Why my Father was Agnostic

In a recent non-scientific pole at least half of my Facebook friends who responded said they believe the earth is 4,000 years old, not 4.5 billion years old.

My father could not accept Earth was only 4,000 years old, so he “doubted” God. He described himself as agnostic, which he defined as “someone who wants to believe but can’t.”

My brother, a psychiatrist and Episcopalean minister (and who believes Earth is 4.5 billion years old) lamented my father did not embrace Christ before his death, even though my brother promotes the Elementary Wave Theory of Lewis Little, our cousin.

 

A different way to look at it

The other day I was barreling down the highway at almost 1/10 the speed of sound! Mach 0.0977493 to be precise. Would you believe I was actually going over 33 and 1/2 meters per second! That’s 120 km per hour!

Alas, I was going 75 mph, the speed limit around here.

How big will the impact of nanotechnology be in my life in the next 20 years?

You asked: “How big will the impact of nanotechnology be in my life in the next 20 years?”

Great question and the answer depends on whether you’ll get sick and need nanotechnology. Twenty years is not long. I’ve lived twenty years 4 times over. Each time the situation is basically the same. You are born, grow old, get diseased and die. They have new cures, and new medicine, but you’re still going to grow old and eventually die.

Nanotechnology, if ever realized, will be another medical breakthrough to cure this and that, but you’ll still grow old and die eventually.

Is there any real proof aliens exist?

None, as of yet. We suspect microbiology may exist on one of the moons in our solar system and that would be alien life.

As for intelligent, comprehending, space-faring beings, well, we don’t even have proof of alien microbes yet, so no.

Conversely, there is no proof aliens don’t exist either!
