Good to see you.

I hope you and your family have been well.

Thanks Deep.

I guess I had to go away for awhile and dream it all up again.

while Einstein is slippery on this subject, it does seem to me that the non-Religious Right probably has more in the way of facts on their side.

but that's just a guess. i'm not all that invested in this topic.

Evangelicals who put Einstein squarely in a fundamentalist camp are just as wrong as atheists who put him in theirs. Aren't we tired of the false dichotomy of either/or? Must it really be either God or evolution? Must it be God vs. science? The Right and the Left are both guilty of forcing extremism, when the truth is perhaps much more in the middle than either would like to think.

After all, quoth Einstein, “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

I really could care less what Einstein thinks about God, but how do you misinterpret the following quote?

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity... Never lose a holy curiosity."

I have forgiven Jesus.

You could think that he was talking about God.

Hey good to see you back!

So does mean that we're going to see the FYM equivalent of an Achtung Baby style transformation?. . .Gone is the serious, black-white-in-the-desert AEON. The new AEON will be ironic, technicolor, embracing the contradictions of the present age? Will there be those who will only love the old AEON and will you earn legions of new fans with your new left-leaning persona?

The market is already saturated with that image.
