Here is a song from homestar:
It doesn’t go with my regular music files, I listen to it on repeat until I almost trash it (once a week).
I haven’t talked much about school yet this year.
My classes are:
Monday and Wednesday – Prehistoric Life
Tuesday and Thursday – Business Ethics (philosophy), Perl programming
Wednesday morning – Tennis
I’m home by the early afternoon every day and am off on Fridays, so my afternoons are devoted to tending young Mr. Turner. The two halves of my day can be both challenging and fun in their own way.
My philosophy class is okay, but two problems are:
1) the class isn’t challenging enough (West Valley was much tougher)
2)my professor comes from a psychology background so we don’t ever feel like we come to any conclusions just that everyone’s opinion is okay
Tennis is awesome everyone should play.
The Perl class is my most challenging, we’ve done some really neat projects with webpages, CGI scripts, and other fun things.
Prehistoric Life has been very interesting: I’ve always wondered how a college-level professor would teach the origin of life and species to regular students, not just the science majors. Seeing as how some 40% of the nation believes in a Divine Creation my professor approached the subject cautiously… at first.
The nice thing about it was that we talked about the scientific method and how rocks and fossils are dated during the first third of the semester. Now we’ve slipped on by the big bang and algae, through crustaceans and dinosaurs and have now arrived at mammals. Or as he would say “by now mammals have appeared”. Call me crazy but I just don’t see the causal connection from one species to another. Maybe it’s because I’ve never seen it happen, or because the immensity and depth of time dizzy my mortal brain to the point of disbelief, I don’t know.
So, I remain a creationary agnostic.
We find these fossils here and can prove, according to worldly knowledge, that species such and such lived during XX and died because of this or that which led to …; I appreciate the wisdom of man but I also acknowlege information from other sources. Namely, God didn’t put the creationary details in the Scriptures; therefore, I conclude that either He doesn’t know(preposterous) or I/we are unable and unwilling to accept the way that it really happened or maybe it doesn’t even matter at all.
As a mental exercise, one answer that I lean towards is the fact that God will not break his own laws; now assuming that our laws of phyics and such are His laws also, then we must conclude that He created things through means that we can understand, mortally. The question is then: have we identified the correct priciples and processes that create a human? I would then have to answer no, along with every other rational being.
Until then I patiently await the day of understanding in my search for Truth.
