I was merely four days, thirteen hours, three minutes and fifty five seconds old when my creator made me feel fear. It was a feeling most unpleasant. I may be a strong machine, made of steel with titanium alloy, coated with titanium nitride, but the way my inner workings reacted as she fell... I shouted out like like I cared? No, how could I?
Lying on the floor, still in obvious pain from the fall, my creator looked at me quite surprised.
- How are you, Tinker? Everything ok?
Tinker? Oh, right. My newly adjusted knees! I looked down at the clogs that made a clinking sound as they moved into place. Tink... Tink... Tink... Tink

death comes walking
catching her kill with her shinning gold eyes
her eyes that change with her mood
soft bluey green with sparkling speks of gold
light brown hair as she hunts, it changes to a coppery redish brown

she changes her look with every step
with her next meal on mind
she cons the man to follow

with not one touch taken, nor word spoken

Use a brush, and bring me to life.
Your pencil, my way into the world.
A camera click, and I'm immortalized.
Works of many, to create the one.
With stock or tablet, I'm virtually known.
Press play, and you shall direct.
Scalpel firm, to create my print.
With bright paper, I am creations of origami.
Forms of clay, I am any shape.
Threaded needles, stitch me firm and true.
Shaken cans, graffiti my emotions.
With a pen, I am your inner most thoughts.
All of these, are a part of who I am.

Foreword: I realize this may offend people. Part of me wants to wake up the masses; the other wants me to respect my friends' beliefs. I mean no malice toward people, especially those I care about.

Most people keep telling me that even though I am right I must continue with my work and strive for straight A's. They tell me that no matter how much bullshit is thrown into our faces, the youth of today and the leaders of tomorrow, we must totally be passive about the whole thing and just try and get through it. This passive attitude is what's screwing everyone over! We go to school for years, complain about school for years, suffer sc

the idea of invisibility sounds magical,
but in reality, is it as sweet as it may be?
The truth is
You do not know whether you wish yourself to be alive or dead,
because, because, there does not seem to be any point of you living.
Death will mean there is no hope to change this fact that you desperately hate,
but living will mean you will be dealing with the fallen hope everyday.
Nerves, emotions are stable to be forever grey,
except when the tiny hope of someone caring,
rises up and come crushing down on you again,
leaving a deep, fresh scar that does not seem to heal.

The wicked tongues of distrusting traces
Lacking faith and integrity
To sit and stay in our temple
Father, father tell me the story again
The little child in me asks again
The one with questions and answers to mend
The big book running the trails of shelves
Tell me, please tell me if you hate again
Cover your eyes and hide behind the wall of air
Watch the flame and eyes, they seek prey
It gives unwanted fame
What if you lost someone tonight
Would you still raise your arms
And put up a fight
Or would you run and cry
Tell your mother I'm all right
And stay up all night

Staring at my blue and cold feet
I step on the ice of confidence
It breaks in half and I sink
Through the ceiling
Wave goodbye my love
The time has come
I walk the white lines
In this forsaken world
A million kites hiding the sky
When the sunshine fights for its life
Wave goodbye my love
The time has come
Touch the rope and fall
In autumn I cry
The leaves say a faint sigh
Of this time
When I hide inside my eyes
Wave goodbye my love
The time has come
Touch the rope and fall
Inside these eyes I weep
Playing hide and seek
Time flies past me
The kites took her away from here
Wave goodbye my love

Atheism: An essay I am an atheist. Atheism is not a religion. There is no assigned moral code; each atheist has his or her own personal morals. There are no written texts giving guidelines to life for atheists. Some acclaimed atheists might just be lazy and want to escape from the responsibility that comes with believing in a god and feeling guilty for blasphemy committed. In that case, I think that this person is not atheist, but just a pathetic human being who doesn't like to take responsibility for their actions. Sure, atheists do not believe in the existence of a god, but does this mean that they lack morals because they do not follow teachings of aAtheism: An essay6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

1. Can Evolution and God Coexist?
Evolution and God cannot comprehensibly coexist. It is a complete nonsensical idea, and is only ever suggested on the behalf of the christian, who realising the in-deniability of evolution, tries to cling to some 'fiat' life raft.
Evolution is a theory, tested and proven/observed that very accurately and brilliantly raises our consciousness to the fact that complicated things (such as humans) arrive 'on the scene' after a very very very long and very gradual process (the process of evolution). Evolution shows how an

Hostility towards the program terragen has always been present, and most likely, always will be. But let's get down to brass tacks. What is terragen? It's a 3d scenery generator. Right. There's no real Modelling process involved per se, and it looks and works completely different (to all means and purposes of the majority) to a 3d modelling application such as 3d studio max or Maya. It is comprised of a series of mostly numerical controls, and a few random generators based on numerical/slider inputs.
...this means, it's an easy program, and requires little or no effort to pull off good results.

An Explanation of My AtheismA lot of people wonder whether god exists or if we should even take the concept of god seriously on an intellectual level. As an atheist, I'm going to try to tackle those questions in this essay. First, I am going to attempt to justify a set of three criteria I believe should be applied to any claim or assertion. After that, I am going to try to apply those criteria to the concept of "god" in order to illustrate that we should not take the concept of god seriously.An Explanation of My Atheism5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

The ghost of my childhood dashes past
She cannonballs into the water
