I don’t remember what this is

Every now and then, my brain gets infested with numbers and patterns, and this is a pattern I came up with, but I don’t remember what the pattern is. I think it has something to do with adding together the digits of multiples of some number or prime numbers. I don’t know. All I remember is that it definitely has a logic to it.

Twenty Eleven or Two Thousand and Eleven

I think it’s fine to say the latter, and here’s why. You ready? Okay, here goes. Nobody called the year 2000 the year twenty or twenty hundred. It’s not cumbersome to say two thousand eleven or two thousand and eleven. I don’t mind if people say twenty eleven, and fortunately, they don’t mind if people say two thousand eleven. In 2100, I’m definitely going to switch to saying it like two separate two digit numbers because saying two thousand one hundred would be cumbersome and awkward.

Something I noticed about the Spider-Man movie

I’m watching it right now, and something struck me as odd. The last time Ben talked to Peter, he told him that just because he has the power to do something doesn’t mean he should. He then told him that with great power comes great responsibility. Peter took it to mean that because he has the power to fight crime, that means he has to, but it seems to me that his real message was the opposite.

Is Yahweh Trustworthy?

I’ve heard a few christians say that the snake in the garden of blahblah was evil because his plan was to trick Woman into eating the forbidden fruit by first questioning Yahweh. (The thing about that, though, is that he just asked to clarify what Yahweh said. Woman answered him, clearing up any confusion he may have caused.) Why is it considered so bad to question Yahweh?

As I said in the parenthesis above, suggesting that it was a tangent when it really wasn’t, the serpent was simply clarifying what Yahweh had said. He was trying to get Woman to tell him what Yahweh told her, which he already knew. He then proceeded to reveal that what Yahweh said was a lie, which it was. Woman ate from the tree, and she didn’t die. She gave some fruit to Adam, and he didn’t die either. (This actually is a sidenote. The concept of spiritual death was invented by christian apologists to explain the story without Yahweh being a liar. Spiritual death is mentioned absolutely nowhere in the bible.)

So here’s the thing. To question Yahweh is said to be wrong, but right in the first part of the bible, it shows the importance of questioning him. He was a liar. Think of it this way. The bible says that Yahweh works in mysterious ways and that Yahweh shouldn’t be questioned. Whose word is the bible supposed to be? Hmmmm! The plot thickens! Why would a being not want his methods or motivations to be questioned? Because he’s not what he says he is!

Christians, wake up. Your god is evil.

Moons of Pluto

I know it’s not technically a planet any more, but it was for most of my life, and it has moons, so it counts for this series. Pluto has three known moons.
——
Charon
Nix
Hydra

Fun fact: Pluto and Charon are tidally locked with each other, which means the same side of each always face each other. Earth’s moon is tidally locked with Earth, but it isn’t mutual as in the case of Pluto and Charon.
