I have three major goals: Like C. S. Lewis, I hope to write
beautiful Christian fiction; like Thomas Aquinas, I'm working on a
careful metaphysical view of the world; and with God's help, I
intend one day to be a strong and loving father.
Jobwise, I've finished a Master's in theology from Duke University,
and I'm one year away from finishing PhD in philosophy from UT
Austin. The Ph.D. is the qualification for being a college
professor. In the meantime, my work is research and part-time
assisting with a college course.
Here's an example of a poem of mine:
"The Second Law of Thermodynamics"
A note within a symphony,
A word with a page.
A day within a calendar,
An hour in an age.
The finite in infinity,
A star within the sky,
One moment in eternity
To live --- and then to die.
And so will all humanity
But perish in the wind.
His history will be forgot
And never known again
If life is but biology
Or God is but a meme,
If man seeks to beget himself
And serves no greater theme.
The curtains fall. The stars burn out.
No eulogy is read.
We actors leave an empty stage:
The universe is dead.
