The technological advancement made possible by modern science boggles the mind.

Magnify His Work

Whether we admit it or not, we all tend to lose more than a little bit of perspective when we face a touch of adversity. After all, I may or not have thought that my life was coming to an end the last time I found myself in the throes of a twenty-four hour stomach…

The Days of My Prime

If you pay attention to sports, you will sometimes hear a commentator refer to an athlete being “in his prime.” Interestingly, the “prime” age may vary depending upon the sport. For most sports the prime falls in the late twenties and early thirties, after gaining sufficient experience but before the body has worn down too…

Elusive Insight

Constantly developing technology, advances in medicine, and the information available on the Internet combine with pride to convince people  today that they have built a world of wonders—despite simultaneously destroying the best of that world in the name of being a more advanced civilization.
