I do an awful lot of thinking, and probably do a lot of awful thinking. Problem is that since nobody can hear my thinking it’s only subject to correction by chance.
That’s where you come in, and the reason for the tag line “Helping to build a better Dave.” I am going to try to put a lot of my thoughts here as the spirit moves me, and your job will be to correct stink’n think’n, help give me a check up from the neck up, and direct me towards TRVTH.
My interests are too wide ranging to list and so you may expect almost anything from quantum computing to pipe organs.
As the son of a conservative Southern Baptist minister, I am acutely aware of the many “flavors” of Christian belief there are to be found in the areas where I grew up and have lived since. Some may see a conflict between my thoughts on temporal matters of science and society and my professed faith. I do not, as I divide theology and science with a hard line. Theology deals with “by whose hand?” while science deals with “How did He do it?” in my own world view. There can be no judgments by one of these that are not in perfect harmony with the other, and to the extent they appear to be is human error in all cases.
I love science and have kept abreast of the latest discoveries all my life, but unlike many, I am not dazzled by it as I consider our current knowledge level to be quite primitive. In fact, I often describe my view of our level of understanding of the nature of our universe as being, as a species, about as far along as a baby is between birth and their first smile. That statement may actually be generous since we have yet to even leave the womb, planet Earth. Until we do, we have no way of knowing what we will be when we grow up.
