The case for the existence of hell.

Posted on March 7, 2017 at 7:00pm 11 Comments

Let me start off by saying this simply an idea I have from time to time, I consider it a fun existential mental game. It's likely reasons like this most of my friends think I'm macabre and dark lol. This is not reflective of reality nor is it the sum total of my position or outlook on life or the world. I consider myself a reasonably happy person and not particularly depressed so any who get that vibe please understand that its totally ok to embrace the darker emotions (sadness, loss,…

A water bottle that fills itself! It's SCIENCE! duh

Posted on March 5, 2017 at 3:02pm 3 Comments

Ok so click bate title I know, and no there's not a water bottle that fills itself. Why? Well that inconvenient thing called math, and observable, measurable science.

And here in lies the problem. So many people fund idiotic ideas like this because they think you "don't need math" to deny cosmology, physics, science, instead you need to just sit there and think, and if it makes sense to you then you must be right! Totally laughable. Yet many fall for it. Millions of dollars…

The counter intuitive nature of the universe

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 5:15am 3 Comments

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…

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…

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.
