Alan ! It’s the Express !!! what did you expect?
I don’t buy the Express (not even for 10p), but there it was with its nutty headline, on the convenience store news shelf, when I was buying some fresh food, so I saw the front page!
They really are taking the intellectual levels of reading and c…[Read more]

How can I be tolerant with brains connected to nothing ?
Humans brains are connected to the senses of sight, sound, touch, smell and taste, by nerve cells, and via these, they communicate and build an awareness of surroundings.
Communication and social interactions using these senses, build…[Read more]
So while Corbyn is effectively disabling the UK opposition and “respecting the will of the (conned) people” who voted for the wondrous “Emperor’s New Clothes of brexit”, government has been handed over to the brexiteers to put their non-plan” into operation! !
(The latest double talk, is about restricting free movement of people from the EU…[Read more]
@OP – link – Dr. Sutherland and others have no quarrel with Luca’s being traced back to deep sea vents. But that does not mean life originated there, they say.
It should be no surprise that prior to the evolution of photosynthesis, organisms depended on chemosynthesis! LUCA is the Latest Common Ancesctor, from which all surviving modern l…[Read more]

the image from this story says it all.
For these pro-Trump protest voters, –
The saying – “Jumping out of the frying-pan and into the fire”, comes to mind!!

@OP – Congressional Research Service cited the Office of Management and Budget in calling the kind of methodology used “inherently flawed.” No unbiased, empirical cost-benefit analysis would come up with anything close to the number Trump cites.
Ah! The brexeteers must have been using trumponomics when they made their silly fanciful cla…[Read more]
@OP – Trump has said that he is “not a big believer in man-made climate change.”
He is however ” a big believer” in telling an audience whatever they would like to hear, whatever will make them fear some problem, or anything sufficiently outrageous to get lots of media coverage!
He does not have coherent answers to the identified real or ima…[Read more]
It sounds like a very good move in the 21st century.
When my granddaughter reaches school age she will need such a system.
At present she is using the keyboard for accessing children’s videos on computer screen with her dad.

What you say makes me feel even more that most of the more prominent Remain campaigners were either some of the most arrogant people who ever existed.
I don’t see any basis for this claim.
Those who had read and understood the treaties, looked at the prescribed time scales, or listened to the long…[Read more]

A lot of public opinion researches show that only 10% – 15% of Turkish people demands Sharia! Also great portion of the people who say “I want Sharia” don’t know what Sharia means.
It sounds a lot like the Roman Catholics and C of E Protestants, who say, “I believe in evolution”, but also…[Read more]

I can understand some reticence, but he’s clearly pro choice and I think that’s all that matters for practical purposes.

Is there any American left who is so naive that they don’t know that the CIA is out there in the world meddling in the governments of other countries? If so then they’re living under a rock.
There were US and British people working undercover in Turkey – way back in the first Iraq war!

My one question, is it just me or do nearly all polititians right across the board seem to be absolutely hell bent on brexit, now it’s been voted for? As you say May is busy playing the brexit game but she is a remainer, in theory, at least.
The Corbyn and the Corbynites are just too ignorant to u…[Read more]

As I thought about it, I realized that if I had been approached by a non-believer on the subject of evolution, for example, I could not even carry on an intelligent conversation.
It also seems to me that atheists / unbelievers, also have a very different take and viewpoint on the world’s…[Read more]

What humanity must do is make choices that goes against our nature. We have to take steps back.
The two key problems, are the unwillingness to curb the human population explosion, and the tradition of conspicuous profligate consumption, as an indication of high status and well-being.

Meanwhile, in Outer Space.
I always find the term “outer-space” dubious!
The “Outer Solar System” is a much better description!
The “Jovian System” is more specific to the 4 giant planets – 2 gas-giants and 2 ice-giants.
Jupiter and its diverse resonant moons is almost like a mini-solar system.

Like it or not it would appear very unlikely we will have any further vote on brexit.
Although it isn’t unknown for politicians to go back on what they say. However what is being said at the moment on all sides is, the decision is made and the UK will be leaving the EU.
Legally, the decision is n…[Read more]

If we want to do that, convert public transit systems, trains, buses, cars to electricity, then we will have to radically reduce the amount of electricity we waste in inefficient heating, A/C, incandescent lights, commercial lighting, urban lights, etc.
