"With thanks now to BenGee and John Elder maybe I understand more about gravity and how it works. The explanations you both gave make sense. The intrinsic forces of nature are awesome. It's pretty plain that we know very little about them really."

An amazing overview of my favorite show of all time.

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…

Purpose

Posted on February 16, 2017 at 3:35am 9 Comments

I mentioned in one of my comments exactly where I think I may be heading with my little corner of the blogosphere.

I've been thinking of continuing to make material, refine my work through the encouragement and feedback from all of you, and then releasing my work to a wider audience. You may wonder why I choose some of the topics that I do, considering much of it should be well known within this community, well this is why. I'm thinking about the future and working on things I…

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.
