Preparing for a ritual…

It’s possible to be ‘ritualistic’ about rituals and enjoy them for their own sake, without being committed to their deeper meanings, or, as is often the case, knowing of the reason(s) for their existence. One of the annual rituals I am preparing for is Super Bowl Sunday. I shall thoroughly enjoy... Sign in to see full entry.

Another blow…

Some of you may remember that not too long ago I wrote a brief post rejecting Stephen Hawking’s notion that some day computers might do us in. My objections were partly based on reasons outlined by Roger Penrose some years ago in his book The Emperor’s New Mind, and that I won’t go into here, other... Sign in to see full entry.

Science News: Is there a Fifths Force?

This is really, really exciting, although it may not appear so at first sight. It could be far more exciting than, for example, the recent discovery of the Higgs boson that had been predicted for a long time… First a brief recap: Physics recognizes four forces – gravity, electromagnetism, the strong...

A bit of Science, anyone?

Those of you who’ve been around for a while know of my amateur’s interests in particle physics and astro-physics. In that context I have often wondered how much we actually understand of the effects space travel has on the human mind and body. My guess has always been that, in principle, it affects...

More about and by the Queen’s Chaplain…

A few days ago I had written a post on the obscenity of performing Muslim prayers at a Christian church service, in this case at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Glasgow, which led to the resignation of the Queen’s Chaplain, the Rev. Gavin Ashenden. At the time the response was somewhat 'muted' - I suspect... Sign in to see full entry.

Naut’s Fabulous Carrot Salad…

I thought today I’d give you something unimportant for a change, instead of the important stuff most of you don’t like anyway, LOL… Carrots! Carrots are healthy, they’re good for you, and I love carrots when they’re done right, but I hate them when they’re not. Carrots are one of the best indicators... Sign in to see full entry.

It’s actually worse, much worse…

A couple of days ago I had written about the obscenity of permitting Muslim services to be conducted in a Christian church, in that case Gloucester Cathedral. And to put it as succinctly as possible: the obscenity does not reside in the fact that Islam denies the divinity of Jesus, as it must, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Today just one Response to a Comment…

In my recent post, ‘ Maybe there’s something wrong with British water as well…’, I had cited an article from Express that told how the Muslim ‘Call to Prayer’ was held at England’s ancient Gloucester Cathedral, and called it an act of insanity. Several people commented, and of course I thank them... Sign in to see full entry.

Is there something in the water?

I’ve never been particularly fond of science fiction. Okay, as a kid I read my share of it, but later I thought there was too much fanciful ‘cheating’ going on – I became more interested in what real science was doing, even if it wasn’t always that spectacular…Of course then I became interested in...
