An Agnostic Christmas

Posted January 13th 2014 at 12:39 PM by Mahray


I'm an agnostic. I'm not proud of it any more than I'm ashamed of it. It's just my own personal belief structure. Doesn't affect the way I live my life for the most part, while I have a personal moral and ethical framework it isn't directly related to my spirituality and beliefs.

I would also like to point out that these are my beliefs, and they may not apply to anyone else. That doesn't stop me talking about them, of course, but I'd like everyone to consider these in the context...

Sex Positive Safety Talk

Posted September 28th 2013 at 11:08 AM by Mahray




So here it is. The Sex Positive Safety Talk. A little of the basic philosophy behind it first.

Sex is wonderful! Sex is fun, and funny (hilarious sometimes), and life-affirming, and great! But sex can also have some serious drawbacks. The idea behind staying safe is to have the fun and awesome and wonderful side of sex and avoid the pitfalls.

So hereís some of the problems you can encounter. Iím not talking about positions and acts much here, not the...

The Great Moral Compass

Posted September 14th 2013 at 06:48 AM by Mahray

The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in a time of moral crisis, remain neutral
Dante


Dante said it, a very long time ago now. While I don't believe in a literal hell, and I'm uncertain of a metaphorical hell, I do have serious issues with people who try to remain so neutral when times are dire enough to warrant action. The problem is, of course, that this implies that in a time of moral crisis, there is a choice. That's true, though, there's always a choice....

Faith and the Scientific Method

Posted September 4th 2013 at 11:48 AM by Mahray




Darth Vader: Donít be too proud of this technological terror youíve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.
Admiral Motti: Donít try to frighten us with your sorcerous ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the rebelsí hidden fortressÖ

Mix of creative and real

Posted June 26th 2013 at 12:57 PM by Mahray

This one is a work of fiction, however as Iíve previously written - I find it hard to play a character I donít believe in. In this case, this is about 80% me talking.

An old friend, Mahray, dropped in to visit. He told me a story of sorts, then had a drink and left again. Bit off a weird one, to be honest.

Mask of the Abyss

Posted May 11th 2013 at 11:19 AM by Mahray



All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts
Shakespeare

And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.
Nietzsche

Two quotes. From two vastly different people. Both have meaning in my life, and relevance to todayís topic. It was difficult for me to come up with a title for this essay. I struggled for many long hours when...

The Black Dog

Posted May 3rd 2013 at 03:04 PM by Mahray

ďLumos,Ē Harry muttered, and a light appeared at the end of his wand, almost dazzling him. He held it high over his head, and the pebble-dashed walls of number two suddenly sparkled; the garage door gleamed, and between them Harry saw, quite distinctly, the hulking outline of something very big, with wide, gleaming eyes. -- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


The great black dog, that vile beast that takes over the mind and soul and sits on you, never letting up,...
