Of Miles and Time

A few days ago, I passed a roadside monument that caught my attention. It was a once-white cross, now moss-covered and dangling at a treacherous angle. A bouquet of brown flowers had somehow clung tight to it through winter and now hung, withered and weightless, towards the earth. Unlike many roadside monuments, this one made me […]

Hexalemma

Last week I poked some holes in Duncan’s trilemma, the argument that Jesus was either god, a liar, or a madman. This week I’d like to explore further. Is it possible that Jesus’ supposed claim of divinity can be whittled down to only three possible motivators? I doubt it. I will be sharing an additional […]

Gratitude

Several weeks ago, I found myself in the frontlines of a semantics war with a Christian blogger. What I will euphemistically call “the discussion” centered around my use of the word thankfully.
