Atheism on the mind…

I have had a debate with almost all of my Christian friends by now, and every time I do, I have to start over with them: They all say something different.

I have read the bible, and I have interpreted it the way the book reads… If I have a question about a particular passage in it, I have asked one of my friends for an explanation. All my friends say something that either isn’t answering the question, or is 110% different from what another person of the same religion says for the same question.

Compare this to Atheists. I have never once meet an Atheist who has a different answer for ANY question about our origins, or God, ever. Our knowledge is set in Science which is repeatable and proven only in testing: It cannot be misread or misinterpreted and if it can, it is not considered proof, and is then tested further.

How truthful can something be if you never get the same answer? If a series of video cameras say that the criminal was wearing a black shirt, why would you deny that evidence and listen to the twelve people who say “It was brown”, “It was dark blue”, “It was green” or something else off the mark.

From Here to There

My phone is now more powerful than my first two laptops were as well as both our desktop computers, combined. We live in a period where phones have octocore processors and 2gb of RAM. This is the power of competition and innovation because you simply don’t find this quickly a movement in the computer market.

PC’s took years before they moved from dual to quad core and we still haven’t gotten octocore on all PC’s. Cell phones? One year we have 1ghz, later that year dual core. Next year, dual core 1ghz. Next year, 1gb ram and dual core. Next year quad core. Next year 2gb RAM. Next year octo core. It is insane how quickly science can move when companies are all fighting such a brutal battle of which phone you have in your pockets.

2012

2012 was a truly spectacular year. In my world of tech, Samsung became the first single phone to outsell the iPhone, with their S3, Android still holds strong in the mobile market, Microsoft let loose Windows 8 though probably not a great OS… A man jumped from outer space onto Earth, Gangnam Style takes the cake as the most viewed video online with well over 1 billion views, James Bond crosses a milestone of 50 years making an absolute blockbuster and possibly thee best Bond movie in history, the Hobbit marks a remarkable return to theaters as the first movie to be shown in 48 fps over the normal 24, Nintendo releases their latest and greatest innovation the Wii U, Barack Obama wins in the presidential race for a second time, a Berlin man became the first to be cured of HIV, NASA successfully lands its rover on Mars and not long after sends back the first ever colour HD photos from the planet, California moves forward though as they sign a bill to allow the first ever self driving cars on the roads, Google opens its Google Glass to all and makes with LG the best selling Nexus Phone and with Asus the best selling 7″ Android tablet. We all lost amazing people in the world such as Neil Armstrong, Sally Ride, Gore Vidal, Michael Duncan, Andy Griffith, The victims of several absolutely unfortunate and sad shootings, Norodom S, Whitney Houston, Ray Bradbury, Maurice Sendak, Dick Clarke, Donna Summer, Mike Wallace and many other great people.

Yes, A lot has happened, and our world will always move on from it. It was an amazing year… so lets see how great we can make this one. 🙂

What am I worth?

This is not some suicide post in disguise so please don’t think I am trying to say something between the lines with this. Insert segway to new topic- I have been watching so many different people in the world who are public speakers, who are sharing their knowledge or people who are listened to for they have a more valuable opinion for whatever reason. TEDxTeen is a positive example of this. I have always wanted to go on stage and have people listen to and be given insight from what I say, but it seems I can’t do this even on small scale. Is it selfish or mean or disrespecting for me to want this? Is it bad if I chase after the ability to try this once at least in some way I possibly could?
