I was informed this morning that since the universe is very old and our lives are very short in comparison, our lives are meaningless. Read more

Today I reflect a little on the thing that draws me to H. P. Lovecraft, his aesthetic: Cosmicism. This is a little excerpt of something that will be published by Scenes Media in the near future. (When it is, you’ll be among the first to know!) What is cosmicism? Summed up briefly, Cosmicism is based on the idea that humanism is an illusion. Human consciousness, human civilization, humane values, and all the rest, add up to a bubble that surrounds us… Read more

When it comes to recovering the household economy I feel like a voice in the wilderness at times. The wilderness is a lonely place. That’s why it is great to find someone else out there with you. It is especially so when you find that your companion is saying some of the same things you are. I don’t know why it took me so long to discover John Cuddeback’s blog, Bacon from Acorns, but I’m glad I have. John is… Read more

In many ways my life is a rags-to-riches story. I was thinking about this recently because I was working on the bio for my author website. The opening line of the bio there reads: C. R. Wiley’s childhood was like something out of a story by Roald Dahl. It was full of vacancies, like AWOL parents and school truancy. He was a ward of the state for a time.

It’s propaganda, but there is more Elmer Gantry than Goebbels to it. Rev. Gore has delivered an End Times sermon, complete with charts and an altar call.

Even so, I was invited to a private screening of Al Gore’s new documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel. I’m sorry to say I don’t feel any closer… Read more

I was interviewed by my old friend John Zmirak for The Eric Metaxas Show. John and I discuss my book, Man of the House. The conversation is fairly free-ranging. But I think you get the gist of what the book is about. Here’s the link to the interview on Sound Cloud: — If you’d like to know more about my latest book before shelling out your hard-earned money for it, Wipf and Stock, the publisher of my book, Man of the House,… Read more

This has been a remarkably busy summer for me personally. Lot’s of milestones for the kids, and on top of my other responsibilities, I’ve not been able to post as frequently at Patheos as I would like to. But amid the busyness, I’ve been receiving requests to appear in different venues. If you’re interested in tuning in to hear me interviewed about my latest book, Man of the House–or you would actually like to attend an event where I will… Read more

Misogyny appears to have come to mean “treating women as though they are women”. Read more

You may not like my advice. But if you have better advice, there are a lot of women out there with eggs in a freezer who’d like to hear it. Read more
