Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

What's weird about Total Drek is there's just no telling what you'll find.

Normally, that sort of title would be vaguely threatening, given the sorts of things I blog about. In this case, however, it might be mildly less concerning. A while back I wrote a post finally completing my series on atheism. I tried, in my own clumsy way, to express why being an atheist makes me happy. Well, oddly enough, a passage from a song my wife recently exposed me to may do it even better. You can listen to the whole song thanks to the wonder of YouTube but, really, the passage in question is simply this:

This is how it works
You’re young until you’re not
You love until you don’t
You try until you can’t
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath

No, this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
You take the things you like
And try to love the things you took
And then you take that love you made
And stick it into some
Someone else’s heart
Pumping someone else’s blood
And walking arm in arm
You hope it don’t get harmed
But even if it does
You’ll just do it all again

And on the radio
You hear November Rain
That solo’s awful long
But it’s a good refrain

Some people like to talk about the meaning of life. Me, I think life is so incredible already, demanding some higher power give it meaning is just churlish.

Carry on.
