#ourCOG 10 Christian Examples of Classic Logical Fallacies

Daniel_Huntington_Philosophy_and_Christian_ArtYou can’t seriously tell me that you’re interested in pursuing the truth without being open to the idea that there are areas where you’re wrong. Sharpening your beliefs against the beliefs others is a powerful way to put your own precepts on trial.

It takes discipline to not to believe everything you hear, while being pliable enough not to simply dismiss others’ ideas.  This is why healthy debate can be a valuable thing. Again, that’s if you’re willing to entertain the idea that you’re the one off the mark.

I touched on this in a post entitled Continue reading 10 Christian Examples of Classic Logical Fallacies #ourCOG

A New Year #ourCOG

#ourCOG A New Year
https://ourcog.org/a-new-year-2/

The banner waves in the breeze
Bringing hope of new days,
New victories,
New life,
To this once proud team.

The songs begin to play,
In the background filled
With anxious people
Looking less like fans
And more like lovers
Sick from infidelity and frozen affection.

Amid the claps
And shouts of “it’s our year”
Is the feeling that it might never be,
And yet, we are faithful still.

No matter the disappointment
You simply cannot divorce your favorite team.

red-light25 years in 60 seconds at the red-light…

I’m driving slowly in the dark and raining streets of my home town passing through clouds of car smoke. The gypsy ghetto in the outskirts of town is covered with the fog of fires made out of old tires burning in the yards. And the loud music adds that grotesque and gothic nuance to the whole picture with poorly clothed children dancing around the burnings.

The first red light stops me at the entrance to the “more civilized” part of the city. The bright counter right next to it slowly moves through t Continue reading 25 Years after Communism… #ourCOG
