The counter intuitive nature of the universe

First I would like to note that I'm still working on Part 2 of what is science, since a strong understanding of what is evidence, and how one weighs various forms of evidence, and separates evidence from falsehoods is so important I am taking my time with it to ensure I get the best quality and highest accuracy that I can (while hopefully still making it fun and enjoyable for you all). Thank you John Elder for suggesting I read Carl Sagan while I work on…See More

An amazing overview of my favorite show of all time.

Posted on February 19, 2017 at 10:25pm 4 Comments

Cowboy Bebop,

A Japanese animation with 24 episodes and 1 movie, that I first saw as a kid. It quickly became immortalized within my heart upon viewing the final frame of the final episode. In the moment of the "protagonists" death a message is left for the viewer.  Against a black screen in white letters, instead of "to be continued..." It says simply, "You're gonna carry that weight.

I've tried to explain how important this show is to me in the past with friends, and…

Is gravity weaker than magnetism (or electromagnetism)

Posted on February 19, 2017 at 4:30am 19 Comments

So, fun little experiment. Take an electromagnet and a piece of metal (or even just a regular magnet and some metal), place them close together and watch the metal "stick" to the magnet. You can have some fun making the metal move, and even suspend the metal in air. 

HOLY SHIT YOU JUST DEFEATED GRAVITY!!!! woooo! this must mean that magnetic forces are billions upon billions upon billions times more powerful than gravity right? Eh, not really.

(Also claims that…

I've been waylaid with a pressing question that needs answers.

Posted on February 18, 2017 at 9:21pm 0 Comments

I was watching a video and again confronted with something that has bothered me for years. So I wrote the maker of the video in the hopes they might have an answer. I'll leave the letter here as well, maybe someone can finally answer my question.

Hello, I recently watched your video "Countering the Moral Argument part" 1 and 2 and was reminded of a question that has been bothering me for many years. I sincerely hope you see this message, can respond, and hopefully…

Hey man.  I just thought I would drop you a line, since John Elder pointed me to your blog post about the electro-plasma universe, or whatever it's called.  I had my own dust-up with Tom Sarbeck on the subject, over in another discussion thread.

http://atheistnexus.org/forum/topics/hi-people-1?commentId=2182797%3AComment%3A2733449 if you're interested in seeing another instance of his crap-show.  It started on the previous comment-page, but most of the important stuff is on the page of the comment I linked.

Anyway, I'm going to go give it a read, when I get the chance.
