Book Review: Bertrand Russell: My Philosophical Development (Five Stars)

This book is not an easy read. In fact, some portions are most difficult especially when Russell speaks of applied mathematics and Euclidian geometry. It may help if the reader has knowledge of those areas, but more than likely it will not. Probably, the most important comparison is the realization that Russell’s life spanned the…See More

Book Review: Fighting God: An Atheist Manifesto for a Religious World

Posted on January 8, 2016 at 11:00am 8 Comments

David Silverman is one of the most recognizable faces of atheism. Known for his appearances on FOX News and his in-your-face brand of atheism. Unfortunately, Fighting God: An Atheist Manifesto for a Religious World could have been a much better manifesto if not for the small portions filled with assumptions and flawed cause and effect analysis. Nevertheless, it is a useful guide for integrating activism into the atheist movement.

While Silverman advocates…

Recently, while going to my favorite “catch and release” fishing hole I was attacked by a gang of deer. By the time they finished I was barely alive. I suffered lacerations, contusions and a concussion along with extreme embarrassment.

Two weeks later, it happened again except this dangle of deer were extremely…

The Season to Be Jolly?

Posted on December 23, 2015 at 3:39pm 7 Comments

‘Tis the season to be jolly—for some. Increasingly, Christmas has become one of my least favorite holidays. I can’t stand Christmas.

I am usually the Grinch of the Christmas season at least in my mind. I intentionally hold my tongue and let others enjoy one on the most…

Thanks, Donald, for the link to the music. I like the way you phrased the music appreciation via education. I always seek out your posts.

Thanks, Donald.  Needless to say, I'm the guy with the Brooklyn accent.  Rev Jones is the cowboy and the pompous bombastic asshole is the imam.
