posted by remims

I’ve come to a seemingly contradictory conclusion: there is no faith without doubt. You cannot prove either that God exists, or that a Supreme Intelligence does not exist. Many have tried the former: Christians resorting to intellect and even mathematics […]

The voice of God? It’s hard to hear a whisper, but worth listening

I have always loved the weather, relished feeling the elements. Ever since I was a boy, it has been that way. I’d go barefoot in the snow, stand in a downpour, huddle in a cave opening to watch sheet lightning […]
