The Unbending Truth
God and The Octopus
Imagine you and a friend hiking a forest trail. You come to a crossroads and two signs greet you: Head North and you will reach the exit safely. Head South and certain danger and peril await.
The choice seems pretty clear, so you and your friend pull out a compass. Holding them out it is clear that both are pointing left. Unequivocally, the North side of each compass clearly direct to the safe path. But your friend has a thought…
Why Every Business Needs To Think About Design
Can one truly connect a mollusk sea creature to the existence of God? While it may seem a frivolous attempt, I believe the world of octopuses (apparently octopi, is incorrect) provides a beautiful picture of why our superiority as humans may be in question.
iPhone X: The Future Is Close
There’s a reason why you’re not using a Blackberry to check your email, or reading this post on your Palm Treo.
It’s the same reason why MySpace failed even though it was “first,” and why Google became a verb.
It’s why you won’t buy something from a shady looking website, and how you can tell a spam email from a real one.
The World Is Sick
Ten years. From its initial launch in 2007, we have seen ten major iterations of the iconic iPhone (not including the 5c and SE). This year, Apple has made a significant move to change how we think of the iPhone. I believe the simultaneous release of the familiar iPhone 8 and the new iPhone X is no coincidence. For many, getting a better phone without the learning curve and pain of slow-to-update apps for the iPhone X makes the 8 and 8 Plus the right choice for many iOS lovers.

Two nights ago, the deadliest shooting in United States history took place in Las Vegas. One man killed 59 people and injured 500 more. To call it a tragedy is an understatement.
For those grieving because they have lost a friend or family member, you are justified in feeling violated. Something was wrongfully taken, a human life. Yet even those of us who did not lose someone two nights ago, we have a powerful feeling deep inside:

Every worldview claims that your destiny is tied to your effort and ability. Judaism strives to follow every law in the Pentateuch.
Islam is based on how well you obey Allah, and even if you do everything you can your destiny is unsure. He may decide in the last moments that you are not fit for "heaven."
Hinduism is an eternal struggle to escape reincarnation, where you are constantly paying for the sins of a previous life. No one can answer what you were paying for in the first life though.
Buddhism asks you eliminate all desire so you can be free from suffering, ironically making non-desire your one desire.
And what about the atheist or agnostic?
