What is "the middle way", really?

The politics of the last 8 years has, to a large extent, reflected a kind of desperation combined with ideological hubris. The desperation is a natural product of improvident economic policies (resulting in the credit crunch of 2007/2008) and improvident diplomatic/military policies (resulting in destabilizing several areas of the world). The ideological hubris is largely a cultural artifact of desperate times and intellectual and moral drift.

Godly vs. Ungodly Communism

The early Christian community evidently practiced a form of communism. The book of Acts testifies to this.

Swimming the Rapids

Argument:
I will be standing there in front of you on the rock in Horeb.
Strike the rock, and the water will flow from it for the people to drink. [Ex 17:6]

Once more he measured off a thousand,
but there was now a river through which I could not wade;
for the water had risen so high
it had become a river that could not be crossed except by swimming. [Ez 47:5]

Master of Creation

Master of Creation

Let there be light!

  He is the Master of the urim and thummim, and Moses' curious bush;
  Master of Einstein's dice, and the fate of Schroedinger's cat.
  He is the Master of past, present and future,
     who sees all, knows all and touches all.
  He who illumines the tiniest barbule of the tiniest wren,
     and who invented the mathematics of reality,
     can also find the Lorenzian butterfly's optimal control point
  and turn the storms of history toward a golden path.
