Deception

Lately I have been debating a doctrinal issue with a so-called Christian who challenged me to support my position with human approval, such as the word of Bible scholars or Bible commentaries. After telling him I don’t rely on human interpretation for doctrine, he accused me of having a “fear” of biblical scholarship. I want…

Standing Up For What’s Right

In my last two posts, Prison-Cop Perverts and Fighting Injustice, I heavily criticized what women are allowed to get away with in men’s prisons. Someone told me my view is biased on two counts. One is that the female psyche is different than that of males, so it’s appropriate for them to see men nude,…

Fighting Injustice

You may have thought my post called Prison-Cop Perverts went too far, but I doubt you’d feel that way if what I wrote about happened to you or someone you love. I don’t know about you, but I take victimization very seriously and it sickens me that anyone could be upset that I reported it.…

Prison-Cop Perverts

While I can’t speak for other countries, most American prisons today don’t have cells with bars. They’re concrete rooms with a toilet in front of a metal door, and no one outside the cell can see the toilet without looking into the door’s window. Like almost all men in prison, I faced the door when…

No Need For Alcohol

I’m still elated to be free again after 13 years of incarceration, though I left prison without the complete experience. I was never hit with pepper spray or a taser, nor did I go to the hole. Perhaps I’ll one day regret not taking advantage of the opportunities I had. Seriously though, I’ve considered volunteering…

Creation vs. Evolution

Piltdown Man, a so-called link between apes and humans, was “discovered” in 1912 and then revealed as a hoax in 1953. The cranium was human, and the jaw and teeth came from an orangutan, with the teeth being filed down to look human. That it took four full decades for this fraud to be exposed…

The Road Ahead

It’s not good when you’re at an intersection and can’t see the road ahead. Years ago I came up with the idea for mirrors at intersections so that drivers won’t cross a highway too closely to another vehicle. Then I learned many intersections already had mirrors. I hadn’t seen them before, but I’ve seen plenty…

Imperfection

I saw a story on the news one day about some homeless guys camped out on a street in an affluent neighborhood where they caused problems for residents. The main complaint was having their yards used as toilets, and when one of the homeless was questioned about it in an interview, his response was people…

Forgetting the Past

The reason for raising the right hand in 17th- and 18th-century American courtrooms was to allow the judge to see if the thumb of the person swearing to tell the truth had been branded, a painful way of marking someone who had been convicted of a crime back then. Convicts these days are also judged…
