Agnosticism

I've been pondering agnosticism lately, and it's something that I've never really understood. I can see how someone would believe in God by faith or whatever, or how someone can look around and fail to see the need for God as some kind of underlying explanation of the world around us, but the middle ground on this topic is pretty shaky. I just can't relate to it at all.

There was a book I read last week, the Life of Pi, which came out a few years ago and was supposedly 'A story to make you believe in God', well I of course remain disenchanted with the concept. But the protagonist's attitude towards agnostics were similar to my own, which was a bit startling. He didn't mind atheists in the least, but a life of agnosticism seemed to him to be troubling.

So - is agnosticism just a default sort of mushy thing or can agnosticism be a deeply held position, defensible in its own right? Despite my perhaps overly harsh words, I am honestly asking and have an open mind.

Artvoice

Apparently Artvoice has published one of my friend's photos without credit or compensation.



Does anyone know what she can do to get in touch with someone over there who will make this right?

Urban Roots

Has anyone been to Urban Roots - 428 Rhode Island? it's like a co-op for plants.

Also (not at Urban Roots), found this crazy cool watermelon 'Moon and Stars' - this is what it actually looks like:

PinPals

I started a blog about a technical topic, and I tried googling the name of it to check my search rankings. That lead me to a site for finding gay prison pen pals (I swear accidentally!).

But the site is full of homo-erotic imagery and is sort of bizarre, especially this page: in which a gay man with a nipple ring is in prison reading the Turner Diaries.

Now, I am not sure if you are familiar with the Turner Diaries, but it is basically a white power manifesto.

Something strange is happening here.

Unpacking

image

The only part of the house that's done... the rest is still a mess.

Moving all our stuff makes me realize how cheap (e:james) and I are. We got all our furniture at thrift stores or used. It doesn't look too bad... a little threadbare maybe, but we spent less on all of our furniture in the whole house then some people spend on a couch.

It does take a while to look around and find just the right things though, so that you don't look too much like poor college kid ;)

Before

(e:james) and my new place on Ashland near Potomac.

The 'after' pictures will be up sometime this weekend - these pictures are before we started painting or anything.
