My view again

I believe in a loving and caring God who can do anything, but He usually chooses not to interfere. I voted evolution and creation because I BELIEVE (the most important word in English) that God created the Earth through evolution, and God explained Evolution through Creation. I BELIEVE, but I do not...

I believe Jesus died and was resurrected, but to understand, you'd have to define "resurrected".
Resurrected could mean he was remembered, etc.

Nuanced

True socialism is a very good reform, but destructive, hijacked socialism (that was present in the Soviet Republics and China) is just the opposite. In a society where class is not decided by anything but personal choice would be great! Government paying for the necessities of life would help millio...

Alright, taking a break from endless bickering about christianity. Do you think Islam is an inherently peaceful religion thats been hijacked by extremists, or a fundamentally violent religion? I am a Christian who believes in peace as Jesus' message. Mohammed had a similar message. Hearkening back ...

Sadly, yes

Stilson's taunting and subsequent death defined the instability he suffered from. He was haunted by the vision of Stilson at battle school, defining how he acted, how he thought, and what he turned into. The video should be carefully done, though. Stilson should only be seen bleeding as Ender walks ...

Actuary

So Jayelle, are you an actuary, or just slightly cynical?
Truth be told, my uncle used to be an actuary, and though he was good, he said that it was a weighing of the evidence more than anything.
Whether this is false modesty or not, I don't know.
Anybody have more knowledge?

Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged is a must buy on DVD. Even better, see it live at a local theater. It is a hilarious modification that squeezes all (37?) plays into an hour and a half. If you've read all the plays, you'll get a kick out of the parody, wordplay, and sheer wit of how i...

Minor Characters ARE Interesting

As I read the series again, they catch my eye. The way Card writes them, I am guessing, and reguessing, and am yearning for more on the characters. I not only read for enjoyment, but to sharpen my mind against the genius children of the series. More books would be wonderful.

I most certainly read the shadow series, albeit out of order. First (for me) was Shadow Puppets, then Shadow...Hegemon, and last Shadow...Giant. While Bean had respect, he didn't love his soldiers, and his soldiers didn't worship him. They respected him as a good general who didn't gamble their live...

Look Around

Look Around by the famous singer-songwriter Will Rogers. It laments the loss of nature on Earth. One reason Ender wanted to save Earth was because of the visit to nature Graff took him on. Also, there are several allusions later to the projects of desalinization in Africa, and restoring Earth to her...

In the "Shadow" series, there are short snips of what life is like for Han, Virlomi, Alai, among others, that I really enjoy.

Empathy counts

Everyone wants to have someone to talk to. Ender could feel sorry for them when they had a problem, while Bean dismissed them. If the Jeesh could have a vote of Bean as commander versus a bugger, they'd choose the latter. Also, the more dedicated the underlings are to a commander, the more likely th...
