Honoring Katherine G Johnson NASA Physicist Mathematician

Katherine G. Johnson, a physicist, and a mathematician who started high school when she was 10 years old, and college when she was 15, she died in 2020 at the age of 102.

I want to honor this human-computer genius because of what she represents to me: intelligence, character, courage, strength, love for science, life, for freedom. I just love one of her quotes: “I didn’t feel any segregation. I knew it was there, but I didn’t feel it.” Oh, I forgot to tell you: she is an American woman who was considered a “colored computer” when she worked for NASA back in the fifties (color, gender, race, country patriotism are not that important to me. Intelligence is)

I mention one of her many quotes because that happens to me all the time. While people talk about being discriminated against because they are short, fat, thin, black, brown, white, yellow, tall, thin, whatever ( I am sure I fit in many of these “colorful” name-callings), I just care about going on, about to continue with my interests in life: I am focussed. And that is what she was: a focussed-stubborn very smart woman who didn’t waste her time on menial things. She dedicated her mind to science. Political and social hate was put to the side, off the path she walked.

It is an honor for me to walk this earth Mrs. Katherine Johnson walks. It is a privilege for me to live on this earth at the same time Mrs. Johnson lives. 100 years old and she breathes the same air I do. How lucky I am! I send her my most utter respect and admiration for her work in science and exemplary life as a human being.

Saturday Night For The Freethinker: What About Humanism? Part 2

“Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead.” — Kurt Vonnegut

Humanism is a way of thinking about the world. In modern times, humanism is close to secularism. It refers to a non-theistic approach to life, looking to science instead of religious dogma in order to understand the world. The term was made widely known by scientists in the mid-20th century.

A true Humanist lives according to the Golden Rule of Humanism, which means trying to empathize with other people, including those who may be very different from us, thinking differently from us, having beliefs we don’t have, etc.

“Humanists recognize that it is only when people feel free to think for themselves, using reason as their guide, that they are best capable of developing values that succeed in satisfying human needs and serving human interests:” Isaac Asimov

Saturday Night For The Freethinker: Freedom From Religion

No matter your beliefs, respect always comes first. 

Religion is like a pair of shoes…..Find one that fits for you, but don’t make me wear your shoes.George Carlin

Don’t mention me about your religion! Show me your heart! If you have the heart of an innocent child, you have the best religion, even if you are a nonbeliever!

I am an agnostic; I do not pretend to know what many ignorant men are sure of. –Clarence Darrow

Saturday Night For The Freethinker: The Right To Question Everything

It’s our responsibility as conscientious human beings with a heathy brain to question everything. This is how we inform ourselves, grow, evolve, and get smarter everyday.

Many people are so gullible that tend to believe everything that is fed to them through MSM, social media, politics, religion, etc. And they follow like sheep. One of the main problems I have noticed is the mental fanaticism and radicalism in people.

It is my opinion that no matter if someone believes with fanaticism in any god or behaves like an atheist zealot, then that person tend to absorbe the wrong information, create false thoughts, and make wrong decisions.

There are many religions that oppress, spread fear or hope (heaven or hell for example), to control and stop you from questioning their beliefs, and make you follow. Atheists extremists can be a pain in the buttocks too. They think that they are always right because they support their lack of belief on science (evolution).

So you see, having an open mind and being more of a centrist, a free thinker, is always a more conscientious way to live without causing damage to yourself or others.
