    “Inception” is just a fancy word for a beginning.

    When we let theists frame a discussion as one about “the creation of the universe,” we have let ourselves be led into a trap, because “creation” does tend to imply a “creator.”

    If we  say, “You mean the inception of the universe,” we are reframing the discussion into one that doesn’t presume or…[Read more]

    It seems obvious that there is an evolutionary bias toward sexual relations that can pass along genes, anything else is frivolous in a sense Humans evolved to be sexual WELL outside of their fertile zones. So yeah, you could call it “frivolous” in that sense but it has numerous other benefits than simple procreation. Passing on the…

    Is it possible that all men and women are fluid when it comes to our sexual orientation? I wonder if sexual orientation is even a “real” thing…

    If you ask me, it’s normal to be bisexual. People who are all straight are probably in the minority. Some men are attracted to Thai lady-boys, as a kind of third gender-orientation.

    In my vast experience, females are much more likely to consider engaging in same sex encounters as within the range of normality than males a…[Read more]

  • But it bears mentioning that bacteria and viruses are kickass killers. Think about the plague…Spanish flu…malaria…yellow fever…newly evolved super bugs.

    Indeed, the most dangerous critter on the planet is the humble mosquito.

  • When we say “particles can exist in 2 states simultaneously ” (the double slit experiment) we seldom continue to say that both particles cannot be measured simultaneously.

    But does a particle in two different states simultaneously exist in two different worlds?

  • I’m still wondering if a conscious being is required, or, for example, does an earthquake both happen and not happen? I haven’t really found a quantum theorist addressing this question.

  • As typically explained, the so-called “many worlds theory” holds that the world is always branching, and a typical sort of example might be something like this: confronted with the option of having pie after dinner, you either accept the offer or you don’t. But actually you do both according to the theory. In one world you accept the pie and in a…[Read more]

    A lot of artists seem to be in the business to see how much bullshit they can get away with. The word “art” used to be roughly equivalent to “skill” or “craft.” I’ll stick with that idea. Compared to a Vermeer, that painting is nothing less than an assault on a perfectly good sheet of canvas.

  • Prescription and street drugs both or one or the other. What rules would you apply (age limits, etc.)? For example, would you also want to legalize discrimination against drug users by landlords and employers?

    I ask, because clearly the illegality of street drugs, for one thing, empowers the street gangs, giving them a business model.

     

  • It sure is starting to look like authoritarianism is on the rise. And especially if Putin gets The Ukraine.

  • Is it known what caused the hypoglycemia? Side effect of blood thinner? Somehow related to heart condition, surgery or anesthesia? Prior history of hypoglycemia? Have you or will you change your diet or activity?

  • There is a PostLog.

    Last Wednesday, while in the midst of steady recovery from my heart attack, I experienced a hypoglycemia crisis, passed out for a few minutes, and woke up with blood on my pants as well as on the floor. I had opened a small wound on my left elbow but am on blood thinners which greatly inhibit clotting.

    Somehow, during the…[Read more]

    Lately on TV are many ads for one or two companies offering ways to refinance student loan on better terms.

    HOWEVER, now that there’s talk of a blanket forgiving of sudent loans, I suspect that anyone who shifts their debt from the government program to one financed by a private loan company might be left out in the cold. Think twice before refinancing.
