BLACK HOLES

I don't have to be an egg headed mathmatical gen. to know that a black hole at the center of our galaxy

cannot produce a "universe" equivilent in size and character to our "universe"...  Still, "scientists" will

persist in claiming that a mere black hole within a galaxy can produce such a "universe".

While "scientists" make such asinine claims, they act as snobs berating others who dare show interest in

science by postulating ideas that are far less…

Misunderstandings vs. Clarifications

As regards my book, JUST-US FOR ALL.  I think there might be some misunderstandings...  First of all,

I'm not an egg-headed, or math-headed scientist.  My theory on Universal Evolution is rather personal &

inspired.  It is intuitive.  I can't imagine a god setting off a Big Bang out of nowhere, so I imagine more!

I imagine much more for nature!

So, my book is not 100% Universal Evolution and it isn't "pure science".  As a matter of fact, I…

Whoops, apocalypse!

If I had to be honest I would say that I wasn’t the least bit disappointed when I woke up last Sunday morning to find that the rapture Harold Camping had promised, nay guaranteed, hadn’t actually materialised. It’s not because I felt a sense of relief that his prediction of impending armageddon turned out to be total bollocks, nor was it down to the failure of the world’s supply of gullible nitwits to mysteriously disappear while I slept (in much the same way their critical thinking skills…

An Historic Event

I'm in awe. Great speakers.. looked to the right - looked to the left and saw like minded people. The Reason Rally was an historic event and I was there.

I'm not as inspired by this blackberry playbook.  I deleted my last blog on Thursday and had to repeat it. Then accidentally said I liked my own blog and sent out one or more requests.  Can't wait to use a real keyboard and mouse tomorrow.

My Reason Rally Live Blog

9:10am



I'm going to give this a shot. Service permitting, I'll try to post frequently through the day. Just arrived at the Metro. No sun but no rain yet as well.



I've got on a jacket, my "smile, there's no Hell" t-shirt, an umbrella, 2 packs of smokes, and an anxious smile. Was just yelled at for smoking in the Metro station - whoops. Can't wait to get down there. My first stop (after getting coffee) will be the AN booth. For now its just me, but I hope to make many new… Continue

“Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one's soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are…

Power to make the point

Just a short emotion hopefully not too trivial

Occasionally during his lectures on the existence of god, Ravi Zacharias stops and excuses himself for not bringing a power point along with him. He smiles and says that he is "technologically challenged". Then he goes like the following: "He gave me the power to make the point". I have some reasons to assume that whatever he is telling to be the prove of the existence of god, the people in the auditorium will most likely remember his…

It's For a Bunch of Atheists

This morning I noticed a stage being set up at the Mall in Washington and excitedly wondered - Is that for us? I asked one of the workers what was going on and he told me this was for a bunch of Atheists. Darn... My hope was to hear the classier name - The Reason Rally.  My daughter asked me about this trip to Washington and I told her about the assault on the scientific method and reason and the need to separate church and state - and she got it. 

Part of my family is…

Two Arguments From The Debate

At Virginia Tech, on Wednesday evening March 21, there was a debate on the question "Does God Probably Exist?" I wanted to post comments on two of the arguments given.

One argument given was the "fine-tuning argument". One of the debaters was studying high-level academic philosophy, and they stated it thus:

Given the fine-tuning evidence, a life-permitting Universe (LPM) is very, very epistemically unlikely under the non-existence of a fine-tuner, and is not unlikely if a…

The worst album covers ever created

I do not usually share dumb Facebook stuff, but this just killed me...Some of the worst music album covers that you will ever see and most of them are religious in nature. Try to brace yourself first...these are bad!

Take Me to the River, or Possibly the Freezer

The Mormons have again gotten into trouble for baptizing people after they were dead. The Mormons defend the practice because they feel it solves the theological problem of people who died before the one true faith (theirs) was founded being ineligible to attain Mormon salvation.



One the face of it, this is a generous offer. The faith I was raised in,…

How is believing in a God that you hate better than not believing in God at all

I usually reserve posts on my personal blog for rants and ravings of mine, because I don't want to waste the times of all the social groups on here.  This is no exception, it's another of my own personal rants.

I recently saw an episode of "Becker" in which Becker insists that God is a man-made construct and says that he doesn't believe in him.  He is immediately chastised for his position by all of his peers and especially by Jake, the blind owner of a newstand at Becker's favorite…
