What is red? It’s a color, you say. Well, yes, but that doesn’t really explain anything, does it? Okay, it’s a wavelength of light. Yeah, nope. That doesn’t help, either. Red is an experience. A very particular experience. After all, why does that wavelength of light correlate with the particular
Yesterday I was musing about writing a new post. Specifically, I wanted to talk about the difficulty inherent in writing on political topics. This difficulty stems from a multitude of reasons, not the least of which is the reaction you will get from people who don’t agree with you. The
I find that many people I discuss 9/11 with, if they are not totally like that river in Egypt, will still want to see more evidence. Some, however, have apparently very short attention spans. These little YouTube videos that people make are really wonderful. They are short, to the point,
Go vote in the poll before you watch this video. Don’t worry, nobody will know who you are. Up until now I haven’t really written much about 911 Truth on the blog. First, there are tons of blogs that do it better, but also I guess I really had no

A few years ago I wrote a letter to the editor of Bioscience Hypotheses, a journal in which, shortly before, I had published an article speculating on the cause of Bee Colony Collapse. One of the reasons I chose that forum for my editorial was that it seemed to me
A friend of mine recently sent me an article regarding a possible breakthrough in the cause of Bee Colony Collapse (Zombie Fly Parasite Killing Honeybees, Yahoo News, January 4, 2012). Some of you may remember that back in 2009 a friend and I published a paper called Honey bee colony
Okay, so the title of this post isn’t exactly correct. I’m not going to discuss the marketing of establishment propaganda per se. I am going to discuss one of the methods used to maintain it, however. Recently, a friend of mine, knowing that I run with an “alternative” crowd sent
I love this one from Infowars: She makes a great point, actually…. buuuuut… science by definition must be falsifiable – i.e., you have to be able to disprove it. So what exactly WOULD disprove “Global Warming”? Well… NOTHING WOULD! And that’s why, Rachel, “Global Warming” is NOT science!
My friend Richard died this year in January. Shortly after his death I submitted a paper he had written for publication in a scientific journal called Bioscience Hypotheses. The editors were interested, but they had questions. As I had contributed somewhat to Richard’s ideas, I was familiar with them and
From my high school years to the years I spent at Rutgers University studying biology, I have been told that “evolution has no direction.” At first, I accepted this notion, although I always felt that there was something wrong with it. While it’s true that beings do not evolve to
The Discovery networks are really becoming ridiculous. This even aside from the gratuitous references to “global warming” and “climate change” with the not-so-hidden message that people are the plague of the earth. I’ve gotten somewhat used to that message, really. And if you can stomach the backwards values, the shows can
This is very well done and it will definitely get you thinking about our place in the universe. I have no doubt there are civilizations galore out there. To me this is simple statistics. Seeing all of these galaxies out there is very humbling and I think it serves well
Part of my daily routine includes a walk in the park where I practice being as aware of my surroundings as possible. These are techniques I learned reading Tom Brown Jr.’s nature observation and tracking guides, but is also something that I think comes from just being interested in a
What exactly does it mean to be a “soft science”? Over the holidays I got into a discussion with a relative about just this topic. Economics, he told me, is a “soft” science, unlike physics which is a “hard” science. What exactly is the difference? The word “science” itself is
