There is SO much going on in the world right now:

Will the Democrats nominate a Socialist and can he beat Trump?

How many more years before climate catastrophes become so bad even the deniers won't be able to deny what is happening - and will it, by that time, be too late?

I worry about nuclear proliferation, how long before Iran and Saudia Arabia get nukes? With North Korea mocking the rest of the world, particularly the U.S. - how long before some other tin pot dictator goes nuclear?

Earth's population is due to reach 10 million by 2050, and where will the resources come from to feed and house them all?

Will the Coronavirus be checked? Or will large numbers of people continue to die? Are we over-reacting? (more people world wide die from the common flu every year)

NASA officials 'baffled' after space cameras catch UFO following ISS for over 20 minutes
A BIZARRE UFO hovering between Earth and the International Space Station was caught on a live camera feed by NASA in incredible footage that lasts over 20 minutes. By Oli Smith PUBLISHED: 00:05, Tue, Feb 25, 2020| UPDATED: 17:43, Tue, Feb 25, 2020  Astonishing footage of a UFO hovering above Earth has been caught by NASA cameras. The incredible video, captured on the US space agency's live camera sees the cone-shaped object keep pace with the International Space Station (ISS) above it. In a bizarre twist, the NASA camera zooms in on the object, appearing to show the US space agency acknowledges the UFO. The footage was posted by UFO enthusiast Scott Waring on his YouTube channel ET Data Base and has since gone viral across social media. The 22-minute long footage shows the bus-sized UFO moving at the same speed as the ISS, which moves at 78km/second. At the end of the live feed stream, …

Millennials and boomers are changing divorce in America — but not how you think

Millennials and boomers are changing divorce in America — but not how you think

Millennials and boomers are changing divorce in America — but not how you think We live in a time of roiling social discord. Thanksgiving, once an opportunity for touch football and carb-induced naps, is now a politically charged family minefield. Real-life friendships disintegrate under pressure on social media. And the days of civil public discourse and bipartisanship seem distant, indeed. With so much cultural finger-pointing and political name-calling, it would stand to reason that American marriages would be in danger, too. Surely some of that toxicity must be spilling over into the home? Think again. Divorce lawyers, and the sociologists who carefully examine their clients, say the state of American marital affairs is far more complicated. Younger couples are marrying later in life, with the median age at marriage rising over the past two decades, from 26.8 for men and 25.1 for women in 2000 to 29.8 …

Do We Have Free Will?

The case against free will In the 1980s, the researcher Benjamin Libet conducted experiments that showed our minds make decisions to do something about one-half to one-third of a second before we become consciously aware of the decision. Also, the human mind operates under a warped time illusion. Under this illusion, our conscious minds believe that we consciously make a decision at the same time we become consciously aware of it.

Libet's data was interpreted as meaning that our fast powerful unconscious minds make decisions. Assuming that free will is defined as decisions that are consciously made, we do not have much or any free will. After all, conscious free will or intent could not have any role in decision-making if decisions are made before conscious awareness arises.

Later research found that some decisions can be detected in the brain up to about 10 seconds before we become consciously aware of it. But even then, the mind illusion leads us to consciously believe that we c…

A Short Vignette

I am inspired to post this little fantasy setting vignette after reading this post from Roxanna Piedrafuette. I wrote it a couple months ago one morning while feeling inspired by my dreams, as well as thinking about my lovely fiancee. 
I hope you enjoy it.

Sunshine filtered through the old, warped glass, casting wild waves of light that skittered across the floor in a pale crimson as the rays danced between the tree branches outside. The cool of the morning felt invigorating, giving the day a sense of vast potential, as if anything were possible. It was the perfect kind of day, the kind where inspiration flowed freely, giving energy to inventors, mathematicians, magicians, and writers.
One such writer was hastily scribbling down notes, her mind spilling forth ideas faster than her hands could follow. Words tumbled onto the parchment, telling a story wrought from the essence of romance and adventure! Her heart swelled at each sentence as her characters wove through a w…

Six Evidences of a Young Earth

Without millions and billions of years, evolutionary history completely falls apart. Here are just a few of many credible evidences from various branches of science that tell of a world much younger than evolutionists claim. Evidence 1 Geology: Radiocarbon in Diamonds Far from proving evolution, carbon-14 dating actually provides some of the strongest evidence for creation and a young earth. Radiocarbon (carbon-14) cannot remain naturally in substances for millions of years because it decays relatively rapidly. For this reason, it can only be used to obtain “ages” in the range of tens of thousands of years. Scientists from the RATE (Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth) project examined diamonds that evolutionists consider to be 1–2 billion years old and related to the earth’s early history. Diamonds are the hardest known substance and extremely resistant to contamination through chemical exchange. Yet the RATE scientists discovered significant detectable levels of radiocarbon in th…

Sneak Peek-The Four Dragons

Dear all,

Being that you are all so nice and supportive, I am honored to offer you a quick sneak peak of one of my next books. 
Please see below: Working Title: The Four Dragons by Roxanna Piedrafuette, and it's projected to come out in 2022.
The first dragon was the sea serpent who came when the stormy waters roared with the rage of the Goddess to strike fear in the hearts of the spineless and the lazy. “I had a dream last night monsignor,” she said. For once, she appeared subdued, uncertain.  He didn’t say anything, his eyes were fixed on the fire, his thoughts, presumably, on his dinner or on his God.  Nonetheles, she persisted: “I dreamed that I stood on a hill from whence I saw an interseccion of four roads, I could hear the summon of the war horns and the cries of the wounded and the dying. The legions marched and their iron heels filled the air like thunder, but I could not see anything because I was blinded by burning blood. Then the great Sea Serpent mother murmured in my ear ‘…
