  • Whose Science Is It?

    One of the more amusing aspects of the whole God debate to me is the exclusive territory of science.  As if certain crowds have a lock on particular disciplines. When studying the world around us, there are many different facets that can be taken into account.  And there are different theories and interpretations of the […]

  • Where Is My Faith?

    Faith is a difficult thing.  It shouldn’t be, but it is.  Faith permeates our lives in every way imaginable and yet we struggle with it where it matters most. Simply put, Faith is a belief that is held that is not based on a proof.  We utilize faith in our lives each and every day […]

  • The Words Mean What I Want Them To Mean When I Say Them

    To paraphrase Humpty Dumpty in Lewis Carroll’s Through The looking Glass.  Which is then completed though Alice’s reply: “The question is, ” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”   “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty. “which is to be master—that’s all.” Like Mr. Humpty Dumpty, we all want to be […]

  • Where Did The Void (Nothingness) Come From?

    To be honest, I had developed a schedule of sorts for my blog.  I had intended to introduce, and comment on, a series of items that interest me within the topics of Life / Religion / Politics / Science / and Philosophy in some sort of loosely structured but coherent order.  But I am already […]

  • Caught My Attention …

    I was definitely NOT thinking about blogging this today – but I was double blind sided on the way home and I have not been able to get it off my mind since. What was I blind sided by?  Car emblems.  You know, those magnetic, chrome, cute and witty, little flashy things people like to […]


    LRPSP. com has been up for over a week now and I thought I’d step back and provide some foundation for the categories, my biases, and the general discussions.  The About page provides an overview of the Blog, however I thought that over time a little more detail might be provided.  This is a short […]

  • Stacking The Data

    When you analyze things in life you have to be very careful not to allow your world view to stack the data in your favor.  This is extremely difficult to do.  People (humans) have a natural tendency to want things to go their way.  I know I struggle with this constantly.  People just want to […]


    Even as the Seattle Seahawks celebrated their big win the Stock Market took a dive.  There are winners and there are losers in life, but it is not always a zero sum game. In Matthew 5:3 Jesus Christ said that the poor in spirit have the Kingdom of Heaven. The word poor used here means destitute, totally […]

  • The Big Game

    Here we are and it is Super Bowl Sunday and most of America is excited about the big game.  Most people that are excited about the game are cheering for their favorite team to win. I am cheering for the Seattle Seahawks to take home the trophy.  Not that I have any particular ties to Seattle, […]

  • When is a Day not a Day?

    Sometimes my musings are current and other times they are reflective.  And thus, at points, my Blog may come across as a little random or disjointed.  My apologies, but at times I just start thinking about things that leads me down a rabbit hole. Today is one such day.  If you and I were having […]
