posted by remims

When historians someday summarize the “Arab Spring” protests, be sure that the Facebook social networking site will get prominent mention. In Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Syria, this hard-to-censor, impossible to stop digital electronic grapevine has been critical to liberty-seeking […]

What Darwin, Freud and Jung taught me about faith

posted by remims

Sometimes, I look back on the survival of my personal faith within the crucible of a liberal arts college education as nothing less than a miracle. Like many preachers kids, I came out of a sheltered, fundamentalist Christian (and Pentecostal […]
