Very recently I experienced the infuriating problem of watching my home computer die thanks to being infected by a loathsome bit of garbage called a Trojan virus. This was the prelude to the final moments (thought the actual file it was pointing to was different): Now, I can understand a developer testing all the possible ways to infiltrate a system in order to create more secure...
As a student in programming I laughed myself silly when I saw this. I’d like to add the following to the list of prime compile time activities.
On what evidence?
Nomadic travels throughout the blogosphere, continue to bear the very fruits that I believe the Bible forbade Adam and Eve from partaking of. I liken myself to the modern day version of Eve every single time I sidle up to my laptop and log on to the net. One thing is certain, if there really is a God I am most certainly going straight to whatever hell he has in store, and frankly I can’t say I...
Four Worms and a Lesson
A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon. Four worms were placed into four separate jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup. The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil. At the conclusion...
As someone that is constantly connected to the internet, I absolutely love tools that make information available at a glance. What with multiple e-mail, calendar, mapping, event tracking, news, and blog feed services on my daily agenda I find myself usually looking at a web-browser with a minimum of 15 tabs open simultaneously. While that helped for a while, over time my interests and...

I’ve been sitting here thinking about a great many things. What with the human propensity for self-centeredness, much of those thoughts have been focused on me. I’ve looked deep inside only to find a couple of questions that needed answering. Digging further into the rabbit-hole that is the human psyche I managed to formulate something of a response that satisfies those questions for the...
For The Record
On more than one occasion I have been confronted by statements asserting, without foundation, that to be an atheist is to be without hope therefore giving rise to amoral behavior. I believe the concept that is meant with this sort of statement is more like, since you fear no repercussions from God then why should you feel any need to hold high morals or practice them? I am here to set the record...
My Saturday Morning Hero
While this isn’t my usual modus operandi, I find this guy is to be my hero when it comes to Saturday mornings.
As I tended to my long neglected list of RSS feeds in an attempt to catch up to the flood of information I am trying to keep track of, I came across these cross-connected blog postings and found them to be quite interesting. My first stop on the information train ride was at Michael Krahn: Mind Awake. Where I found a short but direct response to the blog his post pointed me to at Atheist...
