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.
So the question still remains but that doesn’t mean there are not possible answers.
But wait,… Continue

My grandmother is a huge fan of the 'Left Behind
books. I find them to be generally distasteful, but interesting in concept. The question of what the rest of us would do if some significant portion of the population was 'gone' (abducted by aliens, turned into zombies, killed by a plague, wiped out in a war,… Continue

My father is dying. He is dying but he is happy. He will be 80 in October and he may make it that far, though we are not sure. He is in pain and he has been struggling for many years with breathing and chest pain as well as pain in his legs.
But I do not want to dwell on the pain. I think there are many women who think of their fathers as heroes. I know this is true for me. When I was little I wanted to be just like him and one would often… Continue

When I posted on my other diary about the movie The Fourth Kind an atheist friend of mine was like, "Oh I'm never going to Nome, alienz will get me!"
I responded with an incredulous "how much pot do you smoke?" and a list of reasons I don't think it's a factual story any more than DIsney's Pocahantas was a factual story. He got pissed and started calling me a brainwashed idiot. All of a sudden I am dumb and "can't think" because I don't believe it was real. Then he said he was… Continue

It seems the older I get the lighter the sleeper I become. There was a time that you could shine a bright light in my eyes and blast music in my ears and I would not awake.
After the birth of each of my children I would instantly wake to the sounds of them crying or even moving around in their beds but I could sleep through anything else. Eventually I'm pretty sure I slept through some tears.

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of teachers, elders or wise men.
Believe only after careful observation and analysis.

I run a Skeptics in the Pub here in Huntsville- next one in February, be on the look out. I'm interested in how many people self identify as "Skeptics". And what they think are interesting subjects. Yes, I'm shamelessly asking for relevant topics for my events to focus on; but I'm also just curious what other people think about.
Equally interesting, to me, is what non-skeptics think about things like UFOs, Bigfoot, Medical Quackery (homeopathy, chriopractic, acupuncture, etc),… Continue
