A lot of my more intelligent, scientifically literate friends know how much I love astrophysics, astronomy, and related fields, like quantum mechanics. Some time ago I made a video, late at night after I had been burned by the sun from being out all day, about a thought I had in my head. It had to do with the expansion of the universe, dark energy, and it’s ties in theoretical physics.

A couple days ago I was looking through my video manager on youtube and came across that video. I watched it and pulled it immediately from the “Public” section. I didn’t realize just how jumbled my thoughts were and how I didn’t give too much detail in facts and reasoning. I poorly communicated the information because I didn’t write it down. I just hit the “record” button and went at it! So I decided that I wanted to remake the video fully explaining, in far better detail, my theory and view of things. I even drew up a couple slides to show just what I was going to explain. I don’t know if I thought that maybe I could have been one of the first people to pitch the idea, but it’s been in my mind for a while and I had to share.

The ONE thing I didn’t do was research what I was thinking. I googled the topic, just to look up a little more info on the subject matter and came right across what I had been thinking this entire time. I had mixed feelings about it too. At first I was upset… “FUCK!!”, I couldn’t believe it was already proposed. Like someone read my mind. I took a step back, thought a bit… and…. smiled.

Now… I feel a bit proud of myself. I came to a logical conclusion with verifiable, testable information about the cosmos; totally unassisted. Now, it may only be a theory, but I put this together in my head and played with it only to find that others drew the same conclusions and thought the same thing. I’m not alone in this… I feel really good about that.

 

You know that moment when you murder someone intellectually and you both know it burns? You deconstruct everything they say irrational and hand them a platter of their own faulty logic. Then you serve them some of your own reasoning, backed with evidence and simple logic…. and they don’t say a DAMN thing afterwards because deep down, they know you’re right.

Then there’s the spectators who sit around watching on the side of the person getting killed. They wont say a thing, they never do.

Faith based reasoning doesn’t hold up in logical practical application. PERIOD. It’s only meant for things like…. happy thoughts…. comfort… displacement of responsibility… and paranoia. What else is believing things without a shred of evidence going to get you? Not a house, job, or a cure for AIDS, that take’s real application.

Now let’s be real… who cares what anyone believes, right? I believe in Santa Clause, big deal. But if I went around stopping people from buying toys or saying the abominable snowman is going to eat you if you don’t be nice, I shouldn’t blame any of you for getting upset. And by the way…. Santa is the reason for global warming. He’s on vacation in Brazil and forgot to program his new electronic thermostat. He’s regulates the ice caps… and right now they’re melting. Help the polar bears.
