The Great Debate: No God or Know God?

By Coach Phatty, published on Dec 5, 2013

... opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)

Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work... (more)

The Genesis One Code

By Yvonne Wu, published on Oct 22, 2012

In my new book "The Genesis One Code" I share my formula for converting "Creation Days" to years as we know them in calculating the age of the universe, the sun, and life on Earth. Without any modifications, the formula consistently produces results that match scientific estimates. To become an engineer I studied engineering physics, which had a large physics and cosmology component. I realized then that some answers were missing in science, and continued to search for them both in science and in Kabbalah, which I began studying 13 years ago. This led me to writing my first book The Genesis... (more)

Memory, Software, Hardware & Evolution

By M H Ahssan, published on Nov 1, 2011

...survival in the world. It is reminiscent of the choice of Achilles, who was offered a short heroic life of brilliant achievement or a long mundane one.

Memory and even more working memory is an important limiting factor in computation as is stoichiometry in certain chemical reactions. Evolution is constantly confronted with this kind of tradeoff. In fruit flies, the workhorse of some important evolutionary studies, genetically modifying the fruit flies for better memory can only be done like Achilles by shortening their life span. Thus a non-challenging environment is more conducive ... (more)

Thoughts on Lifestyle

By akagc, published on Aug 30, 2011

In my efforts to understand and help more and more people incorporate personal wellness and fitness into their lives, I reflected on my past experiences to help me remember how things used to be in terms of the lifestyle I lived in my younger days. Things weren't as complicated back then.

In our teenage and young adult years, many of us played some type of a sport with a passion. We were fit, regularly active, and our bodies’ metabolisms were at their prime. I remember the days when I could easily eat 2 super sized Double Quarter Pounders with cheese meals after soccer or basketball... (more)

Ever Since September 11, 2001

By Frank - icare2be, published on May 29, 2011

The impact of the planes hitting the towers and the devastation that followed changed the perspective of multitudes of people and nations. The 9-11 disaster is one of this civilization's cornerstones in building a world united and at peace with each other. This event also created a pursuit for retribution or justice, a saga that continues even today.

Ever since Sept 11, 2001 I believe truth is a matter of perception. I deceive myself. You deceive me, sometimes even unintentionally. We, together deceive each other with our perceptions of truth. From these perceptions come our belief... (more)

Julia's Gift

By SF Girl, published on Sep 18, 2010

...their warrior-like shoulders, while I trotted behind like their pet dog. I didn’t mind. I was only ten years old and Simon and Julia were my heroes. They took me on forbidden adventures in the forest. Our parents didn’t allow us outside the farm property because of the threat of stray revolutionaries, but Simon and Julia flagrantly disobeyed them. It probably started on a dare that escalated out of hand. It was as much that dare as anything else that ended up saving one life, sacrificing another and damning the third.

We often spent the better part of the day in the forest and ... (more)

Intelligent Design and Al Qaeda

By ranfuchs, published on Mar 14, 2010

...

Scientist are still perplexed by the origin of the gene that together with its cousin, the Obesity Gene (discovered in the UK in 2007), seem to have materialized in the US and the rest of the western world out of nowhere – in contradiction to anything we thought we knew about genes and evolution theory.

“This is a big blow to Darwin, and the ultimate proof of Creationism and divine design”, hailed a source in the Church of Intelligent Design who refused to remain anonymous. Further questions by our correspondents about the intelligence of this design were dropped at the... (more)

Humanity Evolves

By Lady D, published on Jan 20, 2010

Why is it that so many people do not want the human species to evolve? What will we find out? It seems that those who preach that religious icons are to be followed seem to be the biggest haters of humanity and well we know how some feel about evolution.

So if we are not to evolve into a more loving species where are we going?

We are evolving whether we like it or not, some slower some faster. That is just life.

We are much more than we know and seem to be afraid of what we don’t know.

We and everything around us is energy. Where we focus is how we receive that... (more)
