Almost all religion speaks of a next world, a heaven if you will. If their followers uphold the values that religion espouses. Christianity, Islam even Norse speaks of Valhalla. But time and space in the real world is a very different place. Each moment a branch in space-time, each moment, a new world. And while […]
Yup! The first of many Higgs Boson’s, just like the early Greeks predicted, particles within particles within particles ad infinitude.
I heard all the arguments, and if I were in a position to actually have made the decisions, or been allowed to tender an opinion on the actions taken. I know I would have made different choices. But in the end; WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BANKING CRISIS! We the people of Ireland are personally […]
Before the last big election in the U.S.A. I managed to get on to a great deal of political Email lists, as I’m sure many of you did. And while they all managed to end up in the Junk email box, as I have very little vested interest in U.S. Politics anymore. I have seen […]
I may be the last to see this, a war, underground and undeclared, but a war. The opponents are a bit undefined but there is a clear and escalating combat in the world. I’m not talking about Terrorists, (although the establishment who is under assault may declare their attackers as such) I am talking about […]
I was reminded of this ‘West Wing’ after all the bull shit about the Mosque near the World Trade Center And tried, as I might, to remember that the United States was founded on the constitutionally guaranteed right of Freedom of Religion. Who knew?
I was reading a Digg article about atheism, and I was sure the percentages of the population were incorrect. So Googleing up an answer gave me the best answer yet. There is a great deal of room for debate as to the accuracy of any method of estimation (of atheism), as the opportunity for misreporting […]
I almost never link to Twenty Major, more because I have no comment on what he comments on, but this posting Brian Coward is probably worthy of another award. And I could not recommend it more.
If you are interested in the Catholic Church in Ireland Please read that link, and perhaps rethink the Idea that Religion is a Moral Authority to be respected.
I’ve been just watching The Root of All Evil on RTE, of all places, I’m surprised that the Catholic Church allow them to broadcast it. I more or less believe this to be the case for years, there is Reason and then there is Religion, Good verses Evil. Christian Fundamentalists, Islamic Jihadist’s and any other […]
Israel lost the last war with Hezbollah and I Blogged about it here when I wrote that Israel loses the War on Terror and it looks like the Israeli government has learned to change their propaganda to alter perceptions but are we trusting what we see?. Can we recognize a YouTube campaign when we see […]
I’m just waiting for the first fundamentalist religious group to propose that mysterious dark energy and Dark Matter are manifestations of the Devil and that this Darkness is the Biblical metaphor for Hell That We in the universe of Lightness and Matter, are opposed by this Dark Energy and Anti-Matter universe. Would this improve scientific […]
This article Behind the Mumbai Massacre: India’s Muslims in Crisis pretends that the Muslim outcry of violence is over Indian mistreatment of Muslims. Then why the targeting of Americans, and British? Something does not ring true here. This is a guise for something more, a threat of Jehad with a mask of righteous religious zeal? […]
Outside of the blatant Anti-Science attacks like Sarah Palin’s War on Science! There are more subtle attacks, a smearing of Science research that undermines Science such as this article; The world’s smelliest magnets I call BS on these sort of studies, any farmer knows that cows face away from the Sun when grazing. No Magnets […]
While the mud slinging and lies are flying from the GOP, the Obama campaign I’m sure are trying to find a strategy that will nullify the muck flowing from McCain and Palin. This West Wing Clip, while addressing a religious nut job from a talk show, ends with a quote, ‘That is how I will […]
