Another fun thing I thought to do was to list my top 10 music albums. Be warned, this will be showing my age (or lack thereof, depending on how old you are…). The Essential Michael Jackson (Michael Jackson). In my first year of uni I picked this up for a cheap $13 at a retail […]Read More My Top 10 Music Albums.
You don’t need to be told that there is a lot of shit going on in the world right now. A global pandemic, rioting and widespread socio-economic disruption just to name a few… But at 1pm today, it was announced that there are no known active cases of Covid-19 left in New Zealand. Also, it […]Read More NZ is now officially COVID-19 free!
I do not discuss my hobbies on here often, except for my hiking adventures from time to time. But with all the negativity going on in the world right now, I thought I would do something different. One of my favourite hobbies, since I was a young one, was playing video games. I still play […]Read More My Top 10 Video Games.
A few weeks ago it was Easter, normally a time of celebration for Christians, and a time to enjoy some extra days off work for almost everyone else. Where did you go this Easter? Nowhere? Ha! Me too. Well, unless you’re in a country which doesn’t have Covid-19 right now, then good for you. When […]Read More The Great Sacrifice.

Yet in the Old Testament of the Bible, people did just that. Enter the story of Jacob and Esau. Jacob and Esau are sons […]Read More Is it possible to fool God?
I have been living in Wellington for nearly 6 months now, yet I haven’t written about any of my hiking adventures. How shocking! Rest assured; I have done plenty of walking since then. It’s time to change that. At 468 metres, Colonial Knob is one of the highest hills in Wellington. It offers gorgeous views […]Read More A good Wellington hike to do.
I often hear from Christians that [person X] has a PhD and is really smart, and that they also happen to believe in a God/higher power. People such as Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein are often thrown into the mix. This is used to try and lend more credibility to their fanciful, often absurd beliefs. […]Read More … but intelligent people believe in God.
Like many countries around the world, we are in lockdown in New Zealand. That means everything is closed except for workplaces classed as ‘essential services’. Being involved in food safety testing, I still must work though, and I don’t have the luxury to work at home. Recently though, I started to get ‘cold like’ symptoms. […]Read More I got tested for Covid-19.
Recently I noticed that a few of my Christian friends had put pictures of babies on their Facebook profiles, with the caption ‘Both Lives Matter’. The implication being, of course, that to have an abortion was on par with killing your child. What was the deal with all this? As it turns out, an act […]Read More Your body your choice?
Ah so much has changed in the space of only ten days in New Zealand. Ten days ago we only had 6 cases of Coronavirus, and they were all linked to overseas travel. Back then, the government implemented bans on large public gatherings greater than 500 people. The idea that we should go into lockdown […]Read More Going into lock down.
