Of the Number 50.

This post has nothing to do with the number 50, expect due to the fact that it is my 50th post.

On to the post.

A while ago when a certain Mr Tom Rogers was staying with us, himself and I were searching for Douglas Adams quotes and we came across this Gem.

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"
This basically states that people should be able to see the natural beauty of something, without having to make up reason why it is so.
Shortly after reading this, I was having an argument about religion, with them arguing for the Christian.I used this in the arguement, and it was basically ignored,

So, I don't know what I find more upsetting about the Human Race, That we do feel the need to make up a supernatural/spiritual reason for things being the way they are, or that they are no longer as understanding, or philosophical as they used to be, Or if they are, they never show it.

There is also a part of Occam's Razor that says another something along the same lines as Douglas Adams quote. Translated from Latin it reads "No more things should be believed exist then are absolutely necessary."

I know is a very anti-religious post, and I would like to say that, although I am anti-religion, I don't believe there is nothing spiritual going on in the world.

Thanks for reading, Till next time,


  1. Hmm, Indeed.

    But people always seem to need a spiritual belief or tie to something to believe it so.
    If there is no tie to something that could be greater or something that has made it that way for a purpose and such then most people will ignore it.

    Some objects to some people may seem beautiful for no reason at all but its pure beauty in itself like a picture or sculpture or a nice garden or waterfall.

    People have changed.
    People have become stupid.
