I was debating the other day, regarding the nature of rap music and hip hop, and the topic got opened up to the nature of rap music as a form of poetry. With my limited knowledge of poetry, and my…Continue

"I would also comment that even chimps, when given food or tools, will naturally trade with other chimps, even for sex. I don't think it proves capitalism evolved, but it isn't just humans who perform that task. Thoughts?"

Facts Before Faith podcast/ I get to perform communion Xmas eve

So I have not been back in 2 years or so. So life has a drastic positive change for me. I have settled in as a software engineer, and I love bragging and being self absorbed- what are blogs for anyway?- and now have a job doing software testing avionics software (aerospace) and I FINALLY have a 401k and health benefits and employer matching on both, though they are a Christian based company, but not enforced.

Atheist, Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I graduated from Michigan Tech University with a BS in Applied and computational mathematics, and I am currently employed as a system software test engineer in Holland,MI. For the rare physical activity I enjoy biking and swimming and would love to do a sprint triathlon if it was not for my eternal hatred of running. When I can't, or choose not to, partake in those activities I will watch the occasional Cubs game and love my Red Wings (Only when they make playoffs) as well as my Michigan Tech Women's Volleyball! I try to read books on philosophy and more recently I have read books on the hubris of irrational thinking/decision making. I play my alto saxophone every now and then and pretend I am playing in New York's famous "Birdland" jazz club, if only I played more maybe one day I won't have to dream. Being that I can not fully answer this existential question, "Who am I?" I openly invite others to inquire more about me. Thank you.

Cell De Resistance: Let's Go Back Into The Cave

Posted on May 10, 2011 at 11:23pm 2 Comments

Plato once taught me, that we should find our way out of 'the Cave' of ignorance and to enjoy the real side of enlightenment. But now that we are out/closeted, what do we do now? I always like to cite the pew study that found that atheists, on average, knew more about world religions, and knew more about any particular religion than the practicing members within that particular religion. Well I was also taught by one of my favorite philosophy professors, that the Plato's cave does not have…

Does anyone have any resources that prove or disprove this claim? Also can anyone find the articles that show what the Wisconsin Teachers Union has proposed to Walker? I cant not find any 'credible' sources.

OOPS...Brief Intro To Greek Mythology

So for anyone interested in watching a doc about greek gods and the such, please visit that site. They mention the parallels of Christianity to this, coincidence? I believe this takes from Hesiod's Theogony, which is the Greek's equivalent to Genesis. Have fun!

 

Edit: The narrator and some of the speakers also think this stuff happened! lovely, just…

On the chilean front things could certainly improve. Our new (billionaire) president is overtly christian which, given that the ones before him were atheists, has brought a wave of religious, well... hand waving. Every good thing that occurs is thanks to god, in every bad thing we should consult with/beg to the aforementioned. The catholic church remains an important influence in our everyday affairs, of so they would wish, resulting in an incessant emission of opinions, consultation for the news, and general unasked for intromission [is this word used in english, it might be an hispanicism of mine] on peoples affairs.

PS:I'm really sorry for your dog's demise, mine died last month and, even thou he was not as close to me, it affected me. My condolences.

Greeting from the long country

Applied and comp math eh?

Mine was Applied in Mathematical Finance. I got interviews, all the way to the hiring stage- then WHAM- hiring freeze would bite me in the ass!

So i quit that, worked for a software company- didn't like it and here I am back again for a second degree in Physics.

Hopefully you'll have a better luck than I did.

Great blog posts. As someone who doesn't know too much about American politics I find your blogs are a fresh perspective, and are engaging and informative.
Take care.
