UK Government responds to petition for Darwin Bank Holiday (I got mail!)

http://www.number10.gov.uk/Page18434The Good News is we are numerous enough to get attention.The Bad news is The Government would apparently rather substitute advances in human reason for quasi-nationalistic act of worship for war.I have nothing but pity for those who are compelled to fight and die (often for no good reason), it's enough to have remembrance Sunday in my view I'd rather not append to that a "British Day" to commemorate soldiery:…See More

Pumpkins 2008

I've uploaded my Halloween photos from October 2008.They can be found, lurking, here:http://atheistnexus.org/photo/albums/pumpkins-2008I look forward to reading any comments.When I was training as a teacher there was this prohibition against even mentioning Halloween. I never did understand the reason (though I can guess). It always struck me as a tremendous resource for art and creativity, narrative (eg setting, mood) and story-telling.Defeats me why people get so up in arms about it.but I…See More

Darwin In our Time: BBC Radio 4: Biography of Charles Darwin.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/darwin/inourtime.shtmlI've only listened to the first of these so far, but already have learnt some new things. Things I was already aware of being fleshed out some more. For example there's a bit more context to Darwin's beetle collecting years at Cambridge, his tutelage by various influential dons, his reading of William Paley creationism and the weight of ecclesiastical structure and expectation of…See More

Started Reading "Lost Christianities" by Bart Ehrman...

Posted on February 9, 2013 at 3:05pm 2 Comments

I didn't expect it to be so funny!!

I've had (literal) laugh out loud moments (in public too!) 

Very very interesting.  And I can see now how it builds on works like "Jesus interrupted" - the revelation about the last 12 verses of Mark / Jesus being Angry / The Woman Caught in Adultery  - is just scratching the surface of the complexity in the world of beliefs prior to the New Testament actually being written.

This book is utterly fascinating.

More Photos! Stormy Seas at Southwold

Posted on June 8, 2012 at 5:01pm 6 Comments

As my week off rounds of to a close, I set off to the coast with the intent of doing some self portraits on golden sands (my online profiles are in serious need of updating); maybe some long exposures of gentle waves breaking over rocks, to hang up around the flat.



This was not to be.



I arrived at Southwold, on the Suffolk Coast, with the sea crashing against the pier in spectacular, pounding, waves, the weather growing steadily worse and just out to sea a large front was… Continue

What I did with my weekend: photos from The Peak District.

Posted on June 5, 2012 at 4:54pm 3 Comments

For the bank Holiday weekend I assiduously ignored all matters pertaining to monarchy and departed Cambridge to return back to see my family and be in my 'spiritual home' of The Peak District and Derbyshire.



Have wanted to practice photographing long exposures of flowing water for ages - to get a feel for doing it right.



This has proven impossible in Cambridge; a flat-land where the water dies not flow - it ambles ... sedately, like an arthritic sloth on a Wednesday… Continue

Photos from Da Vinci: Anatomist

"On the 6th of June 2012 - I travelled to London, Buckingham Palace, The Mall. To the Royal Galleries to see the newly opened "Da Vinci: Anatomist" exhibit. This was truly awesome, and luckily they let me take my camera inside.... It's taken me a while to…

Hi, Richard.

Thanks for your obviously considerable efforts in transporting the Facebook conversation here.  I've offered a response which I hope is commensurate with those efforts, though most of it is intuitively obvious to us here.

Like you'd never guess but my be spectacled geek and I have the stamina of a stampeding rhinoceros. = You are describing me too.  Built my first computer from chips and motherboard.  Gotten into lots of trouble in life.  It's all good.   No regrets.

"♥Buggery and Hellfire!♥"  (just for the sake of saying it)

"I'm a slave to naturalism requiring "evidence" for stuff."  I'm actually a slave to oxygen, and food, and visible light, and.....  not that there's anything wrong with it.


Cheers!

Yup making a reappearance - a resurrection, you might say! = Thank Jesus!  Oh, maybe not.  But it's wonderful you are here.

I have been busy with work, and getting laid quite regularly (!!) Thank Jesus!    Oh, not there either!  Getting laid regularly should be in the Humanist principles.  It's definitely one of the best things in life.  Right up there with Pad Thai.


The hunt for a more stable long term boyfriend = Sasquatch is saving him for you.  Find Sasquatch and the boyfriend will come next.  Or, if you are into bear types, Sasquatch might be Mister Right.

Taking time out to have multiple car crashes (long story) = not a recommended activity. Really, get laid more, but have car crashes less.


Am hoping to go down to Dorset later this year for a photography holiday by the beach with the cliffs. = sounds like fun.  Bring a date.  I read that one of the cliffs had a big collapse.  Be careful when peering over the edge, or when walking below them  

Have spent a majority time, as you can probably tell from my latest but one blog, debating the faithful on Facebook. Which is a thankless task. = Thank you very much!

Some I've come home to more rational place to be amongst friends. = Welcome!


Arrggh.  Now I need to be disciplined and get back to my homework.  Damn.

Richard, Very happy to see you commenting.  I love that you are here.  A productive life, earning a living, doubtless are diverting you, but those are good things.  And I hope that you are enjoying life, learning more of what you like and what makes life good.  But Im also very happy to see you commenting here.

Nice to see you here.  I've missed you!
