Thanks for helping me with this bedeviling (ha-ha) problem. I hate that I wasn't able to see the March 10 and 17 links. In the midst of not having a job, it's a comfort to me.

How do you distinguish your washing machine or MP3 player from the crowds of other washing machines and MP3 players that perform as well at about the same price? Steve Jobs sure knew the answer: Good design.

Hey guys Check out my Gear Bag that makes TA run :]

A new book with a working title: Religion; A guide to pissing on it, and avoiding pissing on those you love.

Don't undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.

Would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf?

Clearly a vampire. My interest goes back much much longer than this sudden teenybopper craze. But I don't like the idea of transforming in to a wolf... It sounds painful.

Will You Marry Me?

Why would I want to marry you? Actually I don't really see the point of marriage other than for tax purposes. If you love someone a ring doesn't make it more or less valid

Who would win in a fight: pirates or ninjas?

ninjas

What is your favorite flavor of particle in quantum physics? Mine is Charm ;)

Nice one, charmed quarks are quite interesting. My favorite flavor of quark is the strange, but I like the theoretical tachyon. It's implications are very controversial.

Hey guys, since school has died down a little bit I have been able to do a little more thinking about how I became atheist. I would like to share my critical thinking moment with the rest of you so you can get to know me a bit more. Please feel free to share your own critical thinking moment that turned the tide or turned a light on for you.

I believe I was a junior in high school, and I was sitting in the psychology class with a teacher that, ironically, no one really respected. She happened to recommend a Web site that single handedly changed my life forever:

HowStuffWorks.com

I can honestly say that I learned more from this Web site than I did in my high school and college career combined. As I navigated around their Web site, I fell upon an article about nano technology.

nanotechnology.

I learned about atoms, and how they are truly the building blocks of life. This was the true turning point that caused me to ask critical questions about everything, even religion (which I did not grow up with). This led me to ask bigger questions; questions with simple answers were simply not good enough.

At this time I still did not know what atheism even was, or that I had been one my whole life. I kept pushing myself deeper into science and technology; the only logical conclusion, without even thinking about it, was that religion is the biggest lie that mankind has ever told.

However, after a lot studying and research, I can see how humans easily fall prey to not thinking for themselves; it is far simpler to just nod one’s head and agree than to turn a page and fearlessly ask questions.

Fear, as we all know, is a natural instinctive process. Because of this fear, people will never understand, nor take the time to understand, nor become willing to ever truly understand why they fear the things they fear. But science goes beyond this simple natural instinct; it is the willingness to go beyond the simple non-answer "because I said so!" This is where science says, "fuck you! I’m not willing to take your bullshit any more… and here are the reasons why!"

Science is the most beautiful tool humans have ever contrived on our planet, and it should be treated with respect and allowed to answer our most pressing questions! :]

And that is the evolution of how I became atheist!
