Genesis Chapter Two

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. Genesis 2:1-2 ESV Welcome to the first indication of non-linear storytelling in the book of Genesis. Because even though all of creation is finished, Genesis 2:4 provides you with a retelling of everything you were just told in chapter one.1 In Chapter 2 Verse 7, we’re told of the creation of man and the absence of plants, but...

Genesis Chapter One

Preface This may be one of the most controversial chapters in the entire Bible. It’s impossible for me to approach this book and this chapter with a clean and blank slate. Given all the hours, days, and weeks I’ve poured into study of the doctrine of Creation, my approach will be biased, taking into account the sum of the sermons I’ve listened to, the books I’ve read, and the debates I’ve watched. Billions of people before me have read these words, each in their own time and with limited natural revelation available to them. I am but one droplet...

What has Ovienmhada been up to?

In November of 2015 I started a software development company called Aeeiee, like “A.I.” This company, as well as my wife becoming pregnant with our second child that same month (unknown to me until Christmas Eve), and my daughter now at an age that requires much more attention, have reorganized my priorities quite a bit.

In fact, out of my nine posts since November, I’ve only really been interested in about three of them. Then March, April, and May, I just stopped. There was...

The Differences Between Arizona and Germany

After taking a two week Christmas vacation in Germany, in December 2015, I noted a few differences that really made me appreciate the United States of America, and Arizona in particular. A direct comparison between the United States and Germany just isn’t fair. Germany is 137,903 square miles shared by a population of 80 million, while the USA is 3.8 million square miles shared by a population of 300 million. So a slightly better comparison is Arizona, with it’s 113,998 square miles, though it’s population is only 6 million. There are many reasons for the stark differences between Arizona and Germany. For one, we’ve...

A Mental Commentary on the Robotic Workforce Debate

The word robot means slave. Robot comes from the Czech word robota, which means “forced labor” or “serf”. After watching the above video, what do you think? Are robots going to doom the segment of the population without access to capital to extinction and create a Wall-E utopia for plump rich folks to ride around in hover-chairs, or will they create a utopia for everyone? I don’t know the answer. I’d like to think I do, but there’s an inherent problem to this debate. It’s not scientific. This is why there are different schools of economic thought, like there are...
