new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

the antikythera mechanism on scientific american

on scientific american:

hundreds and thousands of years of lost time -- how much would we had progressed is the darkness and superstition hadn't halted human ingenuity in its tracks? i keep wondering where we would be without religion, and i keep concluding that it would be in a much better place.

  1. ah, I've always wondered how much ahead we would be if there hadn't been for xtianity trying to kill the ancient culture & sciences...

    I'd bet you that most Greeks today would identify themselves with xtianity and they don't really understand that what they think as high values, science, reasoning, culture, view of the universe and human nature of the ancients were attacked and almost destroyed by Byzantium/xtianity. What these 2 civilizations mostly have in common is elements of language.

    This article on the Antikythera mechanism complements the story in the videos.

  2. thanks, george...
    great article
