Adorable #RyanAdams 7”.
I believe in science. I believe in evolution. I believe in Nate Silver and Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Christopher Hitchens. Although I do admit he could be a kind of an asshole. I cannot get behind some supreme being who weighs in on the Tony Awards while a million people get whacked with machetes. I don’t believe a billion Indians are going to hell. I don’t think we get cancer to learn life lessons, and I don’t believe that people die young because God needs another angel. I think it’s just bullshit, and on some level, I think we all know that, I mean, don’t you?
Look I understand that religion makes it easier to deal with all of the random shitty things that happen to us. And I wish I could get on that ride, I’m sure I would be happier. But I can’t. Feelings aren’t enough. I need it to be real.

I’m a nerd, but not in the useful “you’ll all be working for me one day when I invent jet packs” way. I’m a nerd in the “I have very strong opinions about history and literature and will yell them at you if you give me even the slightest opportunity” way. And that one does not pay well.
Enjoy some sea-side dining this summer with these Ernst Haeckel plates from my Thinx Shop on Zazzle
White Oak Borer (Goes tigrinus) - larvae live in living white and related oaks - , but which one? Where is a Coleopterist when you need one… Collected by Bob Trumbule, fab entomologist for the state of Maryland in our building (likely because there elements of dead wood present).
