Whimsy and studiousness from a nice lady who lives in Michigan and loves Objectivism.

Edison and The Primacy of Existence

As Thomas Edison will be honored tonight through the illumination of his most famous invention, I'd like to post his very interesting "primacy of existence" quote:
Nature is what we know. We do not know the gods of religions. And nature is not kind, or merciful, or loving. If God made me—the fabled God of the three qualities of which I spoke: mercy, kindness, love—He also made the fish I catch and eat. And where do His mercy, kindness, and love for that fish come in? No; nature made us—nature did it all—not the gods of the religions.
Edison was known to be either a deist or an atheist. "Nature is not kind, or merciful, or loving" -- this is most meaningful part for tonight, regardless of what environmentalists wish you to believe. And nature sure as heck shouldn't be worshipped. Bravo, Mr. Edison!

Edison Hour is Lighting Up Facebook

This Saturday, March 28, 8:30-930 p.m., please be a responsible and grateful Industrial Revolutionist and TURN ON YOUR LIGHTS -- join Edison Hour on Facebook.

In a bit of coincidental intellectual greatness, the University of Michigan Students of Objectivism recently had the same "Edison Hour" lightbulb over their heads that I had last year.  Rational minds do think alike!

Protest those unfortunate souls who would admit guilt for living in the most innovative country in human history and apologize for human happiness and success. Remember, this is not about conservation. We are not running out of energy. And don't be fooled by the unsubstantiated propaganda that human beings are destroying a fragile earth -- our planet is not fragile and we can do nothing to change the weather, silly people. :-)

So be sure to GO EDISON on the 28th. Let's make this the brightest celebration on earth!
