    .....see more about what I'm into below!!:eheh:

    Mini-Bio: I'm getting old, but I'm still constantly thinking, pondering, mulling things over in my mind. I'm married, but I'm constantly learning about the continual give and take that comes with the relationship I have with my wife. I'm a father, but I often wonder how well I'm preparing my child to face the world as it is. I'm a Christian and have been for quite some time, but I'm always reminded of Paul's Admonition to be sober, mature, steadfast and enduring in the Holy Spirit. I strive to be all these things, yet I don't count myself as having attained any of these things as I should. In all of this, I carry on, but I know in my heart, unfathomably, that it is really Christ who carries me ...

    My Favorite Quotes:

    [​IMG]
    (C.S. Lewis)

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    [​IMG]
    (Søren Kierkegaard)
    "Out of love of humankind, out of despair over my awkward predicament of having achieved nothing and of being unable to make anything easier than it had already been made, out of genuine interest in those who make everything easy, I comprehended that it was my task: to make difficulties everywhere.”



    [​IMG]
    (Albert Einstein)
    "The reciprocal relationship of epistemology and science is of noteworthy kind. They are dependent on each other. Epistemology without contact with science becomes an empty scheme. Science without epistemology is–insofar as it is thinkable at all–primitive and muddled."

    (Paul, the Apostle)
    "For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear."

    (Me)
    "I believe in resurrection, not insurrection; I believe in revelation, not revolution!" [...pa-tump!]
