An interesting read. [Mar. 19th, 2012|09:57 pm]

"Let us challenge religion to leave children alone until they are adults, whereupon they can be presented with the essentials of religion for mature consideration. For example: tell an averagely intelligent adult hitherto free of religious brainwashing that somewhere, invisibly, there is a being somewhat like us, with desires, interests, purposes, memories, and emotions of anger, love, vengefulness and jealousy, yet with the negation of such other of our failings as mortality, weakness, corporeality, visibility, limited knowledge and insight; and that this god magically impregnates a mortal woman, who then gives birth to a special being who performs various prodigious feats before departing for heaven. Take your pick of which version of this story to tell: let a King of Heaven impregnate - let's see - Danae or Io or Leda or the Virgin Mary (etc, etc) and let there be resulting heaven-destined progeny (Heracles, Castor and Pollux, Jesus, etc, etc) - or any of the other forms of exactly such tales in Babylonian, Egyptian and other mythologies - then ask which of them he wishes to believe. One can guarantee that such a person would say: none of them."

- A.C. Grayling.

Writer's Block: Proven by Science [Aug. 13th, 2009|07:37 pm]

Do you believe everything has a scientific explanation?

Yes. That's not to say humanity will ever know or understand all said explanations.

Geek Surplus Request [Jan. 16th, 2009|05:08 pm]
My Dad's computer needs (in my opinion) more RAM. It's an older box with a single 256 MB PC133 SDR DIMM stick of RAM. Not sure what else I need to know... number of pins?

A quick look around suggests that they made 512 MB sticks... so ideally I need two.

Anyone got anything gathering dust, or know where best to look?

Please and Thanks.

Well that was just plain stupid. [Dec. 21st, 2008|03:12 pm]
Seems I've got a case of the stupids and likely just lost all of our photos and documents. In case I can't recover them (or rather have them professionally recovered) I was wondering who out there has copies of photos from our wedding, various hiking trips, canoe trips etc? 'Cause it'd sure be nice to get a copy.

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a heterosexual marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.
