5ives: Smiles deep down

Posted by jeremyclarke on · General

Merlin Mann is a special kind of genius, and his site, 5ives, a constantly growing database of lists of five things sharing a theme, is one of those internet treasures that both feels like a total time-killer and an enlightening experience. They seem largely based on real fact, though often incorporate subtle and not-so-subtle fictions. Exhibit A, “Five revelations from Rene Descartes’ LiveJournal“:

1. He used to be into Emo, but now he thinks it’s “kind of gay”
2. He’s thinking of getting a job next summer
3. He totally blew the math quiz on Friday
4. He’s frenched three times now (and one time got a little tit)
5. He’s using a Bob Marley icon some dude made

Think about that for a moment, then go check out the rest. Another favorite of mine is “Five things it’s probably better not to do when you’re kind of drunk.

haxx0r3d!

Ha Ha. I totally just got hacked by someone named “Net Devil”, who changed my front page to “nEt^DeViL OwNz Your Box!! *n0 w4r* *for the Old Times* for help net_devil@hackermail.com”.

This is embarrassing only because his name is so silly, and because the best he could do was a single line of text in an html file (I wonder if “Net Devil” even knows html?), dude, at least learn photoshop if you’re going to bother tagging people’s sites.

Anyway, all is normal again, thanks to Mira and Tom for pointing out the problem.

God v. logic, over three hundred proofs for gods existence

Posted by jeremyclarke on October 12, 2005 · General

ARGUMENT FROM CREATION

(1) If evolution is false, then creationism is true, and therefore God exists.
(2) Evolution can’t be true, since I lack the mental capacity to understand it; moreover, to accept its truth would cause me to be uncomfortable
(3) Therefore, God exists.

This kind of argument structuring is pretty much what I did all through my philosophy of religion classes. The logic of faith is so weak it’s depressing how easily the premise-conclusion relationship can be mocked.

(obviously some of these are unfair and oversimplified, but some are spot on (see esp. Ontological Argument I, it’s pretty much the base for them all))
