First blog

The time has come for me to blog.  I’ve avoided it for quite some time, but my thoughts and opinions on various matters (some important, some not-so-important) are now itching to get out. 

I consider myself to be pretty conservative.  In many ways, I’m a typical Texan.  I was born and raised in the Houston area to fairly conservative, Christian parents (though my father is somewhat of a reformed hippie).  I’ve always been rather opinionated and have always enjoyed expressing myself through writing.  However, I avoided the blogging world for many reasons, primarily due to the issue of privacy (i.e., do I really want my private thoughts read by strangers in cyberspace?).  That is, until I came across the following:

 Expelled–Ben Stein’s quest to debunk what he calls “Big Science”

I guess some might call  me confused.  To sum up some of my beliefs (some of which are not static, mind you), I’m a conservative Christian with a degree in Biology who sees no problem in using and accepting current scientific theories (as in, evolution) and adhering to a system of faith.  As a high school Biology teacher, I also have a strong interest in the state of education in America, especially regarding the teaching of science.

Strange to some, I’m sure.  I’ll admit that my primary reason for starting this blog is purely selfish–I tend to think more clearly by writing things down, and I hope that by writing this blog I’ll be able to settle some of my own unresolved beliefs/opinions/issues that bother me or that I don’t have a clear stance on.  It is my secondary hope that others may find this useful, educational, or at least mildly amusing. 

 So read along if you so choose!  Happy blogging to you!

    ATN,
    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I hope to visit yours periodically. I am at work right now, but just skimming through your blog real quick, I think we are going to get along great. I too am a Christian but have no problems using and accepting things such as evolution.

    I have much more to say about the subject. But, that is for another day, I suppose. I’d be happy to add you to my blogroll though – with your permission, of course.

  3. Thanks for the comment. I just watched the healthcare youtube video on your blog. That was great!

    Feel free to add me to your blogroll. I’ve added you to mine if that’s ok.
