Sometimes you see something that simply blows your mind.

I felt exactly the same thing...until I watched the NASA Press conference; the whole picture is based on data only and not much of it. They have to fill in much of the picture according to what they think it will look like according to said data - kind of takes away the magic for me. I originally thought it was a real photo or some kind of footage. Damn.

Funny. I got asked the question the other day, "had I seen it, the black hole?"

IMHO, It's a bit of a loaded question, especially as the whole point of a black hole is an absence of any visible matter. Therefore, as I've seen pretty much "fuck all" in the picture, can I say "I've seen it"?

I have no issues with people who don't like gays. I think that's just personal choice and however stupid it might be, it's just one of those things.

To use 'god' as an excuse for the dislike is just silly though. There's no proof of god, there never was any proof, so why do otherwise intelligent people seem to speak for him/her/it?

:( Notre Dame Cathedral is burning. Awful to watch. All that history...
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

If I was religious, I think I would have given up 'believing' by now. It seems to be a total waste of time to me.
