I've done dozens of environmental "service" trips and, you know, there's always one person in the group that doesn't fit in--despised by all. So I'm sure we'll have one slow poke--or worse, a roommate that snores!
And yes, formation of axioms must also admit of reason. Axioms obtained from indoctrination are morally nil. I agree entirely. Glen, my philosophical older brother, thank you for the helpful critiques.
For years I bundled up to go jogging. Only recently have I decided "This is nuts!" Besides, I have "chilblained toes" which hurts if I spend too much time in the cold. I get outdoors enough as it is. Thanks for the comment.
Regarding bang and transition, I would forward that question to Roger Penrose's "Road to Reality". If you survive that mammoth tome, assuming that you have comprehended what you have read, you will have acquired the requisite knowledge for a PhD in physics. The next step would be to create a universe in a jar to experiment with and see what conditions are required for stability. Make sure to feed and water it twice a day and play some J. S. Bach to nurture its intellectual growth.
LOL!! Thank you so much Glen. Type it up and hold onto it! The book won't be on the market for another 2 weeks. But I truly appreciate your enthusiasm and support. A girl can never get enough men beside her lending their strength. :)
Hi there! It was a number of things, really. Since I was brought up in (what I view now as) a high-conrol cult, I never really did any thinking for myself. I just accepted what I was told for most of my life. I started to develop doubts about my beliefs and discovered the internet. I spent a long time doing research specifically about my own religion, which I discovered to be anything but the truth, and soon moved on to researching evolution and atheism.
