My Dad


Dec 15

Posted: under Non-Creation Blogs.

As many of you know, my dad came to live with my family in September of 2007.  He had late stage Alzheimers, and eventually we were unable to care for him, and he moved into a nursing home.  He passed away in his sleep on 4 December 2008.  Fortunately, he knew the Lord, and I will see him again.

This past year has been tough on my family, and it has also taken a toll on the website ministry.  I hope to eventually increase my time working on the website.  Thank you all for your prayers over the last year.

Changes to Online Geology Curriculum


Oct 18

     Due to the number of people accessing the free online Geology Curriculum, I’ve made some changes to the program so that it will be easier for me to manage.  In the past, I required students to be registered in the test database (to access the tests).  That way, I could keep up with who and how many people were using the curriculum.  Now, I am not requiring registration to access the tests.  All I ask for is a courtesy email letting me know that you will be using it.  I will still have an idea of how many people are using it via the testing program that I use.   Currently, the quiz/test program is being accessed about 800 times per month.

Update on my Father, website


Oct 17

As many of you know, last year my father, who has Alzheimer’s, came to live with my family. At nearly the same time, I started working a new job, working 6 days a week as a mailman. As a result, I have not spent much time on the website the last year. Earlier this year, my father moved into an assisted living facility, and all is going well with him. Thank you all for your prayers.
The postal job, however, kept me from spending much time on the website. Now that I have been doing this for over a year, I have grown accustomed to it, and I plan to spend more time on the website. This blog is one step towards that goal. The blog will keep people up to date, without taking too much of my time.
My goal is to eventually work full time on the website. Considering the amount of false information that is out there, there is so much that needs to be done. Until then, I’ll keep chipping away little by little. Again, thank you for your prayers for my father, and for the website. God Bless You All.

Fixing the US Healthcare System


Oct 14

There is much talk about fixing our healthcare system here in the US.  I don’t know which Presidential candidates’ plan will work better, but I do have a suggestion for them and our country’s leadership that will go a long way towards helping to fix our system…and at the same time, it will lower the cost that we pay for gasoline.

One of the largest expenditures on healthcare is the result of a suicidal activity.  This suicidal activity should be made illegal, and it will cut costs to the US healthcare system by up to 12 percent.  Of course, I’m talking about tobacco use.  I propose that we gradually phase out tobacco production and smoking over a four year period.  This would give people a chance to adjust, and give the farmers and industry time to convert their fields/facilities.  Convert them to what?  The production of corn for ethanol, to be used to produce E85 fuel, and to be added to gasoline that can be sold as 10 percent ethanol or E-85 fuel.

Healthcare coverage for smokers would continue after the end of the four year period, say, for a period of 6 more years.  After that point, healthcare for anyone who illegally smokes will not be covered under insurance, and they will have to pay out of pocket.

This plan would make us a much healthier country, would eliminate a large chunk of healthcare expenditures, and bring fuel prices down.

Presidential Election


Oct 14

Overall, I’m not too thrilled with either presidential candidate.  In both cases, I prefer the vice presidential candidates over the presidential candidates. 

Democrats – There are some issues that Obama has that I really like, such as taxing overseas companies.  And between the two candidates, his health care plan is better.  However, there are many unknowns with him.  Where does he stand on homeschooling?  What about his liberal background?  However, I do trust Biden a lot more than Obama.  Too bad their roles are not reversed.  Biden is a friend to Amtrak, and as a railfan, I like it that Amtrak will probably not have any funding problems if he is vice president.

Republicans – I like McCain since he is a veteran.  I have great reluctance to vote for anyone without military experience.  However, McCain’s healthcare plan does not appear to be very good.  And his history of outsourcing government jobs could put my own job in jeapordy.  He is an outspoken critic of Amtrak, and if he is elected, you better take a cross-country train ride before Amtrak has to shut down their long-distance trains.  On the positive side, his VP pick is a good one, with great Christian conservative values.  The main reason to consider McCain is Palin.  With McCain’s age, Palin could very well end up as President, which is fine with me.  Many complain that she doesnt’ have much experience, but she would surround herself with experienced people, and she would take issues to the Lord in prayer.  I would feel comfortable with her as President.

Who am I voting for?  You will have to guess.  I can say I’m voting for neither of the Presidential candidates (McCain/Obama).  I’m voting mainly on my feelings about the Vice-Presidential candidates.

Initial Entry

Welcome the the new Answers In Creation Blog.  Due to the time contraints on my life, I hope to be able to update this blog more frequently than I do the main website.  I’ll give quick reflections on articles posted on young earth websites, and on other items as they cross my mind.  I’ll also have a category for my personal thoughts…things that have nothing to do with creation science.  I hope that the readers of Answers In Creation (now close to 30,000 per month) will find this blog useful

Comments will be allowed initially.  In the past, the discussion board that I had was abused.  As long as the comments are relavent and clean, comments will be a part of this blog.
