I love watching movies and series set in medieval times. For some strange reason, it brings something out of me and always has me wishing I lived during that periods (as a free man, of course). TV shows like Game of Thrones, Reign, Spartacus, etc. and movies like Lord of the rings, etc., basically anything … Continue reading Medieval Bias
Some time ago, I went to the supermarket to get some provisions and to get jam for a friend I lost a bet to. As you would expect, the supermarket had the prices of each product either slapped on it or on the shelf where the products were placed. And this got me thinking, what … Continue reading Homo Sapiens: The Walking & Thinking Labels and Tags

Good morning o, my people! So, I woke up this morning to a broadcast message supposedly from a renowned pastor who had seen a Revelation. A revelation that elucidated how close "rapture" is and how the unpalatable, abhorrent, repulsive, horrendous, and hellish hell is.

Philosophers often struggle and strive to create logical arguments to get at the truth of a particular subject or so the claim is. In philosophy classes, students are bombarded with various forms of logical deductive and inductive arguments, so that they know what qualifies as a genuine argument. The students are trained to avoid logical fallacies, and they write many a paper, where they will lose many a grade point if they fail to make a logical argument and avoid these fallacies.

According to legend, there is a small speck floating alone in a vast, empty forgotten stretch of the universe that has not experienced conflict. Unless you happen to be this miniscule particle (and I think the likelihood is low), conflict is a part of your identity. If, by some freakish chance, you are that tiny speck, you just ruined a perfectly good setup. I hope you’re happy with yourself.
Anyway, people have created a number of different techniques to handling, resolving, avoiding, causing, and denying conflict. In the real world, there are several ways to deal with it. Fiction, however, is not the real world.
Here’s the issue. For many years, authors, editors, publishers, and university professors who have never held a real job have developed a set a rules for each other that govern the ways in which a story may be told. Those who follow the rules are…

"C'mon, it's not a big deal! Seriously, you're just being a prude!" ...so I heard my friend say, while he tried convincing me about getting pissed at his frequent use of the f-word. Soon, I found myself questioning my detesting of the f-word, a conviction I had gotten over 10 years ago. I heard me … Continue reading Derationalizing Our Values
