    Throwing 1,000 Consecutive Heads

    Can we throw 1,000 consecutive heads on a fair coin? Yes, providing we go the right way about it. The raw chance is low, 1 in 2^1000, but it can be done. Start with 5,000 blank cards, plus a lot more spare cards. And pens, we'll need pens to write on the cards. Plus, of course, a coin to toss...

    DeSantis signs Florida 'woke' bill

    With the new 'Don't say gay' law in Florida, Grade School teachers are going to have to change the way they address children. All children now have the pronoun 'they', since 'boy', 'he', girl', and 'she' are promoting a specific gender identity. For the same reason, teachers are now no longer...

    is God immutable

    It is not my opinion, it is standard Buddhism. Nirvana is not non-existence. The Buddha attained nirvana at age 35; he died age 80. For 45 years he was living in the world while at the same time in nirvana. So, we have a two-part God. One part is immutable and does not change while the...

    God is not a Designer

    God is omniscient. He knows everything: past, present and future. It is as if His 'memory' extended into the future as well as the past. In effect a sort of omni-google from which God can retrieve anything at will. A designer starts from a blank page and adds things to the page to create the...

    How wrong is YEC?

    Young Earth creationism is wrong, but how wrong? YEC says that the universe is 6,000 years old. Astronomy and cosmology say that the universe is 13.5 billion years old. That is a difference of a factor 13,500,000,000 / 6,000 = 2,250,000. The distance from New York to San Francisco is 2,600...
