Today was literally a lazy day for me. I never even got out of my PJs =P
It was also a very good day: the Doctor Who DVD set that my sister borrowed arrived in the mail! Heh, and of course I immediately played some of it ^^
Didn't drag myself out of bed til after 2 this afternoon. I was up very late talking *pokes SomeGuy, heh*, and then I was listening to my Odd Logic CD and kind of dozing through it on and off. It's been forever since I heard the end of this particular CD, so when I woke up at one point and was hearing tracks I didn't recognize, I kind of kept myself awake in order to hear it. Even though it made me dead-dog-tired, I'm glad I did. Now I want to go back and listen to the end over and over, those are some of the best tracks on the album.
Tomorrow is pot luck after church, but since I don't go anymore, I will take my parents' extended absence as an opportunity to catch up on some anime or maybe watch a concert DVD.
For tomieharley and anyone else interested...
"The God Delusion" is a book by Richard Dawkins, scientist and atheist. Here's what the back cover says...
In his sensational international bestseller, the preeminent scientist and outspoken atheist Richard Dawkins delivers a hard-hitting, impassioned, but humorous rebuttal of religious belief. With rigor and wit, Dawkins eviscerates the arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of the existence of a supreme being. He makes a compelling case that faith is not just irrational but potentially deadly. In a preface written for the paperback edition, Dawkins responds to some of the controversies the book has incited. This brilliantly argued, provocative book challenges all of us to examine our beliefs, no matter what beliefs we hold.
I know some of you probably don't like the sound of that, but don't think any less of me for it ^^
I don't like to lable myself, but if I had to I would say I'm Agnostic, meaning I am a sceptic when it comes to things of a spiritual nature. But I wouldn't mind reading a book that puts forth a spiritual argument, as long as it wasn't preeching rhetoric.
