'IT'S A MIRACLE, DAMMIT'

by Neil Meyers Arts and Entertainment, Self Improvement, Book Reviews, Writing and Speaking
For more blog postings go to: https://digitalbloggers.com/articles/elysiumspassage For the topic of miracles, I have chosen an imaginary depiction of the atom. What greater evidence could there be for miracles than the invisible subatomic world, the substratum for our supposed material reality.  The topic of miracles is both fascinating and challenging since it goes contrary to our secular Western culture that tends to dismiss anything that claims to transcend materialist presuppositions. The orientation is: I'll believe it when I see it, rather than I ...

My dream experience had a similar quality to it: the most provocative interpretative expression of my life up to that point, including ...

Indeed, the religious dogma of all faiths was a massive smokescreen proliferated by the same elite families which now reside in a hell of their own imagining. ...

It is always pressed for time, as it chips the life away from you. As a single mother of three children working two jobs ...
