Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

Ezra, how can you honestly denigrate Karen Armstrong? She really does her homework. Sam Harris just makes stuff up. Frank I'll be happy to respond to your question but it's going to cost you. I'm no longer willing to invest time and energy in a one sided conversation. So if you genuinely want my op...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Hey Diane good to hear from you. Hope all goes well.


Lori, sorry about the episode with Le. I didn't realize he (she?) was one of those folks who simply cannot leave well enough alone.

Re: Whatcha listening to?

David Bowie on TV in Germany from 1978 featuring a pre-King Crimson Adrian Belew on lead guitar. Never been a super Bowie fan but I think his late 70s work with Brian Eno and Robert Fripp is his most interesting period. They pulled something out of him that seems missing to me from his earlier and l...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

I've seen her around on Facebook and she shows up here from time to time. Chuck Thanks. Just checking. It's been a while since she posted here and she did say something about medical issues. Hey Diane! Let us know how you're doing. This is a bit scary, but I think I know what he's getting at. Mark ...

Re: Whatcha reading?

I wasn't optimistic when I left but I did get some reading done over my Thanksgiving holiday. THE HAWKLINE MONSTER: A Gothic Western by Richard Brautigan Brautigan was a kind of hippie Kurt Vonnegut, famous in the 60s and 70s counterculture, whose reputation has lapsed into obscurity. I read this on...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Well the oft threatened "Torture Report" has been released and it turns out to be as bad as expected. But who knew under his fright mask Big Brother would turn out to be Gomer Pyle? These idiots hired two "torture experts" and paid them $80 million bucks! Presumably the CIA has a...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Well folks I'm on the road again. First some business and then a long Thanksgiving holiday. I took the pledge so no personal laptopping for a bit. I need some down time. There will be some staring into space and maybe a wee bit of eatin' and drinkin' and certainly a long walk in the woods but no tra...

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Does anybody remember an old 70s British show called BLAKE'S 7? It too was low budget and video taped but was brilliantly written and acted. Of course several folks involved with the production of DOCTOR WHO were involved with B7. I first saw it just like I did DW, on an Atlanta PBS station way way ...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

The word "atheist" does have a militant interpretation for many of the theists. An "anti" versus simply not believing. Sure, but not my problem. Our very existence is an offense to them. We don't have to actually do anything. There is, as I'm certain you will agree, a difference...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

I still don't like the word agnostic. It's too fancy. I'm simply not a believer. But, as simple as this notion is, it confuses some people. Someone wrote a Wikipedia entry about me, identifying me as an atheist because I'd said in a book I wrote that I wasn't a believer. I guess in a world uncomfor...

Thanks for that clarification Ben.

Maybe Charlie was a chaplain.

Yes as a matter of fact I think Charlie was an atheist.

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

It's pretty bad. I saw the first episode out of morbid curiosity after reading HE's wonderful script just to see how badly they butchered it. I thought Keir Dullea was way too old for the part of Devon who I took to be 19 or 20 at the most. Dullea was in his mid-30s at the time. And how the hell did...
