Gastrolith
(Poetry Scales 35 )   I still remember as a kid in school learning about those rocks that, though not bone turned into rock, were still fossils. Swallowed by dinosaurs to help grind the food in their stomach, that otherwise would go undigested. They were cr...

8 Years and 2000 Thoughts Later...
Just a quick “cheat” of a post (the 2000th one!) to mention that it was exactly eight years ago today that I booted up this blog and posted my first thoughts … the thoughts that saddled me with the slightly confusing name: NonModern. I stick by it, though.

“Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” (2015)
For those who have had an interest in Scientology, or cultic systems in general, the stuff revealed in “Going Clear” was likely not new. The fascinating thing about the documentary is the way that it is revealed. Back in the mid-nineties when I was taking ...

"The Silent Speaker" by Rex Stout
So what do you do when the murder victim would not want you to solve the crime? At least, not right away? Is there a case where withholding evidence is the right thing to do? In the case of “The Silent Speaker” it causes someone their life, this attempt t...

Three Eleven
Beautifully befitting is the festering realization that we are trapped in time without the capacity to see the ends. Eternity is the splinter that pricks the heart. Wisdom the acceptance that our drive to understand is bordered by our nature. Created as int...

"The Golden Spiders" bu Rex Stout
I have not yet read a majority of the Nero Wolfe mysteries. Those that I have read have been great. Stout always seemed to find a clever way to let Wolfe solve the puzzle with his intellect, outthinking everyone around him. Even Archie, who is in on just...

Submission as Unity, Love and Humility (1 Peter 3:8-12)
Peter ends this section dealing with “honorable conduct” that dealt mostly with the way we are to be respectful and submissive in our behavior, by encouraging five qualities: Unity of mind does not mean that all believers should think the same thoughts, or ...

Forbearance
(Poetry Scales 34 )  As the people of a God who loves those that hate Him      should we not be defined by forbearance? Cowboy Christianity says fight the enemy,      but the Christ of the Bible gave His life for us. Don’t take sin of others as an attack on...

"Avengers :Age of Ultron" (2015) a brief, non-spoilery look
I keep waiting for Marvel to stumble in their movie line. Not even a true dud, but at least a step down in quality. I was pretty sure, however, that this latest entry would not be that misstep. I have too much confidence in the writer/director. One would...
