East Idaho Flame Welcomes New Columnist, Justin Bowles
Justin Bowles will be the author of a new column on East Idaho Flame. The name of the column is A Search for Understanding. Justin is studying political science at Idaho State University and has been an assistant debate coach at Skyline High school in Idaho Falls for the last 6 years. “As a debater I was taught to think critically and analyze arguments,” Justin says. “As a coach, critical thinking is something that I tried to instill in my students. The ability to examine and investigate ideas is not just vital to debate competition, it is an essential part of being an engaged citizen.”
Justin doesn’t want to tell people what they should believe. Rather, he hopes to present us with ideas that haven’t been considered yet, or perhaps have not been presented well by the media. “My words are not an end, but a beginning,” Justin states. “You will likely have more questions at the end of a post than you did at the beginning. My hope is that those questions will drive you to examine further, and to seek the truth yourself. That is what I want; for each to seek, so that together we can find the truth. I hope you will take this journey with me.”
Justin’s column, A Search for Understanding will be published on East Idaho Flame every Saturday. You can find it by clicking A Search for Understanding under the Kindling section or by visiting http://eastidahoflame.com/a-search-for-understanding/.
