Purpose one: writing a travelogue to describe my various trips.

Purpose two: muse.

Steven Weinberg on Religion

I have always thought of religion as being a moral lever: it can make good people behave better and bad people behave worse. Since I read this Steven Weinberg quote, I wonder if he has it right instead:

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

Mt Hamilton Ride

My dad is back in Denmark. We did some fun things while he was here, and I will post as media becomes available.

Here is a video of a ride down from Mt Hamilton. You can watch it on the Youtube clips in two parts, or download the full .wmv file. The download is much better quality in both picture and sound, but may not work if you run some of that alt-ware from Apple.
