Big Bang Theory, Part 2


This is a guest post by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome!
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.

Fashion Silliness


This is a guest post by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome!
Why do women wear jeans with tears in them?  I am at a loss to understand this fashion style.  Do the women want to look like they stole their boyfriends’ jeans after he accidentally tore them while building a skyscraper?  A modern day Potlatch where the women want to make a statement of how rich they are where they can buy expensive jeans then tear them up? Are women so warm in their jeans that they need cooling vents?

I saw a pair of jeans that had such clean tears that could only have been made by a scissors.  That moves the style from tears in jeans to cut-outs in jeans.  Is there a fashion difference between tears and cuts-outs?  Tears look accidental while cut-outs says, “yeah, I did this!”

What if this cut-out trend were to progress further?  Create enough cuts-outs in the jeans and there would be no more material left of the jeans except for a waist band.  The jean waist band would look strange, like a jeans belt with its own loops.  I would not want any woman I know to wear that because all she would have on is a jeans belt on her hips and nothing else but exposed undies below it.
Hip Hugger jeans, oh, excuse me, Low Riser jeans are just embarrassing.  We get to see an excess of muffin tops.  I just love that … muffin tops.  Sounds a lot better than spare tire around the middle.  We get to see the tops of the thong undies. This view has the glorious name of Whale Tail. If not undies then we get to see their butt cleavage.  Must be a fashionable name for that view.   Imagine getting to see all three views at the same time.  I once saw the tail end of a feminine pad exposed out the butt cleavage of a woman in Low Riser jeans.  How embarrassing.

 Fashion can be so silly.
