I implore everyone who thinks this video is real to try it for themselves. Let's do a little gene pool clean up, shall we?

RIP Troy Davis. It's time to start evolving, America. We don't do that by holding onto the ideals of the bronze age. And by that, I don't only mean religion, but one of our many horrid ideas that religion has brought us: The death penalty. It's ridiculous that it's even allowed to be practiced. You cannot convict a person of a crime and then commit the same crime upon them without being the very definition of a hypocrite. Aside from all of this, with each new technological system that advances, we find new way of collecting and observing evidence and data. With these advancements comes another hundred cases that are reopened to find that the state murdered an innocent man in order to discourage murder. It's time to get our collective shit together and let go of the bronze age. It's brought us nothing of value. Let the antiquated be antiquated.

This has been observed for a very long time. It's neither new nor controversial. And if it is controversial, it's because ignorant people still see autism as a form of mental retardation, and it's quite the opposite. I have Asperger's Syndrome and I am an atheist. Many atheists I know suffer from mild forms of autism, and most autistic people I know are atheists. There is a connection, and we should stop rejecting it. Autism is nothing to be ashamed of. We're the next stage of evolution.

I'm rereading The Physics of the Impossible, while I prep myself for a new venture. The two are in no way related, but what's life without whimsy?

Why is nobody talking about the most recent hate-post to come out of the Christian Right?

Because we all need this reminder from time to time.

I find it interesting how long it's taken for g+ to really take off. It's infinitely more interesting than Facebook. The sparks alone allow me to be more connected to news without having to leave shouting range from those who seem to enjoy my rants.
