Guess What I Got for Christmas!

My sweetie-pie gave me this. What a trip down memory lane for both of us.

Shimmies to John!

Color me jealous! Very nice. I mean, it's not the King James, but... ;P

What? He got you the cosmos? How much wrapping paper did it need?

Enjoy playing with it. If you find any bacteria in there, give 'em a flagellum.

Blipey! Hi! The King James Version is apocryphal and unreliable, I'm afraid. ;-)

Bob O'H! It didn't need any wrapping paper--it started out small and expanded of course!

We, and our wrapping paper, are all starstuff. :-)

Ah! You must tell me what you think of it.

I'm reading Finding Darwin's God ('cause I gave it to a relative "from Santa") and it's marvelous! But I haven't gotten to the end, yet. ;-)

I just finished reading The God Delusion by Dawkins. For me, he's largely preaching to the choir and, yet, I still foiund much that I could take away. Unfortunately, the people most in need of reading it are obviously not going to buy it.

If you're interested in seeing the arguments applied in the real world, I suggest watching the videos posted at RichardDawkins.net of a university talk that Dr. Dawkins give on his book. The second of the two is the Q&A session where absolutely dismantles some antagonistic arguments posed by students from nearby Liberty U (Jerry Falwell's school).

Oh, yeah - survived DLL Hell and got an "A". It was very cool but I'm sure glad that it's over now. I can read what I want to read!

Congratulations, PiGuy!

I can read what I want to read!

Me too! And write what I want to write.

I may post one of my short stories for New Year's Eve.

I used to own a copy - I didn't realize it was worth so much. It was one I had not read in ages so I sold a number of books a few years ago on ebay. It was that or build another bookcase and get a real job. I needed the money at the time.

I am reading Sartre: Existentialism and Human Emotion.

Amen.

Au dessous du monde, au dessou du monde, j'ai voulu dire! Comme le mythe.

Ah, il ne fait rien!


The hell with it. I meant to say, "But is it turtles all the way down?" Bad joke. Sorry.
