Did you also fall in love with The God Delusion?
Eh, not really; it's his worst book in my opinion and its central argument struck me as the kind that makes perfect sense as an argument for not starting to believe in God but really doesn't work as an argument for somebody to stop
believing in God, which is what it was presented as. It still makes a lot of good points, mind, and his writing is always great, and I actually liked it more on the second read, but if you're going to read Dawkins, go read The Selfish Gene and The Ancestor's Tale, which are both utterly brilliant and fascinating books. It also helps against the irritating misconception that he's a bitter old man obsessed with his own atheism.
Mind, by the time I read The God Delusion I was already in love with his books on evolution, so there was no need to fall in love with it. :P
…And where does the alias, antialiasis, come from/mean?
The word "anti-alias", which is a computer graphics term referring to the use of, for instance, gray pixels to portray an area that in a higher pixel resolution would be partly white and partly black, such as on the edge of a solid shape on a background or in a pattern that is too small for the resolution to capture it accurately. Not that the definition matters; I just liked the sound of the word after noticing it in Photoshop and ImageReady, and when I decided to make myself a unique username (i.e. something that would not be taken on Neopets), I figured it was as good an idea to start with as any. Just "antialias" was taken, so I decided to add another syllable at the end; "-is" both worked smoothly with the general flow of the name and is an ending that makes it into a process (just like "photosynthesis"), which I thought was pretty cool. And it was just fun to say (with an Icelandic pronunciation, anyway).
I might note that at the time I did not actually know what the word "alias" generally meant, so the fact this created an alias that sounds like it is against the very idea of aliases was completely lost on me, but now I think it's kind of fun, so. :P
I'll change your name after the new year; apparently my Buffy and Angel torrents exceeded our bandwidth limit for the month and therefore my Internet is a slug right now and I don't trust it to keep up a connection with the server for long enough to change your name.
