Evolution is a Lie?

It seems that in certain parts of the world, the theory of evolution is taught openly and freely in schools, colleges and universities. It has been noted that in many of these places it goes unchallenged and is allowed to proliferate freely, and to be entertained by many. It seems that this scientific theory is taught as openly and soundly as the theory of thermodynamics.

Is this right?

A Long Awaited Hello

Dear Regular Readers,

I must apologise for the fact that i have not blogged in a very long time, and that i have been, for nearly two months, without ranting, raving, moaning, scowling, praising, pleasing or being pernickety. TO occasional and new readers, i apologise i haven’t upload anything to entice you in, for more to enjoy and read. However, today i come with good news. I come with a new sister blog, a blog that will not replace, take all my attention or destroy the nature of this blog. This blog is the mother ship, and all side projects must be for the good of this blog. So i promise to get writing immediately, i have a few ideas in the pipeline.

But while you wait, i have been working on a sister site which can only engage you a bit more, with light humour, crappy drawings and a good old fashioned comic feel. I guess you’ve guessed it.

Yes today i am launching OOPComics. The series i am currently working on is Jesus and Joe, a strip about the life of Jesus and joe, two unlikely flat mates, a religious leader, and a staunch atheist. So please follow the link here, or find it later on the main page on the left hand side.

If and when you view the comics, please let me know what you think, everything helps to refine the humour, styling and everything else that makes a good comic. also if you love it, say you love it, all feedback is good and necessary feedback.

SO a happy late new year, and i look forward to hear what you think of the new comics, and cant wait to get writting again.

All the best

Astrology

Moon, Stars, Moon and stars, Night sky, space, cosmos, universeI find it increasingly confusing, and wonderfully curious why people today still believe in the fantasy of astrology, and believing that we are somehow controlled and destined by the stars so far away. And its not as if it is a small operation of a few people performing and making up stories based on cold reading divination. No, astrology and star signs are in magazines, newspapers, on key-rings, on the internet and on certain television stations. How, in all that is logical, is this industry still going? How are people still buying into the practise of believing that their lives and personalities are dictated by the stars?

Change of Heart, I’ve Seen the Light!

see the light, light at the end of the tunnel,My past two posts have been sort of “off the wall,” and not seeming to have any real grounding in my normal and usual topics. But how many times can one write about the travesties of religion, the wonders of science and nature, the amazing power of humans and our scientific endeavours and our amazing frontiers? Well actually I could write an enormous amount, but that’s not the point. Why have I been writing these whimsical stories of my life? well for a very important reason. Ideological people assuming I have no ‘faith’ or love for humans, and that I don’t appreciate the world. Clearly these people have never read my posts, and have never actually looked at what an atheist, scientist, humanist and realist actually sees.

Midnight Strolls

david wilsdon, Midnight, evening, moon, Okay, so it is not strictly midnight when i went on this stroll this evening, but it was pretty late, 22:30 to be precise. So that is pretty late, especially on an english autumn evening, when the nights draw in pretty quickly. I usually go for evening walks, not because I’m some sort of night creature or anything like that, it is mainly because my dog requires to go to the bathroom before bed. However these walks give me time to listen to nothing but absolute silence and the thoughts whirling around in the tornado of my mind.

Who is God?

god in rays, clouds of godI have been thinking for a while about writing this post, but have had obstacles in the way of writing. These obstacles aren’t to do with this, it was obstacles like holidays, work, and the other things we have to do in our lives. I have decided to write this as a prequel  to my philosophical paper. I have mentioned before about this paper, but to restate,  it is an explanation to what is life. But in it I have to tackle God and or gods. You can’t answer life without tackling this most audacious of hurdles. I have outlined the idea of gods and religion before in previous posts, and why I think they are unnecessary. I have questioned religious authority outside this blog, and am frequently thinking on new ways of getting people to look at the facts.

Future of Humanity: Breeding Illness?

Doctor, patient, Family DoctorWe as a species are one of the most caring animals on the planet. Like most primates we look after our young, teach them life skills and protect and care for them. But we don’t just stop there, we keep going right into a child’s adulthood, and caring for them even after then. We not only look after our young, our altruistic behaviour makes us look after other people, who we may not even know. This is demonstrated in our giving to charity, helping others in trouble and the fact that we have a society. If we didn’t respect each other, our society and civilisation would soon crumble. This altruistic behaviour is to be admired, for as a species it allows us to develop and grow into the species we are. It has given rise to medicine, it has generated industry and created  welfare systems. Altruism and a caring attitude is absolutely necessary for our existence. But has our caring, medicine and humanitarian attitude caused our existence to change, and change the face of our evolution. Is our love changing the power of survival of the fittest on us?
