About

Hello my name is Bill Langill and I Pastor Emerging Love Fellowship in Anza California, All video messages can be viewed at http://www.vimeo.com/user8064548/videos.   This blog reflects my views, opinions and musings alone and the buck stops with me concerning what is expressed by Anzaholyman.  I have been a work in progress for many years and I pray that never stops.  I love thinking in different ways about old things because new is hid in them.  My intention is not to state things absolutely but rather to start a Genesis that might lead to a Revelation.

  1. I mentioned “multiple streams of consciousness” it is actually “parallel distributed processing” Stream of consciousness is a Mahayana Buddhist term.
    The reference below is to a current professor at Stanford but the original work was done in the 70s authored by the then chairman at the time I reviewed it.

    Research Summary

    Research in my lab addresses a broad range of cognitive neuroscience issues in learning, memory, language and cognitive development. We view cognitive functions as emerging from the parallel, distributed processing activity of neural populations, with learning occurring through the adaptation of connections among participating neurons, as discussed in Parallel Distributed Processing (Rumelhart, McClelland, and the PDP Research Group, 1986). Research opportunities in my lab revolve around efforts to develop explicit computational models based on these ideas; to test, refine, and extend the principles embodied in the models; and then to apply the models to substantive research questions through behavioral experiment, computer simulation, functional brain imaging, and mathematical analysis.

  3. I would say I find open theism very interesting as a matter of fact it has opened up many new conversations. When I say theology is not fixed I mean just that or as Paul clearly teaches we go from faith to faith. There is always limitations to any answer I could give here on this blog but you have no need to be sorry as I love the open dialogue. You are most welcome to fellowship with us at any time as we are an open fellowship and try to keep an open mind in Love.

  4. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on how you use the word “Anzaholyman”? Maybe I’m missing something?

  5. Cool. I wasn’t sure if perhaps you had an interesting back story to it or some kind of play with words.

  6. In my community I have always been the guy who went into the mountain to pray. So an indian friend of mine stated calling me the Holy Man, which eventually because anza holy man

  7. Ray’s article was good. Have you ever dissected the teachings of Jesus as found in the four gospels about HOW one is “saved”, or “righteous” as compared to those promoted by his followers – particularly Paul? Seems to me that Jesus taught that love and faith saves while Paul’s theology changed this to blood atonement.
