The Berlin Wall - A Melancholy Anniversary

“Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run, but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant.”― Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las VegasThis month marked what should be a joyous anniversary of the Mauerfall - the fall of the Berlin Wall.  For on the fifth of February the Wall had been down as long as it had been up;  precisely 10,315 days had passed…See More

The human species – a naturalist conjecture

Posted on February 11, 2018 at 7:55pm 2 Comments

One question still unanswered in biology and one that is of special interest to me is what happened to our evolutionary branch that made us so different than our nearest relatives on the evolutionary tree, the chimpanzees and bonobos? Putting aside supernatural explanations as well as wild speculation about aliens doing genetic experiments on our race as something to do while taking a break from construction of the pyramids, the correct explanation will be provided by science.

Review: The Faith of Christopher Hitchens by Larry Taunton

Posted on February 7, 2018 at 11:19am 1 Comment

I had read a lot of vitriol from the secular community regarding this book and made a point of re-reading Hitch-22 since Taunton referenced it in his opening description of Christopher Hitchens. So armed I was looking forward to reading it to see if all the ruckus was justified. As it turns out, the book is rather anti-climactic. There is nothing in the book that would lead one to think there was any deathbed conversion. I have respect for Taunton insofar as any discussions of conversion he…

A recent article from Newsweek was making the rounds in social media this week reporting on the new strategic draft issued by the Department of Health and Human services.  The draft includes language that defines life as beginning at conception.

"HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of…

Review: Hitch-22 by Christopher Hitchens

Posted on February 1, 2018 at 8:40pm 5 Comments

“I became a journalist because I did not want to rely on newspapers for information.”

― Christopher Hitchens

I started to read Larry Taunton's book, "The Faith of Christopher Hitchens" and he begins the book by painting a picture based on "Hitch 22", Christopher Hitchens' autobiography. Having read "Hitch 22" when it first came out I was struck how the impressions that Taunton was getting and the seemed importance he was assigning to them were not jibbing with my recollections so…
