Many of us millennials chose a profession at a young age, pursued the pertaining academic path, and then began a career in that profession that will consume the greater part of our life. We went to college to learn a trade, not to become educated. Our true education will come from life experience, because our academic education just gave we what we...

The search for truth is not like any other search. When looking for something, we usually know when we’ve found it. But truth plays tricks on us, does it not? There are so many factors that influence our impression of the truth, not the least of which being our inclination to simply believe what we want to believe. So when searching for truth, it b...

As human beings, we are conditioned to be selfish. To demonstrate express interest in oneself is part of our survival instinct. Spending our attention focused on ourselves allows us to become aware of our own needs. When we feel sick, hungry, sleepy—we notice these needs and care for ourselves accordingly. And it keeps us alive.

I have known people...

I read so many "how to" articles and blog posts that they tend to discourage me more than anything, because as I'm reading them I think to myself, "I don't know how to do anything this thoroughly." My line of work involves concepts and ideals, and the only tangible fruit of my labor is seeing my words on a page.

Sometimes there is no horizon. Sometimes I'm just stuck in a dark room with four bare walls. Also, sometimes the help that comes doesn't help. Sometimes the things you've always believed seem invalid. Sometimes it all makes sense, and other times it's all just jumbled and incoherent. Some belief systems provide just the right hope and inspiration w...

Changing the way people think isn't always a good thing. Sometimes I try to do it just for fun, only to find out that the common way of thinking is actually the wise way. Other times though, I discover a piece of wisdom that is usually overlooked. 


Recently I was walking with some co-workers on our semi-daily afternoon stroll to get our blood pumpi...

Another week and I found myself, yet again, overwhelmed. I can’t handle this! I think. There are many things going on, I can’t possibly do all of them.

I’ve always welcomed opportunities in my life. But what happens when God opens too many doors? Or when you simply feel overwhelmed by the amount of tasks on your never-ending “to do” list...



Philosophy is not the most popular subject, perhaps because it's so close to us that we have to shift our perspective to see it. It's like the friend who sneaks up behind you and says, "Guess who?"

The philosophy of the day influences all the most popular songs, all the most prestigious universities, all the box office hit movies and more. Some...

Even if you’re not a sports fan you’ve likely heard about a recent incident involving Donald Sterling, owner of the professional basketball team, the Los Angeles Clippers. The furor isn’t about the sacredness and importance of marriage (Sterling is married but has a girlfriend); instead, this is about audio of Sterling making racist comments to his...

God is not just a myth as atheists claim, but rather, there is good evidence for God’s existence.

Question: Have you ever wondered where everything came from and why something exists at all rather than just nothing?  Where did it all come from?  “The Big Bang,” someone might reply.   Well, of course the Big Bang, but where did that come from? Wher...

Philosophy isn't exactly a popular subject of conversation these days, but it could be. It could even be fun to summarize what certain philosophies are all about. Here are some ways that advocates of certain philosophical systems may respond to the question 'Why did the chicken cross the road?':

The Rationalist - There really is no proof that the...
