I don’t agree with Bill Maher that often, but his little rant about Christian values starting at the 2:48 mark, I agree with that.
Dear NASA, Happy Birthday! To Celebrate, We’re Shutting You Down. Love, Congress
55 years ago today, NASA was founded. Now, to celebrate, Congress has shut it down (along with the rest of the federal government). Just 549 of NASA’s 18,000+ employees are able to go to work, and those only because their jobs are so critical that there’s no choice (like keeping our astronauts alive on the ISS, little things like that).
Contrary to previous reports, though, the Curiosity rover will not be totally shut off during the shutdown, but JPL’s status will be reviewed on a week by week basis and NASA’s temporary closure means that not much Mars science is going to get done, or really any space science for that matter.
Sorry, NASA. Shitty birthday.
We’ll make it up to you.

Christian Swingers: A new dating site for ‘devout Christian couples who still want to have an active love life and share it with another, in good faith!’
Sorry it took me a bit to get back to you. I haven’t been keeping up with this blog as much lately.
From what I’ve read, Indonesia can be a pretty rough place for non-religious and religious, depending on the sect. Since I don’t know much about your situation, I can only hope you find a group of like minded friends.
The problem with religious texts is they are too open to interpretation. People love to twist words to suit their goals. It happens here and has been happening for thousands of years and will keep happening. We just have to educate and debate and hope reason outshines faith.
