Against Aquinas: An In-Depth Critique of “Natural Law” Ethics, Theology, and Metaphysics

Hot damn! It’s been way too long, brothers and sisters, but I finally kept my promise. I’m back in the philosophy groove, following up on the last philosophy piece I wrote a while ago—Aristotle’s Curse, which was a critique of Edward Feser’s The Last Superstition. That essay had a lot of history-related analysis mixed in […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 21 (September 23, 2016): Busy busy busy!

God damn! Not much relaxing this week, brothers and sisters, cause I’ve been cuh-ray-zee busy! I did manage to get a bit of relaxing done, though. Here’s what I’ve been doing… WATCHAN: Berserk 12 (last episode): Urgh…what a letdown. Since the main antagonist, Mozgus, was killed in the previous ep, there’s not really a whole […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 20 (September 16, 2016): Relaxan!

Not much to say about this week, though it was pretty fun all around. I’ve been eating at a lot of different restaurants lately, lotta folks around here know me by name. A German place, an Italian place, and a Japanese place, mainly 😀 But anyways… WATCHAN: OPM 8: Easily the best episode yet! I […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 19 (September 9, 2016): True relaxation!

Yes yes yes, being home is a lot nicer than being away. Here’s what I’ve been doing to unwind after my trip to South Carolina: WATCHAN: No new eps of One-Punch Man, as it was just a marathon of the previous ones last Saturday. Berserk 10: I thought this episode was OK, despite, yet again, […]

Friendship Matters more than Anything 

Originally posted on Padre Steve's World…Musings of a Progressive Realist in Wonderland:
Friends of Padre Steve’s World, Today just a short reflection on friendship following the unexpected death of yet another friend. Today some of us gathered at our favorite watering hole who remember him, and to console each other. There were hugs,…

Living the Good Life, Episode 18 (September 2, 2016): Thank God for coming back home!

Yes yes yes, being home is a lot nicer than being away. Here’s what I’ve been doing to unwind after my trip to South Carolina: WATCHAN: OPM 6: I wrote a bit of an essay on this for my Tumblr, which I shall repost here–longest bit of anime writing I’ve done in a while. “I […]
