There is no Heaven

I can make such a statement and claim it to be a valid, scientific assertion.  To avoid any word play or semantics, I can clarify my statement by defining the Heaven I’m referring to. For example, there is no Heaven as described by the Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In other words, a […]

Reckless Endangerment

I’ve noticed that when I’ve had too much to drink, specifically too much scotch, my ability to spell goes to shit. I backspaced and retyped the title to this post, which will soon resemble a rant, repeatedly until it finally passed the built in spell check, without which I’d write completely illegible gibberish. So this […]

Evolution disproved

Origins Of The Cosmos: A Debate

As I’m wont to do on occasion, I had a little fun with The Bible by posting the following statement as my Facebook status: “Reading Joshua for Bible Study. Lots of massacre for The Lord. Putting everyone to the sword. Good stuff. Family values & morality & such.” This led to a lengthy discussion with […]

The Spherical Earth Theory

Have you ever wondered how we know the Earth is a sphere? Maybe it’s a disc. The moon looks like a disc in the sky… There are people who simply don’t understand, and apparently refuse to get educated about, how we know things. Much of this stems from religious indoctrination and education, where the faithful […]

Atheists Leap Faithfully You Say?

I read an article in London Free Press’s online “Comment” section that I found upsetting. Not exceedingly so, but enough to prompt me to be here, pecking away at my MacBook. The author of this work is a man named Tom Harpur, who appears to have a website and some other writing to his credit. […]

Free Will

I have now read two articles by two well-respected men of science–evolutionary biologist and author Jerry Coyne, and neuroscientist, author and one of the Four Horsemen, Sam Harris—concerning the matter of free will. Both articles ultimately take the position that we in fact, do not have free will. That it is nothing more than an […]

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is wrong

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a scientist, and a very popular one. He serves not only in the capacity of a working scientist, but also as one who brings science to the masses, a communicator of science if you will. He hosts television programs as well as appearing as a guest on television programs. For all […]

A Universe from Nothing: Book Review

After watching Lawrence Krauss on YouTube, doing a presentation on how the Universe could have arisen from nothing, I felt compelled to buy the book, even knowing how I struggle with physics. The question of the Universe’s origin is just too fascinating to pass up an opportunity to possibly answer it. I did struggle through […]

Pattern Seeking Jesus

Human beings like patterns. Our brains make sense of the visual inputs we get by assembling things we see or hear into expected models. Biologically, this is a very useful brain function as it would have allowed our ancestors to better survive when they imagined the face of a predator in the tall jungle grass, […]
