This one’s apparently doing the rounds in the UK. The leaflets, titled ‘The Work of Darkness’, were delivered in the Mill Road area of Cambridge in an area previously represented by ex-councillor Sarah Brown. [Read more...]
Karen Armstrong’s Fields of Blood tries to put a more nuanced spin on the idea that religion is behind most of the world’s violence and oppression.
And I agree. I don’t think religion is behind most of the world’s violence. I know that there are big social, economic and political factors. [Read more...]
I don’t understand the fuss and I think this post is really very commercial. If Homeopathy can treat Ebola and save thousands of lives, its worth a try. How does it matter what it contains as long as it can SAVE YOUR LIFE. A Wife will bless it for saving her husband, a child will bless it for saving his parents, a mother will bless it for saving her son. You make ego sound more important that drawing a smile in people’s faces ! You are demeaning life in this way. You should be infected with Ebola and then after that think about writing this post.
You seem to be a writer working for the medical companies’ profit rather than for the entire human species. Had these remedies been so easy, Ebola would not have been this famous as AIDS because they are almost untreatable. But the most famous treatments come from the oddest of places. Thank God you are not a doctor !
Do remember that it was Socrates who was executed once for proposing once what the entire world believed was false. He was executed for telling that the earth revolves around the earth wheareas the world at that time believed the opposite and for this he was executed. We are far from Socrates time but you are speaking like one of the people from their times and so are the people who are supporting the cause without doing an investigating on their own. Stop behaving like puppets and use the brain God has given you.
I am not saying that Homeopathy is the only solution but it should be given a chance to be one of the solutions.
“I felt the same way as being attacked when I posed for Playboy. To me, it’s a collective fear I think people have. If they’re not reading my books or doing the work on what I’ve been saying, I can understand why they would have hateful feelings. But read what I’ve said!… I’m done talking about it.”
Jenny McCarthy is rather irked that we have held her to her words. [Read more...]
This is the basic battle cry of creationists and none are as creationy as the Discovery Institute!
We live in a world where the Creationists have had to lick their wounds. The world’s changed, gone are the court room battles, but the creationists still tap away at education. Science progresses in leaps and bounds while Creationists struggle to even produce junk science.
So they turn to attack pop science. The conversion of science into an easy to consume format. Many bemoan pop-science as harming science. I disagree.
We are a generation of pop scientists. From Bill Nye to even simple stuff like Blue Peter we grew up with pop science and that easy to consume science made us delve into science as a whole. The best Pop-Science attempts from the creationists include “Kinds”, a concept so convoluted that most creationists themselves can’t explain it properly. In which dog breeds are treated the same as whale species which are the same as all fungi. Hell we all remember the ID argument of the Croco-duck and the perfect banana.
So they are forced to look at pop science and go “pfft. That’s clearly wrong! The Bible says x, y and z and reality cannot work that way!” [Read more...]
