By request, here is Prejudice:

 

Oh, and because it’s Easter, I can’t help but include the Pope Song.  Not for those with weak constitutions, or catholics.

Time Minchin Video number 2!

Great song that speaks to the reality of long term relationships.  Also, there is a longer version that explains the song a bit more, if you liked it:

 

The previous video, Canvas Bags can be found here.

New Feature!

Ok, so Chey and I went to the Reason Rally in Washington D.C. last weekend.  We had a blast, but one of the big attractions of the rally was Tim Minchin, an aussie musician who played there.  So, I want to share the wealth with all my fine, non-existent readers.  For your viewing and hearing pleasure, here is the Tim Minchin YouTube video for his song Plastic Bags.  I will post a new video every few days, so keep your eyes pealed and prepare to laugh out loud.

Let me know what you think by clicking on the little 5 star icons up above.  Thanks!

How an Atheist Dies

I never knew Derek K. Miller.  We had some things in common, visited the same sorts of websites and the like.  Derek died just a few days ago at age 41 from cancer.  Here is what he had to say about his own death.

Here it is. I’m dead, and this is my last post to my blog. In advance, I asked that once my body finally shut down from the punishments of my cancer, then my family and friends publish this prepared message I wrote—the first part of the process of turning this from an active website to an archive.

If you knew me at all in real life, you probably heard the news already from another source, but however you found out, consider this a confirmation: I was born on June 30, 1969 in Vancouver, Canada, and I died in Burnaby on May 3, 2011, age 41, of complications from stage 4 metastatic colorectal cancer. We all knew this was coming.

That includes my family and friends, and my parents Hilkka and Juergen Karl. My daughters Lauren, age 11, and Marina, who’s 13, have known as much as we could tell them since I first found I had cancer. It’s become part of their lives, alas.

Click on that link above to read his whole story. 

Phil Plait and PZ Myers made mention of Derek, and I figured I’d help pass his story along.
