Stuff and Such

22 Dec

Sorry to those of you wanting longer, rambling posts about my life here. Your welcome, to those who do do not (the majority I expect). I will be posting later on about my latest confrontations with religion and Jesus specifically, though not personally, once I’ve collected my thoughts on my last week of Christmas parties, child abuse, teaching and charity in a northern Thai village.

Meanwhile here are two Op-Eds that may be worth a gander, a video and a cool interactive map/history of Africa!

1. Larry David Gives Thanks To Congress and Obama

2.Ricky Gervais’ Holiday Message:

“Why don’t you believe in God? I get that question all the time. I always try to give a sensitive, reasoned answer. This is usually awkward, time consuming and pointless. People who believe in God don’t need proof of his existence, and they certainly don’t want evidence to the contrary. They are happy with their belief. They even say things like “it’s true to me” and “it’s faith.” I still give my logical answer because I feel that not being honest would be patronizing and impolite. It is ironic therefore that “I don’t believe in God because there is absolutely no scientific evidence for his existence and from what I’ve heard the very definition is a logical impossibility in this known universe,” comes across as both patronizing and impolite.”
