Just finished reading The Big Picture by Sean Carroll and what a beautiful piece of work. Yep, poetic naturalism is right up my alley. None of the silliness of the Pastafarians or bitter butthurt of the militant atheists, it's a cheerful way of looking at existence without God.

The book covers a lot of territory from the basic building blocks of existence at the quantum field level to Bayesian reasoning and Tiktaalik but it's an engaging read.

One of my favorite quotes is this: "Life ends, and that's part of what makes it special. What exists is here, in front of us, what we can see and touch and affect. Our lives are not dress rehearsals in which we plan and are tested in anticipation of the real show to come. This is it, the only performance we're going to get to give, and it is what we make it."
