God and the existential Catch-22

So in the midst of all my mind-crunching work, I am having an existential crisis. Intrigued? Well, click on good sir/madam/other

Alright, so here's the deal. I have my final school project due on May 3 and, believe it or not, that's a very tight deadline right now. Plus, I'm working 20-40 hours a week at my job so I don't have time to post right now, unless you guys want to hear about types of methodologies and things (some of) my co-workers do that piss me off. Actually, I don't want to write about any of that.

Anyway, I have a bunch of half-written posts I might have time to finish but I'm not sure if I'll have that time.

Don't forget about me and follow me on Twitter so you know when posts go up. Or email me ( and I will let you know. Peace!

The Round-Up #12

Welcome to the Round-Up. Throughout the week, I tweet links to anything unique or funny that I find online, via DWG's Twitter feed, DownWithGT. Then, every week or two - typically on the weekend - I post the 3(ish) most unique or funny tweeted pages. So, without further ado, here, ladies and gentlemen, is the Round-Up #12

I wish people were smart

I wish people were smart. I wish that when I talked, they listened and responded constructively. I wish that intelligence was assumed so that there was no need for people to defame all else as "stupid" or disparage themselves by pointing out "fails."

I know that people have the ability to think and think deeply. I think that in many cases they work too hard to do so. But I think they should at least acknowledge when they decline to use their intellect. No more do I want to hear someone tell me one thing, refuse to listen to me explain another, and tell me I'm wrong. Engage or admit inability to judge.

The thing is, judging is rampant. Everyone judges all the time. Sometimes I think that it has become a past time, what with every action and every comment being examined for flaws and stupidity. When did we lose the ability to accept without determining rightness? Why does everyone feel this need, as if judging all proves intelligence?

Everyone's a critic and a critic is no more than a nay-sayer. To be truly intelligent is to know when you don't know and to understand when you don't understand. So when I hear something defamed as "stupid," I wonder whether that word might be better applied to the defamer, although I much prefer "willfully ignorant."
