When refuting that ridiculous notion that religion is a science who would be our heroes?

I was just pondering the above question when you hear people accusing non believers of having science as their religion. A patently ridiculous notion but I think it would be amusing to list our gods (heroes) and how the list is constantly growing or being eliminated as we learn more.

And is there a single book or even one pure science example?

So many heroes that we could be accused of worshipping or should that be honouring?

Aristotle,Socrates,Newton,Dawkins, Darwin,…

What I did with my weekend: photos from The Peak District.

For the bank Holiday weekend I assiduously ignored all matters pertaining to monarchy and departed Cambridge to return back to see my family and be in my 'spiritual home' of The Peak District and Derbyshire.



Have wanted to practice photographing long exposures of flowing water for ages - to get a feel for doing it right.



This has proven impossible in Cambridge; a flat-land where the water dies not flow - it ambles ... sedately, like an arthritic sloth on a Wednesday… Continue

Do men doctors actually understand patients who are not men?

Could it be men doctors (MDs) don't understand how

conditions of wellness or disease manifest in women

and children at all so they don't bother to interpret

salient data in these patients. Instead, ritual

proceedures make up the main stay of medical

care for women (ceasarian section operations,

masdectomys and hysterectomies) and children

(Thimerisol laden vaccines, ritalin , fluoride, silver

and mercury tooth fillings which expand and contract… Continue

I just saw the movie Captain America.

just saw Captain America. It reminded me of Max Payne. I liked my own

stint in the service better. This is not a substitute for spending a few years

in the military. Everything that happens there can not be reduced to good

versus insanity. The process of human growth from inexperience is not

found in laboratory test tubes, failed scientific experiments or stoic

exploits. Good training is more than inspiration and for the most part, less

than heroic. War seems to… Continue

Why Religion and God are Unnecessary in the Modern World

I was originally going to publish this at Associated Content but they don't give up front payments for opinion articles so I published it there under a non-exclusive license and will publish it else where including my blog.



Introduction

Beliefs in gods is as old as civilization as is religion. But is the belief in god(s) and religion necessary? Does it benefit society or does it harm society? It is my belief that a belief in god(s)… Continue

Pioneer in Sustainability, Economic Visionary, Fortune 500 CEO: Ray Anderson

In the world of changing business, when everyone is slapping the word Green on the side of their packages, Ray Anderson, CEO of Fortune 500 Company Interface Carpets, is setting the example for substantive change toward sustainability in business. The self proclaimed recovering plunderer, motivated by his epiphany of wrong doing, turned his high polluting, petroleum-based carpet company into a beacon for the direction of future business.



In a talk given at the 2009 TED Convention,… Continue

Obama Pic Decision Turns Back on Consitution and Judiciary



Three weeks after saying he would release the pictures, President Obama is moving to prevent the press from obtaining the pictures of the confirmed acts of torture. The courts have already ruled that any “secrecy” considerations are insufficient to overrule the first amendment right to free press. Obama, ignoring the court and taking a play, from the Bush Administration’s playbook, said today he would try to block the release of the… Continue

Water Powered Car?

On Monday, September 8, 2008, a Ford mini-van was towed into the dealership where I work and I was delighted. It was the first vehicle I have seen in two years that advertised it was water powered.



I have some familiarity with "water powered" cars since I initially choose that to be my seventh grade science project. I submitted building a car that runs on water. Coach Jones said no.



I settled with using a 5 quart ice cream bucket filled with water and two metal plates… Continue
