Noah—An Accident No Longer Looking for a Place to Happen

Posted on April 2, 2014 at 11:01am 9 Comments

Darren Aronofsky is an atheist. AND? With unsurpassed cinematography and stunning hits like "Black 

Swan" and "Pi" to his credit, he is also an excellent teller of stories. Unfortunately, "Noah" isn't one of them.

"Noah" starts on a low note and shrinks until it finally slides off the scale,…

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!

New group, in case you are interested.  I always read your thoughtful posts with great enthusiasm and interest:

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.  Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history.  Without gods, what is the basis for justice?  What do humanists and others say about justice?  What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?

At 4:03pm on February 22, 2012, Steph S. said…

Glad to hear you are doing better. My thoughts are with you.
