Sam Harris defines atheism and the ACA

And if you want to listen to some interesting discussions and phone ins, go visit the Austen Community of Atheists podcasts. I've been listening to them recently, and find them really rather interesting.

Friday 13th?

(Looks like they're cutting us off later this evening, probably midnight - while I can, I'll make a little update.)

I was going through my inbox on Y!G this afternoon, when I noticed an aquaintance had put up the following poll:

Are You Superstitious?

Today's Friday the 13th. Are you superstitious?

A little

I'm actually quite pleased to note that the majority vote (at the time I voted) was 'No' with 15 votes ('Yes' 1, 'A Little' 5).

And I left my little comment:

Not in the slightest. I understand the law of truly large numbers, confirmation bias and selective thinking. I also don't believe in ghosts, angels, demons, the devil or god (or any particular socieities versions of same). It's just a day like any other - in fact, I didn't even know it was 'friday 13th' today, until I saw your poll.

Honestly? I'm just wondering what everyone else thinks.

Though I now feel like looking up just exactly why people think Friday 13th is an unlucky day.

Getting cut off tomorrow

Just to let everyone know, I just tried to pay the phone bill, but my card was declined.

This means that as of tomorrow - we wont have a phone/internet connection.

Unless of course some miracle happens.

So, I won't be online again until we get to Mom and Dad's at the end of the month - moving date is June 28th.

I will still work on my standing commissions, the one for CG and the one for Rowyne - as well as the one for Mamalucia.

If you need to contact me during the two weeks I'm not online, contact - she has my mobile phone number and will be able to tell me whats going on.

Only do this if it's urgent though, as she's my best friend, not my secretary.

Thanks all. See you later.
