  • Commented on In Defense of Witlessness
    hm. Good luck?...
  • Commented on The Advantages of Being a Skeptic
    Imaginary botanical beings who don't believe in themselves....
  • Commented on Update
    Interesting article, seemed more a study of societal trends/perceptions than any real examination of the utility of "science" for replacing "religion". I for one find the idea of a finite time on this earth rather comforting and precious. I do...
  • Commented on Update
    here's the simulator, fun and interesting. http://www.software3d.com/Home/Vax/Immunity.php...
  • Commented on Update
    Hi Norm, enjoy the good use of your time. I found this in a dark corner, it includes a link to a vaccine/herd immunity simulator. Accent is a bit jarring, but the model is compelling. http://youtu.be/ZRclbfK5q08 And now I'll check...
  • Commented on Howard Stern - Evolution and Creationism
    I've never heard this show before, that's hilarious. Thanks!...
  • Commented on Origins Project: The Storytelling of Science
    3rd video: "To that I gotta say, oh wow..." awesome....
  • Commented on The Most Busted Name in News
    I get your drift, but the conspiracy people are way out there. There's a difference between being skeptical and filling in the blanks with the most outrageous impossibility. I read a comment from one reader who didn't even believe that...
  • Commented on The Most Busted Name in News
    Funny stuff. A couple of my friends have posted links to infowars.com conspiracy articles which suggest the government set up the boston bombing... and every other shooting that ever happened in the US, ugh. Does this group have any clever...
  • Commented on "Bill Maher: Anti-Science Knuckle Dragger?"
    Ah, now I get you re: #2. Companies could put whatever labels they want on food I guess, but without government regulation the labels would be meaningless. Maybe it is anyway, see "Horsemeat". I'm with you that labeling shouldn't be...
  • Commented on "Bill Maher: Anti-Science Knuckle Dragger?"
    For the record, I did write: 1 - 2 - 3 for the three issues, but something interesting happened... That'll teach me not to preview....
  • Commented on "Bill Maher: Anti-Science Knuckle Dragger?"
    Andyo's arguments against GM food labeling, if I may: Labeling generalizes GM as if it were one thing, which it isn't. The government shouldn't be interfering in the labeling of food. Labeling implies that the substances being called out (GM...
  • Commented on "Bill Maher: Anti-Science Knuckle Dragger?"
    Hm, I suppose if one is discussing processed or pre-packaged foods, labels are a bit of a waste of time. "What sort of garbage is this anyway..." ;-) But for fresh foods, meats, vegetables, knowing something about pesticides, genetic modification,...
  • Commented on "Bill Maher: Anti-Science Knuckle Dragger?"
    ... I looked through those old posts and I didn't see the flaw or flaws in the argument for labeling brought up, can you sum it up in a point or two? The flaws in the arguments against GMOs are...
  • Commented on "Bill Maher: Anti-Science Knuckle Dragger?"
    Nice one Andyo. I think the horsemeat problem is that in America it's often cheaper, lower quality meat, possibly contaminated with human-unfriendly medication. Or just hysteria. And yeah, what's the argument against labeling GM foods? Bureaucratic cost?...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee Thursday
    The article/experiment things are interesting... personally I'm all for GM foods if they are trying to increase yield through pest and environmental protection of the plants - what I find increasingly unpleasant is the programming of plants to resist chemicals....
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee Tuesday
    Woo, Quantum Energy for pets! Nice find - how do you find these things?...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee Weekend
    Re: the organic non-difference - I didn't think the nutritional value was in question. When I buy organic, it's to avoid pesticides and antibiotics - but not to keep them off my personal plate, rather to support those who raise...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee Monday
    Could be because it's hidden in the comments......
  • Commented on A Driverless Car
    Automation is the only way to marry cars and trains, it's a great idea. Pulling a Knight Rider with a bullet train to let you commute from 300k away in 30 minutes would be wild. Still the machines will make...
