This blog will include my unkempt thoughts on science, politics, music, wombats and cats. Breaks will be allowed for attending to your real job, naps, thirst and fatigue. Greetings.

And unto them a blog was born, and lo....

Yesterday I ran across a posting by some self-described christian who was lambasting some other christians for casting a (hands over junior's ears now!) gay actor in the role of someone who was "martyred". The post included a sly statement that I felt contained a threat of violence to the filmakers. Subsequent postings upped the ante by adding gobs of homophobia and stirring in some inter-christian hatred that would warm the hearts of bigots everywhere.
My first thought was to join the string. Instead I decided to blog. I've been a fan of Pharyngula, Jesus' General, Fafblog and others for some time now and I figure it's time to stop lurking and start talking. From the beginning America has been one big tussle between Puritans and Rationalists. I'll put my money on the side of reason.

Well, that's a $1.00 down the drain. Better chances with the Lottery, really.

'cept the lottery is both repeatable and optional. Putting your money on the sky pilots gives the same odds as burning your money on the street on the way to buy your lottery ticket.
