Book Review “Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation”

As a science fan and former Christian (now I would describe myself as an agnostic atheist with strong Zen leanings), I am always puzzled by Creationism, that part of Christianity that believes that God created the earth either 6,000 or 10,000 years ago, and that the story of Noah and the Flood is real history, […]

Know When to Fold ‘Em

Oh my oh my, it has been an interesting few months, to say the least, which is why I haven’t posted anything since my ode to Robin Williams after his death back in August 2014.  “Interesting” probably isn’t really the best word….“insane” is probably a little closer to reality.  To catch up a little on what happened, […]

Leaving Facebook? Inconceivable! Or Maybe Not?

A little over one week ago, I made the decision to stop spending ANY time on Facebook, and it’s been both a challenging and a rewarding decision.  Admittedly, I haven’t actually deleted my account yet, nor even inactivated it; for the moment, I’ve simply deleted the account and all apps (including Messenger) from my iPhone, […]

An Example of Why I Love Science

Quick post today, not really thought-provoking on my part, but a simple example of why I absolutely love science and am so grateful to be living in the times that we do.  And while the technology that you see in the video is not necessarily new, it is the merging of methodologies and technologies that […]
