Historical Jesus: Unscientific

I’ve been researching the “Historical Jesus“. His existence really doesn’t motivate me one way or the other, its not like finding out there was a man named Jesus is going to convince me he was God, but it’s a story that is culturally relevant to our story. I personally believe Jesus was a Myth, it just makes since to me, the theory that he was a composite of some kind, really adds up.



But I wanted to know exactly how the professional historians come up with the “Historical…

Fathers Day Extravaganza

1. Fathers and Sons

Over the past few days we've really gotten to know each other better.  He's been tested and currently places on the mild end of the ASD scale (I'm likely right there with him) - thanks non-existent God.  So the little guy doesn't take too well to…

The Sunday Planet - June 10, 2012

Angry America

The two big stories this week revolve around the leaking of classified national security information, whether it was deliberate or not, and the recall election in Wisconsin.

The "leak" is a perfect example of political asshattery. The argument revolves around whether this was a deliberate political move by the current administration. …

Someday Soon

Someday, Someday Soon,

We’ll all go to the moon.

To the moon.

They said it was crazy

when wingless man looked up at the sky

and said “We can Fly!”

They said, “Your crazy as a Loon!”

But up they went in a balloon.



Someday, Someday Soon,

We’ll all go to the moon.

To the moon.

They tried in vain

To maintain the mundane

And it worked for a while

But the future is here

Resistance is futile. …

FLYING

One might think that winged angels flying about is a christian invention but no, it's a very human wish, maybe almost an obsession, for men since milleniums.

In greek mythology, Icarus, trying to escape from his  tower jail, made wings out of feathers and wax and flew out supposedly gaining altitude, and "getting nearer the sun" the wax melted and he fell into the sea...  Now an island inhabited by the Icarians, bearing his name, is in the Aegian sea.

So, there is nothing new…

The Diaries of Eve and Adam (Eve the World's First Scientist)

I just finished reading the personal diaries of Eve and Adam - you know, the original humans.  It would appear that Mark Twain discovered the original manuscripts and succeeded to translate the ancient hieroglyphs somehow (perhaps he used a top hat) and published them to the world.  I will be the first to say that we are truly indebted to him.  I can't imagine why…
