2015 was a strange year for the world. Historic court decisions in the US, riots and political uprisings throughout the world, Wars, terrorism, political civil wars, and terrible tragedies. It seems that the world as we know is crumbling around us. The new year didn’t bring anything that new, but simply a pause to our […]

I recently watched the new James Bond film entitled Spectre. I must say that it was amazing, and well worth your money. I will also say that it is exactly like every other Bond film. No spoilers, but here is what happened in Spectre and in every other Bond movie: 007 gets the bad guy. […]
By now I’m sure you’ve all seen the two teasers for the new Star Wars movie and, more importantly, the fabulous new trailer that came out a few weeks ago. I trust most of you have felt the blend of nostalgia, childhood wonder, and excitement that the anticipation for this movie has elicited in me […]

Ten months ago, I wrote about Stephen Fry’s articulation of atheism. Ten months on, Fry is back on my Facebook feed, with another video on why he prefers Greek gods to the Christian or monotheistic God, and basically why the Christian God sucks—and receiving quite a bit of media attention, at least in the UK […]
I recently went to watch the musical, Wicked by Stephen Schwartz, for the first time, and found it very entertaining and thought-provoking. The songs were catchy and the classic songs of “Defying Gravity” and “For Good” were great. The cast did a great job and they played and sung their parts wonderfully. If you’re not […]
Warning: This post contains spoilers. If you want to see Exodus: Gods and Kings (E:GK) for its surprises and twists, best to go see and read this later. Ridley Scott’s latest epic is definitely that. There are plenty of scenes filled with stunning special effects, powerful storm clouds, and confrontations involving characters with wild eyes […]
“Big cosmology has become our secular religion, a church even atheists can join.” – Jeffrey Kluger, Time Magazine I cannot stop thinking about Interstellar.
