Last Sunday, barely 10 minutes after I’d managed to drag myself out of bed, I got a phone call from my sister, Tam. Normally, this appalling crime warrants a stream of profanity-laden verbal abuse, but as she’d only called to let me know that Richard Dawkins was on BBC1′s “Big Questions” programme, and that the topic was whether the bible was still relevant, I was quite content to drop all charges. My abject lack of tolerance for religious nonsense, and my appreciation for the works of…Continue
Not really...these questions are actually insulting my intelligence. Wonder how others feel about them?
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,…
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…

My childs name is "Addox" and he is a 4 year old living with hydrocephalus. He is very high functioning and a very active kid. We are going through a tough time with him right now in regards to 3 brain surgeries in 1 month and we are currently in childrens hospital awaiting another that will hopefully fix him! I am an athiest that believes prayer is not beneficial at all, but allow family and facebookers to pray because we know they mean well. However, we have been flooded with pastors from…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
