    Happy Birthday Mr. Nice (MichaelB21)

    Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone! Aida, when did you move to Puyallup? My home town is Federal Way, not too far from Puyallup. I hope you like Washington!

    I guess it's time for my 1 post a year.....

    I really hope that you do not become a police officer. Someone who has stated that they would kill their child if God told them to should not be handling a weapon or possess any type of authority (minister would have been bad enough). Based on your disgust of logic and reason I fail to see how...

    The Official what book have you read lately thread?

    The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker. So far it is excellent, I hadn't read any of his works until now.

    The Official what book have you read lately thread?

    Godless by Dan Barker. Thus far it is incredible and I can't believe I didn't read it sooner. For those of you that don't know Dan Barker was an evangelical hellfire-and-brimstone Protestant preacher for something like 19 years. The book recounts his religious exploits including a successful...

    21st Bday

    If your friends are actually friends they will get you trashed, of course you can't complain about how they go about doing that. Now if you were to go out and buy yourself a bottle as a birthday present I'd tell you to get some Jagermeister and have fun. Oh and always tip your...

    Just started The Triumph of Evolution & The Failure of Creationism by Niles Eldredge. The Evolution of God by Robert Wright was superb I'd recommend it to anyone who cares more about facts on the ground than tradition.

    R.I.P. Brittany Murphy

    Until an official autopsy is conducted and results analyzed we can't rightly say what happened. A seemingly perfectly healthy girl on my high schools swim team died of cardiac arrest during a routine practice, she was one of the top swimmers on the team and had a clean bill of health and...

    Planet Earth on Blu ray = cheap!

    It's a great series, filled with some of the latest and greatest footage and theories. However I will say that it is a shame that despite the myriad of documentaries and books narrated and written by David Attenborough that he is still far from a house hold name even though everyone knows his...

    Tim Durham being investigated by FBI

    You're right. It wasn't any decipherable language.

    The Official what book have you read lately thread?

    Glad to hear you enjoyed it. You should pick up his latest work, The Greatest Show on Earth (though I'd also suggest any of his other books). Presently reading Wild Thoughts From Wild Places by David Quammen. It is a good book, though I'd say I enjoyed Flight of the Iguana by him more.

    "2012" 5 Minute preview

    European germs killed off far more of the "heathens" than Spanish guns and steel did. Small pox spread into Indian villages and chiefdoms from its initial spreading point in South America all the way up into North America and killed enormous amounts of people before a Spaniard even set foot...
