Violent Video Games Reduce Violent Crime

With the recent shooting at a school in Newtown Connecticut and the shooting in Aurora Colorado violent video games are in the news again. The old men in the old media are blaming violent video games as they always do when a shooting hits the national news.

Violent video games have been the target of old media and conservatives for years. They will spout dubious studies and claim there is a link. They will blame any act of violence on violent video games even if the perpetrator never…

I don't care about cosmic meaning

Copied from my blog



This is an extinction to a comment (3 actually due to the 500 character comment limitation) I am made to this video (under the name "thenamelessone83"). It is not a Christian video about some cosmic meaning (which is what it would seem like from my comment) it is an atheist video… Continue

Evolution is Unfalsifiable?

Falsifiability is very important in science; scientific theories and hypotheses can not be scientific unless they are falsifiable. When creationist finally learn this they attempt to use it to discredit the theory of evolution.

A history of Life and the Universe Part 1: Before the Before

Its a question that people have grappled with for millennia: Where did the universe come from? People came up with creation myths to answer it but didn’t have any concrete answers and its still the same today. While we have strong and well supported theories to explain things all the way back to 10-34 seconds after the big bang but from before moment zero to then is still a mystery.

While that is a good thing, there is allot of bullshit in this green movement. Many things that people think are “green” are in reality not “green” and in fact very bad for the environment.



I’ll start with the inspiration for this post: Allot of people (including Obama) think ethanol is “green” because it comes from plants grown on… Continue

Introduction

Beliefs in gods is as old as civilization as is religion. But is the belief in god(s) and religion necessary? Does it benefit society or does it harm society? It is my belief that a belief in god(s)… Continue
