Societal Issues

A deteriorating hippocampus brought my 36-year career in software development to a premature end. I choose to use my remaining time, energies, and abilities toward making this world a better place for my family, community, and society. I want to influence the choices we make, for the benefit of all.

Religious Philosophy of the Ancient Near East

I have been reading, studying, and taking courses covering earliest Christianity, Judaism, and religious and philosophical thought of the Ancient Near East (ANE). By this process, I have learned a lot about what the Bible texts meant to their authors and their direct audiences. Much of my writing is directed at expressing, explaining, and supporting those meanings as I understand them. Some of these writings are presented here. These writings are © 2016 Frank Nemec unless otherwise noted.
