Big Bang Theory, Part 2

The Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to the guys who came up with the God Particle at Big Bang. Is there be a Nobel Prize for Religion that can be awarded for Intelligent Design Theory?  I do not know what the idea of Intelligent Design really means. Maybe it’s that God created the universe and it’s science's job to figure out how He did it.

I have a hard time seeing God sitting at a drafting table drawing up the universe. I think that those details just happened. It’s like when I decide to go run a mile -- my mind says run and my body does the rest. My mind says run faster and it happens. I do not think about how to run but the back of my mind makes it happen. It may well be the same for God. “Let there be…” and it happened. The back of God’s mind did the rest.

I heard a Catholic priest say that the idea of Intelligent Design is a bad idea. The priest said that Intelligent Design suggests that God only exists where we do not have enough knowledge to explain what we see. The priest says that God exists everywhere including those areas where we have enough knowledge to explain what we see.

Wow! That instantly made sense to me. Today, we cannot fully explain much about how the universe started or how it still works so why attribute this lack of knowledge to Intelligent Design? Past civilizations (the Greeks/Romans as an example) used their version of “gods” to explain that which they did not understand. So there was a god of the sun, god of the sea, etc. Today, we do not accept a god of the sun as we better understand planets and solar systems.

The Catholic priest wanted to dispel a terribly scary idea that we created a single God in Intelligent Design theory to do what the Greeks/Romans did with multiple gods. 

Too deep for me. I leave it to smarter folks.

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Encyclopedia Brown Bear

At an age when other children decide to set up lemonade stands, Baby Bear decided to start a detective agency. His decision resulted from his experience in the Goldilocks home invasion. If you don't know this well-publicized crime case, Google Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear wanted to become a policeman to help the other denizens of the Forest with their troubles and to maintain justice for all. Alas, the police did not accept children as applicants.

Baby Bear ran to his community library and borrowed the renowned guide, The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook. Baby Bear spent the next twenty days, the library's lending period, studying the text. He chose the business name of "Encyclopedia Brown Bear Detective Agency" after his hero, Leroy "Encyclopedia” Brown. Baby Bear's dad hung the business sign across the garage door and opened a folding card table and four chairs in the entrance below.

On the first day, the Big Bad Wolf…
