Oh My Goodness.

During one of my adventures into downtown Baltimoren one afternoon, I saw something utterly disgusting. I saw someone taking a shit right next to a building. This spot that was designated as a good shitting spot was very open. Much pf the publice could see it.

Now the person who did this was homeless. I understand that. But there was a McDonalds up the street where he could have used the bathroom. Even thoug he is homeless, there is a sense of dignity and appropriateness you must have. This subject may seem a little gross but I just couldn't believe that it happened.

Just Curious

I wonder if people read my blog. I have been surfing through other people's blog and I was just wondering. Rarely are there responses for any of my entries. Is there someone who reads this blog regularly? Is there anyone who reads it period?? Just curious.

Doubts Part 2

I have been thinking again. I recently had a conversation with an old friend. My friend attends church on a regular basis. I do not. Somehow we got on the subject of religion. She was talking about how strong her faith is and all. I told her I am questioning not just my faith, but faith in general.

Now I am not saying that I am going to become an atheist and all. I just have questions and these keep coming up. How can atheist be so sure that there is no God or gods? How can Christians, Buddhists and so on be so sure that what they are studying is the true path?? How can evolution account for us having feelings and emotions, religion?? Could it be possible that evolution only accounts for a small part of how the world came to be? Can evolution be God's tool?? I fear that I will spend my whole life dedicated to a religion just find out it was wrong. I am afraid to do that. My friend told me that I think too much. I try to make everything fit into a logical box and that life and faith does not fit into the logic box. To me, I cannot blindly accept something without proof. I need proof about whether God does or does not exist.

I have also been thinking about my path in life. I know what I want to do. I want to be an archaeologist who is remembered until the field of archaeology doesn't exist. I have to be the best because since I am Black, being good or great just does not cut it in this world. What I am talking about is my personal life. Will get married and have a family?? How do I reconcile that with my desire to travel and see the world? I know that there are very few women who will put up with a husband that travels all the time. I hope to leave a legacy in this world thorugh having children but I do not now how strong that desire is if I had to choose between a family or a career. These ae just some of the thoughts that are running through my head.
