A lovely bit of information technology

Yes, once all electronic information conveyance was analog.

When this old your computer is, work this well it will not!

    Excuse me while I perve slightly over the old valve tech. I used to use valve amplifiers and reel-to-reel tape machines every day. I’d hate to go back to wrestling with the clunky old things, but they do have an aura and a tactility that software can’t recreate.

    Nearly finished perving….

    ANYWAY, I just sailed in from a comment you made on Pharyngula, compelled to say I know exactly what you mean about religious believers and their fear that their superstitions are built on sand. I attended seminary, and watched a class of 40 catholics who wanted to be priests go into theological shellshock every day, as they learned about the history of what they took to be self-evidently unquestionable.

    It’s almost impossible now to recapture the state of mind that made me want to believe in something incomprehensible, by believing in many things which were unbelievable.

    Happily and openly atheist now. And apparently called “Brother Jackhammer of Mild Reason”.

    Welcome Brother Jackhammer! I’d forgotten about Unitarian Jihad Names. Guess I should look at my About page from time to time. Mine seems to fit in with recent Pepper Spray related news.

    I know exactly what you mean about recapturing the mind of belief. I used to, or thought I did, but now I don’t.
