I have 2/3rds of a swimming pool.

That's actually pretty cool. Need to chlorinate it soon and do other pool like stuff, but for now it's less a giant pit in the backyard and more a play thing.

Without clutter there is space.

How odd. I removed a few large unneeded things from my room and suddenly there is lots of space.

Hawaii and evolution.

I'm starting to really like these little quick explanations and information given out in quick little videos.



Also like so...

Bathroom Prank


Absolutely Hilarious Bathroom Mirror Prank - Watch more Pranks

Somehow I think I'd figure it out right away.

Facebook lies.



Can anybody spot the contradiction? Apparently if you were only 14 days old. They would exclude the crap out of you. Lame.

Why are there still Chimpanzees?



While I support such answers and I think Dawkins gives a marvelous answer. I'm more inclined towards a general and somewhat more complete explanation of biological evolution. As I noted in my response to the question here, and perhaps opting for an even more humorous reply.

There are generally two different understandings of evolution, one is a strawman setup to tell people that evolution doesn't make any sense at all by slandering the theory with false and untrue remarks which leads to question of why there are still other apes, whereas the other version of evolution is the real and solid science of biology. While I admire Dawkins answer for being clear and very good at explaining the error made in the question, the rest of evolutionary theory isn't obvious. From this answer and anybody asking the question doesn't really know.

Why do species diversify? Why do the species fall into a tree like that? The core problem is they don't have a good and understanding of the actual theory. They have a strawman and their strawman suggests that's a good question. To *REALLY* answer the question, one needs to give a quick and understandable run through the actual theory at it's most basic. I think Darwin gave the most thought to how to explain evolution to the uninducted. I think his explanation from Malthus to the struggle for existence, and then a clear explanation of taxonomy is going to be the quickest road to Rome. With this nugget of truth, it can quickly be used to expand and show why the question is wrong with the given sort of taxonomy explanation.

Quote of the Day: Bertrand Russell

Bertrand Russell,

"Is the world divided into mind and matter, and, if so, what is mind and what is matter? Is mind subject to matter, or is it possessed of independent powers? Has the universe any unity or purpose? Is it evolving towards some goal? Are there really laws of nature, or do we believe in them only because of our innate love of order? Is man what he seems to the astronomer, a tiny lump of impure carbon and water impotently crawling on a small and unimportant planet? Or is he what he appears to Hamlet? Is he perhaps both at once? Is there a way of living that is noble and another that is base, or are all ways of living merely futile? If there is a way of living that is noble, in what does it consist, and how shall we achieve it? Must the good be eternal in order to deserve to be valued, or is it worth seeking even if the universe is inexorably moving towards death?"

Protests? That sounds like hard work.

Picture conversation with a Fundy.

Fundy:


Me:
Somebody help me out here. Did paintings become evidence? I've not gotten all the updates. I'm not sure. Anybody?

Fundy:
Ark of the Covenant where the 10 commandments were found, again not a painting.


Me:

The credit on his picture of where it was taken really helped. Fundies are so funny.

Not sure if I'm being funny or just really cryptic.

"Censors indicate: Pun!"

Sharia Law in the US?

Some trolls get butthurt = Sharia law.



"We were trolling at some place and security escorted us out. Waaa."

You know, I've seen pissed off Christian groups... they are way worse. And ofcourse the Muslims didn't want to be taped, it's against their religion. Some are more and less inclined towards having pictures of them, but it's an entirely predictable reaction.

"I tried to cast a spell on this Christian for Good Harmony and they got really mad at me? How dare they! They must hate harmony!"

Why don't I have freedom of speech on property being used lawfully as a private venue. It's the coming Apocalypse! Fear the brown people!

Staring at the sun.

What good is space exploration? Shouldn't we spend money on more practical things.



This kind of argument is rather silly, as if detecting and predicting spaceweather isn't a useful thing to do. It might save us from letting all our electronics fry.

Biblical Marriage

If you read the Bible you'd know that marriage is between one man and several women, girls who were payment to settle debts, virgins who survived genocidal conquests, close relatives, and, occasionally, a dead brother's wife.


I often use this blog to find things I want to express. I had a similar quote and updated it later on to better reflect the Bible. As such, I'm reposting the new version.

That Mitchell and Webb Look: There is no God.



Somehow it seems like I've foregone blogging altogether and starting posting these skits from That Mitchell and Webb Look. It's not really my intention, but rather just that they are so good.

Phelps Injunction maintained.

I hope all these laws get repealed soon. It's such utter crap.

The dumbasses on Fox talking about it was just idiotic.



If you allow anybody to sell icecream 50 meters away from the funeral. You must allow them to be there. Basically if it is public property they get to protest whatever they want. BS stay away laws are absolute crap and they remind me of Bush-era Free Speech Zones.

They protest because God tells them to inform others of our impending doom of God's wrath as we are all doomed because we skirted God's law. They don't protest the funerals because of Don't Ask Don't Tell, they protest the funerals because dead soldiers, like 9/11, and any and all disasters that kill American lives are signs of God's wrath. What ignorant tools Fox has...

Christian Children Programming is scary.

I mean, it's almost as scary as that time I spent an hour watching Discovery Kids.
