Things I wish I knew about sex and my body before it happened

I think I made it fairly of clear in the past that I lived with several families growing up. I was too young (what does that even mean) for the sex talk when I was raped by my step father. Too young to talk to about sex but not too young to be raped. I …

Colorblind

Some Jive About Truth

So I am about to watch a series of videos called Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution. It is a set of videos created by Dr. Jobe Martin, a dentist and former “Darwinist” turned creationist. I plan on writing up a detailed review of all three videos soon. My son, who loves anything having to do …
