Evolution: The Remarkable History of a Scientific Theory (Book Review)

I recommend this book to anyone interested in both the findings of the Theory of Evolution and its historical, epic struggle, which continues even today, and will continue for years to come. Edward J. Larson begins with the evolutionary theorists, such as the catastrophists, leading up to Charles Darwin (men like Cuvier, Lamarck, Owen, etc.), until the modern synthesis we have today. Larson is an excellent writer, which is why he won the Pulitzer Price for Summer of the Gods in 1998, and makes Darwinism accessible to the layman, while remaining informed and extremely caring about this undeniably significant, controversial scientific theory. Its possible mechanisms for breeding forth all the magnificent diversity of life on this earth have themselves, as Larson meticulously highlights, been a matter of vigorous scientific dispute among evolutionists, and Larson uses the hypotheses and disputes over their certainty as a mechanism to fuel his book forward.

The Outsider (Book Review)

“Given that you’ve got to die, it obviously doesn’t matter exactly how or when.” The Outsider is a novella which addresses the problem of the nihilist. Given that we all cease to exist one day, as far as Meursault, the protagonist, can see, it doesn’t make a difference when or how that time comes, because afterwards there is only nothingness. And so Meursault embraces nothingness while alive, within the context of what he keeps repeating throughout the novel: “It didn’t really matter.” To him, even getting his head decapitated in his youth doesn’t make a difference in the long run, since he will not be able to dwell on or remember it (or create any new thoughts or ideas, for that matter) immediately after his cranium hits the ground. “Everyone was privileged. There were only privileged people. The others too would be condemned one day,” he says. Indeed, he enjoyed life for all the aesthetics and sensuality it had to offer him, and he knew it was a privilege to be able to experience existing at all. But, to him, in the end, nothing mattered, because we would all eventually be condemned – to death. Read moreRead more

American Reunion (2012) Review


I still remember seeing American Pie the very night it came out on July 9 of 1999 at the drive in.  Me and the people I was with laughed our asses off.  It was something miraculous to me that movie.  What I found really unbelievable, however, was that part two made me laugh even harder, and American Wedding even harder than that.  I love that trilogy.  It should have been left a trilogy, however.  Some producers simply shun the very notion of quitting while you’re ahead, so it seems.  You know the expression “squeezing a lemon?”  Well, unfortunately, the makers of the American Pie franchise tried to squeeze one for American Reunion and all that came out was pulp. SPOILERS AHEAD! Read moreRead more
