'A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.'
If you are a conspiracy theorists, which you are entitled to, I will always protect your right to be one... just don't call me “a coward, and a liar, and a thief."
Forty-six years ago today, Apollo 11 delivered the first humans to walk on a celestial body besides the Earth. On July 20th, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin each spent over two hours on the surface of the Moon gathering samples. Collecting 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of rocks that day made both men instant, worldwide heroes. But despite the fact that we can literally shine lasers on the pieces of spacecraft we left on the Moon and see the reflecti...

NO, IT'S NOT YOUR OPINION. YOU ARE JUST WRONG! "This is my opinion" does not preclude a connected statement from being dead wrong.

Obviously, there is nothing wrong with having opinions. But the problem comes from people whose opinions are actually misconceptions. For instance, if you think vaccines cause autism, you are expressing something factually wrong, not an opinion. The fact that you may still believe that vaccines cause autism does not move your misconception into the realm of valid opinion. Nor does the fact that many others share this opinion give it any more validity.

Welcome to the world of what is labeled a "bipolar disorder."

"...when people hear this (or read of it in your case), they will have absolutely no concept of how this feels, how much it hurts (and it really fucking hurts I can tell you) or what the implications are. They'll just say "oh dear, sorry to hear that. I'm sure something will work out" or a cheerful "Bummer! Hope it works out!".

Ain't that true. PLEASE THINK about it next and every time you are about to say and/or do something! PLEASE! At least make an effort.

I propose to consider the question, "Can machines think?" This should begin with definitions of the meaning of the terms "machine" and "think."

Walking off into the Sunset...
Introduction
  • I am... 
  • I am fiercely private.  
  • I am fiercely loyal.   
  • I am an elitist and an epicure.  
  • I am an epicurean elitist.  
  • I am compulsive about everything I think, feel, say and do.  
  • I am a photographer without a camera.  
  • I am a painter without a brush.  
  • I am a musician without an instrument.  
  • I am a deceptively keen listener and observer.  
  • I shall not judge...I don't hold a gavel.  
  • I shall never censor myself just to comfort one's ignorance and intolerance.  
  • I shall not debate what is not debatable.  
  • I shall not talk unless I have something substantive to say, and even then, only I choose if, or when, to say it...and to whom.
  • I shall write, post and share any new and original content almost exclusively to a private and very limited circle(s).
  • I shall only post and re-share publicly mainstream content of my choice.
  • I show up.  
  • I question...   
  • I do...   
  • I make...   
  • I share...  

Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said that "we are entitled to our own opinions, but we are not entitled to our own facts." However, too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.  
We should always feel compelled to identify that many issues in any debate are not actually debatable, but rather easily known facts. Too many people are simply denying the obvious.

"Before deciding to share publicly our thoughts and opinions, we need the kind of objectivity that makes us forget everything we have heard and read, clear the table, and do a factual study like any scientist would."   

"Truth is truth even if no one believes it. A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it." 

"No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar."  - Abraham Lincoln  

"All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose."    

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."  - Calvin Coolidge
