Jonathan Starr's Blog Thoughts on C#, Ajax, WCF, LINQ, Agile et al. Religion
Buddhabrot
I apologize for not writing into the blog for some time. A few weeks ago, I attended the wedding of my good friend, Michael Bittel. His blog on Africa, while it is updated infrequently, certainly certainly helps me keep things in perspective. Also, I have continued to do some work for www.1CCN.com . Please check out this web site/ phone application for project management if you, or someone you know, is in the construction industry. We recently added the ability to add pictures to status updates. ......

Belated Thought Experiment
I admit that I have been remiss updating this blog with thought experiments as promised. So, to make up for this I have a good one for you - especially those of you who are theologically minded. Let's start with the premise that God exists and that God created a perfect world for humankind. If that is the case, then it is no accident that the world's population has so many different belief systems.

A Modest Mideast Proposal
I know that politics is a taboo subject for a blog devoted to technology. However, I have come across an interesting and, in my opinion, logical solution to the problems in the Mideast. My view is an American one, and perhaps I don't take into account all of the needs of other participants. However you may at least find my view provocative if not entertaining or feasible. There are a few points that I need to make first (like mathematical lemmas), and then I will combine these points to make my proposal. ......

Sex and Religion and Other Thoughts in 1984
I just finished listening to the audio version of George Orwell's dystopian book, 1984... While I first read this in seventh grade (MANY years ago), I was fascinated by how many more things I caught this time. 1. It looks to me that Winston was safe until he was corrupted by Julia - which harkens back memories of the Garden of Eden story where Eve convinces Adam to eat an apple from the Tree of Knowledge.

Reaction to "Why Atheists Are Not Very Bright"
I just finished reading Dinesh D'Souza's essay Why Atheists are Not Very Bright which is also an excerpt from his book, What's So Great About Christianity. I am not an atheist, but I can certainly see atheism as a reasonable point of view. Consequently I am responding to his piece. Dinesh starts out parroting an argument from Kant that we cannot know everything about the world because we only come to know the world throught the filter of our senses. According to D'Souza, this implies that (1) we ......
