“The Riddle No Atheists Can Solve”

12 July, 2009 Ken Religion & Spirituality

Yes, I clicked on a link that took me to a site claiming an indisputable proof for “intelligent design” — one that can’t be “solved” based on the argument DNA is a Code + Codes require authors = Life was created consciously, not by natural process It took my brain cells less than 0.2 seconds […]

Email to the Dead

29 June, 2009 Ken Business & WorkFamily & PersonalReligion & Spirituality

I didn’t write about this months ago when it happened, as I wanted everything to settle down and then had other matters to attend to among the living.  Bob Kell, Jr., my friend (and accountant / networking associate) passed away earlier this year.  (On an odd note, he was just putting together the taxes that […]

Ever wonder where?

29 June, 2009 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalReligion & Spirituality

It never amazes me how deep the roots are of our personal values.  But unlike those who would rather be totally self-deterministic in some false sense of empowerment for its own sake, I would rather embrace them as consistent personality strengths and weaknesses I can make the best of. Why bring this up?  I asked […]

Eye of the Beholder

20 June, 2009 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalReligion & Spirituality

I just read an alumni newsletter article — or rather tried to read it in its entirety — about the new statue of Saint Marguerite D’Youville at my Alma Mater.  It’s a long-winded litany of interpretive assumptions about the artist’s intentions linked to vague ideals, right down to the significance of how far apart the saint’s […]

Yet another death …

4 June, 2009 Ken Everyday LifeReligion & Spirituality

Ben Maryniak, author and historian, was given a service at his grave-site last weekend at Forest Lawn Cemetery (near President Fillmore’s plot).  A small regiment of Union soldiers has a three-gun salute (louder than I expected), there were period musicians, “Taps” bugled, and women in hooped dresses.  Even a re-enactor of Lincoln showed, as well […]

Trivial Postings?

25 March, 2009 Ken Everyday LifeParkviewReligion & Spirituality

I just did some baseboard priming where the fishtank will end up being.  Funny really … I was thinking I had to go back to Home Depot to buy some painter’s tape, but after I started without it, I remembered I don’t need it — I’ve got some degree of kung-fu in house painting, after all.  […]

The Golden Compass

24 October, 2008 Ken Everyday LifeReligion & Spirituality

We rented The Golden Compassthe other night, as we heard it was good.  We also wanted to see what all the anti-theistic controversy was all about.  Sorry, just didn’t see it.  The Magisterium logo sort of had a stylized cross in it, though, and it was very much about monopolizing ‘popular truth’ reminiscent of the […]

Posada – Journey to a New Home

18 August, 2008 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalReligion & Spirituality

I’ve finally taken the time to get back to my journal here, as today I walked from our old home to our new home. We officially moved two weeks ago, but now we are settled in for the most part. Merry dropped me off at Fisher Park, I surveyed the land, and Koala in backpack (along […]

I actually have a list of the most beautiful songs ever written, which includes Greensleeves, Pie Jesu, Chuaigh Me ‘na Rosann, and Shalom Aleichem. Here is a truly moving version of the last one … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfdUG5ht4Xk.
