I think the auto awesome feature is being run by Monet, but my cat still looks relaxed on his stone hammock.

Two family members meeting each other for the first time--the barrier is required, for the big one might not like what happens without it. #caturday

A wilted arugula salad with uncured ham, mushrooms, shallots, and garlic.  A #paleo meal except for the parmesan not being from grass-fed animals.  #lunchathome

I have been struggling with this question for some time, maybe not with the correct answer but how we should go about policing the correct answer within philosophy (although this is a separate issue).

Does Christian Philosophy exist or is it just Theology?

There are many who claim to be Christian Philosophers, but if philosophy is the pursuit of wisdom, and Christianity is the practice of finding salvation through Christ, can someone be a Christian Philosopher in good faith?  In a more general way, does the belief in God preclude someone from being a philosopher?  Is the experience of a scientist who is religious analogous to the philosopher who is religious?  I have a suspicion that they are different but I suppose both could claim to be pursuing God by pursuing knowledge/wisdom.  Still the question remains how Theology would not be a more proper designation for those who pursue God in pursuing knowledge.

True, i have seen and early in my life after my unexplainable experience came off as a fanatic, but i have calmed down quite a bit since than, and love discussing the search for truth.
But my discernment of truth through mans experiences has been heightened by my unexplained event. and it has value in philosophic line of research, for it adds to the descussion as i am able to keep it reasoned and with in relms of logic. except when we have not choice but to accept there are thing that happen that just don't fit rational logic.
That is why it is Philosophy and not Science.

Walked back to the hotel from Fremont on Sunday night, the Space Needle was asking for her picture to be taken.

Following from +Spiritus De Veritas 's post, what about the opposite end of the spectrum?

Tyrants will say..."There is but one Truth!"

What is the truth of their statement, if it has any?  Which is a more dangerous version of truth to hold, the ignorant or the tyrannical, and which party is more likely to become aware of their inadequacy?

That's correct. However, as for flanging comments as spam and whatnot, anyone can do it, even if he/she is not the original poster.

Three stars for an outstanding beer selection, but the service/kitchen lacks any structure, which causes massive delays when busy. I hope they fix this aspect soon because the food is actually really tasty.

I must provide the caveat that my wife and I have been here only one time. I think it is difficult to make poor Mexican food, but last night our food was simply atrocious. I order a burrito and my first bite tasted like cooked meat--that's it cooked meat. The meat in my burrito was unseasoned and there was nothing else but cheese in the burrito. My wife order a salad and the chicken must have been pre-cooked because it had the qualities of chicken that you would find on an airport chicken salad: tough texture, burned in grill marks, no moisture, and bland taste. I find it hard to imagine that the cooks wouldn't have seasoned their food but that is what we experienced. For the price (and even if it was free), this is BY FAR the worst Mexican food we have ever had. On the plus side, the drinks were good but of course come along with the Strip markup. Again, rarely do I find the need to write a poor review, but I felt obligated to write this one.

The pizza is good and the ranch dressing is better.

Food is tasty and the beer is good, but neither will blow you away. Service was great in the bar, and the happy hour is dangerously priced.

The breakfast food is delicious and the coffee is also very good. The ingredients used are of good quality and there is something for every breakfast appetite, even if the menu appears to be small.

Great place to relax in the afternoon with a sandwich, you have to provide the food, but the beer is worth it.
