The next few entries will be musings, random thoughts, or mini rants that I wrote prior to today. This post however, is my opening salvo, so to speak, so I’ll try to explain the purpose behind this blog.
How often I’ll add to this blog, I can’t say, because I'm not one to "over share" on social media. You see, I grew up in the 1970’s, a pre internet and pre cell phone generation. While I have owned and/or worked on computers since 1988, so I do Tweet and post links to my causes and petitions on Facebook. However, I have never taken a selfie, nor do I feel the need to share every aspect of my life with the entire world, which seems to be something “millennials” feel they have to do. You can call me “old school”, “old fashioned”, or maybe just old.
In this blog, I’ll share my views, beliefs, and observations about the world, and maybe a few introspections. You are welcome to leave comments and engage in a dialogue with me and other readers. The only prerequisite is that the comments remain civil and courteous. Please don’t be a troll, you will be starved and banished from this little fiefdom. Ye be warned.
Creationism IS theology (see definition below). If it's taught in public schools it should be in a theology class and NOT in a science class. Personally, I would prefer that public schools use their limited resources to provide art and music classes and leave theology where is belongs in churches, synagogues, temples, et al. not in publicly funded schools.

I’m leaving the U.S. Constitutional separation of church and state argument to others.
