Cancelled Weight Watchers membership....

Saturday, August 13, 2011

I lost almost 15 lb in 3 months. I did learn one important thing...which I knew but needed to relearn....if I track my food I can lose weight....duh....

However, continuing to pay $40 a month for weight watchers compared to sparking for free doesn't make sense when my budget is tight.

Just have to track my nutrition and exercise on SparkPeople..... emoticon

Thursday...tomorrow is payday and Friday...yeah!!!!

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Today was a good day at work. They tried to make me fix something I did wrong...but I didn't do it wrong....and told them so after checking it.

I stuffed envelopes for 3 hours and did the same amount I did yesterday in 3.75 hours. Guess I have a knack for stuffing envelopes..... emoticon

Also did my other duties with top notch efficiency...

If our department's 82-year-old ever retires I will be the oldest in our department. emoticon

Steven Hawking's theory of the start of the universe is depressing....

Monday, August 08, 2011

I am not convinced that the universe started without a god (God) ....

To contemplate no afterlife is terribly depresing and with so many signs of divine intervention in my life and other's it inconceivable to me that there is no divine plan.

I think, therefore I am.

I thank God for the blessings in my life.

    I am a believer in a God but I have also questioned many things in the BIble such as: Cain was thrown out of his home and went to another town? OK, so who had populated the town-his siblings? If so why were they not mentioned as Adam and Eve's children? Many inconsistencies. Scientists also cannot prove for a fact all of their theories, either. That's why they are theories. Both you just need to sift thru and take what makes sense to you. That doesn't mean that another person doing the same thing is wrong. Just has a different opinion. People will never be on the same page with science, politics, or religion.

    First off it is not just Steven Hawking's that believes in the Big Bang theory of creation. It is universally accepted in the astronomy and scientific community. Second, there is plenty of measurable evidence that supports the Big Bang theory. Third, a scientific theory is something that has to have strong evidence to support it. It is not just a speculation or a whim. If there is no evidence to support a scientific idea then it fails the criteria to be a theory. Forth, believing in the Big Bang does not mean that you do not believe in God. There are plenty of astronomers that are strongly religious. In fact I teach astronomy and I tell my students that we had a universe that was created from nothing. So how do you get an entire universe from nothing? That is the mystery of the moment of creation. And if you want to fill in a God to make that happen there is nothing wrong with that. The two concepts can exist together.

  There is plenty of purpose in life without God. To live, to love, and to hopefully make the world a little better place than it would have been without you.
I used to be a believer; I was raised Presbyterian. When 12 I realized that not everyone was Christian I no longer took its veracity for granted so I decided that I needed to reason this out. After 2 weeks of vacillating from thinking Christianity was absurd to praying as hard as I could for God to forgive me reason finally won out over wishful thinking and I quit believing in God. There have been a few times when I felt drawn to religion. When I read about the Religious Society of Friends and how they were the first opponents of slavery and supporters of women's suffrage and equality, were for humane treatment of prisoners and opposed war I felt like I wanted to be a Quaker. Likewise after attending a Peace Day talk I learned about the Baha'i faith and was attracted by it's message of universal brotherhood. I thought to myself that it would be cool to be a Quaker or Baha'i but the whole idea of a literal God still didn't make sense to me. I thought about joining and thinking of God as a metaphor rather than a literal being but that seemed dishonest and even disrespectful to those who did believe. Then it occurred to me that as a non-believer I can synthesize my own worldview taking the best of all religious and cultural traditions. When I thought about it this way atheism was much more attractive. I can take all the good stuff with out all the myths, taboos, and superstitions.
How is life different not that I'm not a believer? Since I've been both a believer and a non-believer I have to report very little. I will admit that religion brought me comfort at times; I was probably a little happier as a believer. I used to think the universe was just and that any injustice in this life would be reversed in the next. Not believing in God means a universe that isn't fair and one that doesn't even care about the outcomes. Heroes and villains all share the same ultimate fate. Then again that raises the value of truth, beauty, and justice in the real world.
Anyway, I don't feel like I need anyone's pity. I have a good job, a great wife and daughter, and other than a hundred pounds of weight to loose am in good health.

    I always think:
"There had to be something to push those particles together to make the big bang! And where did those particles come from in the first place?"

    There is so much evidence of a Loving Creator in nature alone, I think it takes more faith to be an atheist than a believer. Hawking may be considered a "genius" but he's overlooked so much evidence, it's hard to take him seriously on this point.
