“Why is it being replaced?”


a new form of worship

For the past few thousand years man has worshiped a higher power. but what happens the more people become not only aware of self, but are deep into our gadgets. So much so that we begin to follow the practices not in alignment with our cultural backgrounds. We are ritualistic when it comes to our need to always be connected to our digital devices. We carry devices around like it’s our bible, and we can’t help but to look down even if it’s for something very mundane.

belief system in jeopardy

How could ones belief system be in jeopardy because they are into technology. Well, the things that beliefs have challenged for so long are being made possible today. So people are less interested in the intricacy of the idea and more about the burden of proof. And the more technology we have the more information is out here, the more people challenge what is it they believe in.

is it going away

Religion is going away, but is technology really an aspect of the decline? Or, are we just more aware? But that awareness comes as a result of having so much technology readily available.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
