I am obligated to my readers to provide positive perspective. In this catastrophic night of darkness, I am thankful to live in a free state that still honors basic human rights. Let us help Illinois protect the future by assuring that Planned Parenthood and other organizations here have adequate means to serve all those who need their help. May the other governments soon realize that once people have tasted freedom, it is unwise to deprive them of it.

135 The godhood of real people [7 May 2022]

Sometimes freedom is reached by breaking barriers. This article identifies religious barriers, including the fallen-man perspective of the Bible, that hold back enlightenment. The epilogue traces one person's bombshell spiritual journey to freedom.        (629 words)

134 Don't wait for a government order: do this now [6 May 2022]

Why is the Carter Center successful? Are you ready to apply your own initiative to making the world better? Here we think through applying your means to human needs. You are more empowered than you think. Taking these steps matches who you are with what needs to be done. You find your meaning.        (376 words)

133 The Ark of Noah - an allegory [9 Feb 2022]

The Old Testament exposes us to people's efforts to address society's problems. It is not a rigorous historical account of events. It is valuable for philosophical stimulation. Its negative viewpoint on the human condition is counterbalanced by deep discussions of enduring truths. The challenge is to recognize the meaning without bogging down in the painful details.

132 [ Gospel = Social ] Order [2 Feb 2022]

Today's article quotes scriptures about equality that contributed significantly to Ernstraudian philosophy, conflating spiritual and material quality of life. Heavenly benefits are available now to those who live the heavenly principles. The article goes on to liken the LDS doctrine of three degrees of glory to the three types of behavior we find on this earth: make things happen, watch things happen, wonder what happened. Theological and humanist expressions can be remarkably equivalent.        (348 words)

131 Theology of Humanism [1 Feb 2022]

Am I a preacher? Am I an atheist? My readers reside in and between both camps. I write to them all, trying to do so in their languages. My personal thought process combines more viewpoints than these. Existence is unitary; our descriptions vary. I write as a future god while I am writing as an atheist, recognizing that my value is not what I write but rather what you think after you read it.        (360 words)
