Tired of anti-vaccination nonsense? Move to Mississippi or West Virginia!
http://jonfwilkins.com/2015/02/hey-look-mississippi-and-west-virginia-lead-the-nation-in-something-good/
You know, most of the time when you hear “Mississippi leads the nation in . . .”, it is the lead-in either to a joke or a really depressing statistic. But check out this map from the Washington Post: All 50 states require vaccination, and all 50 provide for medical exemptions, which is good.

Now I'm wondering if the people who were disparaging Wilson to me were academic rivals of his and had a biased view of him.

New website platform now ready for your greasy little computer fingers.
http://jonfwilkins.com/2015/02/darwin-eats-cake-site-redesign/
When I first set up the website for Darwin Eats Cake, I used something called Comic CMS, an open-source content-management system written by “Steve H”. It's a really nice little thing, with a clean appearance, a friendly GUI, and built-in functionality for posting news, scheduling comic ...

Blessed is he who seeks all knowledge. (:

I thought it was unique when I understood it but I figured. "If I came to this conclusion of the studying the universe and others who seek truth study the same universe then we aught to have come to same/similar conclusions". Sure enough after looking into different religions including Christianity which I was raised up with and reading about the philosophies of the past and current scientific studies people were coming to the same conclusions. This conclusion that all is one or rather an expression of one. Comes in different names God, Allah, the Source, Krishna/Brahman, etc. all explaining this force which is the basis of all reality which exists in all places and through all things. We are living inside a super organism if you will. Not just that but we are this super-organism experiencing itself.
