Free Will is a Result, not a Cause

I like this question because people have such a difficult time agreeing to agree on definitions. The most basic question of all, "What is Free Will" never gets hashed out so that people can discuss it on common terms. So I'm more interested now in just how to define it.

It's extremely difficult for people to imagine their own non-existence (whether before birth or after death), and perhaps the only way that an existing mind can contemplate itself is to…

The Last Laugh

What is light without dark? God and Job

Job 19:1 to 42:10



19:1 Both God and Satan remained quiet while Job and his three friends continued debating the system of justice God had provided for the Universe. Job said, "Give me a break, I'm innocent. I've begged God to hear my story but he's shut me out. He has unfairly counted me among his enemies. He has…

The Game

A Universe unevenly divided by truth and lies. Testing Job

Job 1:1 to 6:4



1:1 Once upon a time there was a rich man in the land of Uz whose name was Job. He was indeed one righteous dude. He was very afraid of the Lord, which is wise, and also he hated evil. So that was essentially Job’s stand on the subject of human morality, fear and hate. He had a…

Movie Discussion: The Invention of Lying (Spoiler Alert)

I braved a torrential Texas downpour on Saturday night to see this movie. Fortunately, it was well worth the drenched clothing and sodden sneakers.



This movie is brilliant in its dual criticism of both blind faith and strict realism. While the satire of religious belief is rather blatant, the film employs a subtler condemnation toward strict adherence to a singular reality.

Changing the understading of Atheism

I keep a lot of very religious friends around because I really enjoy debating topics. As a scientist, I feel it helps keep the mind sharp and lucid regarding understanding the world around us.

I feel this world view is untenable, and does not match with the ideas of science, scientific process or a functional and pragmatic way of viewing the world or interacting with the… Continue
