For the most part I greatly admire the Amish tradition, that is except for their practice of shunning. But, in their mind it is necessary to keep the faith pure. For me, I need to keep my sanity in the coming year and I think a shunning will help me do that. That is what this post is all about.

I spend an hour or so each morning with my daily reads. Since I am for the most part shunning things in the political world at least for now, I am always on the lookout for new ideas of looking at the world. This post is about one of those sources I recently found.

This post is a combination of my topics of Aspies, Philosophy, and Religion, but is centered around the topic of death. Those with Asperger’s just don’t see death as most do. And I kinda think that is a good thing. That is what this post is all about.

I have been diligently trying to understand the rationale that some folks have in praising Trump. One of those efforts was to read a book entitled In Defense Of Elitism by Joel Stein. The author was recently interviewed on the PBS Newshour of which I am a regular viewer. Some points I gleaned from the book is what this post is all about.

The graphic above is a couple of different ways to view the “Pursuit of Happiness” phrase in our Constitution. We are not guaranteed happiness but our right to pursue it should not be stifled by our government. That’s good and fine, but what is happiness? That is what this post is all about.

According to a recent New York Times piece about one-third of all food produced and packaged for human consumption is wasted. That amounts to 1.3 billion tons per year or $680 billion. With about 10% of the world’s population chronically undernourished, that is shameful. Another way of looking at it is that the wasted food accounts for about 10% of green house gases.

It is amazing to me how many people who are socially tied to a particular religious organization and are either willfully ignorant of their church’s doctrine or just ignore it. I used to think that was a bad thing, but I have changed my mind. That is what this post is all about.

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t seem to simply sit down in front of my computer monitor and come up with ideas for posts here at RJsCorner. In the cold weather months I post daily here, so where do all the ideas come from? That is the topic of this post.

Prominent 11th century Christian Theologians: Aquinas, Ockham, Scotus

This post is about how religious institutions stubbornly cling to their doctrine. Religion ABSOLUTELY hate admitting they got it wrong. This post will look deeper into that and try to understand why they do that.

This post will introduce yet another series for the coming weeks and months. I am determined to push today’s politics to the back burner at RJsCorner and this new series will help accomplish that. Setting that up is what this post is all about.
