While the millionaire crybabies in the NFL are “bravely” sitting out the national anthem in protest, a young boy with severe injuries is doing everything in his power to stand up during the Star Spangled Banner. [Read more…]
He should be in fourth grade, but 9-year-old William Maillis has already graduated high school and has started his first year in college and I love the reason why he wants to become an astrophysicist.
William wants to prove God’s existence.
According to Yahoo! News, he’s already started on several theories on how the Earth was created. For now, William is enrolled in a community college in Pennsylvania but hopes to enroll at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh next fall.
The boy’s father is a Greek Orthodox priest, and his faith is why he wants to become an astrophysicist to improve upon the ideas of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. In this young man’s mind, there’s no way our intricate universe came from nothing:
“I want to prove to everybody that God does exist.”
“I just want him to appreciate the gift he has, which I think he does,” William’s father said. “I tell him, ‘God gave you a gift. The worst thing would be to reject that gift and not use it for the betterment of the world.’ ”
I love that William is taking his faith to the field of science. We need more like him. Yes, it’s great that he could do trigonometry by the time he was 7 or that he can now sit in a college class and not have to take notes like everybody else because he just soaks it up by listening, but his real purpose is to prove his faith in God, and that’s most impressive of all.
This Missouri Senate Candidate’s Has One of the Most Impressive Campaign Commercials of This Election Year
Campaign ads are often cheesy, nasty, or just plain boring. But a Missouri Senate Candidate, Jason Kander, let his actions speak for themselves in his latest campaign ad.
And I was totally impressed!
Jason Kander, an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan, released a new advertisement last week in which he assembled a rifle in less than 30 seconds — blindfolded.
“Sen. Blunt has been attacking me on guns. Well, in the Army, I learned how to use and respect my rifle,” Kander said, adding that while serving in the state legislature, he also “supported Second Amendment rights.”
At the conclusion of his ad, with the rifle assembled, Kander removed his blindfold and issued a challenge: “I approve this message because I’d like to see Sen. Blunt do this.”
Although I may not agree with all of his politics, as he is running as a Democrat, or even agree with all of his stances on gun control, I was totally blown away with Kander’s skills in this ad.
