Can you do something for me?Tell me...Please don't think tomorrow.What?Yeah, you heard me. You have been thinking everyday, every moment, all the time since you were born. Can't you just stop it for one day?Well, no...You can't stop? You mean you don't have a choice. You can't stop thinking even if you want to. That sounds like an addiction.Thinking is an addiction. From the moment we wake up the voice in our heads and the mind's eye become activated. We barely notice them while they dictate our lives.

The creation versus evolution debate has raged for decades. Many are left to wonder if there really is a debate anymore. The voice that dominates most origin discussions is that of evolutionary thought.

If evolutionary thought were as clear-cut as many insist, there would be no debate.

The truth is, creation and evolution can never be proved with one hundred percent certainty when faced with established scientific standards. The best we can do in this life is to examine all of the evidence, weigh it carefully, and then (with no prejudice), follow … [Read more...] about Follow the Evidence of Evolution
Our modern age of convenience makes just about everything we need or want available with a click on the computer, a phone call, or at worst a drive to the neighborhood store. There isn't much we can't have delivered or have done for us, and very few of our affairs we can't manage online. And quite frankly, it's great.The "Just-In-Time" inventory and manufacturing methods utilized throughout the overall supply chain, and in most business's have been invaluable in terms of efficiency and reducing costs. But mindlessly relying on them for daily living can make us less resilient and ill-prepared should the unexpected happen. The downside is that as we become accustomed to having what we want, when we want it, we gradually build a lifestyle that grows to depend on a vast interconnected and interdependent supply chain that in reality has no backup, little redundancy, and is far from failsafe. The question we should ask ourselves, is "what happens when it breaks?"It actually "breaks" fairly … [Read more...] about Just-In-Time Life – Riding the Edge of Disaster
