Go to: Child welfare report calls for church abuse inquiry

Lol...the tweet that sent me here just said "Child welfare report calls for church abuse" without the word 'inquiry' at the end. "What kind of child welfare report calls for more church abuse??!?!"

Go to: [Updated 15th Jan]- Atheists have no right... - Atheists face Muslim-led censorship from UCL Union

Having heard about this from the society’s president, I’d be interested to know precisely how many complaints UCL Union have received;

Does this matter? Free expression is free expression. It shouldn't matter if the number of complainants was one or 1 million.

Go to: Your Genes: More Virus than Human

Just by chance, I just finished listening earlier today to Carl Zimmer's speech "Viral Time" on this subject to the Long Now Foundation. Interesting stuff. You can d/l the podcast from iTunes or from here: http://longnow.org/seminars/02011/jun/07/viral-time/ (A little over 1.5 hours long, but worth the listen.)

Go to: New PBS Doc: An Atheist Mom Goes to the Supreme Court - and Wins

My local PBS station (Champaign/Urbana, IL, where the story unfolds) aired this a few months back. This is well worth watching as a critical but often forgotten (even among atheists) part of the history of atheism and separation of church & state in America.

And to think that such a large phenomenon originated thousands of miles away! Even at its most terrible, nature never ceases to fascinate.
