“I’m on the Verge of Committing Suicide.”

I hadn’t heard of Sherif Gaber until his recent tweet caused enough media to hit my world. This young man is an activist who lives in Egypt. That alone is dangerous. He also speaks out for women’s rights and is a self-proclaimed atheist.

Gulp.

After checking out some videos made by Gaber, I found his arguments to perfectly sane. He shows footage of religious cray-crays explaining how and why you must beat women into submission, to include when they don’t put out. Sherif also discusses other absurdities such as an unspoken license to attack burka-clad woman in public, without recourse, for the crime of walking like a prostitute. read more

Stephen Hawking and Religion

I read A Brief History of Time many years ago and loved it.  Making physics make sense to the layperson isn’t easy, and it was a fascinating read.

After his passing, I very much enjoyed the tidbit on Stephen Hawking and paradoxes by Michael Guillen.

Michael Guillen’s Article

This amazing scientist certainly was a paradox.  He lived most of his life with a severe disability, was incredibly smart, but he was also famous for being smart.

What is very remarkable about Hawking was his celebrity-type status.  I have seen footage of him scooting around in his wheelchair with throngs of paparazzi.  You just don’t see that outside of celebrities and politicians.   We’re talking Michael Jackson and Lady Diana crowds. read more
