Neece Update and Request for xmas Company Advice

Hey everyone! How are you!?

Well, I survived my company. Barely. It was a near thing. They are expecting to return for xmas and have xmas dinner at my house.

I'm more than willing to take ideas for how to tell them they can't use our house as a hotel whenever they like. They are catholics. They are the most wasteful, vain, shallow people. They are selfish and self centered. And if they come to visit for the holidays, I think I will go ballistic.

Any suggestions? Please… Continue

infinity is

so far... but the real world is

around the corner.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was turned on 18 minutes ago, and I'm still here... and so, presumably, are you.

So, we can start the day off on a happy, happy note! We. Are. SURVIVORS!

Fascinating shit, really. Physics... not just for the alimentary canal any more!

There is, however, a lot of… Continue

infinity is

so far... but the real world is

around the corner.

Not really apologizing for my haikus... but some of them are reality-based, some of them aren't.

And if you don't understand them, don't ask me... I probably won't know anyway.

Which reminds me... there was no Haiku Monday on 3WA yesterday... that just can't be allowed, can it?

Not an exciting day, and… Continue

Moving things around. Chariots of Iron Blog Online.

Over on the blogs I saw an interesting article which relates precisely to the segment we did in season one, episode one.

This article does a much better job of pointing out some competing ideas, and gets into some information I did not have time to adequately cover in the segment, I strongly suggest clicking through the links in the article as well. I know that the LHC is dominating the minds of pop-science fans, but these are major breakthroughs going on which implications… Continue

A per usual, vjack over at Atheist Revolution has an excellent post on how you can be an Atheist Activist with minimal effort.

And once they take the stage...

"Right now they haven't seen the true church. There's an underground church that the world has no idea that exists."

Well, you aren't as secret as you'd like to think. Most moderate Christians just like to deny that you… Continue

Harvard honors the Sarah Palin of humanism


It's always interesting when someone unexpectedly breaks from the backfield and grabs a high-profile plum from more worthy contenders. Dan Quayle, Harriet Miers, and Clarence Thomas leap to mind. Shakespeare in Love beating Saving Private Ryan for Best Picture, or Art Carney (!) beating Dustin Hoffmann, Jack Nicholson, and Al Pacino for Best Actor.

Sarah Palin recently joined the ranks of those unexpectedly thrust to the front of the line,… Continue

clearly. the path to

complete understanding

is complete knowledge.

Knowing, understanding... feeling. All tied together in our wonderful human brains.

Some call the combination "soul".

Thus, the combination word, soul-mate.

Karen and I had it for at least the last fifteen years... I thought that we had it all along, but it kept growing and growing... what we had was a… Continue

“So Sambo beat the b!tch!”

Don't get mad at me, I didn't say it. She did.

“So Sambo beat the bitch!”

This is how Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin described Barack Obama’s win over Hillary Clinton to political colleagues in a restaurant a few days after Obama locked up…

The Real


The physical encompasses all, it is existence itself.

It is the beginning and the end.

To speak of before, after or beyond the physical is nonsensical.

The physical has no opposites or complements, it is singular.

It is the source of all things, ever creating new forms.

The physical is ever-changing, ever in motion.


The physical is awe-inspiring and majestic.

It is compelling in its… Continue

Atheist Vote 2008

How should a non-theist who values the separation of state vote in 2008? The quick answer, "against Sara Palin" may be too simple minded. Remember Penn Gillette's' warning that the lesser of two evils is still evil. Election 2008 presents a terrible dilemma. I don't have a clue as to what Atheists should do come Election Day 2008.

This is a year when no Atheist should feel entirely at ease in casting their vote. Any way I look at it, I will either feel guilty for what I "supported"… Continue

I just recently joined Atheist Nexus because I moved to a place to teach Spanish where most people are conservative and Christian. Before I lived somewhere where liberal atheists were relatively common, and at least no one would assume I was a Christian or Republican.

This is my first year teaching, and I had to move here to get started, or somewhere I would like even less. Not knowing anyone, and being afraid to say what I really think out here, I need somewhere I can go to be… Continue

Blow, winds of freedom!

blow as much as you want to...

leave my house alone....

Josephine has dissipated... KC lost. Ike looks like it is headed straight towards Houston.

This is not good.

Hitting anywhere in the gulf is going to be bad... hopefully circumstances will reduce it to being a one or two before it makes landfall.

Right now, Cuba is getting battered badly, with… Continue

Palin's Church: A Clear Menace

Watch this. Watch it right now.

Sarah Palin's churches are actively involved in a resurgent movement that was declared heretical by the Assemblies of God in 1949. This is the same 'Spiritual Warfare' movement that was featured in the award winning movie, "Jesus Camp," which showed young children being trained to do battle for the Lord. At least three of four of Palin's churches… Continue

Ask Sarah ...

Because I have SERIOUS doubts about Sarah Palin, here are some questions that I would like her to answer without first consulting Google or Wikipedia. (Not necessarily these exactly, but rather questions patterned after these):

  • Who are the current President of Mexico and Prime Minister of Canada, and which political parties do they represent?
  • Who are the…

No Smear too Ridiculous

By many accounts Rick Warren, bestselling author, Pastor of the Christian Saddleback Church and host to a recent Presidential debate, is a well meaning and sincere guy. Based on what he says though, I have to ask, “Is there any slam on non-believers that would be too ridiculous for him to make?”

Pastor Rick appears to pretty open to electing Presidential Candidates of differing religious perspectives. Taking him at his word, he could support candidates from faith traditions that vary… Continue

Print this on gummed labels and stick into bibles everywhere because believers like to know their bible better.

Those who claim that the bible is the word of god and therefore the truth can hardly complain.

Love is but freedom

and freedom is what it is;

then there's liberty....


A pleasant day... didn't get to sleep until 02:00, but I got up at 09:00 and felt great.

Rainy and cold again today, so no walk.... there will be some good walking days soon... or maybe I could just put on a pair of jeans, heh.

I went to the grocery store and felt so cool -… Continue
