directing his remarks at Fauci in the episode last Thursday. "You know what you did, Fauci. You worked with the Chinese Communist Party for years. And you used our own taxpayer money to work on a coronavirus with bats. And you … [Read more...] about Pastor Says Fauci Should Be Waterboarded Until He Admits to Working With China to Create COVID
