"Religion brooks no uncertainty"?

Thom, you made a surprising comment during yesterday's show, of which I was only able to catch a portion between errands. You said something to the effect that "religion brooks no uncertainty," while science is always dealing with the uncertain edges of things.

Video on the culture of SURVEILLANCE-- "PANOPTICON"

Very interesting video shows how the surveillance state is growing across Europe, with the exception of Germany which realizes that similar data collected on the Jews is what made it so easy to round them up when the Nazis were ready....

Anti-GMO strategy -- Is it flawed?

How long will it take -- if it happens at all -- to allow consumers to see GMO contents on their food labels?

Perhaps it is time to challenge this strategy of approaching the GMO scourge primarily via food labelling strategy.

For me having a choice is valuable because I don't want to eat these Frankenfoods, and that choice is what the labelling promises to provide to consumers.

Religion's war on Science

Thom: On my Dish Network Satellite, there used to be good mind tittilating science programs. That was until about a year or so ago. Channels such as Discovery (used to be a science magazine), History Channel, A&E, TLC (impressive name) and even a lot of PBS have been reduced to pabulum for the mentally weak.

biblical law

4,000 years ago, women couldn't own property, they WERE property! Adulterers were stoned to death{Newt}! They confuse Gods Law{The Ten Commandments} with the social-moral standards of that day{a lot less people alive then}. Do they really want to go back there?

Megan on Fox
