End of Adolescence

November 27th, 2018 | Posted by pftq in Thought of the Day | #

Except... on the 12th time, summer doesn't quite end.  It keeps going, no matter how long you wait. That feeling - when you're the only one still wandering the campus while everyone else had gone home - becomes your everyday.  And at some point, you look back and realize this is the rest of your life.

God's Image

So many say we're created in God's image, yet act more like the shadow that merely follows. We call Him the Creator, yet so few carry on the work of creating.

Advanced Alien Life is Tiny

March 19th, 2018 | Posted by pftq in Thought of the Day | #
If a few hours on a larger planet with higher gravity can be years on Earth, then any advanced alien life is most likely from a smaller planet with much lower gravity than us, where each year for us can be millions for them.
