Assyrology and study of writing systems

I've developed a fairly strong interest in Assyrology and the study of writing systems. Not only have I been reading about it online wherever I can find information, but I got a trial one-week subscription to a journals database so i could read some book reviews of recently published books on the ex...

And no wonder! :D Being the confused and mixed up entity it is.

I have entered the head space where I wonder how ANYONE can think straight, given the crappy tools we have to work with.

neuroscience and atheism

I'm taking an online course on human neuroanatomy, and from what I've seen so far, the human central nervous system is totally haphazard and a total dog's breakfast from a design point of view. This course has totally cured me of any residual theism I ever had. There is no way any deity, sane or ins...

an inconvenient truth

I finally did get banned from aven. Well, technically suspended for two weeks, but I'm treating it like a lifetime ban. The surface reason they offered is totally different from the REAL reason. The real reason is that I posted that my city, Toronto, is ruled with an iron fist by a small, loosely or...

discourse on issues with asexuality

People often have a problem with you when you try to get into their pants, but they almost never have a problem with you when you DON'T try to get into their pants. Sure, it's possible for someone to be attracted to you, and, when you don't respond, to feel rejected and get vengeful, but in nearly a...

Re: about to get banned from AVEN

Rosetta, you express precisely my concern. People too often define themselves as what they are IN ADDITION to asexual rather than primarily as asexual. That hardly fosters a community of any sort. Frankly, I feel like we're being exploited to promote the agendas of other minorities. Those other mino...

something wicked this way comes

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States started hearing arguments on the California same-sex marriage ban. Been there, done that. I'm up in Canada. Years ago, our own supreme court struck down a legal provision defining marriage as "the union of one man and one woman." That was never...

Re: about to get banned from AVEN

I look forward to hearing what you have to say about AVEN once you come back from your trip. Meanwhile, enjoy your sojourn in the City of Free Love. :)

Re: about to get banned from AVEN

I'll google "storms model" to see whether there's any science behind it. What is avalanche asexual forum? I'm mostly concerned about the fact that AVEN does have by far the highest profile of all asexual communities, so newcomers to the topic will keep being misinformed until we have an in...

about to get banned from AVEN

I'm about to get banned from AVEN for expressing some inconvenient truths. Let's see how they are received here. AVEN's definition of asexuality as lack of sexual attraction is purely political and has zero basis in fact. Someone else could assert that asexuality is having three legs and that assert...
