out there in our world

there are brilliant individuals

whose minds are incredible,

awesome & inspiring,

bearing thoughts, ideas &

theories, which many of us

wouldn’t be able to fathom

if the thinker her/himself

sat down at our breakfast table

& spoon fed it to us

like we were good little Gerber

babies.

Germany vs. Greece

Today in Europe the Big Thing on TV was the Germany vs. Greece game. Check out the front pages of some European news, bild.de, BBClemonde.fr, and you will see it being on top of the sports headlines - and thus people's minds. Admittedly I am no fan of football/soccer, but I do like to watch those games I know is going to be part of…

Did I just have an epiphany?

My wife and I were having dinner in our favorite Mexican restaurant, there was a ballad playing in Spanish, which I neither speak nor understand.  Suddenly, I had this vivid memory of being in a bar in rural Mexico and drinking and feeling morose over having lost my one true love!  I remembered my life, my love and our relationship.  I began crying, because of that loss, and I couldn't explain what the hell was going on.  Fortunately my wife was sympathetic and didn't have me committed.  Has…

The truth doesn't become any less true just because it's unpalatable.The people who have made it their business to sell religion have found what is palatable to the masses,and have pandered to them in order to enjoy their financial support.This process of pandering to the tastes and fears of the masses has been constantly modified and refined to accomplish their ultimate goal,which is the domination of society and the suppression of free will;Islam is a good example of this.I believe{with…

an incredulous intelligence

sharing 98.2% of the same DNA

with the chimpanzees who

caged amongst us mighty humans,

sit there for our amusement,

scratching their ass &

waiting for the next kid in the zoo

to press their stupid face up to the

we march around as if our

was something special,

never pondering for a moment

that while we treat those so very much

like us

The Revolutionary Science of Epigenetics

I believe that epigenetics is the next frontier in the study of genetics, and biology. Wikipedia's definition of epigenetics is a good start, if you're new to the field.

But I'd like to clarify something that might otherwise be confusing people about this new science. The scientific definition of "epigenetics" can vary depending on which aspect the geneticist focuses: Embryonic Development, or Inheritable Traits.…

JOB 2.0: Following the precedence…

  His parents hoped his name would predestine him for a successful life of consistent but hard work. Job didn’t disappoint. Job worked hard his entire life and developed a thriving mega farm, situated on roughly 150 acres of very fertile land. Over 700 donkeys (mainly for export to Grand Canyon Tours Limited and Mexican Farmer Exchange Services), 535 yoke of oxen, and around 7121 sheep occupied his expansive stables. The sheep were mainly used for wool, French restaurants, and lonely Montana…

RIDING A DINASAUR TO WORK ON A LAZY FRIDAY AFTERNOON

The stegosaurus carefully plodded its way among the rocky countryside. Its passengers, riding uncomfortably on its bony back, were hungry and in need of sleep, so were pushing their giant mount at a fairly quicker pace than usual. Slowly, as the distant horse manger drew near, the stegosaurus came to a stop and its two passengers, one pregnant and the other apparently her husband, gently stepped off.…

Idea! All the Creationists in South Korea Move to Texas and Create The United Country of Ignorance Where They Can Teach Whatever the Hell They Want!

Creationists remove evolution from text books. Sound familiar? You would think this is another news story from the good ol USA? Wrong. Turns out South Korea is moving up in the batshitcrazy category as well. Sad news for one of the world's leaders in scientific advancement.



Creationists in South Korea won a campaign to remove evolution from high school textbook



According to Nature.com, a group called the Society for Textbook Revise mounted an effective petition drive…

God is an Atheist

“And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that he would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt his existence.” Bertrand Russell

“I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours”    Richard Dawkins

I was thinking about the qualities God must have. The Abrahamic god…

Wearing a cross?

I'm an agnostic atheist. My immediate family contains no atheists though. They're all pretty much Southern Baptists, save for a couple Lutherans.

For graduation and my 18th birthday, my aunt gave me a beautiful necklace with matching earrings and bracelets. They're covered in my favorite color (teal) and peace signs, making it the perfect gift for me! I was so happy and excited to wear them. But there's crosses on there, with that hippie design (larger at top and bottom than… Continue
