Essays

These are various essays and/or musings that I have written at various points in time. They are probably not all be structured enough to be essays; I don't really know what counts as an essay and what not. A lot of them have to do with Christianity, although there are ones on other things too.

Stuff I have added when working on this site is in italics.

Miscellaneous

I found this one sitting around. I don't think anyone has seen it before.

Luther Tatler

I wrote these in high school for the school newspaper (the Luther Tatler, whatever that means). The first one was because a friend of mine was the editor, and she needed another article to fill up a page. After that, it just kept happening.

These are in chronological order. The oldest ones are at the top. I can do this here because I will not be adding any new ones.

  1. Logical Analysis
  2. Equality
  3. Chasing after the Wind
  4. Behold the Man
  5. To Stave Off the Long Dark Night
  6. Power and the Future
  7. The Will of the People
2007-2008
