I am a lucky man.

I have a wife that is way better looking than I am.  She is genuine, honest, trustworthy, and to top it all off understanding as well. Basically, she must have done something wrong in a former life to get stuck with me! We also have two beautiful and healthy daughters. We have a roof over our heads, and get to decide every day what we would like to eat at any meal.

I am ridiculously blessed.

I’ve had some pretty cool jobs in my time (one that has brought me a small amount of infamy), but as of right now most of my time is spent studying and reading books by dead people. My undergrad is in Religion and Theology with an Emphasis On Biblical Studies and a minor in Biblical Languages (Greek and Hebrew) from TUC. It may take two diplomas to make that fit.

Currently, I have completed my graduate work for an MA in Biblical Studies at Trinity Western University, and I only need to defend my thesis to complete the program. Because of my schooling every once in awhile I actually know what I am writing about, but usually I can just fake it pretty good!

I like hiking with my family, reading, video games, cooking, writing, golf, NFL, and music — except country music because clearly Nashville will be the locus of the Antichrist and his message is already going forth in the medium of country music.

In my spare time I like ranting or writing silly articles for you guys. However, the best part is getting to know some of you and reading your comments. There is nothing better than writing something funny or insightful (well, at least attempting to be insightful) and a reader makes a comment that is way funnier or much more insightful. It makes it all worthwhile.

I live in Edmonton, AB, Canada. I’m still not sure if that is a good or bad thing.

Be good to each other.

Oh, and for those wondering: Scotteriology is a play on the word soteriology.

    Stumbled upon your site while researching the whole “healer” scam…


    I find your site to be entertaining and refreshing… way to be real. Freedom from religion is relatively new for me.

    Oh, and I have a Hebrew tattoo (circa 2004) which I quite enjoy:). It’s supposed to say “living sacrifice” but a literal rendering of the words is more like alive/fresh raw meat. Yum. NT words in OT language forever etched on my ankle… why didn’t I think of something more clever (loins…?)??

    Thanks for blogging. I have a new site to add to the favorites.

    You have a tattoo that reads “Fresh Meat”? So many places I could go with that!

    Glad you like. Thanks.

    I have to say, your banner image says more than some people’s entire blog.

    what is the point of the banner image at the top of the page? What are you trying to get across with that?

  5. October 28, 2008 7:52 pm

    They are many of the images that have appeared in different posts at Scotteriology

    HA! I too was a Hockey Goaltender… Midget hockey, but still… I too attended theological school in Edmonton, the former Northwest Bible College. After 24 years of Evangelical whackery, I’m now an agnostic. I look forward to your attempt to connvert me… LOL

    Love your blog. You take on many sacred cows with wit and insight. Good work. BTW, I can see Chilliwack from my house in Squamish…)

    stumbled upon your site while looking for images of all things. While looking, I found your Hermeneutics video’s, I laughed so hard I sent an echo through the church. I love your blogs and find them quite enjoyable. I will bookmark this page and try to read more of them when I have time.

    Scott, you’re at TWU???

    Langley? Cloverdale? Fort Langley? Abbottsford?

    My wife and I are at CANIL.

  10. June 2, 2009 8:01 am

    Yep. At TWU… though the faculty there may deny that after finding this blog.

    CANIL: nice.

    Blessings to you and your wife. Cheers.

    I have been following your blog for about a month now and I must say it is at least my second favorite (barely edged out by Nick Norelli)! Anyway, I have laughed out loud more than a few times reading some of your posts. Keep up the good work!

    It is interesting to see how the fringe thinks, if that is not using too strong a word.

    Love, love, love your header picture! Fantastic!

    And, I like your blog, too. Ya know, I really admire a man who will admit that his wife is better looking than him.

    The online Evil Finder will ‘prove’ the numerological significance of anything, e.g. “William H Gates III


    W I L L I A M H G A T E S I I I
    23 9 12 12 9 1 13 8 7 1 20 5 19 9 9 9 <- letter numbers
    5 9 3 3 9 1 4 8 7 1 2 5 1 9 9 9 <- all digits added
    \_____________/ \_____________/ \_____________/ \_____________/
    2 4 6 1 <- final sum

    It is evident that "william h gates iii" is symbolized by 2461.

    Multiply the value by 6 – the smallest perfect number. You get 14766.
    Divide by 69 – the symbol of sinful perversion. The result is 214.
    Write the number backwards, subtract 79 – the year Vesuvius erupted and destroyed Pompeii. The value is now 333.
    Subtract 13 – the symbol of bad luck. This gives you 320.
    Add 1666, the year of the Great London Fire – you will get 1986.
    This number is the year of the Chernobyl disaster.
    Numbers don’t lie.

    I feel the same way about my wife, and I don’t even believe in past lives.

    Found your website when I was searching for some material on Bill Hybel. I am guessing that you are not his favorite Blog to read.

    I consider myself pretty open minded, and like you, believe that there are a lot of churhes and pastors out their that are putting out some pretty crazy and confusing messages. Consequently, I found your website a bit educational. I guess that I like to have my beliefs and views challenged to make sure I know what I really stand for.

    All that aside, I have one concern with your blog. You attack a lot of people and material, yet for all my reading, I can not find anything on your website that states what your actual beliefs are.

    I think it would be very interesting to read your personal statement of faith. I imagine that you have had to write one somewhere in your quest for a Masters in Theology.

    Thanks for your time,

    Scott: Very good, thoughtful, humorous, all-around interesting blog. Write on!
    Best to you, Lilly (aka Puny Human)
