This is great.
Sometimes, it’s the little things. I got an email the other day from someone who works with Google, telling me some cool news: They’ve updated their search results about health conditions. They now provide information that’s curated and vetted by doctors, including the Mayo Clinic! That’s fantastic. So, for example,...

I have a little faith in humanity restored today. (Which is good, because I really needed it.)

What's your favourite Spock moment?
In addition to acting, Mr. Nimoy directed films; published poetry, autobiographies and books of photography; and recorded music.

"Vulcans never bluff"

What's so sad, for me, is how recent his public announcement that he had COPD was prior to his death. COPD is a long, debilitating disease, it doesn't kill you in a year. I simply had no idea he was so near death, and that's why it hits so hard. I had hoped against hope he'd see the 50th anniversary, maybe make a token video appearance at a con...

RIP, not my friend, but through Spock, my role model. If this world ever wakes up to logic and rejects superstition and myth, it will be inspired by Spock.

Not only is someone wrong on the Internet, they're also very angry while they're at it.

<The popular Lebanese show Ktir Salbe showed a skit where a taxi driver picks up an Islamic State fighter who asks that the radio be turned off because this technology did not exist in the early days of Islam. When the driver suggests turning off the air conditioning because it did not exist in the early days of Islam, the fighter refuses and then starts talking on his cell phone, at which point the driver kicks him out and tells him to wait for a camel instead.>

The use of mockery and caricature is, in fact, in some ways far more pronounced in the Middle Eastern media than it is in Europe

Introduction
This is my personal account and any posts or comments I make using it reflect my own opinion, and do not represent my employer or anyone else.

I speak English, 廣東話, فارسی, and  , and can read Pāḷi, संस्कृत, and a smattering of other languages.

I have graduate degrees in electrical engineering and computer science. I'm also a dropout from school. Yes, it's possible to have graduate degrees and still be a dropout. That's just how awesome I am.

I used to teach logic and I'm writing a book on it.  I try very hard not to argue with people online (what's that saying again about wrestling with pigs?), but if you argue with me, I claim the right to use your argument as a textbook example of poor reasoning. 

My view of religion is an academic one which is purely evidence-based. What I know about religion, I learned from university professors and textbooks used in university courses. Most popular books on religion (both apologetics literature and anti-religious screeds) are full of factual and logical errors. If your view of religion differs from mine, instead of wasting your time trying to convert me, I suggest you write up your findings and get it published in a peer-reviewed academic journal in religious studies. Otherwise, I'm going to stick with the evidence as reviewed and interpreted by professional experts.
