This page will require frequent updates as I believe it is important to keep learning. We can never be content in thinking that we’ve learned all we can learn and thus close our minds to new information, which may or may not alter our understandings and conclusions about things. So, I’m listing these resources in order to demonstrate that I don’t just pluck my views from thin air. Rather, they come from very real and substantive study. I also provide the list as a resource for your own further study, if interested.
