Yup. We need more rational thinking, and more critical thinking.
Yup, that Noah dude sure was a miracle maker!

…is the Internet! LOL!
- Guess what makes Josh McDowell cry?
The Internet is certainly a place where a lot of garbage can be found. But it is also a place where there is much valuable information. Access to this information, the knowledge gained, the application of critical thinking, these are the things that are leading people to discover the irrationality of religions and the realisation that a better life is experienced without religion’s cursed dogmatic and soul-destroying controls. The correct title of this article should really be “The greatest threat to Christianity is knowledge”. This is relevant http://www.jesusandmo.net/2011/07/20/books/
Josh’s arguments on sex and pornography are a red-herring; people, especially adolescents, are always interested in sex which is a pretty natural think to do if you think about it, and getting an education about it is pretty essential to help through the pangs of growing up. And there is always legislation and policing to ensure that unlawful content is made inaccessible…this has nothing to do with Christianity or religions but rather in our inherent morals. Yes, think of the children.
Anyway. Dump religion. Live free. Live happy.
Another examples of craziness; stupid Malaysian “justice”:
- Malaysian ‘teapot cult’ woman loses Islam legal bid
Additionally, as I have said before, no one is born a “Christian” or a “Muslim”. People may be born to parents who practice a certain religion but a new-born doesn’t know or care about religion. The parents and their religious machinations will then brainwash and indoctrinate that child into following their religion. And the above example with the Islamic-Malaysian system is an affront to justice. It doesn’t matter that much to me that the woman concerned wishes to practice another religion (that’s her choice even if I think she’s made an irrational decision), but the convoluted mess of leaving her indoctrinated religion, Islam, in the context of the Malaysian system is just plain nuts.
Got this from Jerry Coyne’s “Why Evolution Is True”:
- Amazon reviews of the Bible
Other books such as the Koran need to be similarly reviewed.

Just came across this video upload from richarddawkins.net of a lecture by Lawrence Krauss.
I lot of this I already knew but there was a wealth of information such as what happens inside a proton. Good stuff.
I recently posted about a particular Service Pack 1 improvement for Outlook 2010 at:
- Outlook 2010 Service Pack 1 and IMAP notifications
I can confirm that the other issue of “Your IMAP server closed the connection” messages is still there. Therefore I have reactivated the following AutoHotkey scrip:
#NoEnv ; standard AutoHotkey header
SendMode Input ; standard AutoHotkey header
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; standard AutoHotkey header
IfWinExist Microsoft Outlook, Your IMAP server closed the connection
I wish Microsoft could handle this error message in a more graceful manner than just putting up the error message and sitting there not doing anything except waiting for user input. Outlook should retry the connection and perhaps also put a message in the status area at the bottom of the Outlook window.
System config: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, Outlook 2010 (32-bit)

Please, please, please, please, please, Southampton University. Quality courses and critical thinking skills go a long way. Let’s keep the garbage out.
