"The Ebola virus, as I understand it, is very fragile, and I suspect that the heat, the chemical interactions, and the powerful acceleration from a bomb blast would be difficult on the virus.  On the other hand, any non-zero survival rate for…"

"Joseph, I am glad you are not an isis operative. Damn, that is a scary scenario you suggest. But won't the bomb kill the ebola virus? But whether your ebola scenario is feasible matters not because I cant figure out what will stop isis from…"

How ISIS Will Attack the U.S. and Europe

ISIS is obviously out to make al-Qaeda look like a pussy cat, which means that ISIS will do its very best to make 9/11 seem like a weak, unimaginative, uninspired attack on the Western world.It is almost embarrassingly obvious how al-Qaeda can go about doing that.The Involuntary Suicide Bomber ScenarioStep #1: Set up an ISIS safe-house in the U.S. to house the operation.Step #2: Infect one ISIS suicide volunteer from the U.S. with Ebola and get him into the U.S. and into the ISIS safe-house…See More

Demythologizing Science and Religion (cont'd)

Several people have questioned the dominance of mechanistic thought in the sciences, and I must admit that my understanding of the scientific community comes from reading historical accounts and from conversations with scientific colleagues who began their careers half a century or more ago now -- and from reading works by scientists whose belief systems also go back a number of decades.The gist of the conversations I recall was that people without an acknowledged commitment to a mechanistic…See More

"What I am really looking for, Laura, is someone with an answer to the question of what's going on here and why we find ourselves right in the middle of it that satisfies me more than my own answer does. This post was just my idea of a whimsical…"

"I have not noticed that scientists regard the universe as a machine.  Biologists do regard living creatures as machines - designed by natural selection. Another possibility is the mathematical universe hypothesis.  The idea is that our…"

Andrew Bradford Hoke commented on Joseph Hilton's blog post Demythologizing Science and Religion
"Hi Joseph, I'm not sure this is a fair characterization: "Interestingly enough, mechanistic philosophy, which is (in my experience) the dominant belief system in the scientific community, has done exactly the same kind of thing in creating…"

Not a Photon Falleth ...

In 1935, Einstein and two colleagues published a paper that set off what has become close to a century of theorizing and research about entanglement phenomena.The paper came to be known as EPR from the initials of the last names of its authors – and while they may not have had me in mind at the time, I have always been grateful to them for marking the year of my birth with such a monument.Photons (and other particles plus atoms and even some small groups of atoms) that become entangled are…See More

NASA and the End of Religious Fundamentalism

Back in the year 2000, I sent the following question to “Ask a NASA Scientist:”Cosmologists seem to think of the big bang as a purely natural event. If that is indeed the assumption in cosmology, is it unreasonable to assume (from a purely scientific point of view) that the big bang had a purely natural context, that we will someday come to understand that context thoroughly, and that we may choose to engineer another big bang, if we find it in our interest to do so?NASA's reply:Theoretically,…See More

About Me:
I'm a long-retired college professor with an agenda. Go ahead, ask me about it -- and make my day. Or better still, just google "The Evolution Money Tree," download the FREE PDF, and make your own day. (Well, it's your fault I mentioned this -- you do ask me below "What item does not grow on a tree?" and make me check "Money" before I can post this.)

The usual way of creating a myth is very straightforward: You simply take an entity as it has come to be defined in ordinary experience and grandly alter some of its basic attributes to remove its limitations.

In Christianity, for example, the god myth was created by…

In the last years of the eighteenth century, Thomas Young began to think about the properties of light, and in 1801, he presented a paper to the Royal Society on what has come to be known as Young's Double-Slit Experiment.

What he discovered was that light from…
