Getting a "higher education" often consists of learning more and more about less and less while understanding less and less about more and more.

 ^ Cosmology and the Law of Parsimony

In this essay, I advocate that there was never a Big Bang, that the red shift isn't a Doppler effect, that the universe will never end, and a few other interesting things.

An earlier version of Cosmology and the Law of Parsimony was published on pages 25-28 of the March/April 2004 issue, Volume 22, No. 2, Issue #139, of The Thought, the bimonthly journal of the Philosophers Guild.  The website of the Philosophers Guild has vanished.  Therefore, I've posted here a copy of that issue of The Thought.  If there's any objection from the Philosopher's Guild to the appearance here of that issue, then I'll remove it.

 ^ Hale-Bopp Object
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
When I first heard about the Hale-Bopp Comet, I wrote this little essay.  In the essay, I speculated that the object wasn't a comet at all but was, instead, an approaching generation ship.  I suggested that the occupants of the ship were using a light sail to decelerate into our solar system.  I was wrong.  Here's the essay anyway.

There's An Arrow In The Logic -or- Maybe Pie Are Square, Maybe Not

Do you believe that it's impossible for an arrow to reach it's target?  Do you believe that it's impossible to divide by zero?  The proof is in the pie.
