About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

THE ROLE OF DOUBT IN SCIENCE

THE ROLE OF DOUBT IN SCIENCE

"The scientist has a lot of experience with ignorance and doubt and uncertainty, and this experience is of very great importance, I think. When a scientist doesn't know the answer to a problem, he is ignorant. When he has a hunch as to what the result is, he is uncertain. And when he is pretty darned sure of what the result is going to be, he is in some doubt. We have…

Unfettered Religious Freedom Really Does Mean the Freedom to Do Harm

"Freedom to discriminate with impunity?  It’s worse than that.

"Almost universally, the religious freedom claims pursued in the U.S. over the last two decades seek the freedom to do harm, most often the freedom to harm queers, women, children or…

A walk down memory lane, laundry day at Grandma's house

Posted on March 31, 2015 at 1:04am 8 Comments

 Here is a wood burning kitchen stove, much as my grandmother's. 

A washtub on the wood burning stove boiled dirty clothes. She used a hand-cranked wringer to move the boiled clothes to the rinse tubs. A piece of kindling wood snatch the clothes out of the boiling water and got them started in the wringer. I have the wooden stick in my basement laundry room. …

In response to you request to some of the inane remarks coming from Christians to simple questions like, " How are you." Suddenly, you are maddened that you even asked. I've certainly heard, "God bless you" and II reply "May Odin give you many strong children." I must admit that I've never heard, "Let go and let god." I guess that's like  "let Jesus take the wheel," which I just want to be forewarned when that happens so I can pull to the side and let them pass. Again, it is the same with, "God will lead you," I would certainly ask where? The last time I let some one lead me I ended up in a dark alley with a gun in my ribs (not actual, just making a point) I have my own to add to you list which irks be to regurgitation. Try this one. In response to a simple "How are you doing?" I got this, "I blessed and highly favored." I was in a strip club which I used to frequent. I said nothing, but what I was thinking that for being blessed and highly favored she seemed to be in an occupation that suggested otherwise.

 

"It's god's plan."

Dr. T. Have you tried Prometheus books. They publish their guidelines and are very forthcoming about what they seek.That is one of the first places I'd recommend.

Joan--There is a boring course college called Music Theory. Sounds daunting if you've never done a thing other than listen to music. However, once the first page is turned you discover it is nothing but bullshit. However, there is a course called the physics behind the music. It is not for the faint of heart. It is not about chords, repetitive flow, modulation or the various scales that exist and in what society. It actually explores sound generation and why an A doesn't sound like a C. You get into tension theory (a lowbrow brother quantum mechanics), wave forms etc. It is a very different animal and usually doesn't fall into a music major's path. Nevertheless, some fall into it's path just because it has the word music attached to it. That is why the best instructors know how to make what is virtually an inaccessible subject into one that is accessible and interesting, the difference between being an instructor and an educator.
