Ravaging the Planet for Our Own Amusement

Another A/N blogger, Richard Goscicki, has eloquently written on the connection between religion and the destruction of our planet.  Let us count the ways. 

Time is wasted in religious ritual and obsessing over ancient texts.  Religious wars and terrorism carry on a constant slaughter of humans and destruction of resources.  Religious teachings – that contraception is wrong, that man is not descended from animals but is special, that we are meant to have total dominion over nature…all…

Facts Don't Matter Anymore

"facts are true whether you believe them or not" - Adam Savage (from the Reason Rally)

sadly, it is possible that Mr. Savage was wrong.  sure, on the face of it a statement like that is a no-brainer.  however, in today's world we are seeing a strange phenomena where facts are only as useful as a person wants them to be.  facts are now up for debate.  facts depend on the source from which you acquire them.  lastly, facts are no longer facts if someone chooses not to believe…

Conservatism's Bankrupt and Failed Ideology Must Be Stopped

I don't really want to stray into politics, but as the election draws near, please indulge me this once - at least until the next election season. I apologize for the ranty polemic.



Modern Conservatism is an utterly failed, worthless, bankrupt ideology whose policies have led to utter disaster and offers no solutions to any of the problems that confront the modern world. In place of solutions, modern conservatism has degenerated into an incohate mass of anger, rage,…

On climate change - a detractor.

I like to think that systems can be built to conserve the energy we're using. I'm not too certain about the debate about global warming/climate change. Below is an excerpt from icecap.us, an organization that has a more nuanced perspective. I notice that geologists are the most sceptical in the scientific community about climate change, which makes sense. They are working with a long view--4.5 billion years--of the Earth's history, as opposed to the meteorological view--60 years at… Continue

HOME - The Global Warming Documentary

I've just watched on Youtube a great documentary about global warming (it's called HOME, directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Luc Besson) and I am impressed by the strong message it transmits. I recommend everybody watches it.
The link for the film is : http://www.youtube.com/homeproject
I would like to see some opinions on this subject.
