Description:

Blaise Pascal, French philosopher and scientist as well as a follower of Jesus Christ. He has been quoted as saying:

"Certainty! Joy! Peace! I forget the world and everything but God!...I submit myself absolutely to Jesus Christ my Redeemer."

So, I present this wallpaper in honor of Blaise Pascal, for all of us "Jesus Freaks" that we too might glory in the One who was, and is and is to come!

Isn't Pascal a dead language? ;)

You didn't care to answer the last time, so I'll just ask it again. You homepage is some weird atheist test that is so dumb I cannot leave it uncommented. I'll ask you three questions:

Number 1: Coke cans

There is a difference between humans (and other living things) and coke cans - living things live, and reproduce. I for one have never seen a coke can having children, and this is a necessity for evolution. Plus, as coke cans don't usually reproduce, there is no mutation or selection in the non-existent reproductions process of coke cans. Thus, your point is not valid.

Number 2: The eye

The eye didn't just pop up by coincidence, it evolved. The nature of evolution (as opposed to revolution) is that something doesn't just pop up, but develops from something simpler. Snakes for example see through something that modern science considers a simple prototype of the eye. In fact, the evolution of the eye is pretty well known by now, so I consider this point invalid as well.

Number 3: Oranges

When I take 50 oranges and throw them up into the air, I don't expect them to come down in 10 rows, 5 oranges each. There are two flaws in this argument, however. First of all, evolution only requires this sort of coincidence in the very beginning. Once you have proteins, the rest is a cakewalk. Second of all, evolution didn't only have one try to form proteins. The process took about 2 billion years, and amino acids react a lot quicker than thrown oranges do. Plus, there were quite a lot of them. Well, if I threw oranges in the air for 2 billion years, I'd be quite disappointed it they didn't fall in 5x10 a couple of thousand times. And I'd be even more disappointed if said amino acids didn't react a couple of trillion times in the same time period. As amino acids are found in comets, this should explain biogenesis pretty well, I think.

The rest of this test basically states that one cannot prove the non-existence of god. This is true, but can easily be reverted into "neither can you prove it exists", so it doesn't really make a point for religion.

Tim, you never contribute to KDElook.org, except by infecting the site with these horrible wallpapers that you know will get bad ratings. I've never seen you post a comment on something besides your own, besides someone else's stupid religious propaganda. What gives? Are you more into turning people off of religion than you are of art?

Actually, I'm working on one regarding biochemistry and irreducable complexity. Interesting stuff!

Thanks,

That wouldn't happen to be Michael Behe's book Darwin's Black Box, would it?

I like it. But you should consider saving it in another format. JPEG compression makes the text in the blue band look blocky.
I think png would be better ;)

Very nice. Every once in a while I think we
need to look back to those who have come
before us and pioneered the computer
industry. Great thanks for reminding us
of how we got here.
