About

My dusty loft contains loads of stuff I find interesting. Most is useless stuff hence the blog’s name.

This is a public blog so the contents will not be very personal in nature.

Warning
It is probable that this blog can include content that may offend people with religious beliefs that disagree with scientific theories generally accepted by the scientific community.

This applies in particular to:

  • Newton’s Theory of Universal Gravitation
    (the Earth is in orbit around the Sun in accordance with Newton’s Laws)
  • The Special Theory of Relativity
    (there is no absolute reference frame)
  • The General Theory of Relativity
    (Space/time is curved by massive bodies)
  • The Big Bang Theory
    (The Universe started some 13.73 (+/- .12) thousand million years ago and has been expanding ever since)
  • The Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection
    (All living and extinct creatures on Earth (including man) evolved from earlier common ancestors)

Read about my take on categories and comments.

I also have a list of books I recently have read.

    I have enjoyed discovering your blog. I share your interest in good books, including a lot of science fiction, and a pesky belief in the accepted theories of modern science (and sound scientific method). I like Asimov and Heinlein among many others. Have you read John Varley? I have been struggling with a blog of my own and find yours a calmer more organized version of what I hope to achieve, especially with your ‘read this year’ posts. I may borrow the little form you use to write up books, if that is ok.
    Thanks!

    Thanks for your comment. I have no objection to you borrowing the format of the “read this year” posts. After all I borrowed it myself. As to John Varley – no I have not read him. I am not sure why since it looks likely I would like his work. Thanks for the recommendation. I will check him out.
