I shall write peace upon your wings, and you shall fly around the world so that children will no longer have to die this way.

It’s been 63 years now since attacks on both Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and still the entire world mourns. The quote is attributed to twelve year old Sadako Sasaki, who died as a result of the attack on Hiroshima.

Let us remember all of those who lost their lives on that fateful day in 1945, as well as ensuing years, and use all of the power we have to be sure that nothing of the sort happens ever again.

I got my reply:

Hi,

Thanks, Alyssa, for keeping a user banned because they don’t have the mental capacity to stay in a public school. Thanks, Alyssa, for not realizing that people who are homeschooled are in the millions. Thanks, Alyssa, for not understanding that the reason I’m not in school is due to underlying mental issues.

I’ve had socialization problems forever. Being around people gave me panic attacks. There’s much more that I’d rather not get into.

Clearly, Facebook is made up of incompetent fools.

Oh well. No one cares about one person being done wrong, so when this happens to Kevin Rose’s child, then it’ll be frontpage news on Digg.

On WordPress, there are many cool features. How many hits you get per day are tracked, how many hits per article, and where they come from.

Usually my hits come from other blogs or out of thin air. Sometimes I’ll get a search or two (yesterday was a record day with about 20 searches), and sometimes I’ll get an interesting one.

Like this.

That’s right. Someone searched… that… and found my blog. Thanks, internet, for yet another sleepless night.

I’ve blogged on this prior, but I think a reminder is needed and this is surely a valid one. Before I said we shouldn’t allow “Academic Freedom” in form of criticizing evolutionary theory in classes. I also said why, but apparently it’s not clear enough that people would understand. Or maybe they do — and don’t care.

In science, evolution is a fact. There’s also a theory of evolution. The theory explains how the fact works. The theory of evolution will never be perfect, because we’ll always be modifying it as new evidence comes out. This is, however, most certainly NOT a weakness. Theories are meant to change. Because we’ll never have all the information on how they work and et cetera.

Germ theory of disease, for example, is imperfect, but no one is going to flat-out deny the existence of germs, are they? Well, yes and no. Yes in strange conspiracy circles, no in any rational person who isn’t batshit insane.

The reason why we don’t want to allow people to criticize evolution is simple: if people criticize elements of it that haven’t yet been analyzed, there will be so much to criticize that people will overlook the obvious benefits reaped from evolutionary theory (medicine, for one) and ask why we’re even teaching it if it has so many holes. That’s what the intelligent idiot community wants, they want to teach what we’ve not yet figured out about evolution and exploit that to question if it even happens, regardless of what is being criticized.

Florida is treading a dangerous path, one that can only end badly if the IDiot community is allowed to continue their cynical (and fanatical) bullshit. Someone has to stop them, and if WE, the ones who care, don’t speak out, who does?

Gigantic Fairytale

It was said on a billboard that all religions are fairytales. This, apparently, offended a ton of people and easter business fell. I found this quite interesting, so my first response to religious bulletins on the social networking sites like MySpace happens to be “sounds like a fairytale” or whatever.

I was on my nephew’s MySpace (I like to read his stuff, I’m a kid too!), and… I noticed a bulletin, I responded to it, he responded, etc. It’s just an interesting case study.

I tried to think of a better title. I really, really did. But after such a victorious battle against creationism today (this blog destroyed all personal barriers with 370 hits, compared to 90 hits of my previous record), something had to ruin it.

That something would be my mom.

Being under the age of 18, I still live with my parents, and like any rebellious teen I want to leave. But that’s a bit irrelevant. Anyhoo, even though I’m a perfectly down to Earth and nice fellow (sans my lack of religion), my parents seem to think that I’m a devil incarnate for various reasons. Notably my air of superiority over them for their belief and my lack there of (note: it’s presumed, I don’t care if they have faith or not and get along well with many people of faith).
