What I Learned from Jerry Springer

What I Learned from Jerry Springer

Since I can't work/go to school I usually watch t.v. throughout the day. Usually it's scientific stuff, but every once in a while it's something ridiculous like Jerry Springer. I know it sounds odd but when you watch it as much as I do you begin to notice a pattern. Of course I know there are exceptions. 1. Once a cheater, always a cheater. It always amuses me when a story starts with "Well (s)he's cheated on me before...". Gee, really? Why didn't you leave the first time? Some adults are like children: if they think can get away with it, they'll keep doing it. 2. If you get rejected by your lover, don't expect your spouse to take you back.

'Judge not lest ye be judged'

Every once in a while (mostly on Facebook) I come across some athiest-bashing hootsba. Every time I do, I can't help but wonder if they remember that simple line from Matthew 7:1: "Judge not lest ye be judged." It always amuses me that me, an athiest, a "heathen" can remember that when a Bible-thumper can't (or rather: chooses not to).

So I get e-mails from democrats.org sometimes- I'm not one, but politically I lean to the left. I recently recieved one that would've made me laugh out loud if I wasn't mute. As  most people know, Trump lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College. Well, he's claiming everyone who didn't vote for him voted "illegally". ... ... I ...  just ... what? I didn't vote for him, and my vote was sure as hell legal: I'm a natural-born American citizen and I have the right to vote via the 19th Amendment. This nutjob reminds me of some people I knew once: if somebody didn't like them, it must be a conspiracy!

Don't Stoop To Their Level

Recently  I got into a little spat on Facebook with one of my Facebook friends (let's call him Walter) about something he posted: he basically told religious people that when they're bowing to their god they can kiss his ass. Now I'm an athiest too, but unlike some athiests (Walter included) I believe whatever someone believes is fine. As long as they aren't hurting anyone/being a dick I really don't care. Criticizing someone for their beliefs makes you nothing more than a hypocrite.

My hypothosis

I hear people talk about time travelling as jumping from 1 point to another; say, 500 years into the future in an instant. Well, what if the jumps are actually a lot smaller? My idea is so simple it's almost laughable, but the more you think about it the more it makes sense: Technically we're always time travelling, a second at a time, to the future. If we weren't, we'd just be frozen in space and nothing would ever happen. The way I see it, time travel is like accretion (planet formation): it doesn't happen all at once. Dust bits clump into rocks which become boulders, etc. Moreover, since time only goes in 1 direction (I think Einstein pos

My Issue with Dark Matter

My Issue with Dark Matter

Dark matter. The stuff that (allegedly) fills the universe, yet it cannot be seen, felt or detected. So what's out there? I understand it's hypothetical, but I tend to hear it talked about as theory (dictionary definition- a theory is a group of tested propositions; often confused with hypothesis). Personally I think dark matter is something basically made-up to make the equations work. It supposedly fills the universe and is responsible for it's expansion, but where is it? I realized I should probably do some more research first, so I turned to Wikipedia. "Dark matter... accounts for most of the matter in the universe." "... inferred..." "

I've been quadriplegic and mute for a few years now, and there's typically 2 things people (incorrectly) assume when they meet me: that I'm hard of hearing (all your yelling is doing is making you look like an idiot) or that I'm stupid (1 2 4 8 16 32 64...). It's annoying, but I get it so I don't get too mad; I wasn't disabled for the first 19 years of my life and probably would've done the same. Quite honestly, it makes me chuckle. These airheads either try to avoid me like I'm patient 0, talk to me really slow and really loud or assume I'm too stupid to understand them and address my caregiver instead. It's sad, really. Just because I'm in

Why do you care?

Please don't lecture me about this. After 20 years I will NOT change my mind. I've been an athiest for years, and one thing I've run into time and again is hate and bigotry. "You don't follow god, so you must worship Satan!" Um, no. I don't believe in Satan either. I don't believe in heaven/hell, angels/demons or the tooth fairy. I believe that when you die, nothing happens. "Then why do anything good?" Because it's the right thing to do. A REALLY big misconception is no god = no morals. Not so. I have morals, they're just not determined by a sky wizard that wipes out the planet in a world-class hissy fit. "Thou shalt not kill"- god is a GI
