    The transformation of At-Trinidadi and similar Jihadis into cruel and bloodthirsty killers surely is one of the great tragedies of our time.

    Religion does poison so much.

    A few days have passed since Glenn’s death and I’m still sad.

    Sometimes I feel Trump is trying to cause as much chaos, scandal and calumny possible, akin to a skit on Reality TV or a match on WWF, thinking this will translate into good viewing, ratings and money for him.

    Cheers to Dan’s call to action! And as for looking for leaders, what’s wrong with you? With us?

    Economic development can go hand in hand with environmental protection, actually, must go hand in hand with environmental protection.

    Why do churches who are heavily involved in politics not lose their tax exempt status?

    Several days after the election and I have yet to recover any semblance of normalcy. It all seems like a bad dream.

    Another vote in favor of subtitles and for letting the original language flow as the creators of the film intended.

    What America needs is science lessons for all.

    A widespread trend in our times and I did not find in the article any solution as to how to defend ourselves from the war on science, and the larger problem of how to encourage an informed and thinking society. I don’t have a solution either I’m simply posting in dismay, in frustration.

    According to the Bureau of labor Statistics, in 2000 there…[Read more]

    What is exciting is not that we’ve located the possibility of a new home but that an Earth analogue just might be so close to us. In the larger picture, it seems such Earth 2.0’s are more prevelant in our galaxy than anyone imagined even 10 years ago.

    To me the notion of a secularist transcends the idea of someone who only believes that church and state should be separate but involves something more along the lines that traditional religion inculcates itself in every day life as little as possible, if it does so at all.

    It seems the world has always been something of an awful mess, though if I had to guess, I would say the world today is a less violent one than the one even 100 years ago, let alone 500 or 1,000 years ago.

    Might not the constant 24/7, ever-present “news” stream to an ever-connected citizenry contribute to this feeling that so many of us have that…[Read more]

    Could it be that the DEA, as a law enforcement agency, has a vested interest in keeping as many “laws” to “enforce” as possible? Meaning, if marijuana was classified as a less harmful substance, or lo! even legalized entirely, wouldn’t part of the DEA budget earmarked for marijuana enforcement disappear, along with some career jobs, influence,…[Read more]
