Ket's Weekly(ish) Anime Recommendation!™ (Ergo Proxy)

Since the Fall 2011 anime season is just kicking off, it's a bit hard to make a recommendation from what I'm watching currently. So, we'll take a look back at some older series.



This week, I'd like to recommend Ergo Proxy to those of you who have yet to see it. Unfortunately it seems like it's been pulled from Hulu, but this -is- the internet and I'm sure you're all familiar with how Google works by now. If not,…

21st Centry American Slave Trade

This post is nothing new but it does bear repeating. In America, The United States of America, more than 1 percent of our population [3,000,000 people] is in jail. This is of great benefit to the prison corporations that make money off other people misery and leads to a system that is more interested in getting people in prison than having justice done.



I will post some numbers form the BBC show "QI" hosted by Stephen Fry with a four member panel and a link to that normally quite…

The Gods In Epicurus' World

The Gods In Epicurus' World



The reason or triggers to become atheistic differ, depending on the kind and trait of the deity to be discarded and the general level of available scientific knowledge.   
The question, how much Epicurus was a theist and why he did not become an atheist as would be consistent with his philosophy as expected from our modern view, can only be…

Cain, 999, 666

Pizza up!  Is this business man going to continue being a mathmatician trying to solve the world problems?  My prediction, he is not going to last long.  I think when he is pressed to speak of policies other than money he will be off beat. For now he is singing the song 999.  How about that Michelle Bachman's comment "the devil is in the details", what a joke!

Steve Jobs - Jerk or Saint?

I found an article today as I was browsing the Net that was rather interesting to me.  Just as all papers are giving their own renditions of Steve Jobs, his business, his personal life, his personality, and now his death, this particular article spoke of his faith.  While Jobs wasn't considered the religious man, his most apparent religious connection was to monastic Buddhism (One that I find rather interesting, merely for its peaceful nature).  He walked barefoot in his office often, and at…

Thoughts about race and personality.

I'm a big, white, balding male with glasses who was born in the Netherlands, but what does that say about me as an individual or what I stand for? I can tell you how Dutch culture has influenced me, and how the educational system in the Netherlands has helped me to "escape" from religion, but that doesn't make me feel "Dutch", whatever that means.

 

When I was younger, the fact that I wore glasses was more of an issue then it is nowadays. When I was younger kids teased me with…

My little boy

So, I have this beautiful little four and a half year old boy named Eric. We've done a pretty good job at raising him in a secular environment, but what troubles me are outside influences. My parents are pretty good at respecting our wishes, but it seems that my in-laws aren't so good at it. My son has been coming home chatting about god and how he made everything like trucks, roads, and buildings. My husband and I corrected him by saying that people make these things and that god was…

Miracles?

Have you ever gone to the phone to call a friend, only to have the phone ring first and find your friend on the other end of the line? What are the odds of that? Not high, and your patternicity intuition probably signaled to you that there was something special about this event. Was there? Probably not. Here is why: the sum of all probabilities equals one. Given enough opportunities, outlier anomalies will inevitably happen. The question is not: What is the probability that a friend…

Interacting With Gullible People Is A Hazard For Rational People

Interacting With Gullible People Is A Hazard For Rational People



Whenever I am in contact with someone expressing the belief in irrational claims, my spontaneous emotional reaction is a strong feeling of repugnance and aversion.  For a long time I had been wondering, why I could not just shrug my shoulders in scorn and condescension for their ludicrous need of believing.    …
