  1. ad hominem arguments

    The formula of ad hominem arguments is:

    1. A person makes an argument.
    2. That person has some kind of flaw, character or otherwise.
    3. That person's argument is wrong.

    I've seen people I find to be downright VILE people make arguments that I think were valid. They may have had unrighteous ulterior motives for making those arguments, but that is beside the point. I still think the ARGUMENTS they made were valid. I've seen those people's arguments attacked ...

  2. measurements of time

    I've been thinking about measurements of time a lot during the last few days.

    For several hours, it's two different years on different places of the Earth's surface. For example, it was 2009 some places and 2010 other places. It will at some point be 2010 some places and 2011 other places.

    The same applies to decades, centuries, millenia, etc.

    For example, for several hours, it was 1979 (thus in the 1970's) some places and 1980 (thus in the 1980's) other ...

  5. Direction

    I have been frustratrated in the last few weeks. Much of it has to do with things I can work on like time management and work related issues. I am currently bussy with Bible School at my church. I am doing the second year since I did the first year in 2004. It has helped alot so far because it has showed me where most of my problems probably come from. On the one hand I feel like I'm in the right place. On the other hand it sometimes feels like I am just floating around and not really able to get ...
