So much more to talk about ...

I was on the phone last night with an old friend I hadn't seen in fifteen years. He's an accomplished evolutionary biologist AND he owns a world-beat record label. While he is exposed to, via his business, belief systems from many diverse cultures, he has never believed in god; he was not raised that way. In fact, he admits that, while the notion has always been a curiosity, understanding the details of any given faith has not been much of a focus for him. That is not to say he is… Continue

Chemistry, Love and Purpose

It seems to me that for a huge number of people that once included myself, getting over religion wasn't really the hardest part of letting go of the idea of a spiritual realm.

I think the hardest part is the existential crisis presented by the notion that who we are and what we are boils down to electrochemical reactions. Love, meaning, purpose, identity, etc. aren't any more real or valid at the end of the day than lightning. There's a kind of profound reticence we feel…

I wonder about atheist messages in disguise ...

When I was in the sixth grade, a nun called Sister Maxine (Sister Max) - who had to be a hippy lesbian in disguise - read Madeleine L'Engle's iconic book A Wrinkle in Time to us. I was totally blown away by that book. At the time I was sure she thought it was a secret take on Christianity. Nevertheless, it inspired me to go to the library and look for more ... science fiction.

I picked up a piece of preteen pulp by a guy named Robert Heinlein. It was about a kid who…

I've noticed an interesting trend in the rhetoric about, well, rhetoric - as it relates to speaking up and speaking out.

I was in a band years ago - an acid jazz band (for wont of a better term) and we were in the 'green room' at the club we were playing when I noticed they were pumping in really awful eighties disco. One of the singers, Yva, was this Peruvian pixie dyke with a full on beotch attitude and the voice of a goddess. In the room was a leather clad gay kid - a…

That is an issue best taken up with the design team, not me.

Hi Howard,

Just got your comments.. Been in the thesis vortex for a while now and just coming up for air. Yes, San Fran had amazing architecture.. I need to get to Chicago at some point and am hoping to do a train travel through the states at some point on the other side of this thesis thing. Also on my to-do list is to check out more of your interesting blog stuff..

I don't live in Fresno; I live in Albany, NY. I read about the Fresno article as it was posted by someone else who attends FCC and I was interested in finding out more about that douche Brad Lopez. It turns out I was reading everything a few days after it was posted so I found some updates and decided to share them. I'm sure those musicians you mentioned are worthy of mentioning, though. If I am ever out in Fresno (and I do plan a Cali trip in the near future) I will keep an eye out!

Thanks for the comment Howard. I often wonder the same thing. I don't think the world could handle it!

A lot of people have said that about the group...but somehow it just doesn't have the same ring to it.

No Howard, that's not me in my avatar pic. I just really like the image. I saw a video of some guy in India who did the same thing but with a much smaller snake.

Oh, I've already been in the gaming industry...didn't really care for it all that much. Wasn't bad, I suppose, but I'd much rather be in movies or TV if I can be.

Right now I have a webcomic that's satisfying my need to storytelling:
