Angela Olson commented on Darren Taggart's blog post Science too hard? There are ways around it, IMO.
"It is certainly hard to debate such people, but it's easy to see why they don't fully grasp the idea of scientific theory. They most likely have been raised in a church, or have subscribed to a belief and connected on an emotional level…"

Angela Olson replied to Mark Michicich's discussion SWiFT members, do you think Jesus was a historical person? in the group SWiFT
"I've thought about this before. It would be really hard to say if he ever really existed, because any true "proof" is long gone, however, if you take into account the fact that the story of Jesus runs parallel to other stories, such…"

Angela Olson commented on Kris King's blog post * Terms and conditions apply
"Did I say, according to the humanist manifesto... I think not. But you did just add another layer of evidence that points to the conclusion that you are arguing for the sake of arguing. In which case, I am concluding this conversation."

Angela Olson commented on Kris King's blog post * Terms and conditions apply
"This is a very touchy subject because we have been taught an eye for an eye is just, and our paranoid nature feeds into our desire for punishment and revenge. As a humanist, I feel life is the pinnacle and absolutely precious, so the termination of…"

I Want to Die a Slow and Painful Death.

Posted on September 23, 2011 at 9:40am 6 Comments

Yes, I want to die a slow and painful death.



Just hear me out. No, I'm not going all emo on you. I'm not some sort of sick masochist. I hate pain. I cry when I get a paper cut on my finger (or across my cornea). Which is all the more reason why I want to die a slow and painful death.



This isn't like most people's initial response when they are asked how they would prefer to die. I think the majority has conceded to the age old response, "I want to die peacefully in my sleep."… Continue

My towering castle

Posted on September 18, 2011 at 8:38pm 5 Comments

Not very long ago I had a towering castle in a large open field. It was an amazing castle. Each brick seemed as though it was perfectly made, and it was shiny and magical. Its walls dwarfed all other structures. I swore it was so tall that the night moon had to jump over it. It had been there ever since I could remember. I used to gaze at its majesty and it gave me such a great feeling when I looked at it.

As the years progressed, however, I began noticing that my soaring castle, as… Continue

Hey Angela.  Got my budget CD/DVD combo of Tim Minchin's "Ready for This" from Amazon.  Have only heard the CD so far, but very different from the live Manchester performance with orchestra.  This one is with a band and a dramatically different setlist.  Only 3 songs overlap:  "Prejudice," "Darkside," and "White Wine in the Sun."  I heard the DVD is similar to the one man show at the Pabst.  Later.

Hey Angela.  It was great seeing you at the meeting.  I told my wife about your adventures in Ireland and she was shocked.  I too really thought that the different factions had kissed and made up.  Like I said, you need to right a book about your travels.  I promise to buy a copy.  Welcome to Atheist Nexus.
