And I smell nice, that is. My eye does, anyway, since Puikei sprayed perfume at my eye. Still stingy.

      I'm sorry, but, Christopher Paolini never existed on my profile. If he did, it was a rant about how bad he is.

I thought of you since you know, you love Fox.

Anthology of Intellectual Oddities: A Many Rants On All Things Controversial

Heh, science is my religion. It explains the world and provides my moral code. What else could I ask for?

Alright. Just to let you know, this took an hour of brainstorm scribbling, an hour to type up, an hour to edit, and five days to procrastinate. Then one hour to erase everything and start from scratch. Anyways:

Harrison Bergeron is my favorite short story [b]evar[/b]!!, aside from [i]For Esme with Love and Squalor[/i] (where Lemony Snicket got Esmé Squalor from), which is a bit longer [b]and[/b] beautiful.

But first of all, science is a bit more than discovering natural phenomenons. Where do you think light bulbs or cars came from? Or even simple levers, or knives? [Technology!] Of course gravity worked before Newton. Newton was just the first one to [b]describe[/b] gravity in a mathematical model which allows us to then apply it on a planetary, stellar model, of the universe. But even he didn't get it right- Einstein was the genius who *discovered* general relativity. But God plays a huge part in the laws that govern the universe. The universe, which physicists have attempted to reduced into The Four Forces (gravity, electromagnetic, strong-internuclear, and weak-radioactive), and biologists have compiled to study on the most complex level (life), is really a fragile thing. There really are no guarantees that [b]anything[/b] has to work the same way they had for the last 14 billion years; we're all taking God's word that our atoms won't suddenly fail. But everything still follows the rules: high concentration to low, positive charge attracts negative, whatever.

(I don't know if you're watched or read [i]The Elegant Universe[/i] about the string theory and how the Big Bang might be a collision of three-dimensional “branes” of stretched superstrings, which would mean that it was bound to happen, so I suggest you watch this → , Hour 3, 'Riddle of the Big Bang'. I find the narrator Brian Greene quite funny myself; that's the biggest reason I would goto Columbia. Still, it's a pretty nerdy show. : D)

Which takes me to the creation of life. Since life is, on the lowest level, self-replicating structures who defy the entropy of the universe, it's really not that surprising. When deconstructed into chemical components, the cell membrane are fats that arrange themselves into bilipid layers because of hydrophilic/ hydrophobic properties. DNA splits into two; the correct bases match themselves up. Proteins are made by amino acids that match to each RNA sub-unit. Of course, what results is a whole that's greater than the sum of its parts, but I don't believe life is that unique. Despite the ominous suggestions of the Drake equation (which states this → #The_equation ), there are still billions of stars in the universe. Somewhere, certain chemicals will find a way to replicate its structure of atoms, not conciously yet, but because of mechanisms similar to the one that creates whirlpools when a container is emptied- we're all falling towards order.

In Jurassic Park, “Life will always find a way.” Against all odds, life will fight for its right to exist. I believe that religion was developed as a survival mechanism to allow humans to endure hardships, unite for a common defense, and practice rituals that promote sanitation (like burying the dead), promote hard work, and denounce actions that harm the community (like murder). All its teachings, at least the ones that didn't involve slavery and other controversial matters, continue to be a major influence in the general public's morality. And religion has served its purpose: humanity has survived [b]spectacularly[/b], don't you think?

Themes such as kindness, charity, and family are prevalent in all major wold religions; which is probably why they've survived- because its followers helped each other during times of trouble under the theory of altruism. Christianity isn't alone in that. However, when extremists condemn evo

Frank, you filled up my screen with pure WORDS. Nothing fills up my screen with text unless it's Ketsia's stupid 1800's essays. I literally had to scroll down for 3 seconds before I realized that you wrote all this.

The complete response might take a while to compose... quite epic.

That sounds good. Like doublethinking college applications instead of examining your GPA in scrutinizing detail, everyday, like some people do. I try to do that, but the peer pressure of wail at unchanging grades is overwhelming at times.

I agree; the Westing Game is definitely amazing; I rather like the Book Thief by Zuzak more than Messinger though. The style is just special. And diaspora-immigration-American dream-epics like Middlesex and Kavalier and Clay are great as well as Pulitzer prize winners. I need to read Kurt Vonnegut though; I've only read Harrison Bergeron, and that's kind of short.

Have you watched Zeitgeist yet? I'm warning you, be mentally prepared for it. Or you might hate me forever.

"Ah, San Diego. Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's v****a."
"No, there's no way that's correct."
"I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago."
"Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?"

By the way, start with this one -->

It's the second part of Part II, so you can skip the straightforward blasphemy and go right to the astronomy bits. Then you can move up if you feel brave enough.
