The Book of Dog (Episode 1): Why Is There Something Rather Than Nothing?

About The Author

I was born and raised in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. I've worked as a short-order cook, construction laborer, crab fisherman, janitor, bartender, pedi-cab driver, copyeditor, and more. I've written and ghostwritten several published books and articles, but no matter where I've gone or what I've done to earn my living, there's always been literature and learning as the constant in my life.

    Here’s the thing. A logician Dog might comment that you try to prove a negative in order to beg the question, but he’s only a schnauzer and their thinking is always muddled.

    If it happened that there was nothing rather than something we wouldn’t be having this discussion. It’s kind of like when you’re dead, you don’t know your dead. Same way with stupid.

    But then we’re not talking cats and dogs.

  • You’re on the right track, but to be honest, it’s the diametric opposite of what you suggest:

    Dog isn’t the one trying to prove a negative. It’s the relativistic, multicultural, postmodern scientists who are trying to do that.

    In fact it couldn’t happen that there is nothing rather than something. It’s impossible. There is no nothing.

    Thank you for dropping by.

    Those damn multiculturalists.

  • Yes. Yes, they represent everything that disgusts Dog, and me: obvious, unoriginal, misbegotten energy.
