Carnival of the Godless #113
The Carnival of the Godless arrived at Daylight Atheism a few days ago. Check it out if you haven’t already. It’s unusually fat this time around.
I normally try to read all the articles and suggest one or two that either jump out at me as being exceptional or are related to things we’ve discussed recently here.
For some reason, my attention span is about 15 seconds tonight. I guess the Internet has completely ruined me. When I was younger, I could spend hours on something. I remember my 8th grade science teacher telling us “At your age, you have a short attention span. As your brain matures, you’ll gain the ability to focus on things for long periods of time.”
I thought to myself “HA!! You’re wrong! I can concentrate for long periods of time already! Bow down before my superior brain!” I then crushed his trachea purely with mind power.
OK. Those last two sentences are lies. At the time, I just thought it odd that my science teacher made a statement that contradicted my own experience. There’s probably a lesson in there somewhere, but I’ve already spent more than 15 — Hey, look! Another mermaid!
