Angry consumer defends Toyota!

Either I caught a Prius owner having a bad day when I wrote this article: Guess who's going for an electric ride along with Tesla Motors, INC in Northern California? or he really believes in Toyota!
Read Did I rile a Prius owner? and decide for yourself.

Something magical about music - especially Emii's

Something magical about music - especially Emii's

Why did they do that?

The makers of the new movie "Sex and the City 2" took a legendary song by Debby Harry of Blondie fame, rewrote "rap' portion to match peoples and events in the movie, and then gave it to a talented young singer Alicia Keyes to perform, and what came out?  A lousy rendition of a great song that makes a talented singer look bad!

See for yourself...

Original "Rapture" by Blondie...




and remake for "Sex and the City 2" performed by Alicia Keyes

I find it amusing but sad...

that there are so many skeptics out their that question the existence of God.  They ask how can I believe in something that I cannot see or cannot provide evidence that He exists.

The funny thing is that I have provided evidence that He exists and I commune with Him each day.  Of course the leading skeptics of today and their followers, the pharyngulites and other skeptic groups, would ask silly questions like what color is God's hair or what exactly did the two of you talk about yesterday.

My life is full of evidence of God's existence, His grace, and His mercy. The very air that I breath is God given, and His design of all creation leaves me awestruck.

I know that I was created for a specific purpose and that is to bring glory to Him... I haven't always lived that way... that is the human side of me, but I strive each day to allow Him to use me and work through my life.

So save your silly questions to amuse yourselves... I know God exists... I have no doubt that He is as real as the gravity that keeps my two feet on the ground!

So, let's see...

a couple of mathematicians at UBC have offered up their genius in a possible explanation to the puzzle of evolutionary generated biodiversity.

Michael Doebeli, a researcher at UBC's Biodiversity Research Centre and professor with the departments of Mathematics and Zoology had this to say...

"When you model one trait at a time--in isolation--you often find that ecological interactions aren't strong enough to drive divergence. But with many traits acting in concert, even very weak interactions can generate diversity. Our approach mirrors the complexity of reality more closely--if you think about it, all living organisms have at least dozens, if not hundreds, of ecologically relevant traits."

And here's what I have to say... "Well, DUH!" The number of ecologically relevant traits is most likely in the hundreds for each and every species with that number increasing with the complexity of the environment of which the species is a part.

And below you see two vicious members of Canis familiarlis verociously attacking a single defenseless Ursus teddyculis.

I am amazed at...

how we as humans believe that we must be measured by our achievements.

What makes me more important than my neighbor or my colleague or my cousin? Why do we go around like cocks with our chests all puffed up and our tail feathers flying high when we accomplish something?

Short and simple answer to that is PRIDE! What we fail to recognize is that without Him, we are nothing!

That's right, I said it and I will say it again and again and again!

Without Him we are nothing! Of course the Him I am referring to is the God of creation.

For man to even think that he can do anything without God is a fallacy. The world has fallen for Satan deceptive lies that we don't need God.

This one is for the skeptics out there... "Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?" - Matthew 6:27


God is awesome... just trust Him and everything will fall into place!

I had an epiphany!


Last night, about 3:00 a.m., I awoke and had the strangest thought, and then I realized it was an epiphany! You know, I wrote the other day about skeptics and their tactics used to try and discredit Christian believers.

Well, I mentioned this guy named Rob Smith aka "latsot" and how he has said this and that in emails and in comments and I don't understand why he keeps harassing me, claiming to call my employer, etc., etc., etc.

Guess what? Rob Smith aka "latsot" doesn't even exist!!! He is just a fictional character that I made up because I needed somebody to hold me accountable!

How do I know he doesn't exist or how can I prove he doesn't exist? Well that's quite easy. I have never seen the guy, don't know whether that is his real name or the one I just made up. I don't know what he does, or where he lives, or his phone number, the color of his hair, the sound of his voice... NOTHING! I know nothing, because I made him up, and if you tell me you know who he is, I will say, you can't prove it by me... you have to show him to me!

Those are the same words skeptics like this "fictional" character Rob Smith aka "latsot" use when I tell them that I know God exists!

You see, the difference is this:
1. I see God every morning and night!
2. I talk to God every day and night!
3. He speaks to me often!
4. I hear His voice and He hears mine!
5. I know precisely where He lives and what He does!
6. God authored a best selling book, the Bible. And if I walked down my little cozy neighborhood street, I would guess that more than half of my neighbors know Him and own His best seller!

