Go to: Richard Dawkins & Lawrence Krauss Tribute to Christopher Hitchens - 2012 Global Atheist Convention

AW's Avatar Jump to comment 26 by AW

It's reassuring to see that there are others who feel as I do, who miss him as much as I do, although I never had the privilege of meeting him or hearing him speak.

I dread the day when I can no longer find a clip of Hitch that I have never seen before.

Go to: Update - Sanal Edamaruku under attack for exposing Catholic "miracle"

AW's Avatar Jump to comment 23 by AW

I am happy to live in a secular country (Japan), but Sanal is someone who is undertaking real risks to rid his country of superstition. He deserves support.

I just sent in a small contribution to his defense fund through Paypal. You might want to do the same.

A brilliant event, kudos to all involved in organizing it and thanks to Richard Dawkins for attending. Wish I could be there.

Go to: The world has forgotten the real victims of Fukushima

AW's Avatar Jump to comment 7 by AW

As a long-term resident of Japan, I have to concur with the main thrust of the article. The real tragedy was forgotten and the dangers of Fukushima largely overblown.

That being said, there was a level of incompetence on a nearly incomprehensible level, starting with the initial design of the plant. Unfortunately, the Japanese nuclear industry has a long history of such incompetence. As a result, the economic damage to Japan became far, far higher than it had to be, and we will continue to pay the price for quite some time to come.

While nuclear energy may well be a safe method of power generation, if you have a bunch of clowns running it, it becomes dangerous. That is the current energy quandary in Japan.

Go to: Honouring Christopher Hitchens

Incredibly moving. Christopher Hitchens is not showing how to die, rather how to live.
