Feb 28 2013



So today at the store, I got back 60 cents in change. All well and good, but when I grabbed the quarters to put them in the pile for de-godding, I noticed that one of them looked a little different. “In [smudge] We Trust”, it read, unless my eyes deceived me. Yes! Now, I had …

Comfort: Calling All Christians!

It’s a target-rich environment, with atheists galore! So it’s onward Christian soldiers, we’ll be marching as to war! There are lots of you on Facebook, but I’m asking now for more, Cos my comment threads are being overrun.

Free Speech, Or Plot To Kill And Eat His Wife?

We see these rights as absolute— No state would dare restrict ‘em— We have not broken any law… Until there is a victim. We’re free to speak of fantasies Of murder, rage, or hate— We haven’t crossed the line, of course, Until… it is too late. Our whispered, dark conspiracies Are safely out of reach— …

On Belief

There is a group of people (they’ll be named before too long) Who are likely to believe a thing They’ve just been shown… is wrong. They’re wrong, it seems, quite often, But in truth, it brings no shame; The errors are so commonplace We’ve given each a name! There’s type 1 and type 2 error— …

On Free Will

Our free will, or its illusion, Is the source of much confusion; We make choices all the time, but can we say that they are free? Mind and body in cohesion Make us think we are Cartesian, But the whole of modern science makes me want to disagree! A causal mind’s existence, Though a meme …

Composing, Decomposing, Recomposing.

I was walking the cuttledog this evening when a refrain passed through what passes for my consciousness. I instantly recognized it—it was something I wrote maybe ten or fifteen (maybe 20!) years ago, part of an unfinished song. At one point, I had written maybe 8-10 verses to this song (it’s kind of a ballad, …

We’re All Gonna Die!

We’re all gonna die! We’re all gonna die! And it’s only a matter of time. We’ll live on in memory, and then not at all (and it’s not any better in rhyme) The meek and the mighty, the great and the small Will be gone. So the message is clear: Since you won’t be immortal, …

Dear Mister Minister (re: DEAR MR ATHEIST)

Dear Mister Minister… I read your little letter—and I disagree, I fear— Since you don’t allow for comments there, I’ll have to comment here: It’s written very clearly, and it isn’t very long, But your letter has a fatal flaw: its premises are wrong! You paint us a position, which you eagerly refute But the …

There Are Times I Just Hate The Brain

Your brain does this; your brain does that; Your brain does other stuff. Your brain controls your body, and (If that was not enough) Your brain makes all your choices, and Your brain dreams all your dreams— So much of what you are is in Your brain… or so it seems. I’ve learned about neurology, …
