From my blog: http://janiceduke.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/art-science-and-richard-dawkins/
Recently I finally got around to watching an interview I’ve been told about many times by people on both ‘sides’ of the argument and neither: Richard Dawkins vs. Deepak Chopra [Click Here to Watch]. Dawkins, as usual, puts on airs of being Mr. Reasonable and Objective and ends up, to me, looking something of a bullying arse. The High Priest of Atheism as ever steps beyond the realm of his expertise (he has actually done good science and should continue with that). Although this is still within science – Chopra is a qualified and experienced medical doctor, a board-certified endocrinologist, experienced in conventional medicine and alternative therapy, Dawkins is a qualified and experienced researcher in evolutionary biology, quite different – Dawkins still acts as t

Well hello all ! sorry it's been a while since I last mentioned anything. Firstly things have progressed in leaps and bounds thanks to three great guys Bowksi, Shadowhawk and NICElabs ... all I can say guys is THANK YOU !
It's taking time to get my footing again, but it will all fall into place soon, many reasons are involved some 'rl' and others with just myself.
I am thanks to NICElabs, thinking of doing a sci-fi spin-off, but I'll let you voice an opinion on that.
Another thing is I'll be introducing a new character very soon ... the new 'Midnight' ... and she isn't a singer !
Thanks for dropping by and keeping an eye on things !

Against that which I am sure of.
Because, you see, despite the weight of knowledge I grad with a golden rope?
I still trail my fingers along the halls of faith.
But blindly believing that you mark the fall of every sparrow is ludicris.
To question is to push myself into disbelief and so
Down I look at my reading book and wander into the hearth of an atheist.

Well as the title says ... things are going to be reborn and in doing so the 'old world' is disolved in mush. The 'old' Racks View you come to understand and maybe love, has been destroyed along with my loss of information .. well what does that leave ? ... as the saying goes ...' Tabla Rasa ' [ means Blank Slate ] and with this in mind I am rebuilding character stories and it extends even to their histories for some. A few of you saw this as a way for me to start again and for once I agree and see this a new way to tell their tales and the tales of those around them.
So starting with Claire seemed the prudent action to take and as of the last four images, has proven a hit ... I think ! ... a second girl is on her way and I'll let the next image open some conversations when it arrives !
THANK YOU ALL !
Richard Dawkins on God of the Old Testament“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction:Richard Dawkins on God of the Old Testament2 months ago in Personal More Like This
jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty
ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal,
pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
～ Richard Dawkins
Thanks to Fellmekke for the inspiration.
If you know of any passage in the Old Testament where Satan appears to be the 'bad guy' I would like to know where.

Well things are progressing slowly and I'm taking a lot of time in making sure safe-guards are in place, please do not expect too much from me at this time .. a lot is hit and miss and I'm getting myself back into 'render' capacity.
It's through the help of ShadowHawkOne and Bowski, that to be honest is why I am still here because I was really on the edge of giving up. Too the many that have offered their help and services .. I am very grateful, some of you I will be contacting to aid my full return.
For those whom don't really understand the situation, it's like having the perfect cake but someone has eaten the best bits that took forever to create.
I am taking this opportunity though to give Racks View a complete re-boot, sine now my style has changed again and the need to rebuild it's citizens a major requirement. It will be a slow process and expect alot of variety along the way, I'm not fully sure about what I will be doing in the overall
