The Universe from NOTHING: Amazing video

This amazing summary of our latest understanding of cosmology, by Lawrence Kraus, will blow your mind. It's what the majority of physicists now believe about the universe. It's the most informative hour I've ever spent in my life. You've GOT to see… Continue

The Holographic Universe Part 2

In my previous blog entry, I posted the first half of a lengthy article that starts off (ostensibly) scientific, then degenerates into New Age subjects like ESP and other "psychic phenomena". I cut out the less-than-scientific parts.

The Holographic Universe

This is an old article I saved about a decade ago.

Christianity does NOT Exist

As I will argue, below, if a prerequisite of “true” Christianity is to follow Jesus, then nobody is a true Christian. The very reason for this also reveals our tacit acknowledgement that religious morality is subordinated to our innate human morality.



Nobody in their right mind, Christian or not, would fully obey Jesus. Do you know any Christians who abandon their worldly goods and rely on God to feed, clothe and shelter them? Of course not! But that's what Jesus…

White Male Privilege and Placebo Politics

Placebo Politics creates the illusion that social ills are being cured when, in reality, no remedy has actually been administered. Common examples of Placebo Politics are:

  • The push, by Muslims in the United Nations -- and their apologists, elsewhere -- to outlaw criticism of religion.
  • The spread, in Europe, of multiculturalism (as opposed to pluralism) as a means to accommodate minority groups (namely, Muslims).
