Allopathy vs. Naturopathy/Homeopathy

So…now naturopaths want to prescribe because they want to be treated “like every other” health professional. Speaking as a future health professional, that’s bullshit. I can’t prescribe either and never should be allowed. You know why? Because it’s not my expertise, just like it’s not theirs.

Star Trek: Generations

I’ve popped in my original 1194 VHS tape (that’s right, kids — movies used to come on tapes) of Star Trek: Generations because I haven’t seen it in a while.

See the third comment (Mojo’s response) for an example of how to handle to such things.

wedding faux pas

Aw….Mojo’s mom who died of cancer returned to haunt us at our wedding in the form of a spectral butterfly. That’s so sweet.

UPDATE: The saga continues. More…

Fundie Friday: Why Islam is not an evil religion

I find PZ’s (and other atheist blogs — I don’t mean to single him out, but he came to mind) unbridled hatred towards Muslims a bit grating and here’s why: More…

These posters/charts are all awesome and I couldn’t choose which to highlight. Go take a look.
