Heart Work (Left Chamber)

I hate the phrase "1% Inspiration/99% Perspiration." I understand it, and I don't disagree with it in principle, but too many people assign the wrong values to its numbers.

Don’t Talk To Me About Life

Kindred Fudges Counting

Today in Kindred's Garden of Mystery, we learn all about belief systems. "creation is not a belief system since using real science proves creation hands down and its evolution that is a religion thru blind faith" I have to give Bobby a little credit here. Normally, when theists try the whole "evolution/science is just a… Continue reading Kindred Fudges Counting