I emailed my little imaginary friend Rob Smith aka "latsot" and told him to buy my book if he wanted to know more about me. You know what he said? Send me a copy and I will read it and write an honest review.

Guess what? That's right... he didn't give me an address to send it, because he doesn't have an address - he lives in my head - Rob Smith aka "latsot" is just a little crutch I have conjured up in my head to give me company.

I bet he is P.O.ed at me, because now he knows, that I can turn my back on him and forget about him! So long Rob Smith... you were fun for a while but now I am tired of you!

The skeptics strategy...


Skeptics, atheists, evolutionists, non-theists all use a similar strategy when trying to proffer the idea that God is simply a figment of man's imagination. Their general tactic is to try to discredit believers by throwing everything at them even the "kitchen sink" or better yet the "lab sink".

For example, blog reader, Rob Smith, who is apparently an Englishman, went so far as to call American River College. Here's what he had to say in two different emails to me:

"Why does your institution say it doesn't know about you when I ring them up?"

and in the other he said: "When I asked them they said that they don't regard you as a professor, associate or otherwise. And they said they haven't employed you for a couple of years."

Now anybody in their right mind (except of course "freethinker" Rob Smith would say that those two statements are contradictory...

in the first statement Smith says "Why does your institution say it doesn't know about you...?" and in the second email he says, "When I asked them they said that they don't regard you as a professor, associate or otherwise. And they said they haven't employed you for a couple of years."

The assumption is that they were talking about me, but why, pray tell, would they say they didn't know anything about me? And they say, oh yeah, he was employed a couple of years ago... now how does that make sense?

Well, let me answer that for you... either Smith is lying (which I doubt) or he is just plain stupid (which I believe is right on target!) because he probably talked to some Federally funded work study student that had no idea who or what he was talking about and didn't care. Let's see, out of 1235+ professors at that college alone, I could be hard to locate.

Oh, by the way, to clarify matters for the brilliant researcher Rob Smith, I sent him all the class that I taught at ARC through Fall 2009 including the section numbers).

So could there be more believers among the faculty at our colleges and universities? You betcha! Will they come out of the woodwork to let it be known... probably not!

Where do these "free-thinkers" up with this stuff?

I continue to be amazed and amused with atheists' commentaries on how the universe began! They OBVIOUSLY don't know... do they?

Take this commentary, "The universe was an accident."

I would classify this commentator under the category "Most likely had a lobotomy."

Comparing creation of the universe to making a fruit smoothie?

Well, first off,to make a fruit smoothie, you need the components plus a blender, none of which man can make out of NOTHING!

Just like the "Big Bang" or whatever theory you want to propose this week about how the universe came about, there had to have been something to form into a universe... you can't make SOMETHING out of NOTHING!...



Unless, of course, you are the supernatural God... that is, of course, how simple and fundamental the making of the universe was, but... I also know that is far too complex for an atheist to understand!

PZ Myers sounds like a pacifist!

Myers fits in well with playing the nice guy.... but if he does not agree with you... he will NOT just have a casual conversation with you.

He will banish from the Pharyngula website and then when questions are put directly to him, he will not leave a comment where the question is posted, but rather goes back to his own site (the one of course where the adversary has been banned) and he posts his response there...

The guy is a real joke... take him serious and you are definitely bound to "go to Hell!"

Ignorance must be bliss!

When I watch President Obama as he speaks, I am constantly reminded of the old saying "ignorance is bliss!"

He is always smiling as if he just scored a three-pointer or he just scored with his girl... even when he says the dumbest things!

Take for example.. How could our Commander-in Chief not know that the correct pronunciation of kawr-muhn and not corpse man?


That must have been a real confidence builder for our men and women in the field fighting and protecting our great country!

Obama administration recognizes George W. Bush

We've just heard that the Obama Administration will be honoring the 43rd President of the United States by naming the gap between the tectonic plates beneath Haiti after him.
The area will now officially be referred to as "Bush's Fault."



A magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurred on January 12, 2010, at Port-au-Prince, Haiti, with major impact to the region and its citizens. This perspective view of the pre-quake topography of the area clearly shows the fault that is apparently responsible for the earthquake as a prominent linear landform immediately adjacent to the city.

Pretty funny...

Wow... why didn't I think of that?

What do you think? Government assisted suicide! We could even open up government subsidized suicide clinics!

And since the atheists/evolutionists have no purpose in life... i.e. you're born, you live, you die, end of story... they could shorten their misery, and I would support that!

