So… the three of you reading this must have noticed that I updated the design of my blog (finally!). Kinda simple but far from done. I’m not even going to try to support older browsers with this one. If it works, it works. If not, you’ll get a jumbled mess. You shouldn’t even be using any browser older than 6 months anyway. While thinking about the site and what kind of stuff will go on here, I figured my experience doing web stuff is kinda extensive, so I might as well add posts related to web design, graphics, etc… If not for you three, but for me as a reference in the future because I tend to forget things easily.

However, the scientist in me has thought about this issue for a long time now, and I’m come to one simple conclusion… THERE IS NO FREE WILL The three of you reading this will no doubt be thinking, “What the hell is he talking about?” Well, putting religion and the notion of a supreme omnipotent being to one side for the sake of argument, scientifically, it stands to reason that we as individuals would be free to choose our own destinies. However, this is scientifically impossible. Modern science has been in search of an all encompassing universal equation that will describe the universe and all the mechanics that drive it, from a molecular standpoint all the way up to a planetary level. With this complex equation, one would be able to account for with exact certainty the various properties of every single particle of the universe. It will also be able to predict what those properties will be in a future date. So how does the universal equation take away free will? Well if you can predict where every particle...
