The universe we live in is a certain way. I believe it is in my best interest to understand that way. I also believe that rational thought is the ultimate authority regarding truth claims. Try to argue with that and you will understand.

I am a retired Marine Corps infantry officer who spent 8 years on active duty and 17 in the reserves. I retired from the corporate world early in 2011. I read extensively and think a lot. I plan to continue my apologetic studies with Dr. Norman Geisler and spend more time writing and speaking.