Heck, think about it... if a kid makes it past the abortion process, maybe he, she, or in the case of a sexual identity crisis, "it" could just go into a suicide clinic and... well, you know... end of story!

Of course, we wouldn't want kids doing that without being the age of consent, which is, according to liberals, what... about 5 or 6?

But better yet, until they reach the age of consent, parents without a conscious (conscious - an attribute bestowed upon those who believe in God) could just "off" their kids if they, anytime after their children are born, decide to "abort" the process of child rearing!

My guess is, you could probably buy your congressman's vote to introduce new tax legislation that would provide a tax credit equal to or greater than the deduction you would get for a dependent.

What do you think liberals?

It's a beautiful morning!


It is after midnight on Monday morning here on the California Coast, and I am quite confident that right about now, the atheists, evolutionists, the homosexuals and lesbians, the non-theists, loads of Americans, Brits, Aussies, and people from all over the world are upset with me and making claims that I am a not a professor nor a biologist, some will be quoting the Bible, claiming that I am a liar… let’s see, I believe it’s Exodus 20:16 or thereabouts about bearing false witness…

They will be saying that I have deleted their comments, etc, etc, etc. My guess is there are a dozen or so that have left not one or two comments on any one post, but perhaps dozens of comments per post. I will also predict that they are fuming, claiming that I am avoiding all this… that I just post and post with no substance, and then ignore their comments that (they think) are full of substance.

Well, the fact of the matter is… I left Sacramento Friday evening, February 12th to go to the coast with my lovely wife with no children, pets, phones, or internet… and that the posts that have gone up since then were prepared ahead of time and scheduled to post at various times throughout the four days we are gone (You can figure that one out on your own… doesn’t take a lot of internet savy!)

I will be home Monday evening, February 15th, but probably will not be able to address comments until later Tuesday, and of course, that depends on how many are awaiting moderation. Until then… have a great day!

Explain it to me again?

Now how is it that the characteristics of life are:

* Living things are made of cells.
* Living things obtain and use energy.
* Living things grow and develop.
* Living things reproduce.
* Living things respond to their environment.
* Living things adapt to their environment.


And wasn't it Virchow that said "every cell comes from other cells."?

So Professor Myers, would you please explain to me one more time how life spontaneously generated and why we don't see it happen today?

Happy Valentine's Day!

... to all the heterosexual couples... what a beautiful day to share with the love of your life! A Sunday, at that! The Lord's day! How cool is that... imagine couples, men and women, and families, all around the world enjoying this day!

How old is the universe really?

Scientists can really tell, eh?

“At a particular instant roughly 15 billion years ago, all the matter and energy we can observe, concentrated in a region smaller than a dime, began to expand and cool at an incredibly rapid rate. By the time the temperature had dropped to 100 million times that of the sun's core, the forces of nature assumed their present properties, and the elementary particles known as quarks roamed freely in a sea of energy. When the universe had expanded an additional 1,000 times, all the matter we can measure filled a region the size of the solar system.” Scientific American 1994

Cornell University reports this: ” Scientists say that the Earth is 4.6 billion years old while the universe is somewhere from 10 to 20 billion years old…The 15-20 billion year number comes not from the CMB (Cosmic Microwave Background), but rather predominantly from measurements of nearby and distant galaxies, particularly their rates of expansion away from us”

The difference between 10 and 20 billion years is 10,000 million.

I am sure PZ Myers with his God given intellectual abilities and all his scientific evidence can tell us… how old, exactly, is the universe give or take a couple thousand million years, Mr. Myers?

The things atheists don't want you to know!

Do you know what Sir Arthur Keith, protege of Charles Darwin, and writer of the foreword of the 100th edition of Darwin's The Origin of Species had to say about evolution?

He said...
"Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable."



Now, what say ye, PZ Myers?

Wisdom....really?

Some more brilliance from the pharyngula site from which I am forbidden to enter...

a mild degree of hedonism called "Take Back Sunday"-- It goes like this. Sunday is awesome when you don't believe in God. - Antiochus Epiphanes

That's real wisdom there, AE. Thinking about it, that's what started me on the road to atheism as a nipper - being pissed off at having to waste Sunday morning at Sunday School. Mind you, I think getting us 4 kids out of the way was a bit of hedonism for my parents!


And you call that wisdom? Really?

I call it... stupid is... as stupid does!

Try this for wisdom:

Proverbs 12:26

The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.
