Some basic Bible stuff

Work in Progress:

An intro to The Accountant's Tale and Unanswerable Questions:
Some (only a few) of the reasons why Christianity
has trouble in secular culture today,
and beginning thoughts on how we relate to ultimate reality as personal.

The Action Book:

An approach to action starting from narrative
rather than from the idea of will- or intention-initiated motions.

Social Ethics: Physician-Assisted Suicide

The campaign to legalize so-called "physician-assisted suicide" (PAS) is perennial, and it is especially dangerous to people like me, the disabled, for, in the homicidal pity of some, we are thought to be especially suitable for PAS. Some of the opposition in California can be found here.
