Never have more bad ideas come from a fanbase in comic book history: people irrationally attached to spiky blonde hair, tails, and karate outfits. I accidentally stumbled upon Dragon Ball when I was a kid on a Saturday morning while watching UPN channel 45. I was immediately enthralled by this kid named Goku, his power pole, and the amazing Flying Nimbus. Nim-buuuuuuus! I was hooked. Only a couple years after that, the same network picked up...

On Friday November 13, 2015 the world was shocked to hear the news of a coordinated terrorist massacre that took place in Paris, claiming the lives of 129 victims.1 It’s the deadliest terror attack in Europe since the Madrid bombings of 2004. The world reeled back in horror as video was seen of gunfire erupting in the middle of a rock concert in Bataclan concert hall, explosions could be heard at a soccer match, and video cameras depicted people running out the back alley of the Bataclan for their lives, stepping over the bodies of the bleeding and dying, others...

I Believe My Bible Over My Eyes

“How do you tell Olaf that a summer at the beach will kill him?” SOC: Oversharing on the Internet This post is for those close to me. This is for those occasionally confused by why I say what I say, those who have persevered through this blog, occasionally commenting in civil discourse. This is for the lurkers, for those of you that say nothing, and are inwardly struggling with your faith, but dare not let anyone know, for fear of social consequences. Many of you have known me since childhood, and are somewhat perplexed my my theological changes over the years,...
