Horton Hears a Who 09.07.2014

We just finished watching Horton Hears a Who and it left me with a distinct bland aftertaste. The movie had it's funny moments, I guess, but what struck me was the all too often present hollywood sentiment of, "Just believe things on faith". The insidious part of it being, that the viewer doesn't need faith to accept the lead's claims because s/he has all of the evidence for said claim already laid bare! This sets up an incredibly skewed world in which any person portraid as a rationalist/skeptic (,usually very poorly I might add,) come off as an utter asshole for not accepting something which is, for the viewer, obviously true.

Thank you Lord for this day 07.24.2012

Thank you Lord

People don't think about what they say. I can imagine that it feels good to think that somewhere out there a supreme being actually cares for little old you, but indirectly, you are also cool with other people being treated with the utmost cruelty.

So do you really think God wanted to provide you with nice sunny weather on your day out, while he seemingly allows countless of women being tortured and raped in other countries?

Do you really believe God has the power to make the universe conspire into making you pass your test, get that job and get that pay raise, while he seemingly allows countless children to starve to death?

Please don't hide behind "free will" and "it is up to us as a people to treat eachother better" because that does nothing to address the ultimate question "Do you believe God had actively anything to do with your life?" because that would also mean that God has an active role in the lives of others. Those others who get raped, mugged, murdered or born with defects long before they could actually have an effect on this earth, where was God in their lives?

You've guessed it "God works in mysterious ways" is not an answer.

Having a religion is 07.19.2012

Having a religion is kind of like having a penis: It can be nice to have, but not so good to shove it down a child's throats.

... You might want to wait a while before the kid can actually make up his/her own mind whether or not s/he likes pen.. uhm, religion

Entertainment funding science and technology? 07.11.2012

I've been re-watching StarTrek: Voyager and I keep wondering why we can't work toward a society that places more importance on discovering and developing lasting improvements to our quality of living instead of putting the emphasis on fleeting short sighted moments of personal entertainment.

That said, I thought it might be interesting to put some things side by side regarding entertainment v.s. science & technology resource wise and the results were.. interesting.
