The Paper Chase This film displayed no real central conflict. At best, the backdrop of a stress induced Harvard school life was the major conflict of this film. I don’t really understand what the film’s central theme meant though. To the best of my observations, it seems to be a complete mess of clichés and … Continue reading The Paper Chase

Dating and interviewing: How improving one skill improves others by Aadi Reddy
This book suffers from a myriad of run-on sentences, awkward wording that often times makes little sense within the context of the sentence, and it reads like an unedited diatribe of whatever was on the author’s mind. The title seems misleading; the author offers a scant few hypothetical examples that rely on the author’s obvious … Continue reading Dating and interviewing: How improving one skill improves others by Aadi Reddy
Breaker Morant: A glimpse upon human apathy
The only reason that war criminals aren’t effectively punished is because of this pitiful argument within movies that soldiers killing innocent people aren’t ever truly guilty of their heinous crimes. The moral of the story in these shameful movies? A soldier isn’t responsible for killing people. The implications that nobody will focus on? The value … Continue reading Breaker Morant: A glimpse upon human apathy
Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
By far, one of the greatest books I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Daniel Kahneman goes into such details for biases in availability, to substitution of hard questions to how we feel about such difficult questions, and how we try to find causes where there are none. There is a plethora of riveting, academic, and … Continue reading Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
My Cousin Vinny
The film was very comedic from start to finish; the entire cast did a good job in their performance. Shockingly, the trial performance seemed more accurate than the other films that were viewed; this is despite the fact that it seemed more oriented towards being a slice-of-life film than a Law-related film. An interesting segment … Continue reading My Cousin Vinny

I feel quite terrible for not updating promptly. I’ve found, to my surprise, that more people have come to read my blog and … Continue reading Working on my second ebook
Regarding Web Forums: Elitism is everywhere; we just moralize our own bigotry
Over the course of these ten days, I've dealt with some rather annoying events. Most are fairly minor events but the most vexing moment of this week was purchasing a $500 Swash electronic ironer only to receive it broken. After calling the company, and repeating several start-up processes for over an hour, the machine never … Continue reading Regarding Web Forums: Elitism is everywhere; we just moralize our own bigotry
Why New Atheism imploded . . .
Why New Atheism imploded . . . It seems that after Hitchen’s death, it became far less focused on debating religious groups about their beliefs. Comparatively, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and the organizers of Skepticon and TAM have completely wrecked the Atheist movement for followers of New Atheism and for other Atheist movements. TAM and Skepticon … Continue reading Why New Atheism imploded . . .
Why do we really have wars in the Middle East?
Why do we really have wars in the Middle East? During the 1970s, President Nixon made a deal with Saudi King Faisal since the U.S. economy was headed for a crash because of the Bretton Woods agreement to sell gold on the U.S. dollar. Kissinger and Nixon laid out the plan that would keep our … Continue reading Why do we really have wars in the Middle East?

The answer is a resounding no; before you comment, I ask that you simply read my contentions in this article. I go into more depth regarding my issues with "New Atheism" in my ebook, "The Fallacies … Continue reading Why New Atheism is politically ignorant and the real reasons for the Iraq wars
