Naut's Thoughts

You all know I love my doggie Ben…

From childhood on I’ve loved dogs, and at times when I didn’t have a doggie companion I knew I was missing something important in my life… And you also know I have an aversion (?) for – no, that’s not the correct word – I detest Islamonaziism because of its teachings, its treatment of infidels in...

We’ve had a mild winter – and then came March…

It’s not merely that which makes me abscond from these parts for a bit – but it's a bit of a push. I’ll be flying to Amsterdam next week, and from there – who knows; although I’ve decided not to go to Paris or anywhere else in France or Belgium … I’ve been working hard a straightening out my study...

Poor dental hygiene ? Our luck…

You know of course there are Neanderthals among your ancestors – yeah, mine as well! We may even have the same Neanderthal Great- etc. etc. Grandfather or –mother, who knows…(I need to qualify this: Africans don't have any of that primitive DNA - they're completely modern...) They got to Europe long... Sign in to see full entry.

Why are we bipedal and have tiny invisible tails?

I’m sure that question must have occurred to you, as it once did do me. I had a pretty good idea of the answer, and no longer thought much about it, until I read what you can read below. Our ancestors were quadrupeds for many hundreds of millions of years, and only about 7 million years ago began to... Sign in to see full entry.

Making Babies…

I thought this might get your attention! What the hell is Naut getting into now? It’s bad enough he’s an Islamophobe – now he’s sliding into smut? Well, bear with me… You may recall that on a number of occasions I have mentioned, more or less in passing, that the industrialized countries of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Imagine…

Here is a little ‘thought experiment’ for you. ‘Thought experiments’ are frequently conducted by social scientists who have far greater difficulties conducting ‘real’ experiments than their colleagues in the natural sciences, who only have to deal with ‘technical’ problems in their investigations. A... Sign in to see full entry.

A brief history lesson…Part II

“When Francis accuses those who build walls of not being Christian, as he did of Trump, he essentially accuses men like Pope Leo IV—who did so much to protect and preserve Christendom at a time when Islam was swallowing up the world—of being no Christians at all.” But there is still the odd voice of...

A brief history lesson…Part I

I’m not given to suspect ‘conspiracies’ behind each and every event I consider unfortunate. I know there are hordes of ‘conspiracy theorists’ on all sides of the political spectrum, engaged in ‘sniffing out’ conspiracies on the other side or even on their own, that can be held responsible for the...

New Worlds?

There is some exiting news from NASA – the discovery of seven planets around a star only about 40 light years away. What’s more, three of them appear to be in the so-called ‘Goldilocks Zone’, inhabitable by life. But don’t pack your bags yet – we don’t know for what kind of life they might be...

More on the AI debate, and beyond…IV

This will be the final part of Ball’s very interesting piece. The previous one ended like this: But Fisher realised that the nuclei of the atoms of different lithium isotopes can have different spins. This quantum property might affect the way lithium drugs act. For example, if lithium substitutes... Sign in to see full entry.
