The One or Soulmates Myth

Of all the irritating fluffy pseudo-psychology or pseudo-philosophy myths out there, this one takes the cake. People who say they don’t believe in religion still think that the “universe” has given them one person. If you believe in evolution as most people say they do, how in tarnation could you possibly believe a random universe… Continue reading The One or Soulmates Myth

Love at First Sight Myth

The “love at first sight” love is Eros or at least the beginning of it. Of course you can have instant sexual attraction and euphoria, certainly that can be a part of true love, but just because you have instant sexual attraction for someone doesn’t automatically mean it will turn into love. So I don’t… Continue reading Love at First Sight Myth

Types of Love

I think a lot of romance myths (The One/Soulmates Myth, The Love at First Sight Myth, Falling In or Out of Love Myth) spring from a superficial definition of love. I think its useful to use the ancient Greek words for love since two in particular I learned as part of New Testament* understanding in… Continue reading Types of Love

Bookish Sites and Such

Every so often I look for Goodreads alternatives, if I knew they’ve been owned by Amazon for 8 years, I’d forgotten, that explains the monopoly. Their export option messes up read dates and doesn’t track rereads and doesn’t have enough data. In frustration I found the spreadsheet I mentioned in this post. But I’ve not… Continue reading Bookish Sites and Such

What I Read: August 2021

I read a lot, but not necessarily well, I wasn’t thrilled with a lot of my fiction, however, I think it again helped me to think about my fiction. And the two non-fiction books I read were EXCELLENT! Nonfiction Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World – and Why Things Are Better Than You… Continue reading What I Read: August 2021

PSA

Hello, please bear with my site changes. WordPress is infuriating and somehow I managed to get my siteground hosted WordPress (.org) product mixed in with my free wordpress.com account (which I use to follow blogs), which considering how everything is scrambled, isn’t that surprising. So I just deleted my WordPress.com account. Anyway, I’m trying to… Continue reading PSA

The Mid-Year Book Freak-Out Tag

I found this tag here on Maribeth’s blog. I’m going to try to exclude rereads from this mostly. I’m afraid I can’t keep duplicate answers off though.   Best book you’ve read so far in 2021 The best fiction is Gerald Durrell’s Corfu trilogy (the essence of summer in a set of books). And the… Continue reading The Mid-Year Book Freak-Out Tag
