Extraterrestrial Life as a Statistical Certainty
MY CASE AGAINST GOD
FIRST PRINCIPLE: EVIDENCE IS THE BEST, MOST RELIABLE WAY FOR HUMANS TO APPROXIMATE TRUTH AS WE INTERROGATE THE WORLD OF EXPERIENCE.
Finally, let's set the odds of life ever emerging on any given planet at 10 billion to one. In that case, life would emerge on 6,000,000,000,000 planets. That means if the odds of life emerging are 10 billion to one, then life would emerge on about six trillion planets. As Lawrence Krauss astutely observes, "The universe is big and old and, as a result, rare events happen all the time." Extraterrestrial life is a statistical certainty.
Won third place award with Demon Tales at National Art League's 87th annual show in Queens, NY.
April 2017, a quote found in The Death of Satan
“Nothing happened to me, Officer Starling. I happened. You can’t reduce me to a set of influences. You’ve given up good and evil for behaviorism, Officer Starling. You’ve got everything in moral, dignity pants – nothing is ever anybody’s fault. Look at me, Officer Starling. Can you stand to say I’m evil?”

June 2013 I spent some time tinkering with ideas, "Unclean" is an example. Dimensions of time are represented by a rectangle with two primary colors, blue and yellow. The rock formations within a forest appear to create an image of an unclean spirit trapped within a dimension. An old woman who has leprosy looks from outside the spatial plane free from the unclean spirit. She looks like a defiled spirit but is not. On top is a kid who is trapped within the rectangle. He created the picture and is held by it. He cannot be helped but the old lady can, she is outside of it and free.
Finally, will be spending the weekend in the Kaaterskill Falls area. Looking forward to the Cole & Church estates and the foliage.
Have not been to Kaaterskill Falls yet. Not able to shoot any interesting shots for painting yet. That's o.k. for now since I have two paintings - one in progress & the other lined up. Will be leaving for Virginia in the middle of August and may get some shots there. I wonder how the Natural Bridge area will be?
Completing website. Using this month to try and complete the detailed portions of the site. I am including some photos taken in various forests - Bear Mountain, Catskills, West Virginia. These go well with the paintings and help to document my hiking travels. Hope to have more in the future.
