Friends, I am one of the Christians that:
Hate religious intolerance and religious bigotry.
Sympathize, though not subscribe to their Ultimate Truth claim of, other religions ideas.
Agree to current science diagnostic that Global Warming is caused by Human Activities.
I love technology, engineering and my capacity to reasoning and thinking. I cherish these gifts that God give to me and they are glorifying God.
I love the world God created ( the natural world, not many the things man made ).
I think learning is good just because for the sake of the learning itself; and life long learning is my obvious default mod.
I pray to The Lord that He will guide me and teach me, give me courage and wisdom to help myself and others.
( as I am learning and growing, more maybe be added at david-adam.me )
The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, the British government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what I’ll be known as Euro English ( Euro for short ).

It is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking accumulation of mental and emotional garbage; frenzied and joyless grabs for happiness; trinket gods; magic-show religion; paranoid loneliness; cutthroat competition; all-consuming-yet-never-satisfied wants; a brutal temper; an impotence to love or be loved; divided homes and divided lives; small-minded and lopsided pursuits; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; uncontrolled and uncontrollable addictions; ugly parodies of community. I could go on…
The day you graduated from school, there is one thought: how little they actually taught me for almost 18 years! And this realization will be more and more clearer throughout the course of the rest of your life.
