Thoughts on Belief and Priorities

If there is a god, what happened to all the visits? Did god decide not to visit anymore, or is it just a story? I mean, back in the day the guy kicked around on earth a ton, now nothing? Seems more like a way uneducated people described things they didn't understand, or dealt with day to day life, in a really shitty time.

One Atheists Diatribe

The stigma of inherited belief, is nothing more than a mind thief. It's a psychedelic experience, without medicinal assistance. Like believing a car engine can work, without pistons. Faeries and unicorns have more place in science, but their elusion from the fossil record is utter defiance. God can help you find your keys and ensure your teams victory, all the while allowing cancer and aids in a baby. That magic sky wizard who favors one nation, but not the fracturing of his whole creation. Religion is the denial of the finality of your existence. The persistence and insistence, denying the universes time and distance. Our coexistence is dependent on the extraction of ignorance. The brilliance of our species, hindered by a sickness. With the genetic imperfection in my own body, how can I conclude intelligent design is even a possibility?


I'm not sure where this world is going, but the destination appears bleak. If we don't drop our petty squabbles over who we love, who we worship, and what lowlife is the coolest on TV, we will fail as a species. Maybe not in my lifetime, but not too far in the future. Species we depend on are already in the final throws of extinction. Weather patterns are changing. Working a good job, to barely survive, has become the norm. Our political systems do not support the people, but a small fraction. We work, to ensure the lifestyles of those in power. We work, in fear of losing our jobs. Fearing the day we step out of line, and everything comes crashing down. Free time. family time, and needed rest have been replaced with profit margins and deadlines. Why waste what little free time we do get, being told we aren't good enough? Why waste what little money we have paying for a building, that is useless without the people that visit it once a week? Why waste breath on words whispered into the stars, when action is what we most need?


Thanks for listening.

Canalside is the place to be.

It seems I am behind the curve here, but I just spent some real time, for the first time, walking through canalside in Downtown Buffalo. I'll let my photos do the talking.

Pokemon GO - Insanity has struck WNY




     So the hot topic this week, and for a long time going forward likely, is Pokemon GO. This game has gotten more people off the couch that needed a walk, in the history of gaming, ever. I see more people walking around that likely haven't seen sunlight in 10 years, taking exceptionally long walks now. People meet up at monuments, read the monuments descriptions, learn things. Yeah, people will abuse it and be stupid with it, but this is a real force of good. People getting exercise, playing games, seeing the outside of their house, and meeting new people. That's what it's all about.

     What amazes me most is the age ranges I have seen. People from the ages of 6 to 60 appear to want to "Catch them all". This, being a huge part of my own childhood, warms my heart. I put both my children on the Pokemon path years ago, and now they cant get enough of the cards and helping daddy find those AR Pokemon.

     Even local businesses are reporting a boost in traffic, especially those near gyms and pokestops, so overall, I think this is a good thing. As with everything though, in moderation.

Just made Blogger my new home

Well, it looks like I am moving my blog over from Wordpress to Blogger, as Wordpress and Google Domains don't get along. The import over went ok, but Blogger does not adjust photos to fit in the post area. I have corrected a bunch of my recent posts, but I feel this is going to take a while to completely bring everything over. The photo's aren't even hard linked to blogger, they are still linked to the Wordpress. I was getting sick of Wordpress charging me for everything, including mapping a domain I already owned. Anywhoo, that's it for now.
