Dialogues of Nodin and William
|Natural Laws - Accuracy in logic requires that there first exists a fixed point of reference to base all reasoning. The only possible fixed point is Creation itself. 2007, 2008
|Observation - Without first-hand observation, all logic must rely on a faulty imagination. Correct observation requires more than a visual glance. 2007, 2008
|Firsts - Which came first, man-made things or Nature? Most people have difficulty answering that question correctly. 2007, 2008
|Intelligence Versus IQ - IQ and intelligence are not synonymous. IQ tests cannot accurately measure real-world intelligence. 2007, 2008
|Mind of Prodigies - It is not possible for the non-prodigious mind to comprehend the thoughts of the prodigious mind. It is also illogical for non-prodigies to write biographies about prodigies. 2007, 2008
|Religion - Is religiosity the act of faith in an unknown? Disbelief in a religion, without first observing the religion through first-hand experience, is religiosity. February 3, 2008
|Right and Wrong - Schools teach children that there is no right or wrong. Natural laws declare otherwise. March 13, 2008
|Science - Inquisitiveness and observation are actions; verbs. Placing a noun upon a verb creates a false deity. March 14, 2008
|The Scientist - He who can, does. He who cannot, believes. March 17, 2008
|The Mystic - The eye of the needle of science is not the only passage to knowledge. March 21, 2008
|Inward Natures - External observations cannot measure internal natures. Man cannot know the nature of anything, but a small portion of himself. March 24, 2008
|Origins of Myths - Though two things may have similarities, the similarities do not dictate sameness of origin. April 08, 2008
|The Monk - It is the man who walks a path; the color of robe has no relevance. April 08, 2008
|External Behaviors - He who walks many paths, has a many-colored robe, but the soul is not the robe. November 14, 2008
