Small technical point. just discovered why my system gets redirect errors on some links here. I'll just say that if anyone else runs into redirect errors, just google redirectingat and skimlinks. I researched them and I consider them safe. Not sure why this hasn't been mentioned on TA before. (Ha, if you think I'm just sounding paranoid or whacky, just ignore me!)

I think that such hostility goes well beyond the creationists' aversion to chance--although the idea that the evolution of life is governed by "random" change does seem deeply appalling to them. More unsettling--and more fundamental to their rejection of evolution--is the idea that all forms of animal life are roughly equal in their value as denizens of the planet, the idea that humans are in no way the object of "Creation," that, instead, humans are simply one more fascinating but transitory animal destined to achieve passing dominion over all of the life we know of like the dinosaurs and then to subside into extinction, forever, like 97% of all the life forms that have preceded us.

Christian fundamentalists are convinced that the entire Universe has been created as a sort of frame and context for our perceptions, to provide us with wonder and pleasure and challenges until the end of time. Talk about arrogance. They cannot give up that vision, because it undergirds their entire delusional system of belief. Surrendering that perspective, they think, would mean that life and, indeed, all of the Universe are without meaning and without purpose, which is truly horrifying to anyone who has held strongly to the supreme human-centered myth his entire life.

Doone, that was a terrific video on education. I sent it to a couple of teacher friends. Thanks

Thanks Michel. Graphene is something I'm interested in, oddly enough. Awesome article.

Hang on... I just got an email update from this group that Michel Poisson started the following discussion:
"Breakthrough in Developing Super-Material Graphene"

But the discussion's not there. What happened?

New form of uranium discovered

LOS ALAMOS, N.M. - Scientists say a newly discovered form of
uranium could lead to nuclear power plants small enough to
power the family automobile. Researchers at the Los Alamos
National Laboratory have created uranium nitride, a long-
sought molecule that could provide cheaper and safer nuclear
fuel, ABC News reported Monday. Smaller, cheaper and even
portable nuclear power plants could come out of the discov-
ery, researchers say, using uranium nitride as a next gener-
ation nuclear fuel. "Actinide nitrides are candidate nuclear
fuels of the future," Jaqueline Kiplinger, a scientist at
the Los Alamos National Laboratory who led the team of re-
searchers, said. While uranium's radiation can be deadly, the
new molecule contains only depleted uranium. This makes it
relatively harmless from a radiological standpoint and means
it could be used in chemical and industrial applications,
scientists say.
