MORE ABOUT ME…

My name is Tim Patterson. I am a husband, father, Southern Baptist Minister, and Network Administrator/Engineer. I currently work at North Greenville University in Tigerville, SC. Erin is my wife and Veronica my daughter is just something special. I like reading, discussing theology, photography, sports, and being a couch potato when time permits.

Why Apparent Contradictions?

I have based a large part of my life on the premise that two statements that contradict one another cannot both be true. I am also aware that I sometimes live a life that seems inconsistent with this belief. Often times this creates apparent contradictions. I am now inviting you to be apart of them.

Televised Abuse...

I am going to be sick.  Erin and I are finally watching this weeks ER (thanks God for the glory that is Tivo).  I have seen a lot of things on ER over the years.  The never ending attempts to escalate the story lines.  The merciless way they have killed off their characters (Gant and Green).  Tonight however as I watch the story unfold I saw something that made me shutter.  One of the characters was struggling with a difficult day and in a moment of rage throws her phone to the ground.  Normally this wouldn't bother me, but it was an iPhone.  How could someone take the greatest consumer electronic device ever made and treat it so carelessly?  I remember the only time I dropped mine and I was out of sorts the rest of the day.  I still look at the small ding in the upper left hand corner and wonder what might have been.

Oh my gosh, they just did it again!  How do these people sleep at night?

    I would be crying if it was a Palm Centro. Being an iPhone...I am sure it would be fine. :)

    It would have exploded into a mass of components if it were a Palm Centro. It survived because it was an iPhone. Remember I said "abuse" not murder.
