The Dome

Want to talk science, but can't get your buddies out of the pub? Science cocktails to the rescue!

I'm one of those people who just loves science, and wants everybody else to love it too. Unfortunately, many of my friends are more interested in imbibing fermented fruit juices and hanging out in pubs. And thus, in an effort to meet them halfway, have fu...

Plato's Student

A gypsy fortune teller inspires an old man to change his life and become a philosopher

I want, very much, for God and Science to reconcile. What I mean by this is that I want God to come off His holy highness and exist in a way that is congruent with the reality around us mortals. I want Science to quit being so dogmatic and narrow minded,...

The Mountain, The Sea, The Hell, and The Heaven

A short collection of poems on adult ideas for anyone of any ages to delve into.

How well do we ever know someone?

So, I don't know why, but I got to thinking today...(I know scary huh?) How well do we ever really know anyone? I know its not a new question by any means, and no doubt there have been many papers, books, letters, stories and so on written about this very...

Is it better to travel in hope than to arrive?

Means vs. Ends, Process vs. Outcome, East vs.West...it's deep!

“It is better to travel in hope than to arrive..”I heard this quote from a thoughtful man who had heard it in the past. He apparently was well traveled, as the quote had an Eastern cast. It suggests that unlike in the West where we emphasize the goal, per...
