Ran across this online repository of data on world religious affiliations: The Association of Religion Archives Looks like a rather vast batch of data. Just thought I’d share.

A nod to Ian Stich

I’ve been on a music/guitar jag recently, and I’m particularly impressed with the YouTube content offered by Ian Stich, under his moniker “StichMethod Guitar.” Ian has a Patreon page here, and his YouTube page is here. Check ’em out!

No more Dell computers for this family…

My (almost) seventeen year old daughter’s current notebook computer is a Dell Inspiron 7375. Nothing wrong with it – it’s treated her fine. Except for the charging adaptor, which stopped working after just a few months. We ordered a compatible one from Amazon. Didn’t work. Not because the product failed to produce voltage, but rather […]

I Hate Politics, BUT…

Things happening in the world these days scare me – a lot. I don’t like to wade into arguments. But what I see going on around me is a willingness to “silence opposition” that is more pronounced than it’s ever been before. The recent controversy around Reddit anti-vax communities is the trigger that has me […]

On the physics front I’m particularly excited right […]

Many Worlds Madness…

One of my biggest peeves in the physics world is the idiocy of the Everettian Many Worlds interpretation of quantum theory, characterized by this quote from Sean Carroll: There was nothing stochastic or random about any of this process, the entire evolution was perfectly deterministic. It’s not right to say “Before the measurement, I didn’t […]

Power is a dangerous thing

I’ve watched something amazing happen over the last couple of weeks. The left-leaning part of our society is suddenly worried. Not just about Donald Trump per se, but about a whole host of things. I wish I still had the link, but about two days after the election I read a post by someone calling […]
