Below is a list created by Jordan B. Peterson, and, originally posted to Quora. I have duplicated it here because nobody should ever visit Quora (↗️). Tell the truth. Do not do things that you hate. Act so that you can tell the truth about how you act. Pursue what is meaningful, not what is […]

what is truth?
what is truth? is truth knowable? at what point is one satisfied that they have arrived at it? do we start with falsehood and whittle away until only truth is left? do we start with truth and add our own beliefs to it, diluting it? do we do both? are we capable of holding conflicting […]
Palin’s Deceptions: The Nail in the Coffin
This position splintered this controversy into two prongs: one focusing on Bristol Palin, and a second focusing on Sarah Palin. It was always been the goal of the McCain campaign that the focus be on Bristol, in spite of their pious protestations that “children of candidates should be off limits,” because framing this story to […]
six months without any water?
A meditating teenage boy in south-central Nepal is drawing the attention of scientists after attracting huge crowds in the past six months and earning himself the name Buddha-reincarnate. They are mulling over how to examine him without disturbing his meditation. Ram Bahadur Bamjan’s friends, relatives and managers say he has been meditating without drinking water […]
Plankeye (follow up)
There’s been some contention as to my post on “plankeye”. I will concede that we are indeed to “make judgement” — even about people and what they are up to. But the context of the verse you pulled out shows the difference between what Jesus was referring to in John 7 and what he is […]
who is worthy of compassion?
christianitytoday.com wrote: As Americans set new records for charitable giving in response to Hurricane Katrina, some fundraisers are seeing a principle confirmed: when the suffers are perceived as innocent victims, donors respond generously. On the other hand, giving patterns suggest donors are losing patience with chronic problems such as poverty, in which suffering is arguably […]
why do we have bodies?
i have a question that i’d like to discuss. i’m not looking for “the right” answer, as there isn’t one. you can use bible verses if you like — there are some that are very relevent to the discussion, but i don’t think we can come up with “this is what the bible says about […]
romans 2 is interesting
i got the idea from another website, but decided to try the idea, and found the results startling. i would love to hear some of the questions raised by the text below, but first an explanation of what i’ve done: a) substituted “Christian” for “Jew” b) substituted “Muslims or Buddhists” for “Gentiles” c) substituted “Baptism” […]
it is a mystery
about one-third of the planet’s current population live in areas that have historical ties to the religion associate with jesus christ — and yet so very few people actually study and follow his teachings. here in indiana, where i live, you’re hard pressed to find someone, anyone, who doesn’t believe in god in some capacity […]
seven views of truth
tonight, whilst doing some “light” reading, i came across these seven things that people tend to mean when they speak of “truth”: 1. Reality â€“ Sometimes, we use truth to mean â€œwhatâ€™s out there,â€ or â€œwhatâ€™s really, really, real.â€ 2. A human perception of reality â€“ Sometimes we use the term to mean how an […]
all truth is god’s truth
all truth is god’s truth. i love this part of acts: 17:22 So Paul, standing in the midst of the Areopagus, said: â€œMen of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. 23 For as I passed along and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this […]
A friend of mine recently wrote: This is the very reason I stopped attending my youth group. It was so unwelcoming. And, there’s something else, too. It seems to me, that rejection from the church crowd holds a bigger emotional consequence than rejection from other crowds. These are, after all, the people with whom you […]
