Q:Hello! I just wanted to say I always enjoy reading your posts, and find you to be a very interesting and intriguing person. Also, I was curious as to what you plan on doing once you have finished attending Seminary if you don't mind sharing? Finally, I was wondering who is your favorite band and favorite show you have ever been to?
Well thanks! That’s very kind of you to say. After I finish seminary, I’m not sure what I’m going to do. At this point, I’ll probably be applying for Phd programs. Though the church I’m interning at now is in a network of churches and they may ask me to help out at a church plant when I graduate, so I may do that. Or maybe I’ll do both. Or maybe I’ll get hit by a car and die. I don’t know.
As far as my favorite band, it’s always changing. Right now, I’d say it’s this band called Nails. Historically it’s been Impending Doom and they will always have a place in my top 10. I’m also really digging Those Who Fear and Advent (rip) is also up there. My favorite show is a hard one to put my finger on because I’ve been to several hundred at this point haha. Cornerstone Festival in 2008 was pretty boss though. I also had a blast at This is Hardcore fest last weekend. Jimmy Ryan’s last show with Haste The Day back in 2005 was also awesome.
Don’t go to a church that looks like this…
Q:'natural resting scowl' lol. that would make you a bad greeter in church.
No one in their right mind would ever task me with being a greeter at Church.
Atheism is a strange thing. Even the devils never fell into that vice.
Q:Would you every consider, or have you ever been asked, to be a contributor to a blog or similar project?
This is what my weekend was like.
Also, this band is called Nails and they were seriously perfect.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Yes, however, whatever evidence is considered to pertain or not depends upon your philosophy of evidence, that is, your epistemology. And such epistemological commitments should not be held arbitrarily or without consideration.
Q:You're not intimidating, you're confident. We live in a world where confidence and arrogance are confused and people just don't know how to handle it when someone actually has confidence.
I think I am pretty confident, but I also have a pretty imposing frame and I’ve been described as having a “silent intensity” about me. Match that with a pretty expressionless face that tends to have a natural resting scowl and I think I do come off as intimidating to a lot of people.
I do think you are correct in your analysis though.
Q:Maybe one day we will be good friends then. :)
Maybe…. one day.
