Baseball Parks

Touring the parks to check out the fields as well as the cities out at the same time. A work in progress.

Last Comment: Jeremy - 09/07/2015 @ 08:29:51 PM - Coors Field is the 3rd oldest NL park, which is pretty crazy given the only 2 older are 2 of the 3 MLB stadiums that are more or less "intentionally old"....

A Little Nutty - Scientology: Busted; Religion: Plausible

Jeremy - 05/02/2008

A Little Nutty - Scientology: Busted; Religion: Plausible

Chances are you have seen people writing off all religions, or better yet, anyone who believes in any religion based on the faulty premise that all religions are created equal.

It's true, all religions require a certain leap of faith. It's perfectly reasonable to consider all of religious people duped. It's just not reasonable to pretend that any religious person, of any creed, is taking an equal leap of faith as someone else of a different faith. At their core most religions are a hypothesis at the origin of our existence and what happens after we die. Like any hypothesis of how anything works they aren't necessarily all of equal merit.

I'll break down three religions I know a little about.

The Court of Public Opinion
