Doxastic Openness

DOXASTIC OPENNESS “If you are a person of the same sort as myself, I should be glad to continue questioning you: If not, I can let it drop. Of what sort am I? One of those who would be glad to be refuted if I say anything untrue, and glad to refute anyone else who might speak untruly; but just as glad, mind you, to be refuted as to refute, since I regard the former as the greater benefit.” —Socrates in Gorgias

There is a thin line between being a part of it and being apart from it.

Funny anecdote

We were at BJ’s last night having a few biers with friends. The local Catholic priest, who shall remain nameless, was eating a pizza at the bar. I thought the pizza looked delicious from where I was sitting. I asked the bartender to order me what the priest was having.

That pizza was amazing! Maybe the best pizza ever. Upon the completion of our meal I decided to go talk to the Father…..

That’s when Janet stopped me dead in my tracks, saying: “Don’t do it, honey. Let him go in peace.”

There has always been too much choir preaching. How else to explain the gridlock in almost every human endeavor?

Just a thought

Some people have no idea what they’re doing, and a lot of them are really good at it. —G.C.


In reference to In vitro…

Just an observation

If only my observations would change maybe my thoughts would change, too. —R-U.S.


It’s complicated.

It’s hard to know where the truth lies and wherein lies the truth.

Clean up after yourself

The key to cleaning up after yourself is retracing your steps. 😉


Empty is better than full

Keeping one another empty has probably led us to more happiness than keeping one another full ever could. 😉


I’m just saying

Southwest to northeast is a 180. 🙂


Red letter day

Eva Marie Scherer swam without her floaties today. Way to really do it, Eva!



Two sides of the same coin

Trump & Clinton are two sides of the same coin. There is a fine line between things not getting any worse and things not getting any better. 😉
