Leave it to a question about nihilism to attract a crowd willing to die on a hill for literally everything and nothing at the same time. The question in question was of the troll variety, asking if Christians can be nihilists. Nihilism is broadly defined as the rejection of all religious and moral principles, upholding… Continue reading ICDTAD: Kevin, Sweetie/Arun, Hon
Ever heard the phrase, "learn to internet"? Once upon a time, when I worked in a mobile carrier's call center, a curious behavior cropped up more than once. I would tell people the web address for the company, and next thing I know I'm being read ads for multiple carriers at crazy once-in-a-lifetime discounts and… Continue reading Rapid-Fire Rabid Faithfuls
Besides the 25 cents, there's only two periods in this entire block of text. Have a evolution requires proof that it has been in place this cannot be proven are we finest quite the opposite and just as God says there’s nothing new under the sun and again I would ask you can you show… Continue reading Incoming?

With apologies to Danielle Bunten Berry. To address these points in reverse order for no particular reason: “Just out of curiosity.” Bullshit. Feel free to prove me wrong, though. “If the Bible never existed, would you be more likely to believe in a creator?” You mean like all the other religions, including the ones that… Continue reading Apple’s Coke M.U.L.E.
Disclaimer: There's been a rather major revelation (no pun intended) in the time between when this was written and when it's being posted. Suffice to say, he's dug himself a very deep hole that spells out the word "shallow" when viewed from above. There are more entries in this series, but they're needing practically top… Continue reading Pwager Ewert’s Safe Bet (A Prologue)
Another day, another "plz subz my chanel!!!" question-that's-not-actually-a-question on Quora. It's a fairly straightforward demonstration of a total lack of self-awareness, how the same people who get the most irked by spam often espouse a fair bit of it themselves. On this particular day, though, someone took it a step further. To be fair, the… Continue reading Dumb With A Capital Duh
I've started work on another entry about the notion of refusing to hear certain arguments or suggestions, not because of deliberate ignorance, but simply to avoid wars of attrition (that is, it's a bad argument the first time you've heard it, so why would the hundredth time be any different?). By coincidence, I get a… Continue reading Virtual Insanity
My entry about Fortran Caliber came alongside a similar post from another user, this time about the marketing angle of YouTube as understood by people who know nothing about marketing, or learned it from Tom Arnold. That last part isn't fair, and I'm sorry, Tom. This all carries on from what I said before about… Continue reading Heart Work (Right Chamber)
I hate the phrase "1% Inspiration/99% Perspiration." I understand it, and I don't disagree with it in principle, but too many people assign the wrong values to its numbers. As a wise one once said, "Numbers don't lie. People do." Think about it. What exactly do those percentages represent? Are they time spent on a… Continue reading Heart Work (Left Chamber)
Probably going to get banned from Quora for this one. I don't care anymore.
