In addition to doing a lot of thinking about these issues and subjects, I’ve also done extensive research and study over the years. This page will be ever-changing as I believe it is important to keep learning. We can never be content in thinking that we’ve learned all we can learn and thus close our minds to new information, which may or may not alter our understandings and conclusions about things. So, I’m listing these resources in order to demonstrate that I don’t just pluck my views from thin air. Rather, they come from very real and substantive study. I also provide the list as a resource for your own further study, if interested.
