Slow Start: Outline of future topics I intend to write about

I'm off to a slow start, it seems, so I figure I would do a non-blog post to highlight what I've got in mind for the near future.

Here is a list of the next 12 topics I'm considering blogging (in a somewhat loosely linear method).

1. The Kalam Cosmological Argument and Argument from Necessity
2. Epicurus' Riddle
3. What Are Scientists Saying About Whether the Universe is Eternal or Had a Beginning?
4. A Preliminary Foray Into Relativism
5. An Outline of Origins Beliefs Held by People Through the Ages
6. Is the Bible a Trustworthy, Reliable Document?
7. Comparison of Religious Texts versus the Bible: Test Your Credulity Factor
8. Time to Introduce Myself: What Did I Believe, When, Why, and How? An Assessment of My Objective Ability
9. Is it Possible to Scientifically Prove That God Exists?
10. Is it Possible to Logically Prove That God Exists?
11. The Bible's Answer to The Problem of Evil.
12. Does Evidence Make People Believe, or Do Their Beliefs Affect How They Interpret the Evidence?

For now, I'm just going to make a short post to say how excited I am about my personal "INDEX" (capitalized because it's going to be awesome) of absolutely everything surrounding the Origins Issue. I was inspired by the layout on the  Talk.Origins page, "Index to Creationist Claims," which, other than being very incomplete and heavy on straw men, is very conveniently arranged. I like organization (maybe because I'm so bad at organizing, so I have experience wanting to be organized), so I've begun creating my own index similar to Isaac's. I'll probably be posting some pages as blog posts later in the semester.

That's all for now!
