I am a single Christian girl who’se mind is always racing to understand more: I want to wrap my little head around God and religion (the two are not always as compatible as some may think) and science and objective truth and other world views and my country(South Africa)’s people and philosophy and art and literature and values and apologetics and laughter and love and whatever. Sometimes my ideas may be unorthodox. Sometimes they change.
Some people try to learn a lot about one subject. Then they learn more and more about less and less untill they know everything about nothing. I am the sort of girl who look at many subjects. I learn less and less about more and more- soon I’ll reach the state of knowing nothing about everything.

You may wonder about when reading some of my recent entries: Do I believe in Biblical gender roles, or not?
The Bible has some gender roles, and much more material meant for both sexes. Some things that humans call Biblical gender roles are not Biblical gender roles. Counterfeit money is not real money, and no reason to reject the real. Similarly, man-made alleged Biblical gender roles are not Biblical gender roles, and no reason to reject the real ones.
And what is my take on feminism? When women are treated unjustly, I support their rights. When men are treated unjustly, I support their rights. It would seem to me that unjust laws are more often aimed at men these days, in both the western world and my own country, and that there is very often reason to defend men’s rights. On the other hand, women are blamed quite often, on conservative blogs, for things that is the fault of both sexes. That gives reasons to defend women in the blogosphere.
