I'm currently a grad student working on my PhD in Robotics at GA Tech. I got my masters in Electrical Engineering and my bachelors in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on robotics at Missouri University of Science and Technology (known as University of Missouri - Rolla until January 2008), but I have a wide variety of interests that I actively pursue. I enjoy birdwatching in my spare time and my photography and painting is an attempt to capture the beautiful detail that I see in God's creation while I am out trekking around. My website, usually in need of updating, can be found at www.adam-nisbett.com. Our family blog (with random accounts and pictures by various members of the family) is at www.nisbett.blogspot.com.
and too many others to think of right now.
Mostly Classical music. Favorites include but are not limited to the following:
1812 Overture - Tchaikovsky
Appalachian Spring Suite - Copeland
Peer Gynt Suite - Grieg
Pathetique Sonata - Beethoven
Toccata in D minor - Bach
and almost anything performed by Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops.

Very good point. I agree. I do tend to actually like reading theological type of books (though I don't usually finish the whole thing) - not necessarily commentaries so much though... I was just wondering about the overall effect they have. But I think you're right... we can come up with flawed ideas all on our own. I guess that in one sense, it can be beneficial then to hear others' opinions because then we can see different ways of looking at it, and figure out if the way we look at it is correct, and see what views actually match up with the Bible.
Thanks for the blog post' wow you sound like you enjoy math! I didn't figuer it out (well I didn't even try lol) but it was fun to ask others, like my bro (James) cuz he won't stop thinking of a problem until he figures it out, it was fun to watch him do.
Blog comment reply: thanks for the link I will put it on the reading list.
I agree with your points so much and I feel we are seeing this war being raged on the church over the last years because of it. Keep the Christians from seeing truth like the world and they will just go along with it all like the world. I think I am going to do a blog post on that next.
Re: blog comment. Thanks for commenting! Reacting well to emergencies and new situations is very impressive, I agree.
Maybe it is wisdom I was describing more than smartness...I just use the word smart more than I use the word wise. Maybe it's the best kind of smartness?
Re: blog comment. Thanks for commenting! Nice to meet another Texan.
Yep, that's the classic definition of where home is...where your friends and family are. Someday I mean to visit Missouri just to see how many homeschoolers there really are there....it seems to have such a high HS population compared to other states!
Well, I don't know... I'm still grieving the loss of Rory. :'( Honestly, I've sort of lost interest in continuing with the series now...I'm sure we'll get back to it, but it's just going to take some time to get over this tragedy . . .
