Interviewing a fellow of faith
Awesome to learn more about Scoot! He always brings joy to my Notes experience.
I've liked seeing Scoot on Notes, appreciated this interview. I agree with his purpose in regards to the outrage cycle. Most of it is stuff that doesn't have any real relevance to daily life.
Thank you, Mark and Scoot.
Scoot will always be Crambone to me.
Another great - and off-piste - interview! Fascinating. Thanks!
A fascinating read - thank you, Mark and Scoot. A great interview, as always! 😊
"We're trying to break the outrage cycle--when I feel myself getting wound up about some world event, I ask myself "What can I do right now to ameliorate this thing even a little bit?" and nine times out of ten the answer is "nothing"."
Can't be stressed enough.
I love this interview, thank you Mark. It is admirable that Scoot wanted to figure out what was going on with religion so he started researching it to find his own way and from there is working to help others live a better life.
I haven't heard the term Christian adjacent before! I was raised in the Christian faith and now am adjacent as I choose to embrace and explore all forms of faith. However, as I get older I feel the Christian imprint more deeply on my soul and can tell that's where I am leaning.
Like Scoot I had to look up Prosperity Theology so that's another thing I learned about from this interview and I enjoyed his response about it.
I am totally going with Roosty Scoot now on Notes! Thanks for the deeper dive Mark.
