Censorship, Sorta

Alright, this one is about something that has plagued me for a long time. Right from the start, I should say that my opinions on this subject are definitely just opinions, I have even less of an idea in this than in other things. Also, it is very possible that my vision is clouded by my own passions and interests. A strong evidence for this is that the majority of adults whom I respect disagree with me. But the same was true of Luther. So try to keep that in mind as I continue. Continue reading

Argument from Logic

If anyone out there actually cares about this blog, then I apologize. It’s been like a month and half since I posted. Lately some things have captured my thoughts completely, and I only recently have started thinking about fun things again. This discussion is built off of a previous post that you can find here. There I attempted to demonstrate that free will cannot exist in a naturalistic universe. Well it’s not really built off it, but it is related and it would be good to keep in mind that free will doesn’t exist in naturalism.  Anyways. Here we go. Continue reading

Musicks: Zula

So, this new theme. I like it a lot, except for one thing. I think that it is very difficult to distinguish paragraphs. If anyone is out there looking at this, I would greatly appreciate a comment telling me whether you agree or not. (And no, I am unable to have a blank paragraph in between each real paragraph. WordPress deletes it.) Anyway, on to Zula. Continue reading

Is This Real Life?

No, I’m not talking about a certain boy who enjoys laughing gas, I’m talking about the nature of reality! A few months ago I tried to see how close to not existing the universe, and yourself, could possibly be. I’ve heard a few people do something similar, but I’ve never heard someone go as far as I have. I start with one assumption about the universe that makes it much simpler than it probably is: the cosmos consists only of particles and the like; there is no supernatural. I don’t agree with this, but it made the experiment much easier. I hope you can follow my absurdity, and I hope even more that you enjoy it. Continue reading

Different Worlds

Watch out non-Christians, you may not like this one, even though you should. You would if you are being objective. So try. Anyways, I am just going to make an observation that has most likely been made by billions before me, but oh well. I hear it is good to be reminded of things, and maybe it hasn’t been made billions of times. My observation is that there are many cultures of talents and hobbies (i.e. worlds), and usually people think theirs is far superior to anyone else’s. At least this is true of young people like me.

Omnipotence paradox

Wow. It has been a long time. Almost a month. I have been really busy and 1. haven’t had time to write thoughts down and 2. haven’t had any good thoughts. So I decided to talk about an old thought, the supposed paradox of God’s omnipotence, and really anything’s omnipotence. But since anything that is omnipotent is God, saying “anything’s omnipotence” and “God’s omnipotence” are the same thing. Anyways. On to the paradox. Continue reading

Musicks: NPR Tiny Desk Concerts

This time I am not sharing an album, a song, or an artist. NPR Music frequently puts on these cute “Tiny Desk Concerts” and presents them on their website and on Youtube, where I prefer to view them. They ask some of their favorite bands and artists to come over and perform two or three songs on whatever instruments they can bring. It is a very stripped down performance usually; rock bands bring acoustic guitars and basses and drummers would only bring one or two parts of their set. It’s great, you can really get an insight into the music and members’ personalities. Continue reading
