Reading Time: 3 minutes If you’re like me and something looks so bizarre on the internet you just have to Google search it just to get to the bottom of the insanity. At first, I thought the Holy Spirit Board by Holy Spirit Games – Christian Religious Talking Board for Seance with Planchette was one of those photoshop sort […]
HumanGate: Al Mohler’s Dishonest Game

Gaming the Stats. (Good News, Everybody!)
Reading Time: 8 minutes When you present people with anything statistic-related, and you reward that statistic based on its level, then yes, people are going to do anything they can to figure out what the statistic is and manipulate it.
Operation Pitchfork and A Moment of Crisis.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Like so many ex-Christians before me, for just a brief time I dangled on a tightrope between belief and disbelief as I moved from one world to another, from one worldview to another, from one entire working paradigm to another.

Christian Mary Sues.
Reading Time: 10 minutes This blog writes itself. Case in point: The night before last, my doorbell rang. I wasn’t decent, so Mr. Captain answered it. I heard a brief conversation, ending with him politely declining whatever the person at our door wanted to sell, and when he got back, I asked who it’d been. “One of our neighbors. […]
