In short, this blog has something of a religion focus. Religion, world-views, science, mythology, memetics, morality and ethics… but mostly religion. The existence of this blog is largely a result of the context in which I grew up and studied. Stellenbosch has two young earth creationism peddling pentecostal churches. By investigating beliefs and the value they bring to people’s lives, it seeks to find peaceful resolutions to memetic conflicts and sketch out a potential path forward.
For an example of science-related posts, an index on this blog’s coverage of a creationism seminar can be found in the post Creation Ministries International Strikes Stellenbosch Again — Noah’s Flood?
The post The Problem with Diversity should serve as a demonstration of the importance of context, with a primary intention of discouraging people from jumping to conclusions about my worldview. I’m usually intentionally ambiguous. I aim to build bridges, which is best accomplished by refusing labels and encouraging people to think. You’d do well to not make any assumptions about my worldview. When it comes to posts, try to understand the main message, and let us talk about that. When it comes to peripheral issues, please consider asking some questions before making assumptions about what I mean.
Please try to keep comments on this page “on-topic”, i.e. comments that help newcomers get a feel for what this blog has to offer. As this page’s comments are longer lived than typical posts, I reserve the right to periodically remove comments that aren’t in line with the purpose of this page.
